GreySkorpion Got it, thanks! For some reason I hooked my blue amp wire to the pcm, I have no idea why, what a dumb ass I am.....

iminhell I'm saying you may have mixed up the og/bk and bk/og.
I can see that disabling CC.

GreySkorpion I have a blaupunkt if it matters. So you are saying to hook the orange/black to my current yellow connection instead? I know I didn't hook up the orange/black because my diagram says it illumination and the Pioneer doesn't call for it to be hooked up.

iminhell Just checking the wire diagram.
Don't know why I was thinking yellow ...

Notice the Orange/Black and Black Orange?

GreySkorpion So look for the other wire to use? I am at work and will take it apart about 8:00 am tomorrow morning. I can't recall what other car wires weren't used, I know the illumination one was not, it does seem like there was another wire.

iminhell Wrong yellow wire from the car side ...

Strangest electrical problem ever???

So I hooked up my Pioneer head unit by hard wiring it. I hooked up the ground, constant and acc wires according to my Haynes manual. The only wire on the radio harness not used was the amp/power antenna relay wire and the only wire from the cars harness not used was the illumination wire. Now my cruise control only will work when the stereo is off. What did I do wrong?
