well i tried almost every option.. i ended up sending a wire through by itself to the radio.. seems to work for now. i still have a mystery with the amplifier, that was my next mission. i cant seem to find a fuse thats powerful enough, i tried the sunroof and nope. So i saw a thread somewhere about wiring the remote wire and signal (idk what signal means) off the 6x9s in the back and ran the amp of the 6x9 signal.. does anyone know if this will work and if theres another name for this "signal" the guy was talking about. It seems like to me you would run a remote wire to the 6x9 and some other wire and then splice another wire for the amp?. or does anyone know of an easier way. id rather not get into wires a fuse would be nice and maybe a complete walk thru ive got everything hooked up but it could just be something simple i missed.
