    I just tested with the Impala bypass, rewired and it corrected my issue. I have tunes again. I'm next going to take the factory amp apart to look for cold solder joints, etc before looking for a replacement factory amp as I want to keep the system stock.

    Any one have any experience fixing an factory amp?

    I had similar issues and bought the amp bypass designed for our trucks (eBay for like $50), plug and play so no rewiring required.

    Also keep in mind that once you do this, you will need to bypass the rear audio controls (if you have them). Super easy though.

    I pulled the amp out, Model 15762536. Has anyone taken one of these apart and found anything at fault? I'm hoping to find something obvious, like a bad solder joint. My local bone yard might have one, $30 so that's my back up plan. Its a roam around looking for one kind of junk yard so you don't know for sure until you see one.

    I bypassed the one in my 02 burb recently, and not sorry I did. the stock sub was blown and sounded terrible and the rest was not great either, seems like it was a metra harness for a Saturn or something ( old school thread stuff) went to and aftermarket deck and it gets better cleaner power direct than bothering to try and fix the stock amp. also made it simple to add an aftermarket sub. still need to swap the door speakers, but still much better than it was.

    I wanted to keep mine stock too but once you replace it with a aftermarket unit you will have many more options to improve the sound quality and add amps to improve the power output as well.

    Every stock sub is blown. They were never designed to last the life of the truck.
