Thanks. Keri

When you say "radio" what speakers play the radio?

1. When putting in a DVD. The sound should come through all the speakers.
2. When playing over the air channels...the sound will only come from the TV...unless you set it up to play over the surround speakers (instructions here https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=3&theater )

3. If the radio is on and only the dash speakers play, then I would check the fader in the surround settings.

Ok thank you.... When I said radio....I meant the sound was coming only from the dash speakers....we tried a DVD...and no sound at all from ceiling speakers... We read another post about a AB switch...where can we find that if that would maybe help us...but thanks for that link as we would like the tv to come thru those speakers as well

We got rid of the AB switch in the 2015's.

If you put a DVD in, does the sound come out of the dash speakers?

When playing music select the little bar graph looking that...that should take you to the equalizer. Then click on the BAL-FAD which should take you to the fader/balance screen. make sure the dot is centered.

If still not...maybe there is a loose connection somewhere. Unlikely, but not impossible.

The bal fad was in the middle ...we tried pushing to the back speakers only but got no sound..... When we put the DVD in,the sound, we think came from the tv itself... But we will double check that tomorrow... We know nothing came from the ceiling speakers... So appreciate you trying to help us...I knew we should of double checked at dealer....live and learn

That's weird. If the door speakers play, then the ceiling speakers should play. They all come out of the same harness. I would check connections at the speaker and at the head unit. U-tool should pull the head unit easy enough.

Hey kd i have a 2014 3051S and at first thought i had a problem. If you put a cd in the indash radio, or listen to an fm station, try turning up the volumn sort of high. I know in mine the volumn through surround is less than dash speakers. So with volumn low, but hearing while in cab i had to increase to hear music in kitchen. I did not know about fade and will try that to see if helps me. Also check the settings on the main switching box in cabinet above couch could be connection loose up there, or improper switch setting, which will affect operation.
I'm not a bad guy and hope it helps you or someone else does. Mr. Clemens is a great guy on here and we are lucky to have him. He is pretty frickin smart also.
