    Default dead stereo... HELP

    I have a 2004 Chevy Suburban fully loaded with the bose system. About 2 weeks ago the stereo was acting up and if you would crank the bass there wouldnt be any at all. It did this for about a week and then randomly there was no sound output at all. If you turn everything up there is still no sound. I checked the amp and stereo fuses and they are fine. Also when you turn on the rear stereo controls every speaker in the car pop very loud.
    Please help me

    Hi, I'm new here! My name is Chris and I've been into Chevy trucks since I was 13.

    I'm mostly an engine guy, but it seems like one of two problems:
    1) A defect in the head unit itself, which probably means replacement.
    2) A bad ground, usually preceded by a whistling noise in the speakers when the truck is running.
    I'll add more suggestions if I think of any.

    Id say either your stereo or your amp crapped out on ya. Pop your head unit out have hook up some speakers right off of it to see if your head unit is working or not. If either are bad i suggest getting after market. It will be cheaper and better the stock 94 stuff.
    94 sub 6inch lift 34inch bfg mt. massive rework project soon. the audio system hit 150.3db so now its time to rebuild and try for 155db. mudpuppy is also getting a new engine, rebuilt ifs, dual 500amp 15.1vdc alts, 5 5,000amp batts, ant the combined wattage with the new system should be close to 15,000watts. this is going to be a wild ride boy and girls.

    you have a short in the wiring somewhere, if you move the stereo and here a pop or an arch thats what that is.. i would recheck all the wiring and make sure the connections are snug and that they have good connections and arent loose.

    I've got the same problem with my 2004 Suburban. Had lots of static in the AM radio freq's varying with the engine RPM. Then the speakers just quit one day. On the drive home yesterday, they started working again. Can someone guide me as to where the head unit is or where to check for the ground? Thanks.
