I got problems.

Everything is working except for the sub. Is it possible I blew a fuse on the factory amp?

When I move the rca around the plug I hear the sub trying so its not a fuse. Any ideas?

Bad connection somewhere. Check that extra plug. Or double check the amp turn on wire.

The truck is dirty right now but i thought i would throw some pics up of what was done.

For Cstalls:











I will run the power wire on the other side of the truck for the amp when i get the sub.



Moved the Ultraguage up top and mounted the BT microphone next to it.



Here is a quick shot of it in the truck. I will get some better ones when i get some light.

I finally got this thing tweaked and tuned and made it sound awesome! The highs are so much more crisp now. I got the factory sub working about equivilent to what it was before but now the highs sound so good the sub def is lacking so I will probably be getting another sub in the very near future. Once i figured out the HP filter navigating through this unit was a breeze. The green button display (1 of 4 options) matches perfect with the gauges too.

Aux+DroidX+Pandora&Groove Shark = Worth every penny! And the BT is still working flawlessly

If anybody is looking at this unit I definitely give it a +1!

me personally I would of soldered all connections and heat shrink tubed them and not ever worry about bad connection and also wrap foam and tape it around that harness conectors to never ever have a rattle behind the stereo on the rough roads thats what I did.

There are no loose connection or rattling. This is how I have done it in all my past vehicles and never had a problem. Your way sounds a bit overkill honestly but I guess it cant hurt. There is not even enough room in these trucks for rattling behind the unit anyways.
