    So if you wanted to run aftermarket everything but still have your stock hu hooked up for the databus, how would you get your aftermarket hu to turn on and off with the car. Im relocating my stock radio in a 99 sls... All interior sound is aftermarket but i dont know how to get the hu hooked up like that... Someone plz give me some relocation advice!

    I borrowed the 2 purple wires from the radio amp plug, then decided to take the same route as you. When I reattached the 2 purple wires, almost nothing works, not even headlights. What should I do?

    Can't the ohms are different. Your pioneer is 4ohk and Bose is one .its like apple and oranges. If you want to use the poineer you are going to have to bypass the Bose setup and rewire the system therefore you can't use the factoryHU

    No you can't apples and oranges to bypass the Bose you have to run all new speaker wire to you new HU and depending if you want to use the steering wheel controls your going to need some modules to make that happen
