Hi there. There appears to be more than one electrical issue with your vehicle.. A common issue for GM vehicles, is IPC (instrument panel cluster) related concerns. Diagnoses needs to be performed to rule out a poor electrical connection at the back of the IPC. The speakers on the left side not working, may be the balance on the radio was inadvertently changed. It could also be a poor connection or internal stereo/radio failure. I recommend having your vehicle’s inoperative electrical components, IPC and radio be diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
