the dealer told me its the amp, because only the right side speakers work. theres a company in new york that fixes them but thats still kinda pricy.

new from dealer $800
refurbished by new york company $350

anyone had to deal with this?

any easy fix solutions?

MY03-06 dash or MY07+..

know this may sound silly,but you have checked that the balance is in the middle and you haven't accidentally turn the right side off..

I'd rather just short them out at the plug and have right right and left in parallel than pay that.

What are the chances of just one channel failing on that amp? I would have thought all or nothing.

Is this AMP1 under the drivers seat (left side)? If so they commonly fail and I believe can be repaired vs. replaced.

ya its the amp1 under the seat. took it out and apart. it does have some rust on it but its not crazy. it did go away one day and then came back for last winter and then in the summer it went away again. and its still only on the ride side now. :confused:
