starting issue

Hey ya'll I put a new head unit in my 2008 Scooby and now it wont start. I jumped the starter and it spins but wont engage the flywheel so I pulled it out and direct wired it to the battery and the bendix kicks in. If I turn the key the starter wont even spin! Any thoughts or suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!

I heard of a security feature keeping it from cranking. If so how do I fix this issue?

what head unit, did you use a wiring harness adapter to have it wire into your stock wiring or did you splice the wires together? or did you use the crappy wiring harness that comes with the head unit

Crutchfield sets you up with everything you need to avoid things like this. Definitely a great site for those new to audio installation.
