Here's my problems, i really need some help to get this fixed...

1-Had the Pioneer N2 DVD Deck installed
2-battery died in car about 3 months later, battery was completely drained, and the ECM/TCM Fuses blew. Car was in Park, radio was on. Keys stuck in ignition
3-SAME AS ABOVE
4-Same as above but my car was in MOTION while this happened.

First 2 times, GM covered this under warrenty. They changed fuses and recharged battery and even replaced the battery. But this third time, they said it COULD my DVD Deck that was blowing the fuses. They didnt cover me. I took my vehicle back to the car audio place, they installed a POWER RELAY, and said it might help, but everything checks out on their install. From when i got this installed and til now, it's been about 9 months.

Does anyone know what this could be, i dont want to get stuck in the middle of the road monthly, i now carry extra fuses just in case

Is this the install, should of the installer put the Power Relay the first time, or is this a vehicle problem???

If anyone can help please let me know

thanks

thats what i thought, what do i need then. a GMOS ??? Theres so many.
any reason why my fuse keeps blowing on me?

If i put the factory deck back in, would this fix my problems?

they will tell you which gmos you need
and yes the factory deck would solve it

ive taken out the after market deck and same problem, fuse blows on contact.

ive yet to put in stock deck... might have to get the installer to do this for me, not sure how, it's a mess back there, with a harness shouldnt it be fairly easy? unplug harness and put stock deck back? i hope the installer didnt hack up all my stock wiring... :rolleyes:

it has to do with the data bus
without the factory radio or the gmos which dummys the system into thinking the factory radios connected it will prob continue to short

prob worked and then fried something maybe a wire in the install is touching a ground which seems likely...

sorry yes the keys are stuck in the ignition.
the battery was disconnected the whole time the aftermarket deck was removed. then a fully charged battery was put in, and the fuse blew instantly.
