Keeping it as simple as possible, sounds to me like there is a fault in the wire itself, test the radio by using different speakers and wire.
There is also a fuse or 2 behind the radio (built in) and they sometimes blow, the sporadic working speaker can be a symptom of a slow-blow fuse going. Hope this helps..
The Internal light is normally tied to your dash lights on a factory installed radio. Find the main p[lug on the back of the radio and unplug it then try it with a new fuse if it still blows then it is the wiring if it does not blow the fuse when the radio is unplugged, chances are the radio is bad and will have to be repaired or replaced.
Hello! Identify which fuse is blowing...also, does it blow as soon as it is installed or does it blow when you turn the key? Lastly your not referring to a fusible link but a maxi-fuse...ie...40; Correct?
Are you using the same power feed from the old radio? If so, your new radio may require a higher current fuse. Check the manufacturers information the came with the custom radio and make certain the current (amps) required is the same.
If the new radio has a higher power amplifier for increased audio, it will blow a low rated fuse.
On the other hand, it sounds as though you may have pinched the power feed wire in the radio bracket, trim cover or have it resting agaist a sharp bracket. So when you put the car in drive, the dash flexes enough to cause the short.
Does it blow the fuse when you shift to reverse?
let me know.
make sure nothing in cig lighter socket..coins,etc..if nothing present,unplug cig lighter socket and replace fuse..if fuse doesn't blow,it's the socket causing fault..if it does,unplug radio,plug cig lighter back in and replace fuse..if fuse doesn't blow,radio is cause of fault..if it does,then ther is short in wiring
