    alright guys hope you can help me

    i hav a 2010 access cab 4x4 stock steel wheels and tires truck has approx 7000 miles and ive owned it since april maybe

    2 weeks after i bought it i had a very good mecp certified 15 yr veteran alarm guy install a remote starter/remote entry combo, no alarm just a starter. its a compustart and works very well

    then over the next month i installed a new battery XSPower d6500
    pioneer avh4200 dvd head unit, replacement door speakers, multiple amps subwoofers a power inverter under the hood run to a 120vac plug in the dash and one in the beds little boxes and 1/0 wiring to the place the rear seat storage box used to occupy. i understands that the stereo might be to large or not what most users here would want but i really like this and its been a hobby ive had for 20 yrs

    here is a picture of the enclosure that replaced the rear seating area with out the trim panels in place there is literally nothing visible when they are in place

    and some of the wiring leading to the rear of the cab

    this is the deadener installed on the roof and the red box is the tpms receiver

    as you can see i was very careful to not pinch damage or in any way alter any factory wiring during the install

    the install has been complete for over 2 months now and works fine

    about 2 weeks ago the tpms light came on.

    i checked the tire pressure its all good

    so i call the dealership they say its probably the temp change ( we had a cold spell in new york that week ) so i dismiss it for another week

    i call the dealership back and schedule an appointment they have the car for a few hours and call me back saying the computer had given about 4 codes

    one was that the receiver was reading N/A something the techs have never seen
    one was an airbag
    one was a speed sensor and the other they didn't seem to have in memory??

    they tested all 4 wheel sensors they all worked fine and then they seen the remote start and stereo and assume a "wire was crossed" and that i should have the starter checked

    im wondering where to start

    i am going to have the starter checked , remove the headliner and check to see that the receiver is plugged.... in maybe i unplugged it when i put the 2 layers of sound deadener on the roof but i think i would have noticed the light come on when i did that work and i don't remember anything changing in the car when it happened

    id like to have the receiver checked and see if the vibration caused any cracked traces i have a friend who repairs cat scan machines and mri machines during the day and consumer electronics at night and on the weekends

    also ill bee looking at any visible wiring to see if anything is frayed or shorted


    does anyone have any recommendations ?
