Question intalling a deck

if it's anything like my dodge, all you need is a wire harness and to turn the amp on you just have to figure out which wire is the power control on the stock harness and hook up the p-controll from the new HU. should be right on the harness that you buy.

should be under the dash somewhere, not 100% sure where? probably behind the glove box area. Are you planing on using the stock amp? You should even need to locate the amp if your just planing to run everything through it. everything should run right through the harness

yeah, you should have to do anything with the stock amp then. all you have to do it hook up your constant power, power, ground and speakers through the harness. Everything should be labeled on the wires. the only thing that may not be labeled on the aftermarket harness is the p-control wire for the amp. the harness that you bought should have come with a little sheet of paper, on that somewhere it should say something about the p-cantrol for the amp, but it might not say what color the wire is that your looking for. Best thing to do is hook everything else up, make sure the HU is working. then just try hooking the p-control up to the extra wires one at a time until you get sound. it won't hurt anything.

Are you 100% sure that there is a stock amp? before you go looking for the p-control wire, test to see if you have music.

with my dodge, the deck runs the stock tweeters, and the amp runs the rest.

do u mean RCA's? there won't be RCA's just positive and neg wires for each speaker. As if you are running straight to speakers. Just use those wires, thats what sends the signal to the amp. The amp won't have any RCA plug-ins.

it's a very simple job if your not looking for RCA plug-ins that aren't there
