I don't understand the 'cross wiring' aspect. If you wire in an aftermarket stereo and it plays, you could have a faulty radio producing no audio outputs to the amplifier. A faulty amplifier would also be suspect, but if changing a stereo causes audio, it confirms the amplifier is functional. The amplifier is powered by the cigar lighter fuse in the i/p fuse block, that is worth a check as well.

No when we coss wire it is is not threw the amp so with the bose system u have to run threw the amp or it sounds like a cracker box oh it sounds offeal so we cross wire on the out put side of the amp where all the speakers run to the pug in harness.
I need to see if anyone else has had this problem and what did they do to fix it
