    made loud screaming noise through speakers then went blank. It sounded like it got killed. Unresponsive two days later.

    This is entune with nav and apps non jbl.

    Door speaker Amp install gone wrong.

    Have power to back of radio (only one wire has power.) Have power to amp (only one wire has power.)

    Factory amp back in place.

    Checked both fuses “radio” and “amp”.

    Using a tacotunes amp harness I used the yellow wire to power the amp and the blue wire as a remote, speaker wires to and from amp wired as normal and amp grounded to frame.

    The amp was just a tiny bit bigger than the factory amp 30w x4 it lasted about 10 minutes before assumingly blowing my head unit.

    I’ve tried leaving the negative off the battery for over 10 minutes checked the two fuses what else can I try?

    Have you tried taking it to a reputable shop near by that’s not a dealer? I know most places charge a flat rate for diagnostic fees

    Not yet, if no one has any ideas on what to check ill take it to tacotunes it’s about a 3 hour trip for me but they know Toyota’s so I’m sure they will be able to figure it out.

    Put it all back to factory and take it into your dealership with a confused look on your face. If its the head unit thats the only way you will get a new one under warranty.

    Problem is if they dig in it will be obvious I fucked it up.. I guess I’ll try that first?

    If you didn't cut any wires you should be good i would think.

    Its worth a try. If it does not work you get to buy a new head unit. Your system will sound much better with a new head unit anyway. Here is a video that shows the difference https://www.tundras.com/threads/the-long-awaited-jbl-premium-system-sucks-video.20948/

    +1, not sure how they would figure out that you caused the problem. You must have crossed a wire on the amp install. There is a thread on here about using resistors between the HU and LOC or amp. I inquired if anyone has actually blown a HU with aftermarket amp and no replies to that ?. Maybe you are a first.

    I Wouldn’t be surprised if I were the first.. I literally have the worst luck in the world. I was going to just buy the tacotunes kit, but was 200$ short so thought by just using the amp I had I could still get the sound I was looking for and still be able to send my son money for college. Looks like I’ll just be without a radio for awhile.. oh well.. at my age you would think I’m out of lessons to learn but maybe I just needed a refresher course... thanks for the help guys.

    Also not sure the unit is blown, it may be a different problem I will find out tonight. I’m going to do a quick check with an aftermarket head unit if it powers up and plays it’s definitely a blown head unit. If that’s the case, then I think they will just replace it and not dig any further. If that’s not the problem then they will dig and find the obvious tampering of amp wiring and Dynamat doors.

    Also, the plastic in these trucks specifically the plastic clips are a joke.. broke two so far.. guess the Tundra is a delicate flower that needs to be finessed.

    Hey Adam, he’s in Houston. You or anybody you know have their stock unit still sitting around? I already got rid of mine. I told him to check the Houston Tundras Facebook group.
