    had a Sony xav- 701hd installed and now car won't start.

    So I had the stereo installed and was told they would have to keep it over night, I didn't get it back for two days.

    I told him I wanted the dic working and showed him the thread to retain it. He said no problem.
    Well now he says that the dic was working but when he put everything back in the car it quit.

    Well now my OnStar, my dimmer switch, steering wheel controls don't work and I mean the 1-4 buttons and the voice button for OnStar along with the dic screen of course.

    Also the battery keeps dying. I've only had the car back two days. Now today I had to borrow my gfs vw jetta.

    Any idea what went so wrong? The shop doesn't want to fix it cause the radio Atleast works.

    I'm going down tomorrow threatening to sue.

    I dont think you should threaten anyone. Take the car up there, drop it off and tell them to fix as the way it was when you dropped it off the first time. No telling what it could be man. But they have to fix it.

    I've tried, they said if I want it back to normal I could buy a stereo offline and they would install it. I told them they would have to pay and they said they aren't responsible cause I wanted the dic to continue to work

    But it doesnt work, he said it was no problem and that he could get it done. I would call an attorney and go that route. Or do it the old fashioned way and beat his ass.

    Basically you hired this company to have a product done a certain way. They failed to make it happen. So what they need to do as a business is to make it right, even if it's going to go back as it was.

    And that's what they should do. But they refuse, so the only thing I can think of is go to court.
    I'd like to kick his ass but I've never been to jail and I want to visit lol.

    So now I have a cts with a dead battery sitting in my driveway. I told them I'll be there tomorrow and they will have to fix it. So we will see what happens.
