Re: amp won't power up

If you are saying that you wired the remote to the RCA from the amp outputs then that won't work. A good way to make the amp just turn on is to have NO speakers attached, no input RCA's attached. Just have ground to ground and B+ to 12 (battery). If your then temporarily jump 12volt from the B+ terminal to the remote terminal then the amp should turn on and stay on as long as the jumper is in place. In a normal hookup, the remote 12volts is supplied from the radio (head unit).

I am installing a stereo in my car and the previous owner cut the wires and the labels are gone. The stereo I am installing has 4 wires other than the speaker wires. They are: +Battery(Yellow), ACC (Red),...

Here you go.
Radio Side -- Car side
12v (Yellow) -- Orange/Black
ACC (Red) -- White/Black
Ground (Black) -- Black or chassis ground(bare Metal)
Pwr Ant (Blue/white) -- Pink
If your not adding and amplifier than your system remote should be used for power antenna which is the pink.
Hopefully this helps
