Matt, I think you have one of two problems either it's wired wrong or you have a bad controller. Also recheck your ground and make sure it's a good ground (to metal not plastic).

Like 38 stated....either the controller is shot or it is wired wrong. Did you wire anything to the engine or stereo or just wire it to a hot wire? ZAlso I know that the neon licence plates you have to swap wires to get it to pulse or stay on all the time. Depending on how the wires are hooked depens on how the neon is charhed. Of course that is on a licence plate. If you ran everything from the tubes to the controller correct but only have one hot wire from the battery to the controller I would be apt to believe something is wired wrong. Is it possible to post a pic of the wiring schematic?

Scan the pic and save it to Desktop. Open it in Paint and then File, Save As, and save it as a Jpeg file.

HAHAHA right on man... underbody lights are for hondas, dont ruin a good chevy by tryin to make it look like a cheapass hovercraft.

but if youre really determined, i'm no electrican but i would figure that for them to operate off the revs there would have to be some connection from the controller to your distributor or tach, and to work with the music you'd have to be connected to the radio somehow, unless the controller's got some funky mic pickup.
