Yeah I'm an idiot the little spade connector slid on the outside of the scotch lock. I was just getting frustrated since it was over 100 degrees in the garageJust tap power from one of the main trunk lines......the Kicker power is fused so it's not a big deal.Installing on a 2018 but I can't get power where they say to, I don't have a stud where the picture shows just an empty hole.
Edit: also got no audio output after hooking it up, not sure why yet. Got lt blue and brown/lt blue wires tapped. It's got power for sure but it's definitely not doing anything.
If you checked with a meter you definitely have power to the sub, then you need to recheck your speaker taps......
