#11 of 173 Rear speakers; 1 or both have a short?
Aug 28, 2006 (8:09 am)
Hi, I have a 2000 Sunfire. Sometime back I noticed that the rear speakers weren't working. Later the same day they started working. Then only one side would work. Then both again, then neither.
I had the Extended Warranty at the time so I took the car to the Pontiac house. When I picked the car up the Service Mgr. said that one of the rear speakers had a short in it which was causing this problem. He said that factory replacements were about $17 each but he stated that I might want to upgrade to a better set of speakers (aftermarket) so he didn't replace the speakers.
Anyone ever heard of a shorted speaker causing this kind of problem? Seems kinda odd to me. I don't want to replace the speakers only to experience the same problem.
If anyone has heard of this I would like to hear from you. I appreciate the Forum's time. Thanks in advance for any ideas on this issue.

Dude, seriously, you need to get a haynes book... if you have a 2000, it says 1998 and later models (this book is up to 2004), the combination turn signal/hazard flasher is mounted to the brake pedal bracket above the steering column.

My 1995 is doing the same thing... the blinking was sporratic... now neither they or the hazards work... I suspect it's an issue with the alarm system (looks like a hack install anyway) and I'm going to have it removed this weekend and see if that fixes it.

Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. I was trying to get around buying an expensive manual for a car I've already spent WAY too much on (don't get me started!) and would like to get rid of NOW!

I have a 95 pontiac sunfire, and my horn became very weak. So, I decided to change the horn. I had the same problem. Where did they put the horn. Its under or in the front right fender in front of the passenger side wheel. It catches all the road grit (really good place for a horn - NOT). Good luck. I mounted my new horns(2) just in front of the frame that holds the headlight mounts. Tight fit but works, and I can get to them easily. Hope this helps.
#17 of 173 Wierd Problem
Sep 11, 2006 (5:50 am)
1999 SUnfire here. I have been having my radio lose its time like there is a power loss and slow cranking so I changed the battery. A while back my ABS light came on so I checked the connections on the module and started car and it went away. It did that every now and then untill Friday it and the brake light came on and the anti-lock started engaging and disengaging on its own...turned it off then back on and no prpblem. Was driving to work this morning and every light on the dash came on and off and the door chime started dinging. When I pulled over to turn it off it wouldnt start back. It was like a complete power loss.

I have a 99 Sunfire GT and I'm experiencing the same with my rear speakers. Sometimes neither one will work and sometimes just the right rear works. The fronts seem to be working fine. I have not looked into what may be causing this. So this note is just to let you know that someone else is having the same rear speaker problem.

I just had the same thing happen to me today. Every light on the dash came on and off and the door chime started dinging. Car will not start.
Did you ever resolve this problem? What is the fix?

I disconnected the battery for a minute or two and tried again and it started right off the bat. My ABS light still comes on from time to time nothing more like that. I am beginning to think it is computer related. I used a code reader to check for anything and it didnt show any malfunctions.
