    Default 2010 Silverado radio issue

    My kids kept asking for me to turn up the radio and I was wondering why. one night it went from soft to loud and I started playing with the fade and balance and realized the back speakers were not working much of the time and would occasionally kick in. I'm guessing it's something simple like fuse or connection. Can someone point me in the best direction to figure this out and get my radio working properly ASAP? I'd sure appreciate the help.

    I'd definitely wait for more opinions, as I'm not an expert but something similar happened to me. My problem was the connector in the back of the radio was not seated properly. I'm not sure if it wiggled loose over time but one day, like you, I just noticed half of my system wasn't working.

    I understand how frustrating it is to not having your radio working properly. I love my music while I am driving. I might not be able to give any technical advice but I would like to look into this concern for you. Private message me if I can be of any assistance.

    No DVD player/entertainment center.

    Jennifer - I appreciate your offer but I've been told that since my truck has surpassed the 36k warranty Chevy isn't going to help me.
