    hi there
    while installing my new aftermarket amplifier, i first tried to connect the amplifier to the under seat sub woofer passenger side for some reason the left side (passenger) front door speaker and sub woofer stopped working. so i completed the sides wiring anyway.
    i then had to use the drivers side under seat subwoofer which when completed gave amazing sound to the amplifier and worked great but the left side still didnt work but it was good enough to listen too.
    last week i was reinstalling the subwoofer after i had removed it for a long journey and i saw a spark on the wiring and my right side has turned off as well. now i only have rear shelf speakers that work and nothing else i am going loopy checking all the wiring
    i have done a scan and have the following fault codes with inpa

    That's seem to be a lot of hassle you are going through...why did you not use a plug and play adapter to bring all your speakers wires back to your amp without having to cut into the speakers wires?
    Check this out:
    Plug & Play Cables

    Anyway since your speakers are no longer working, I suppose you put your wires back together, I would assume they are blown.

    hi there
    thanks for your reply
    I do not have an amplifier so could not use a plug and play wiring. It only has 6 speakers and had followed advice on the forums to use the subwoofers under the seat to wire the amplifier. speakers do work as i have checked them with an external source just no signal coming from the wiring from car

    Yes of course you can use the the plug and play harness I linked, it is meant for this very same scenario.

    You do not need to hook up into all those individual speakers, you can go from the radio loom, even with a ISO loom you will get sorted a lot quicker.
    The Quadlock to ISO loom will allow you to extend all your speakers connection back to the trunk. Or once again, you can use the Mosconi plug.

    In this particular instance, we made our plug using an ISO plug. A lot cleaner than cutting existing wires. Here, you just need to cut the ISO connectors off and bring all the wires back with your own loom.



    In this instance, we use the Mosconi loom, that is the one of the left, as you can see, it is very clean. This e60 had only 6 speakers too. We did not need to cut any speakers wires at all. Everything is done from the head unit qualock plug.

    No you simply use a loom such as this one.
    BMW (40 Pin) Quad-Lock Fully Populated ISO 2 Car 2009 £19.10 GBP

    You plug to the original radio harness, that literally extend your original OEM plug, then you cut the wires from there to join them to 5m long wires that will go to the boot to plug into your new amp.

    Make sure you use the plug diagram so you know which wire is which speaker signal (- or +), do them by pair, one at a time, test speaker, then move to the next pair of wires.

    I hope this helps
