well without being there and following the wires i dont see how anyone will be able to help u . u might have to take some stuff apart . take a look at the amp and see how many speakers are connected to it . if it looks like they all are then u will have to figure out where the wire has come undone . and if not then u will have to rewire everything so it works.

Your going to have to start following the wires. If both don't work chances are they are not hooked up.

easy sollution. swap the front and rear wires on the amp. If your fronts play, you will know they arent blown, and that the wiring isnt broken. If your rears dont play, its the amp

only real way to do that is to tear apart the doors to see the wiring. is the HU an aftermarket unit?

a am willing to bet that they they didnt hook the front doors up at all. You will be better off just re wiring the amp from three channel mode that they are running to 4 channel mode. did they wire it to the house speaker or did you?

I have been thinking about your car for a while and i am curious to see if i am correct. I bet they still have the factory speakers up front. They probably blew them all and just upgraded the rears because they are easier to do and just cut out the fronts completely. Please let me know what you come up with.
