Check the ground wire to the radio and speaker because it is probably loose. You may have to solder your connections to the radio and speakers.

SOURCE: No sound comming from the left side speakers in my 04 Envoy XUV.

first> road vibrations can cause cable connections to come loose so you can start by taking out your radio and making sure all of the questions in the back are connected as they should be.
Second> if this doesnt seem to work then the next step is to check the wires going to the speakers that arnt working (this will b quite a job, but if you can do it, it will save u quite a bit of money) .. checking the wires your checking for >bad connection to the speakers >cuts in the wire or if any part of the wire is touchin any other metal object

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. More then likely, you have a loose wire in the back somewhere. You will need to take the radio out and inspect the wires in the back. Look for loose wires/connections or possibly a cut wire.

sounds like it has a bad connection if it only happens over bumps as this will jar the connections causing them to make and brake contact causing the radio to cut in and out,weather its an internal or external problem.

2002 Nissan Sentra radio stopped playing.

It could be one of a couple of problems. First check the speakers and see if the cone rubber has worn or fallen out. It will be very visible if it has( the most outer piece of the cone ). If this is the case you can just replcae the speakers and all should be good.
Secondly it may be a short, if one of the wires connecting to the speakers is touching steel anywhere, the stereo will short the output circuts and there will usually be no volume. Any good stereo has a protection circut, so it doesn't blow the out puts on the stereo up.
Im guessing its the first problem, those nissans have pretty budget speakers made of paper cone..
