    I recently installed an aftermarket pioneer stereo, and everything works fine, except the front left speaker. I wired to the parking brake properly, tapped into the ignition, and matched up all my connections properly except for the front left speaker. Ive tried every possible connection out of the wires that are left, and no sound plays. Any suggestions?

    Is it the factory speaker? those are junk mine went out after about 4 years. I would try a new/different speaker. That's the one you hear your blinker and warning chimes.

    Yes, factory. One guess i had is that the speaker was out before changing the stereo and i didnt know it.

    Yeah, sounded like a bad speaker. You get it replaced then?

    Its sounds like it is. If you do replace it, change out the other one.

    Hey, I don't have help for your issue, but where did you tap into the ignition? That's the only thing keeping me from having a finished install.

    You have to get all of the panels off under the steering wheel. Right where the key is, there are a couple wires. Its the brown one. Just tap into that one with 18awg wire running to the head unit
