Bypassed the small internal speaker and ran it to a door speaker hookup behind the dash, now no sound at all
I opened up my tme-m740bt took out the small speaker, ran speaker wire from the 740 to have it work with my door speaker. worked for a few, started giving me trouble when the stereo was on, whining sound, so i assumed the amp wasnt getting along with the audio coming in, so i took the wire off. tried a few different places, to include a sub. nothing seemed to work, hooked it back up to the small speaker just to make sure it wasnt my speaker wire, and it worked. i was contemplating putting the small speaker back in when it stopped working all together. no sound at all now. cant really call alpine since i took apart the product.

To removed the door panel. Remove 1
screw in the grab handle pocket, 1 behind the door open lever, and 2
screws at the forward edge, the bottom edge, and the rear edge. Remove
the small window-corner speaker if equipped. Then lift off the door
panel. Don't lift too far, there are wires to disconnect.
Door won't open?
those of you whose door is shut and you
cannot open it, here is the trick that the Kia mechanic.
Insert the key into the door lock. In one quick motion, simultaneously
turn the key to the unlock position AND pull the handle. It took us
several attempts to finally get it to work.
did you bypass the amp thats mostly located in the trunk on the right side behind the cover. Either its there or under the rear speaker deck. You have to bypass that amp before the speakers will work and there is a kit for that too.
With the stock radio installed, turn on your parking lights and listen for the chime (same sound for key in ignition with ignition off and door opened). Does the sound come from the front left speaker or from behind the dash? If it comes from behind the dash, disconnect factory stereo and turn lights on again, id the chime still there or does it go away? If the sound comes from the left front speaker or goes away when you unplug the factory stereo, you need a different harness, its called a chime harness Pac Audio part #C2R-GM32R, could be the thing you need.
you must remove inside door panel all the screws going into door including screw for inside door handle. you will be able to reach it then. try not to break any brackets surrounding screws(you will have a loose door). took me 15-20 min.
My suggestion would be to bypass all of your video components whatever you have be it a vcr, dvd player,whatever and just hookup the tv direct to whomever you receive your cable tv from. Because it was working before you moved it and disconnected the external audio source. Remember if your using HDMI cables they are your audio and video together and you don't need to hookup anything else from that device to the tv. Just FYI. Good luck.
You need to look behind the internal door handle with which you open the door, the internal door handle with which you pull the door shut, below the door pocket, and if there is one fitted, behind the little "tweeter" speaker by prising off the front.
You may also find some around the edge of the door panel.
Many vehicles have factory amplifiers that must be activated or bypassed when installing a replacement head unit. If the factory amplifier isn't integrated or bypassed, you won't hear sound from the factory speaker locations. Another possibility is that you have a shorted or pinched speaker wire or terminal. A short at any speaker will shut down the head unit's internal amp, killing the sound to all the speakers. The RCA outputs wouldn't be affected, so the subwoofer keeps playing.
