I'm having an issue with my speakers/head unit in my MKIV R32. I have the factor double-din Monsoon unit and all factory speakers. A couple of days ago, I started my car and all I heard was a really fast clicky/static sound from all of the speakers. I took the Monsoon unit out to check the harness and connections and everything seemed to be fine, so I unhooked the battery for about 10 minutes and then the speakers started working again.
When I started driving, the fast clicking noise came back and then a lot of static from the right rear speaker. I hooked my car up to the VAGCOM here at work and it had a code of "short to ground - right rear speaker", so obviously there's an issue with the speaker or its ground. Is the factory wiring for the speakers designed to turn all the speakers off if one or its ground is bad?
