Default BTA6100 won't turn on

I have a 2009 Honda Fit with the factory HU and I have used a FAST connector to connect the sub to the HU. I believe the wiring is correct, but when I turn on the ignition, the green indicator light flickers and then turns off. The sub does not work. Any thoughts?

Welcome to the Bazooka Forum. Check your ground connection, make sure that the surface has been properly prepared and securely fastened.

I checked the ground connection and all other connections with a meter. All levels say that it's ok. Are there any other options? Could it be that the subwoofer is defective?

Did you measure your resistance at ground? If your using the FAST-9999 make sure that all connections at the headunit are tight and secure.

What color are the wires you are connecting to at the factory harness?

Switch the blue/white to the orange wire of the factory harness. Keep the red wire connected to the same orange wire.
