sounds like the wires maybe crossed try this 1st fade your stereo left or right if it sounds better with one speaker playing your polarity is backwards unhook 1 of the speakers and reverse the wires hope this helps
check your rear lights, which ever goes to the earth, I/e the metal casing then that is the neg, and that will tell you if the red or brown is positive! to connnect your speakers. It's an easy process of elimination.
your batterie cant handle the power drain... try getting a coil... (its a tubular device made to store extra energy and then release it all at once so it does not strain the battery) try wallmart if you want to try an inexpensive one first.
studying the radio schematics , i'm seeing a radio amp fuse under the hood ,in the main fuse box under hood , 30 amp , check that for starters , if the amp was out you would only lose sound , would like to get a fix ya vote , comment back because i have other thoughts on your schematics , and do you know if its the base model or premium sound , with or without cd ? , thanks .
Double and triple check your connections. I soldered my connections on a speaker a little while ago and I found out that it only looked soldered and it was alittle loose and would cut out. Also you could check a site out, installdr.com. You should be able to find out the wire colors for you speakers there. Although I don't think that, that will cause a big problem. If you are listening to music at loud volumes, I would also recomend an aftermarket amplifier. It adds so much more that a factory amp can. Just food for thought. Good luck.
According to Crutchfield.com, you have 6 3/4" speakers in the front and rear doors, 4"x10" in the rear pillars. The 6 3/4" locations should be able to fit 6 1/2" and 5 1/4" speakers using adapters. I would imagine the same could be said for using 6"x9" speakers in the 4"x10" pillar locations.
