2008 Jeep WK

Post by grinmaul » Fri Dec 07, 2018 4:34 pm

I am installing an RR with CH1 into my jeep, i am seeing conflicting advice on what to do if i have a factory amp. on the installation videos it is saying to hook up white to green if i do have a factory amp, and green to green without, but the manual that comes with the CH1 says the opposite.

so my question, i have the factory Boston acoustic amp and speakers. what do i do with the green and white connectors...

With a factory amplifier, you would have the connectors green to green, and white to white.

another question, i have got all the wires hooked up, 2 things are not working right so far. 1. when you turn key off but don't open doors the factory radio stays on until you exit. i rally like that. the RR shuts down radio as soon as key is off.


the other is not related to your product, kenwood dmx905s only outputs 7 volts to backup cam?

check in the EVIC (the display in your instrument cluster) and there should be a setting for Retained Power. You can set it for different times to keep the radio on, check to see if somehow that got set to 0 (which would turn the radio off when the key is turned off).
