I think that you are on the right track. I have a 2001 2.5 that displayed the same problem. As a last resort, I brought it to the dealer and awaited my fate. They were able to reprogram the cluster....

sub wiring

There were two speakers in my sub. One was wired with yellow(+)/brown(-) and the other was blue(+)/brown(-). So pick yellow or blue as your positive and brown will be your negative.

Not sure what you mean by tapping the 6x9, but a LOC is supposed to sit between your head unit and your amp.
