Aftermarket radio install problems
I'm starting to really hate Bose.....
Anyways, over the last 2 days I've gone through the trouble of installing a single-din Pioneer head unit I had in my old truck. Pretty cool little unit...has XM/Sirius, iPod connection, bluetooth audio, HD, bluetooth phone, etc.
I used the GMOS-04 to connect to the stock Bose setup. So everything works but not very well. The volume is very low and when I try and crank it up the amp appears to start cutting out like it's too much load. I can select to use or not use the internal amp in the radio and neither selection has made a difference. I've gone through pretty much all the settings on the head unit but nothing seems to help the situation. I found some old threads that mentioned pulling the amp fuse, waiting a few seconds, then putting it back in. Tried that and it still didn't help.
I'm wondering if the GMOS-04 is to blame? It's like it's not feeding the amp the correct signal or bypassing it alltogether or something.
The stock radio worked just fine before this install and during the install I had the airbag, radio, and amp fuses pulled.
