Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I purchased a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban that had an aftermarket radio in it the did not
work, the dealer pulled a factory head unit out of a GMC Suburban for me, the GMC was a
few years older, I believe between 96 and 99 maybe. I installed the head unit and the right  
2 door speakers will not work.  I pulled the speakers and the both work when connected
to the left door wiring.  Could the pin connector on the back of the radios be in different

Or possible broken pin connector in replacement radio,or blown right channel in radio.


Thanks, I pulled the head unit out of my Denali and same thing, no sound out of right speakers.


Broken connection between radio and right side speakers


Ok, after several hours there is a faint sound in the Right Passenger speaker, the Rear Passenger has nothing and the speaker in the rear piller next to the tailgate works fine, I still have no clue what would be causing this.

If there is an amplifier in the system, that's more than likely where the problem lies, see diagram

I purchased a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban about last week. And about three day I stop to get gas and when I tried starting it and it wouldn't turn over so I was thinking it was the starter so I went to get a whole new starter but that didnt seem to be the problem I know what's wrong with it
