After all connections are completed correctly - Press the RESET button. The RESET button on the housing must be activated with either a ballpoint pen or similar pointed object. The RESET button is to be activated for the following reasons: • Initial installation of the unit after all wiring is completed. • Some the function buttons do not operate. • Error symbol appears on the display.

you can get a amp to work on any deck although u may have to rig it a little bit all u need is sound coming from the stereo and if u will take the rca one end and cut it and strip it u have a wire inside each one and then u have ground wires surrounding the inside wire twirl them up like 1 wire and then strip back the inside wire hook that one to front left pos wire and hook ground wire to front laft neg and do the other rca wire the same just hook it uo to front right or if it has rca jacks on the back of the stereo just hook ur rca wires into them and to the amp
did you hook up the power antenna or amp. turn On wire? make sure you should ha a wire that is to power an antenna and this is the wire that has 12 volts as soon you turn On your stereo and send 12 volts to your amp. but if you don't connect this wire, the amp will never turns On
Very well could be your amp setup. The only reason you would get lound sound from the stereo is if the mute is on or the audio outputs are fried. have you tried to hook up the stereo directly to a single speaker?
See if this link is of any help. I know how crazy these new wire colors can be. I don't know why they don't keep it simple and universal meaning all constant power be red, alt power blue/white, ground black, etc. etc. Even my Hyndai has crazy wires. my red is lf speaker, yellow, lr speaker, etc. Goodluck with it man.
you can buy the proper harness for any vehicle at most stereo shops or even some at WalMart, but you have to hook it to the one that plugs into the radio. The colors on each harness will be identical- just match them up.
I had this problem as well. On my harness was a wire for connecting the factory amp. You have to connect the Automatic Antenna wire to the Factory Amp Turn On wire. Should be a blue wire to a blue wire with a white stripe.
There is for sure a hook up problem my friend. There should be a memory wire that always has power to it even when the car or the ignition is off. Then there is a switched type wire that only comes on when the cars ignition is on. Check both of these wires in the car. Check the car wiring diagram to confirm this. To confirm the wiring in this vehicle, I
Good Luck with this install. And if all else fails, don't take a chance and blow out the unit, take it to a pro to be installed. Good Luck found the right wiring diagram for your car. Confirm this wiring diagram with this one you have. Go here:http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/stereodetail/955.html
