Stereo Shorting Out Speakers Thumping

2008 Enclave with Nav and Bose Premium Sound System for some reason the speakers have started thumping like bass. It does this when the stereo is on and off. This morning we have figured out you can make the speakers thump with the turn signal. But they do this randomnly and daily. Took it to the dealer evidentally the door speaker on the driver shorts out and causes similar problems so we replaced that and it did not work. Has anyone else had this problem?

If you push the back sliding console and turn rear speakers on or off it is worse.

Re: Stereo Shorting Out Speakers Thumping

I have a 2013 Enclave. I have complained since I had the car new about radio issues. I would get static, zapping sounds in the car. Radio would go off, data on screen would be scrambled. Of course, didn't happen at the dealer so could never get resolved. Yesterday, the radio froze, came on then heard large pop sound and the radio and console went off. The left turn signal is blinking intermittently and making either the zap sound or the pop sound. The back up camera goes off and on and the warning triangles do not show up. I'm waiting for the dealer to call back to take in for repair. Anyone had this issue? I've reached my end with this car now.

Re: Stereo Shorting Out Speakers Thumping

Thanks for your response. The dealer is replacing the radio, I'll let you know how it turns out. But I have to say that I am so frustrated over this issue I am ready to get rid of this car. I have fought this battle for so long and got no where. Even when it died as it did, the dealership wasn't ready to admit the unit was defective for 2 1/2 hours of my wait in the dealership. As info, I also contacted Buick customer service on the issue in December 2014 and the only result was putting it back to the dealership to go over the same things with no results.

The radio was replaced and so far so good. I did have to go back to get the Bluetooth reconnected though. I'll update if anything changes.

I think it must have something more interesting than this.

Re: Stereo Shorting Out Speakers Thumping

I wanted to give an update on my radio issue after the replacement. Periodically I have heard small sounds, similar to the static like sounds I heard before the radio actually died on me. But last Friday, another large sound of static came thru the car. It sounded like the car was being zapped. I'll mention it to the dealer but unless they hear it or the radio dies again, I'm sure they won't pursue it. I also lose signal a lot on the XM radio. I don't know if connected or not.
