Thank you for your time. So from reading that page you sent me, it seems to be a problem with my headunit, not the wires or amp. Correct me if i got the wrong thing from that page. If i install a new head unit would that work as well? also do you have a solution for the "low voltage" thing?lol thanks man for everythin so far

Hi, sounds like you lost your amp turn on. Look for a blue, or a blue-white wire, that is your turn on and or power antenna wire. Turn on your strreo, check the output voltage with a meter on that wire. If you have voltage, check the battery power on your amp. If you dont have power on the turn on wire, use an acc. voltage that shuts off with the key. That should do the trick.
Post by the "Owner". The "Fix" was a New Stator. (Broken Wire).
After recharging the 2.5 year old AGM battery 3 times with acceptable results each time. (13+ volts & 14.5+ Volts at high idle) Purchasing a new AGM Battery, a month & a half of "pulling my hair out, all the "great solutions posted on fixya", being stranded 3 times with a "dead battery", I took the Bike to the Shop/Trained Mechanic. Many Thanks to the Post concerning the broken copper wire & "fixya.com" for allowing me to Post. Thank You all.....
assuming that both subwoofers are working fine: check what voltage output your headunit has (RCA output voltage) and match it to your amplifiers input sensitivity (GAIN) eg: if your headunit has 4 volt outputs then on this particular amplifier your gain knob would be completely to the left as if in the off or 0 posirion.
if u are not sure of your headunits output voltage you could check the manuals specification page or send me the barand and model number of your headunit and I will check it for u.
hope this helps. let me know if I can assist you any further.
You are correct that finding a universal harness is much like a unicorn hunt. I have been there before.
Your best bet is to bypass the harness, but use the same style female wire terminals that the wire harness holds together. I have included a link to www.mouser.com of the specific page of their catalog of these style connectors. You are looking at figure G.
What you will need to do, is use 18-20ga wire, solder the wire to these terminals & heat shrink them. You will then be able to individually connect each wire terminal & wire to each male pin on the headunit. It will be important to strain relief so they stay connected. Make sure you are not shorting any pins together, as this can cause damage.
In all honesty, i would look for a new headunit if this is a cheapo. The time & money spent for this solution can easily go awry when installed in a car. Installing the headunit back into the dash could knock them out, a bumpy road, etc.... Your headache may be much smaller with a different unit. But then again, like yourself, its what you do for fun.
Do have access to a volt meter or an old school 12volt test light? Turn the light on with the light harness loose from the light assy. and test each wire to the frame or the negative post of the battery. The wire that has voltage or will light the light is your 12v pos.You can make a test light using a old 1157 tail light bulb, using 2 wires tape one wire to the base metal and the other, hold on the silver bulb tip with one hand, put one end of the wire on the batt. neg. post and use the other wire to search for the voltage in the light harness, voltage will light the bulb..
