Passenger rear speaker not working

The passenger rear speaker isn't working. The guy before me just swapped his system out and put the factory back in. When I turn the radio on or seek channels there is a very obnoxious flicker of static. Sounds like one knock on a door

Where do I start?

He probably pinched a wire on the wiring harness , so try pulling the head unit out of the dash and wiggling things around, or he damaged a speaker pushing too many watts on the factory speakers. You can check the resistance on the speaker with a digital ohmmeter, it should read right around 4, or 8 ohms depending on its factory rating. Better yet, just get a pair ! (Hah hah !) Pick up a pair of replacement speakers that give you a little room to grow in case you upgrade your head unit later on. Have fun !

Test the factory speaker and it came in at 3.5 ohms. Hooked up the tweeter that was already in the truck and it has the same knock type static. So it's definitely a head unit problem. If I play music through just the rear passenger side the sound is very muffled and statickey (if thats a word). Is it worth messing around with the head unit or should I plan on replacing it? THank you.

You can get a factory head unit in good shape on eBay or Craigslist, or maybe from another Org member for dirt cheap, but I'm glad I got a touchscreen Pioneer head unit for mine. It plays anything on a disc but blu-ray, I have A/V cables to the back for my boys to watch DVDs when traveling, have front AND rear cameras that sure make it easy to back to a trailer and not bump something in front of me, and I'm working on a way to get the Torq app to display in real time on it. Plus, it is really customizable and SOUNDS GREAT.

Anything specific to look for when seeking out an aftermarket head unit? I would be interested in getting it to display my monitor as well through Torque app. How are you planning on doing that?

For the larger display, go with 7 inch. Some like Pioneer, some like Kenwood, JVC, Alpine, etc. I've read some on here about a Parrot or something like that. Some can be gotten with navigation, some without and some of those are upgradeable later. I'm an android guy, some prefer iPhones,and you can play music using bluetooth or with a USB cable or iPhone adapter. I have seen some write-ups where guys have actually mounted a 7 inch android tablet in their dash and that gave them even more capability when using am/FM radio and other apps. I went with a Pioneer AVHX 5600 BT because of all the options to connect or upgrade so many things. If I don't find a how-to for the ELM to display on the screen, once I've uploaded the app and gotten a Bluetooth ELM for the OBD port, I'll probably have to use a cable from my phone's HDMI to A/V on the unit as kind of a "mirror mode" from my phone screen. I'm sure it can be done
