    So, what was the simple issue?

    Might help somebody else out that is looking to do their own install soon.

    Wink, wink . . .

    wolfman - my guess is he had an amp remote not getting voltage. This sometimes trips up people doing full blown installs. Everything needs to be switched. (just a guess).

    cigars - glad you got it all worked out :>

    You are exactly right Brian. The Rockford amp was not getting voltage and we simply took the switched source wire from the ZLD connector to the battery and then daisy changed the rem wire from the kicker to the Rockford.

    Sorry, should have posted what it was.

    I have to clean up the wiring still and then I am getting a 2nd battery, perko switch and distribution block.

    Just to clarify on wiring of the ZLD before going hot. According to the document it states to a connect as:
    B- (Connect to battery ground)
    R (Connect to battery positive)
    B+ (Connect to Switched turn on from source)

    This seems to leave room for different interuption as the B+ would be connected to a Remote turn (typically Blue wire) and R to a constant hot wire.

    I assume the ZLD is wired similar to an amp and the B+ is to a fused a battery postive or Stereo On switch and the R to Remote Turn signal?

    mcdye -

    Lets use pictures... so we are clear. As shown below in the right hand side... This is how you'd run your wiring.

    Note: when running these cables, do NOT attach power or grounds in the helm area, but run the cables back over to the same connection points of the source unit power and ground. Often times this is a distro block or battery.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks Brian,

    That is what I thought it should be. I will e-mail you showing why the confusion on my side.
