Picture of how to bypass the amp in a 2004 impala
If you are like me and hate being told that something is impossible to do and you own a 2004 Chevy Impala nad your stock Radio keeps shutting itself off at random when you are driving and turns on after you shut your car off then this instructable is for you .

This instructable is for people who own a 04 impala with a BOSE FACTORY AMP , since Chevy used several different vendors for the amps im not sure if the wiring will be the same.

The first thing you need to do is open the trunk of your car then DISCONNECT the battery from your car (if you don't and get zapped do not blame me)

crawl into your trunk, pull the back seats down if you need to have more room to work with and get your wire cutter/strippers and wire nuts ready
