    You seem to fail at installing things...maybe you should leave it to the pros.

    Where did you feed it through the firewall?If its behind the IC it is a little difficult to get it through.

    I'd use some sort of fish tape or wire to guide it through.

    Well I'm pretty sure that it's a generic set of instructions. There are 10 holes in the firewall you can feed it through.

    Is there an opening up under the steering wheel in the 3Gs? That's where it is in the GDBs...
