06 GT Aftermarket Stereo Install, stumped, please help!!!!
Hey guys, first post here, but I have searched these forums endlessly to try to figure out what I am doing wrong with this install and it is driving me crazy. I have an 06 GT with monsoon...
First off I do not care about the DIC, and as I'm sure you know the chimes still work without that adapter. I actually had an aftermarket DDin in the car before, but had it installed by Best Buy. They figured it out somehow but I cannot.
I bought the 70-2103 Metra harness, antenna adapter and wired it up to the harness for my Pioneer AVH-X3500BHS DDin stereo. I then ran the red 12v power wire down to the car stereo fuse in the box on the passenger size, but the stereo will not turn on.
I have tried two harnesses, checked all fuses, and even tested the new stereo on a battery charger by splicing the constant, 12v and connecting them, then connected those and the ground to the charger. The radio turned on then but will not turn on when I plug the harness into my car.
Does anyone know what I am doing wrong? I've had my dash apart for two days in the freezing cold and I am on the verge of losing my mind haha. I've installed tons of stereos in the past and never ever have I just been completely lost on what is going wrong. PLEASE HELP!!!!
Thanks in advance.
