well i double checked all my connections i think maybe one of the clips weren't closed enough not sure. john at j&s had me do this test where u take out the clear wire and put a new wire in and tap a 12v source to simulate knock, and i saw response.Put the clear wire in, then had a volunteer knock for me and eureka!
