You can use the accessory wire. The one that loses 12v positive when the key is turned off and has 12v positive when the key is on. If you can't find that you can use a switch. Find a constant, wire run it to a switch, then to the amp. If doing it that way, you just have to remember to turn the switch off when you shut the car off.

The power goes to your amplifier straight from your battery into your amp so make sure that's good and there's a blue wire behind your radio should say remote you extend that wire to your amp and that tells it when to turn on and of course the rcAs from your radio to amp if it's a stock radio go buy a LOC cause it won't have rcas and to use a LOC well you have to take the speaker wires and hook them up to your rear speakers and then take the rcas from the loc and plug them in the amp but make sure the amp is grounded first
It might be solid blue.All you need is a low ampere power supply that will turn on/off with the deck itself or the car in general.you can run your remote lead to the fusebox and tie it in on the radio fuse and when the car turns on so does the amp-and vice versa. Or just find the power antenna wire on the back of the deck-it does the same thing when the deck is on it sends juice telling the antenna to stay up. hope that helps
check to see if you have power going to the amp. Battery(+) and Negatve(ground). if those are ok, turn the radio on and check to see if the remote wire(it's usually blue) has power. if you have power on the battery wire and the remote wire from the radio, then there is a problem with your amp. check fuses on the amp if any.
If the vehicle has a premium sound package - you need to use the remote wire to turn on the factiry amplifier.
If you want to use the power from the radio for the speakers, you must buy and install a factory amplifier bypass harness.

your amp turn on is hooked to the power antenna wire. Swap the blue wires and youll be good to go. Since the power antenna is not needed, when the radio goes off tuner, the 12V signal is turned off. and your amplifier will also then lose its remote turn on.
Reverse the 2 blue wires.
There is no power from the rca jacks. Option 1; connect the speaker wires directly. Any aftermarket auto manual (Hayes, Clymer) with wiring schematics will let you know what wire is what in the dash. Option 2; RCA jacks output to an amplifier. There is no power coming from the RCA jacks. They have to be used with the amp. If you chose to use the normal speaker wires, be aware that these radios do not like stock speakers or wire. If you take the time and money to replace all of it, the head unit will last much longer. If you choose to use an amplifier, it will burn out fast unless you replace the speakers and wires immediately.
what kind of vehicle do you have? i am going to guess your vehicle has a stock amp that it uses to power your speakers? you will have to hook up the remote wire for the amp to the wire that powers the amp in your vehicle (the stock amp) right now it seems like you have the "power antenna" wire hooked up to the stock amp in your vehicle.
