    Has your main fuse gone? The power wire hasn't come out of the joiner in the dash behind the stereo has it?

    fuse box buddy

    let me get this straight looking at the pics

    the previous owner bullet connected the wiring to the two power and speaker plugs coming out the dash(black ones)

    your previous stereo had a wiring harness from back of headunit that then splits into two black plus-speaker and power and this was just connected to the two power/speaker black plugs and it worked?

    in the pic the iso block looks like it comes out of the stereo headunit and splits as before into the plugs but also you have other wires also like bullet connections on the same harness.


    when you connect it are you just connecting the iso plugs form headunit to the two black plugs coming out the dash only?obviously the right way round
