WELCOME your in the right place

Ok here come the questions.

What stereo was in the car prior to installing your headunit.
Is it the bose? Post a pic if you can

What headunit are you putting in?

Did you get the wire adaptor?

in the back of the head unit on the wiring adaptor do you have the power wire connected. is it grounded. How do you have the remote wire hooked up. Is it when you have the acc. on or the car started?

what model pioneer?

yup,
just wiring to the adapter harness doesn;t work.
You have to reroute the power somewhere else....no need to go rippin the trunk

I ffel your frustration, just come back to it in a day or two, its an easy fix.
