what year 1500??... the factory radios are on the bus system and if you hooked into the bus wires it will mess up other modules on the bus ...//did you have a set of twisted wires that you spliced into?..// if you did those are the bus wires


its 2004 and i didnt splice into anywire


all the wires i connected together was open wires


What do you mean by open wires? ...//it sounds like you might have tapped into the clock memory wire or the dash lights ...


is this a base radio or does it have a factory amp ...//also check that e14 orange and tan wire that's the panel lamps

Best Answer

does the aftermarket stereo have a amp? yes it does, im gonna check the wiring again truck is in shop rack and pinion.
