    New radio installed in tahoem audio problems

    i installed a jensen vm9312 in my 2001 chevy tahoe everything seemed to be working fine but there was no audio. so i hooked up factory radio up and it worked fine. what i found was a second wire harness which seemed to be for the onstar created this problem. i searched around and found that i need an adapter for the onstar. my question is do i really need this? i dont care about onstar at all. these adapters are really expensive, is there a short cut around this?

    i installed a hard drive radio in my sisters tahoe...the second harness has one wire that seems to be the "remote" wire for the factory amp. I just ran the remote wire from the radio and tested each wire( on the second harness) until the sound came on and just tap it.
    i got dat ***** sittin on 22s! SUPERMAN EDITION!

    so is the factory amp not getting power? if so how much power does it need?

    it just needs the remote wire like a aftermarket amp. its powered up through the batter but needs the remote trigger to know when to turn on and off.

    Its usually a pink wire in the 2nd harness.
