Re: Radio Replacement Help
It would be unlikely that something is wrong with the radio itself and the wires running through the car, as its probably the least complicated wiring in the whole car, ie, no computers, just power and wire, the rest is controlled through the unit itself. It is more likely how everything is hooked up.
Check your wiring and any connections you made. If you used electrical tape and twisted them together, thats probably the problem, the problem being a lack of experience and proper tools. If thats it, just keep trying, get some crimp connectors or solder and try again.
Good luck with it all, just dont give up!
Also, some systems require a Anti-theft bypass, but if you already had an aftermarket, thats most likely not the case either.
