Hi,

I am trying to install an Alpine Ilx-007 as replacement to the Rocksgate stereo system. I wired the radio with a metra 70-7551 harness, and while the radio works, I get a loud popping sound when turning off the car.

I guess it is a matter with grounding. I tried 2 ways:
- grounding the stereo and metra to the metal bracket that the stereo bolt on
- soldering the stereo and metra ground together, since the metra harness should connect to the vehicle ground connector

Either way, I get the popping sound.

So my question is: on an xterra 2006, what can I ground to?

Thanks

hmmm, your grounds sound good. Could it be an issue with the stereo? It has been a long long time since I have had to install a stereo but the grounds sound solid to me
