My 1994 Nissan Pathfinder SE V6 I have the 4 Rear Speakers aren't working I looked at Fuses under the Dash and everything seems ok. The Front 4 are fine. I've pulled out the Deck and the Wires look fine but Im not sure about the Two compartments in the Trunk 1 on each side would either of those be for the stereo? I've pulled the Hoodiner in the Trunk off and the Speakers are connected so I'm wondering were I should look I'd appreciate your help thanks in Advance!

Most of the time this is caused by loose wiring or a bad connection. You might want to remove all of the wires from the speakers one at a time and clean them and make sure they are tight. You could also turn the radio on and wiggle the wires to see if they start to work

Nothing happens at all the front ones just stay on and work fine that's why I was wondering if there're might be a fuse in one of those compartments in the rear trunk or some kind of wiring for the speaker's.

Is this a factory stereo? Have you tried turning the rear speakers all the way up using the stereo?

OK, next try and check the amplifier it is located behind the right quarter panel trim panel. Check all connections and try to wiggle the wires there with the radio on. Check to see that it is getting power on the green/white wire.
