Did you use a harness adapter kit with the installation?

Best Answer

I think so I bought a harness from car toys but it go from the factory harness to the new stereo

Okay, What may be the problem is if you have a factory installed amplifier, the harness you have may not be the correct one to trigger the power needed to the amp. Do you know if you have a factory installed amp, or is it a premium sound system from the factory? Factory installed sub? Anything like that?

I don't know I just got the car and the stereo 2 days ago

The harness you got might not match up directly to the factory wiring. Did you disconnect the battery from the car when you did the work? Maybe you blew a fuse on the amp if the radio is on?

I'll have to check cuz I didn't even open the hood

Alright all done everything is good to go had to replace a fuse and I also had one wire that wasn't connected to anything thanks slot
