Issues with MS8 after install using technic harness

On my F32 premium hifi, I had the factory amp removed and replaced with a Technic wiring harness and the following
1. Jbl ms8
2. JL audio hd 600/4 and 750/1

My installer told me that the relay that came along with the harness is weak and couldnt turn on the amps so it was replaced.

Everything is working well except for 2 things.
1. The ms8 doesnt shut down when stereo is turned off.. it takes 3 min before it powers down
2. Bluetooth phone is not working properly. The person on the other line could hear me which probably means the mic is working. However, I couldn't hear the other person's voice. It doesnt come out of the stereo system

Any ideas?

1. Not a problem.
2. Known issue with MS-8. There is a firmware "update" out there that lets you turn off processing (which causes BT echo) by pushing the mute button on the remote.
