Okay I need some help! I have a 2007 Dodge nitro slt with the infinity audio system. I am attempting to put a new aftermarket stereo in it. I want to keep the factory amp. (I have installed many previously) I am getting power to the unit but the amp doesn't seem to be turning on. Tried different methods and nothing works. I have the correct harness (not the cheap one) canbus one or something like that. Everything is wired correctly but I'm still getting nothing. Any ideas?

Welcome Greg!

Sounds like you know what you are doing. I have no experience myself and if you have power why does it not work? Only suggestion I have is to contact your aftermarket stereo manufacture or their "Online" HELP Website. You surely are not the first to run into this issue. Should be something simple, right? Good Luck. I will see if I can find anything myself and will post it, if I do.

Greg here are some LINKS that might have your answer if you have not already seen them?

Video for those who installed their head unit correctly, but got no sound / factory amplifiers not turning on. When I installed my head unit I could not find the correct answer on line. One guy here on youtube was close, but he bypassed the amp relay and powered the amp off the accessory circuit directly from the head unit. You can do it that way, but you run the risk of blowing fuses, there is a reason why the amps are on their own circuit (this ia a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan and each speaker has it's own amp/crossover network). My method moves the relay control to the new head unit & keeps the amps powered by their original circuit.
This is my first video, I hope you find it helpful.
