    if it would bug you to not have it the way it should be try connecting the blue wire and before you mount the deck turn it on to confirm the amps are on both with the radio and otherwise. But if it isn't a big deal and you don't want to mess with it just connect the red wires on both harnesses and then tap the amp turn on wire in to them as well.

    Thankyou! I tapped the amp turn on wire into the acc. wire and it works beautifully. No pop, bass is clearer, treble was higher but I just turned it down. I don't know if the factory amps are powering the speakers or if it's the radios power, but I don't care. It sounds a lot better than the factory radio and now I can use my Bluetooth to play music. Thanks for the help everyone! Now I just need a cubby where the old CD player was lol[​IMG]
