Anyone know where the rear speaker wires run after they go into the truck from the door? And what colors are they?
Thanks

Look at my earlier post with the photo showing the wires spliced together. It's one of those.

Well this may explain my rear speakers not working.

Would it make the front speakers hum too?

I just found this! Our '02 had the "special" VCR option within the center console. I traded out the center console for the center jump seat. Never thought it would affect the rear sound. So, for the last few months we've had no sound in the rear. I was about to take it to a "professional" and have them fix it. I did ONE LAST GOOGLE SEARCH and low and behold, IT WORKS!!!! The numbers are different but the colors of the wires are the same. Thanks to all!

Amen to that!!! I was getting ready to run speaker wire to each individual speaker. Two little modified quick locks, and done.

Make sure you actually have rear speakers

I just installed a new Sony headunit in my 2011 Ranger which I just purchased. I had no audio coming from the back, I double checked the wiring harness and all was well. Checked the fade on the headunit and it was good as well.

I then popped the factory headunit in and guess what, there was no audio coming out of the back speakers.

I then took the speaker grills off the back and guess what...there were NO speakers in the back ROTFL. Its kind of hard to have audio out of nothing.

I was a bit ticked off, but happy at the same time that I didn't have a wiring issue.

Since I just had to do this as well, I am supplying updated photos to the workaround for console removal OR the rear audio control not working and causing the rear speakers to stop working. This will hard wire the speakers to go around that console/rear control unit and make them independent of them.

Find the plug coming out from under the carpet and splice these together:



Cut the tape back about 6 inches



GRY/BLU to TAN/WHI



ONG/RED to WHI/GRN

Rear speakers back in business...
