    Hi All,

    The rear speakers in my 2003 Jetta aren't working. I've checked the wiring in the doors and it looks fine; pulled and reset the connector too.

    I read somewhere that the amp could be causing this issue. Does anyone have any information that would help me troubleshoot this problem?

    Also, it did not have original stereo when I bought it, just some cheap Pioneer. I have replaced that with a Kenwood.

    Thanks...Jeff

    im not sure what amp you have but could you possibly switch the front/rear outs from your amp? I have had channels on amps go out and i swapped the output to a channel i knew worked. that could tell you if the speaker was bad or the channel.

    Do you have access to VAG-COM\VCDS to check the system with output test?

    I have 40 error codes for speaker which is basically check all wiring & connectors. Do a resistance check.

    Check resistance of no output speaker and compare it with a speaker that works.
    Speaker resistance can vary between 1, 2, 4 & 8 Ohms.

    Read Measuring Value Blocks (MVB).
    Perform Output Test.

    Fitting aftermarket stereo's causes more problems.
