1999 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
1999 Suburban LT1500. The radio will lose sound every once-and-a-while if I go over a small bump, and then it will return the next time I hit a bump. The radio remains on, buttons work, display is lit, everything seems Ok other than "no sound". The 'burban has the original Delco stereo with the remote CD player located beneath it in the dash.
From what I've read these systems have an amp that drives the rear speakers, and that the front-two door speakers work directly off of the radio. Of course, you can't trust everything you read on the internet (present company excepted).
I've also read some online content that indicates the amp has a cut-out feature that kicks in if there is a short in one of the speaker wires. So. Finally my question:
Does this sound like a speaker wire short issue? Or an issue with the radio itself?
I hate to pull the door panels off to test the speaker wires if the issue is either with the radio or the amp. I'd consider replacing the radio with another factory type but hate to spend those dollars if the issue is with the amp or the wiring. Any suggestions for my first course of action?
have the same problem?
