Aftermarket stereo installed, no sound...!
I'm putting this out to the community hoping to get some helpful advice here.
I carefully installed a new Clarion HU in my 2004 E83. It was very straightforward electrical work since I got the Metra wire harness.
I got everything wired up nicely aaaaannnnddd.... the unit turns on, all modes work (I even connected it to my phone using the bluetooth), but I don't get any sound.
Based on what I've read online, it seems that it's not pinging the amp even though I wired both the "remote antenna" and "system remote" wires correctly.
I'm totally exasperated by this. I read in another post that it's possible to throw a code when installing an aftermarket stereo, and if you clear the fault code, the computer will activate the amp. Is there any truth to this?
What am I missing here? I've wired car stereos in my other cars before and this went exactly as smoothly until the whole no-sound part.
Many thanks for advice about my situation!
