Aftermarket radio no sound Help Please

Hello,I am looking for anyone who can help me solve this problem i am having installing a radio into my wifes 2006 Jeep liberty. I have tested the radio out of the liberty*and it works great so i know the radio is fine. Everything worked fine when i removed the old radio and even put it back in to test and everything works. Now i bought the Metra install kit 70-6503 so i would not have to hackup the factory wires. So onto the problem. After i hookup the wiring adapter the radio turns on but was no sound? So after a bit of testing i plugged*a cable from my headphones on my phone to the RCA that normally goes to the back of the radio and i did get sound out, but was not very loud? So i thought*maybe the output level was to low from the new radio so i jumped on Amazon and ordered a adjustable 4channel high level-to low level adapter. I installed it cranked all the adjustments to the max and STILL very low volume levels? So im trying to figure out what's going on and once again i went back and hooked it back up to my phone and the sound level was still low and i wondered if the factory amp was getting powered? so i grabbed the key and turned off the car and pulled out the keys and there was no change! it kept playing at the same volume? SO i am here asking you all does that mean that the factory AMP is not getting power? Would i still be able to get sound out of the speakers without power to the Amp? And if so how do i get power to the Amp(s) ? Do i have to splice into the factory 22 pin pin plug? and if so what color or pin number do i use? Please help me internet world. Thank you for reading and i await replies.
Also while searching and reading for hours today i did read about a 1 wire relay trick that you apply 12volts to cause the factory radio amp to turn on but nothing i found told where this magic place is? Do any of you know where this is?
Thank you

Could be a defective Metra adapter.
