Hey there. If the system is an aftermarket type, then you would need to have the entire system removed or the system replaced with a new system. These systems all hook up a little different and only after looking at the install can a mechanic remove it and put the wiring back to original connections so you can start and run the vehicle. You may consider consulting with the shop were you originally got the part or the manufacturer so that they can assist you further with this.
