Sound not working when rear driver side door is closed...?
 
So around over 3 months now my radio stopped working, although I still had sound from the blinkers and the seatbelt warning. I tried ordering a new radio antenna mast recently after I realized that my original antenna was practically bent thinking it would fix the issue but it didn't. I even tried playing a CD with no sound. The screen still works as it did originally, showing the station or CD playback but just no sound at all. Checked the fuses and they're all fine.

Today, as I had my car on I, opened my driver's side, rear door looking for something and lo and behold... sound comes from the radio loud and clear. I play with it and see that the sound literally turns off and on as I slowly shut and open the door. It shuts off even if the door is not even closed, but almost closed. Any ideas?? I miss not having to use my phone speakers for music :no:

Did some extra research and found the issue. On the rear driver side door at the bottom, there is a connection there that was basically not bending well as the door closes. I managed to jimmy it around a bit with the radio on for reference until I was able to slowly close the door while the sound was still working. Don't think I'll be opening that door anytime soon...
