skyline gtr doors and rears cut out

My door speakers and rear speakers cut in and out all the time while driving. I have subs in the back that always stay on and don't cut out. The subs are powered by a little 45rms x 2 2 channel amp (not lookin for huge bass) which i don't beleive would draw enough juice to make it a power problem. And if it was a power issue i think the subs would cut out first

The speakers cut in and out when i go over bumps and close my door. Also if i stop at a light and it cuts out i can usually creep up 6 inches stop and it will cut back in. But . . . it also cuts out when im driving and let off the gas which would bring me back to a power supply problem.

The problem did start after i replaced an actuater for the heat vents so i had removed the cd player but i have since removed it again and checked the connections and i don't think thats the problem. Around the same time i had removed the glove box to get at the a ac airbox a mouse made a nest in over winter :x hahahahaaha i know so funny! there was a pinched wire i believe is a blower fan motor trigger wire when i moved it i saw a spark from somewhere and the blower started the stereo semmed to cut out for a millisecond but not sure if this was related. I cut out the bad part of the wire replaced with connecter

I beleive the stock amps in the ceiling in the back of the trunk. Could there be a bad connection or bad stock amp here?? My speaker box could have hit something putting it in or moving it

Rechecked headunit wiring its perfect. I tryed disconncting each wire one at a time and none cut out all 4 speakers with out loss off power so thats definatly not it. Guess it could be in the headunit itself but could be the head unit its a pioneer deh-p300ib

Thanks for any suggestions!!!!!!!!!!!!

Double check your speakers to be sure that there are no wires in proximity to sharp edges or bare metal - especially if aftermarket speakers have been installed.

Past there I would suggest wiring directly from the CD player to the speakers and bypass the factory amp.
