Question Stereo and subs work but rear and door speakers donít on 97 hardbody

I recently installed a amp, subs, and a new head unit to a 1997 Hardbody, and since after the installation Iíve heard no sound from the rear or door speakers (They are the stock ones btw) but the subwoofer works perfect, as well as the stereo. Iíve triple checked my wires and grounds and as far as I know everything is perfect and right where they need to go. The rear and door speakers worked perfect before the installation also. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did you use an aftermarket wiring adapter?

Run a new set of speaker wires to the speakers, a lot of time the old wiring goes bad

You can use a 9 volt battery to test the wiring. Just disconnect the radio and rig up some wires to the 9 volt battery. Touch the 9 volts wires BRIEFLY to the wires for each speaker. You'll hear clicking or static coming from the speaker if the wiring is complete.

But if everything was working before the install my first 2 guesses are incorrect wiring and a bad radio.
