Did you hook-up the front speaker outputs of the radio to the rear inputs of the 22 pin connector? The rear speaker outputs of the radio are not used. Note that the factory amplifier only has a two channel input. When connecting an aftermarket stereo, only two channels can be used. Therefore, the fading capability of the aftermarket stereo will not be able to be used.

I have the Pac you have, but I dont have the BA system and im also running pre-amp outputs instead of the speaker wiring.

Re: Audio Guys HELP

Hard to tell without being there to see it myself, and just going on what you say. I would go back and triple check all the wiring, connectors and all. Make sure the remote wire on the Pac is connected to the radio's amp trigger wire, and go back and see if the amp is actually turning on. If your amp is turning on then test the speaker wires, working back to the head unit.

Re: Audio Guys HELP

One thing thats handy is a volt meter, then you can check to see if the wires live or dead. Then trace it back.

Re: Audio Guys HELP

Awesome, good luck. Im in the middle of doing my system too, and when i run into problems I know how frustrating it can be. But like I said, if you have a volt meter to be able to test the wiring then your not guessing as much.
