Quick question on the PAC. Did you just plug in the harness or did you use the power and hot wires as well. I've read on other GM forums that wires don't need to be used and others that say they should be used.

I plan on installing mine on my lunch. All of my wires are run and tt only take me a couple minutes to pull the dash apart and I am doing the add a circuit for the remote.
Awesome. Thanks.
Actually i only used the remote blue wire off PAC harness... power and ground was taped off... not sure what would be outcome in terms of PAC operation but my AMP works fine.

Just avoided them initially for testing... but left them as it is once everything worked fine.

haha...this is what I keep seeing. So the separate hot and ground coming out of the PAC unit itself aren't needed for operation.
Ya I was going to use the ground at least but didn't want to run an extra power wire if it wasn't needed. I also noticed the add-a-circuit I got was for a standard fuse style and not the mini like we have. derp >.<
