I have a 1994 Isuzu Trooper EL. The passenger-side front speakers (I believe both the one in the door and the one by the mirror) occasionally cut out. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone know of a fix? Is it in the wiring or the head unit?
Also, I am interested in adding keyless remote to this vehicle. The vehicle came with a security system, but no keyless entry. Has anyone added this feature, integrating it with the original equipment security system? If so, what components were necessary? Any suggestions on brands, etc. and places to look?
I had no problem with lease turn in. Isuzu turned my lease over to GECAL, which is pretty common. They did charge me for mileage but nothing on minor dents and dings. In fact, I snuck one over on them as they failed to notice a dent behind the spare tire mounted on rear door. You guessed...some one popped me in parking lot.
GECAL offered me an unbelievable price to buy, but I wanted to go ahead and get a '99. Anyway, make sure once they take it away, they assume all responsibility in transporting it. That way, they can't come back on you for damage they didn't catch upon final inspection. HTH.
Jeff Y. Speakers cutting out? It's probably the speaker connections (in the door)that are vibrating loose and causing it to cut out. That's what I would check first. It's also the easiest thing to troubleshoot. Just pry off the speaker grill, remove the screws, pull the speaker out, and turn on the stereo while wiggling the connection to see if it cuts out. If it does cut out you've found your problem. You can push the connector back on tight to fix the problem. You may even have to take the plug apart, recrimp the connector, then put it back together.
If not the connector, it's somewhere in the head unit, harness or wiring - all much more difficult to troubleshoot. Good luck!
I got a good deal on a class 3 hidden hitch from truckaddons.com Pd. $165 for hitch, wiring, receiver, and ball. That price includes shipping. I also checked with trailerhitch.com and they carry their own brand--no Reese or Hidden-- and their price was $145 with no wiring(didn't even have it in stock other than spliceable) or receiver and ball.

That rear bar really looks good. I'd like to get one, but I might have to do some convincing at home. Can you email me the guy's address, email, and telephone. You say it is $150 right. I could also pick it up depending on shipping charges. Thanks.
You can bill it as additional rear-end collision protection. Also if you think about it, $250 for the spare tire cover alone would make the $150 worth it. Yeah he is in Brooklyn so a pickup is doable. Also was gonna ask you if you wanted to do some light 4wheeling over the summer. Some of the 4x4 guys are planning a trip to Uwharrie, NC for a 3 day weekend July 19-22 IIRC. If you decide to come to that, Matt could bring it along. You can contact Matt at http://independent4x.com
