I recently had the left hand speaker (and split setup) stop working at the drop of a hat. In a ute with only two speakers, this is little annoying.
I check the wiring loom at the door, the wiring behind the headunit, replaced the speaker with a known working one, but everything but couldn't fault anything.
What I'd like to know is, where the does the wiring for the left-side speaker run? I may have a short or a break somewhere a long the way.
Anyone have any ideas?
Okay, worked it out..... the left hand speaker wiring runs along the right side of the car. The problem was one of the plugs behind the driver's side kick panel wasn't contacting properly.... moved the plug around and it worked.... Strange stuff.
All I need to do it work out when I turn the volume up, it turn the volume down.....
That's the most common fault with VY's! My volume up made it turn down, etc as well and track seek up would go down and vice versa. That's when I only had 40-50,000 k's on the clock too. I got hold of a new set of steering wheel controls off a member of this forum and and I havn't had it happen again-.... yet. There is another fix, but if you can get hold of some steering wheel controls and change them using the How-To on VY,VZ steering wheel removal, you'll be sweet.
'Ah well, I suppose it had to come to this.'
The steering wheel controls are fine. It's the headunit.
It's not a huge deal, just annoying when I try to alter the Bass/Treble/Balance/Boost. Same as the volume, if I turn it up, it will go up 1 unit, down 3, up 1, then down a few more.

I had that problem with my VY, when i would push the volume down button, it turned it up, and when i pushed the volume up button it muted it, then sometimes it would work like its supposed to... its a strange problem...
Their based off resistance so when there's a problem it really plays with it as it gives false readings to the head unit.
