View Full Version : Where to look...

Here's the scenario. Recently, it has started to drop into the 40's at night here. When it is colder outside and I turn on my radio, the power antenna will not come up. At the same time, the rear speakers only put out low tones and no highs. After about 10, and sometimes as high as 30, minutes the antenna will pop up and the rear speakers will put out their full range of sound. This happened last year and I meant to have it looked at but forgot about it until last night. This condition does not happen during the hot summers...only now. Where is this short happening? Any ideas are appreciated.

Is this a factory system?, If not,How many components are there? Did you install it? are the wiring connections solid ? Does this problem happen only at a specific time, in a specific place?...etc. Need more info bro!

Snootch- Factory system but I just added the GM power antenna. I didn't do the wiring...just the mounting of the antenna. This is only outside temperature specific. When it gets ~ 55* or less, it will happen. During the spring/summer it never happens. Any thoughts? The speakers freaking out and the antenna not popping up are directly related for sure...almost like a grounding out somewhere?
