I have installed a new Kenwood Navi HU. I have no sound and I am sure it is because the factory amp is not powering on. I tapped the light blue wire in the harness with the PWR ANT lead from the HU. I do not hear any pop or hissing from the speakers to indicate that there is power. I am using a Metra harness, although there are no hookups for remote power on the aftermarket harness. Everything else is working fine. I do have a PAC SWI JACK hooked up to the power and ground. I have not tapped into the steering control yet, but I don't see how this could make a difference.

If anyone has any ideas about things that I can check, please let me know.

If you have the factory amp. You need to tap 12v switch to the amp power wire on the amp harness. Radio won't turn on without power to the amp.

And you have to make sure you use the correct lead from the HU. If you use the power antenna lead the amp will only turn on when you're in the radio mode.
