    I did check for a fuse on the amp (factory) but didn't see one. I assume it is the amp anyway. Is it located under the rear seat?

    It does have a factory amp underneath the back seat. No fuse located on the amp though. Unless that is not the amp? Side note - the door chime isnt working either.

    All fuses are ok. Found a wiring schematic for the amp and it seems to check out. Starting to suspect the radio

Hi.

The 05 equinox was sold in two version, with stereo only, and with factory amp and stereo.

With stereo only, the stereo built-in amp may have failed. You will probably need to replace the stereo.

If there is a factory amp, or an external amplifier installed, then the amp may have failed. In that case the external amp fuse (at the back) may have blown. Wiring at the back of the sound system must also be checked.

The only test that can be done without removing and testing the stereo system and wiring is disconnecting battery cable for one minute. Before disconnecting check the truck manual, and ensure that you have the anti theft stereo code if needed.

Regards.

Ginko.

    If you have a volt tester check if there is 12V getting to the amp. If there is power, then the amp is probably gone. If there is no power, then the fuse must be located and replaced. I am looking for the fuse location right now. Check if fuse is built in the power cable to the amp.

    Check fuse 6 in the fuse block. If that is not the correct fuse, check all 20 Amp fuses. Location of the fuse is not the same for all models.

    If the amp is powered the problem can be the main unit. Check wiring to the amp. The definitive test is done wiring the main unit's output directly to the speakers.

I changed the brake pads on a 05 equinox


Did you bump the ABS pickup at the wheel hub when you changed the brakes? Or are the wires maybe nicked? The noise is normal and might go away depending on the brake pad type you replaced with. The ABS problem might be caused by you.
