Alright, I have a 2001 silverado, with a pioneer stereo. I recently got a newer pioneer stereo head unit, replacing the old one, and matching all the colored wires from the new stereo to the wires on my harness, and connecting the blue wire from the stereo to my blue remote wire that runs to my amp.
One would assume it would work.
It did turn on, but only for about 10 seconds before it cut off, along with my amp.
(can the amp not cut on without the remote wire from the stereo telling it to? Is my amp ok?)
I have rewired it all three times, checked my fuses, everything.
What am I doing wrong?
I've read that you run the black wire from the stereo to metal in the dash and ground it,
and I've also read that you run (idk if its red of yellow) the ignition wire to the fuse box, rather than running the black ground and (red, yellow) ignition wires from the stereo to the harness.
All I know is all the colors are matching and fuses are good, yet it wont even turn on, nor will my amp.
Any help would be beyond appreciated.
