Question about Car Audio & Video

Adding aftermarket audio to factory amp.

I have a 2001 DODGE STRATUS R/T and the factory system was ok but i want more. I am replacing the head unit with a jvc cd player useing the factory speakers with the factory amp.

Now for more bass I am adding a boss 1000 watt amp, a boss 1.0 farad capacitor, and a boss 12" two sub box to the preamp output from the head unit

I had the head unit, the amp, and the box hooked up in my truck and the lights would dim when i turned it up. I hope the farad capacitor solves the problem with the STRATUS.

My questions are there any problems that I should be careful with and will this farad capacitor kill my battery since there is no remote wire to turn it on?

I have a 2006 lincoln Navigator with the THX sound system. I need a colored wiring diagram so I can replace the head unit and hopefully retain the factory door speakers and amp. I already have my JL Audio...


You can buy an aftermarket radio harness adapter for your Navigator from ebay quite cheaply. I would not recommend butchering the factory wiring to install a replacement head unit. I found this one (will work as long as your Lincoln wasn't fitted with SATNAV) -

Can you replace a stock amp with a after market amp without rewiring speaker 2001 sport track


It depends on whether you have the standard audio system or a premium sound system. The standard system has no factory amplifier, the premium system has a factory amp and some other gimmicks that are hard to interface with. A proper OEM amplifier upgrade will require changing the factory speakers with stronger replacements, as well as adapting the factory head unit output to a signal your new amplifier will like. More often than not, it is more economical and better sounding to just change the factory speakers and run the replacements off your factory system. To drastically improve the sound system, it is more effective to just change everything.

Alpine head unit CDE-9870 will not play sound through speakers of a 2003 pontiac vibe. what could be some issues to cause this?


This generation of Vibe may have the upgraded audio system installed from the factory. In order to get the audio from an aftermarket radio to play through the factory amp, the factory remote turn-on lead must be located. If you are using an adapter harness, it may have the wire installed, just attach the blue/white stripe wire from the Alpine to the blue or blue/white stripe wire on the aftermarket harness adapter.

EGR Valves rarely go bad. the EGR solenoid is common though, you can get it aftermarket, thats ok. The valve bolts on, 2 bolts, the solenoid just has hoses and a small elec plug.
