That is strange. You bought a new radio? Is this a factory radio or aftermarket?

check the speaker wiring in the trunk. most likely, one of the speaker wires has shorted out, and since the doors are protected, something in the trunk may have caught on the rear speaker wire. start there.

Default Radio problem

Yes, the radio was factory.None of the speakers work.Took to dealership and they can't explain it either.

if just one speaker wire is damaged or shorted out, the radio won't work and you'll have this exact problem.

Default Radio problem solved

Thanks to keep hope alive I went to trunk and looked at both speaker connections and apparently something had hit one connection and it got pushed to where the wire made contact with cone. I disconnected speaker and all others started to play. Bent wire out from cone and it started to play. Wow never would have guess that could cause such a problem. Thanks for everyone's help. Rob
