Both Front doors wiring harness issue

About six months ago I noticed that the door chime wasn't working some of the time. Then I noticed that the front speakers would only work some of the time. I decided to investigate and found that were the front doors wiring harness connects to the cars coupler has over time gotten water in to the coupler and the pins have corroded and broke. I would like to hear if any body else is having this issue.

Yes, others have had problems. Not a lot of them, but a few. If you search for door harness here, you'll probably find them.

I believe that rbarrios has even posted pictures of the harness, if you can believe that!

Not sure if it is on only this site, or perhaps one of the other forums also.

Re: Both Front doors wiring harness issue

hi.
I had posted pics of the connectors on the rear doors-- from when I was doing the 3rd row speaker upgrade.

For the front doors--- its good to have those one of those little mirrors on a telescoping wands- (available at auto parts.)

Re: Both Front doors wiring harness issue

I've had the same problem with my door chime, and front driver door speaker not working also! usually after it rains, when the humidity is high, or it is under 65-70 degrees outside... weird I know. and I thought it was weird when I've read on other threads and posts on this site of other people mentioning the same thing, but there's actually some kinda weird truth in what I, and other people are saying about this.

I've also read that it could possibly stem from something wrong with the sound/radio amplifier, or the wiring harness(es) coming from it, to the speakers.

something that GM needs to address and fix, I think. I love jammin n rockin out on the way to work and lots of other times, but pisses me off that the sound system doesn't sound as good as it should (and previously had, up until last summer)....[/color]

Unhappy Four doors; Water in wiring harness issue

2010 Traverse
The problem started with the rear passenger window not closing from the drivers door occasionally in 2014. Through 2017 it was a minor inconvenience. In October 2017 all speakers except the tweeters stopped working intermittently. It appeared related to Car washes, Rain and or High Humidity and cooling temperatures that caused condensation.

When the door connectors were disconnected, Water poured out or dripped out heavily. We allowed them to drain for several hours several times. We sprayed the connectors with contact cleaner and blew them dry with canned air, reconnecting them after another hour or so.

The problem was resolved until we had a moderate rain.

Water can run down between the doors and frame but should not ba able to enter the harness.

Has anyone found a permanent resolution to this defect.

Go to the auto parts store and get some dielectric grease. Take the connector apart and put some grease on each pin and put it back together.

Some have also cut a very small hole in the bottom of the rubbery harness conduit at the very bottom when it's connected to allow incoming water to drain. I had to do the same in my 2008 Outlook with the blower motor cover (above the front passenger floorboard below the dash) to allow accumulated (dash? condensation?) water to drain after it killed one blower motor.

Currently: 2015 Traverse LT AWD in Blue Velvet Metallic with Black Interior & Dash. 20" wheels with Yokohama G055s. Tri-Zone Air with Heated Seats. Bose Stereo Upgraded with Polk Speakers. Aftermarket Hitch. OEM Roof Crossbars coming.

Previously: 2008 Outlook XE FWD in Midnight/Tan. Tri-Zone Air. Premium Stereo w/ Polk & Pioneer Speakers, Roof Rails, Aftermarket Hitch/Wiring. 239K miles -- 85% Highway.
