  1. Dale, technically you could connect your 2005 Chevrolet Equinox amplifier turn on wire to the radio switched 12v+ wire (orange wire in the steering column at the ignition switch harness). That way your amplifier is on whenever your 2005 Chevrolet Equinox is on and off whenever your 2005 Chevrolet Equinox is off. Just make sure to run an in-line fuse holder with a 1-amp fuse on the amplifier turn on wire. Hope this helps. Good luck with your amplifier install.

  2. Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan

    I see a brown wire and a brownish grey wire…not too sure about tan and have had no luck getting the left front speaker to work…any help would be appreciated.

  3. I tried to hook up dvd in my 2005 chevrolet equinox and now there is no power to the car at all it blew something and I cant find out what it is. all fuses are good. could it be one of those little black boxes in the fuses box?

  4. Theodore, double check ALL your fuses using an Automotive Fuse Tester because certain vehicles may have a wire tied into another circuit not labeled as car radio. You may have additional fuse boxes by the driver side of the dash, passenger side of the dash, driver kick panel, passenger kick panel, under the steering column or under the hood. If all of your fuses are good, your 2005 Chevrolet Equinox factory amplifier may be faulty. We suggest you take your car to an experienced audio installer and have them troubleshoot your problem. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2005 Chevrolet Equinox radio troubleshooting.
