  1. I have a 2006 Chevy silverado 1500 crew cab. Factory sound system, single Cd, works fine, but there is NO sound at rear speakers-fade goes silent. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.

  2. Bud, run a primary wire to your steering column and use the brown wire in the ignition switch harness. This brown wire will provide you with a switched power source. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 air bags installation.

  3. I need to hook up a compressor for some air bags. I need 12 switched. I know to go to the fuse box. But how? I know you cant just jam a wire along side a fuse. I see no way to get under the fuse box. Help 2006 Chevy silverado 1500 crew cab.

  4. I am having same problem as few above with my 2006 Chevy Silverado radio. Front speaker go out and sometimes come back on (VERY RARE ON THOUGHT)… I just bought this truck used…I never thought to check and see if the RADIO WORKED!!DUH..UGH. I would greatly appreciate some wisdom on this issue. Thanks in advance!

  5. I’m trying to replace the antenna on a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. It’s hard to trace the antenna cable. It appears that it may go behind the heater core. What needs to be loosened or removed to install/replace the cable. The antenna was broken off at the car wash and I need to replace the antenna and the cable that comes from the fender mount. Can anyone help? Thank you.

  6. Solved the speaker problem in the 06 GMC Sierra. Speakers are garbage. Hooked up a new speaker and it works perfectly fine. Looks like to solve the problem I am going to have to put in 4 new after market speakers. Tweeters dont have to be replaced though cause those were the only thing that continued to work.

  7. I have to fourth the problem that TWRaymond, Fred Randal, and Anthony have. I am assuming the tweeters work because they require little power and the others are not recieving enough power to run. The only thing I can think of is that it is an amplifier problem however I can not find the speaker amp. Anyone know where the amp is located or if I am wrong and something else is causing the problem?
