Hi there, I am Cam. Did you add a new radio as in aftermarket to your Suburban?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
but it was a 2nd aftermarket radio (already had one in there)

Did it require you changing any wiring? A common issue is the orange wires being connected together. One orange at the radio is power and the other is a data line. Connecting them disables the dateline and causes this sort of issue.

It didn't require changing any wiring. Same brand name with stereos. The power was connected during the swap

Ok do things like the windows on opposite sides work, the heater turn on?

Is the check engine light on?

The heater blows. The check engine and battery light are on. Windows work

Ok, at the ignition switch, do both thick red wires have power?
