Hi All,

Am now the proud owner of a '02 K12 lt. We (Carol) and me really love the ride and comfort. I have noticed the rear speakers are very low in volume and the right side is a bit distorted in the sound. I have tried all the usual easy things, like fade etc., but to no avail. Any suggestions?

Either you have a case of some connectors getting corroded . . . or your amp is starting to bite the dust. The connectors are located under the left side of the radio's stingray, and you best take care of the one at the rear of the amp while you're in there. Take them all apart and apply some dielectric grease to them all. (RadioShack carries it) Good stuff Maynard. Also adds some zing to a good, thick Reuban...but that's for another forum. :) If that doesn't do the trick, you might be looking at replacing the amp.
Here's to hoping it's just corrision.

I was skeptical about greasing any electrical connector. But, since many mentioned using it, I tried it after my rear speakers went out, and I started hearing distortion in the remaining front speakers.

I pulled all the electrical connectors apart in the radio's wiring harness, shot them with a cleaner, ProGold, greased them up with contact grease from Auto Zone.

It solved the problem which hasn't resurfaced again.
