If there is moisture inside of the amp, it can definitely keep it from working. if it remains wet long enough it can cause corrosion of the board and parts.

Can not guess for an answer

I wouldn't be using any vehicle that overheats
but most folks do & try to ruin the motor

Could be a water pump issue
Could be a thermostat issue
Could be a bad head gasket
Could be a coolant leak
Could be a timing chain issue
Could be worn,damage & blocked exhaust converter
Could be 8" of leaves in between the condenser & radiator
Could be failed & clogged radiator,from someone adding stop leak
& ruining the coolant system

You know all that
Should I keep adding to the list

I need the wiring diagram for the IAT Sensor in my 2005 Chevy Tahoe. I nned it to hook up one of those cheap little "chips" just to see how it works before I spend $ 300 for a Superchip.

Wouldn't you be better to spend $300 on tools ,reference material,
test equipment or a code reader, than that nonsense & possibly
ruin your vehicle & most certainly accomplish nothing

My subwoofer powers on, but I get no sound out of speakers or subwoofer and all of connections are correct.

First off....never connect a speaker when the amp is on or vice versa. Second, I would get a tone generator and test that the speakers have not been ruined and check the amp to make sure you did not blow that. Most amps have a protective circuit to prevent damage from over heating or hooking up wrong. Also make sure that you have enough output wattage for the way you have them wired..

Install two 10" subwoofers in a 2002 grand am monsoon.

The only way to Correctly do this is to Run an External Amp for your Subs. If you continuously run the Subs off of the Factory Amp It will Ruin the Subs and the Amp Eventually. This way you can still Connect the Rear speakers as they need to be. Please Rate my solution, I need all the Help that I can Get! Thanks!

The amps are probably going into protection mode. The wires are most likely not hooked up correctly. Make sure you have a good ground, good power source, and the remote wire is run correctly. Also make sure the speaker output wires aren't touching each other, and you have the correct ohm load for the amp. What kind of speakers/subs are hooked up and how are they wired?
