update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I'm last night I get all the wires hooked up and the axxess box breaks while I'm trying to adjust the radio volume :bang::bang::bang: the place where I purchased it agreed to send me a replacement in two days so I'm happy about that but while I was installing, I ran into a problem with the ausio staying on while the car was running. If I turned the key once, the radio played..when the I started the car the audio went out ....any suggestions

Not to sounds like a jerk, but all of this highlights why the Rosen is such a nice radio, especially when installing it yourself - just disconnect old and connect new. Done. :)

But seriously, I hope that you get it resolved soon. I'm assuming that the radio physically fit OK?

Well I returned the Maestro as I was not spending another 120-130 on a module and I bought the PAC works great very easy and straight forward installation.

Alright guys....I'm kind of embarrassed but I'll admit it. I'm one of those people who got overly excited with install a new stereo. I just had gotten a sound system including a 2 6.5" boss door speakers, 1,200W boss amp, 2 Memphis 12's, and some 8 dollar tweeters just for some added treble. Well back to the topic at hand, I thought the stereo install would be cake and the easiest install of all. So before I cut the factory harness out, I used the correct harness to adapt onto my factory plug but got no power so I said screw it and w/ out hesitating I thought I'd try to just cut and hardware thinking it'd be simple....come to find out that'd I'd really pay for it 2 weeks after trying to do that. I now have wires sticking out from my radio dash and have not had a stereo for that time now because I WANT TO DO IT MYSELF, no matter all the extra stuff I have to do. 8 don't care for the chimes and what not. So if somebody could tell me what I can do to make my install a little easier id appreciate it immensely. Let me remind that I have an 01 impala, no onstar, and the factory harness is cut out so I must hardware. "Must" isn't the right word. But FOR NOW I want to just hardwire it

Also, I want to add a question to my previous comment. Would it work if I bought a reverse harness and then bought the data bus interface and harness for my stereo? So pretty much reverse the butting of the harness that I so stupidly (I'm being nice to myself) did, and then doing it the right way
