    i would hate to be captain obvious, but did you try pressing the power or source button on the hu? i know i almost **** myself when mine didn't turn on, but all i had to do was hit the source button, otherwise check power and ground wires, and that no bare wires are touching and the harness is plugged in completely, sometimes they're kidna tough to get completely together

    well it should mean that atleast your power antenna/remote wire is correctly connected, other wise i really dont know what to tell you, check connections i guess, or it could be a lemon?

    You might have to do the ground straight from the deck. In my 94 maxima the bose system worked fine but when I hooked in my new head unit I had to run the ground wire straight from the deck wire harness to the ground, apparently the stock ground wasn't good enough or something.
