My right speakers started cutting out today, figured out that if I pushed on the connector at the radio that they would come back on.

I pulled the console, unplugged/replugged -- no change. Unplugged, sprayed some contact cleaner -- no change. No visible damage to either the wires or pins on either side.

Is it typically the connector? Or a broken connection inside the radio side connector? Or anything common I can check?

Thanks in advance,
Iz

Probably a cracked solder joint in the radio.

+1 the connectors sometimes are loose and slip off or a pinched wire.

Front or rear, or both?

Both front and rear, only the right side. If I reach under the top cover and jiggle the big rubber boot around the connectors, the right side comes back on -- speakers and rest of the wiring has to be good, problem is at the connector.

You guys are just not paying attention.

I would check the speakerts first before tearing stuff apart...

Hook up another speaker...

Check the speaker itself- use a known good 1.5v battery and connect it to the speaker leads... should be a scratchy sound... no sound = bad speaker...

trace it back from there...

Thanks, Dave :)

Its not in the fader, I can physically move the one connector at the radio and make it stop or start. Just looking to know if there is a known problem either with the wires, connector, or the pins coming out of the radio.

No problem, we get a lot of that.
