There should be a red, black, yellow and blue wire separate from your speaker wires the red should only be hot when the key is turned on the yellow should be hot all the time the black is your ground and the blue wire is your remote wire only hot when the deck is turned on. if it is a factory deck it mite not have a remote wire

I am hooking up a remote start on a 99 Chevy Astro & can not find a tach wire.

Hey I'm not an expert at remote starts I've only hooked up one in my life I have two of them one in my Durango & one in my Dakota Dakota was installed by best buy & Durango was installed by pc richards I'm not positive but I think tach wires are the same color on all remote starts and mine are purple the tach wire on the Durango is hooked to the #3 fuel injector wires & the Dakota wire is hooked to the coil but the tach wire is purple look back at installation directions you might have a defective remote start unit remember I said I'm not an expert I'm just going. By what I have I really hope this helped you oh by the way the van has an automatic tranny right? Good luck

What's the Motorola box under my back seat Chevy trailblazer 02 also I'm hooking a amp to battery where do I connect the amp turn on wire I guess it be remote wire

The motorolla box may be remnants of an old disk changer for the stereo. With an amp your power wire goes into the positive wire that goes to your battery, your ground wire will be connected to some bare metal close to wherever you decide to install the amp, and the blue remote wire will be connected to the remote wire that in on the wiring harness of your aftermarket radio ( I'm sure your not installing an amp with your stock radio). Good luck I hope this helps

I need to know what is the color of the remote wire on a 07 doge ram slt quad cab 4x2

The amp remote is actually run by the computer bus line. This is a twisted pair of wires that allow computers to talk back and forth.. therefore it does not have a remote wire. Best bet is to run amp on a switch or a keyed power wire for remote turn on. Also if u plan on changing stereo u will need to buy a interface kit or truck may not even run

I don't know how to remove that amplifier of my 2001 Chevy Malibu. Can anyone help?

From what i see in your video is your head unit not your amplifier for your stereo which is under your drivers seat, but for taking your head unit out just lightly pry on your face plate and it should pop off dont be afraid to give it a little umph cause its kind of hard and when it finally releases it should be a big pop and maybe some squeaking, remove that then pull on your head unit and unplug it from the back replace with your new aftermarket head unit then you should have a wire thats free like a navy blue color thats your remote wire for your amplifier which turns your amp on when the radio is on you shouldn\'t have to cut this wire it should be free but your gonna need a conversion plug most likely and for your RCA cables they just plug in in the back of the head unit. This is if you are putting a sub woofer in what i am telling you if you are not putting a sub in the dont worry about the RCA cables and your remote wire good luck man.

Hooked up my amp it has power but power light won't come on won't power up front speakers work and have sound but it doesn't move to back

Make sure the remote wire is hooked up. You can run a small wire from the power terminal to the remote terminal. If it powers up, then you have a remote wire problem. You can run a remote wire from the blue power antennae wire of the deck.

How do I hook up a jbl 12 inch subwoffer to a car head unit

The head unit should have a RCA Sub Out. The RCA wire goes to the Sub Amplifier, along with power, ground, and a blue remote wire from the Head Unit. Next, the Sub Amp is wired to the Subwoofer with speaker wire. Without an amplifier your sub won't make any noticeable sound.

Oem remote start doesent work on my 2000 f150 checked the fuses both r ok and also checked the hood switch it seems ok where do i go from there

The hood switch should have produced an error of some kind ( at the very least flash the parking lamps ).
The hood switch is to ground, if you meter ( ohms or continuity ) from ground to the wire leaving the hood switch one direction you should have an open the other you should have < 100 ohms ).
I suspect the hood switch is OK, if the hood is open the OEM remote start would honk the horn 2 times.

If when you press the remote start, the ignition turns on then off ( cluster powers up ) check the Violet & Violet w/ red stripe wires to make sure they are still connected. and the A-4 & B-2 wires ( on the RMST unit ) that they have + VDC.
Did the unit operate correctly at one time ?
- Just verifying it is not a programming issue with it.

How do I hook up speakers and an amp

Big red cable goes from + on amp to battery. Then the black - wire goes from amp to body ground (unpainted ground) The Blue remote wire goes from amp remote to the remote wire on back of the cd deck.
Then, the rca jacks go from Rear Audio Out Jacks on CD deck to the Audio IN Jacks on amp.

Speakers have Red + and Black - which match up to screws on amp.

P.S. Make sure fuse is out while hooking everything up.

06 cobalt stock system hook up

I cant really assist in this matter but I can let you know that I have a system in my 2006 Chevy Cobalt and that I have an aftermarket cd player installed. I had to pay $130 for a special adapter for it to be wired into the system because GM's newest idea of installing the stereo and airbags on the same wire scheme, is kind of a dumb idea.
