    Now I got it. All I thought you did was just disconnect the rear controls and left everything else intact. The jumper in the photo is the 1 going back to those rear controls ?

    My dash trim is still off, so will be easy to remove.

    Thanks.

    edit ; went back and re-read your earlier post. Stupid me, you mentioned the harness.

    so just got to work and found the compartment but it is not a serviceable part so only way to get it is by salvage yard. cause if you get at the dealer it only comes with the rear console panel not separate.

    Yeah, I thought it odd that there was no part # on it.

    Ok, I disconnected the jumper harness but still have only front speakers. In the photo below, 3 ( and 4 obviously ) were connected to the back of the head unit. I would imagine 2 & 3 are part of the jumper harness, so I separated 1 & 2 and plugged 1 into the head unit. That is what gave me front speakers only. harness 3.jpg
    I am stumped, what to try next ?

    when i get home i'll see if i still have the harness there and get good pics.

    if i remember i pulled the harness 3/4 out, and that leaves you with 1/4. Which i only used 4 to connect the aftermarket radio harness and left 1 just hanging there but i ran the remote wire from the new radio harness to a lead on #1.

    quick question, are you still on factory speakers or did you upgrade them. my stock rear speakers were dead and i also had no sound, as soon as i replaced them they worked.

    If you used a new harness, I believe I found the problem. I am going about this attempting to use only original wiring ( minus the jumper harness I am trying to delete ).

    Everything is stock and all speakers worked before I began this project.

    Glad I could help. Went back to the junkyard today and found 9 more.

    Maybe I should start selling these, if anyone is interested.
