Re: CONNECTING AN AMP
Amp is powered by a main power wire to the battery, ground to metal chassis, and a remote wire (usually blue) from the D player to the remote in on amp. RCA's from CD player to amp as well. Not sure what you mean by "no amp wire on harness". Let me know so I can give you a more definitive answer.

The amplifier is in the passenger side rear quarter panel.

Plug the old head unit in again and test the wires when the radion is on. There is obviously an amp turn wire in that harness that needs to be powered up. It will be a wire other than the yellow (12 volt constant) and red (12 volt accessory). Also, the green parking wire can be used to watch movie when the vehicle is in motion. It needs to see ground in order to work but, connecting to constant ground won't do. You need to put a two wire toggle switch on it and the black ground wire and run the switch somewhere that easily accessible when driving.
The video feature is supposed to be available only when the car is not moving. So there is a wire coming out from the stereo that is supposed to go to the parking brake switch, that's the same switch that will make turn on the brake light in you dashboard. If you cannot find that wire in your car's harness. Then you could easily fix it (under your own responsibility), by connecting that wire from the stereo to ground. Than will make the DVD feature to work on any condition. That's how I made it work, I think it's okay as long as you connect an auxiliary screen for the kids to watch on the rear seat. Miguel
You should plug your RCA's from your amp to your radio output. Then you should take the blue power wire for the amp and splice it to the blue wire on your cd players wiring harness. The blue wire is for an automatic antenna or for 12v current for a amp.
There is 2 harness the one that you are usin wich is the main harness in the second one that normally is conected to power up tha casette deck,there it should be a pink wire conect this wire together with the red one located on the main harness,if you have any problem call me 830 488 2078 im in texas ask for Tony
It should have a blue wire from the harness on the back of the player for turning on the amp, it may also be labeled "antenna" or "power antenna" or "P con". That is the one to run to the remote turn on of the amp.
The wires you posted need not go anywhere not unless you have a device that will attached to them. antenna power - connects to the motor of a telescopic external car antenna. When you power on the unit, it will automatically raise the antenna; amp power - connects to an add-on/external amplifier. This switches/triggers the amp to gon when the Jensen is powered up; reverse - attaches to the reverse light of your vehicle. This will tell your unit that you are reversing and will activate a rear view camera.
As earlier stated, if you do not have any use of these devices then there is no need to connect the above described wires to anything. Connecting them to the ground would have a bad effect on the internal circuitry of the Jensen since they are meant to supply power and therefore are connected to the B+supply when the Jensen is powered except for the reverse which would sense a 12V from the vehicle's transmission. Connecting them to the constant B+12 would have no ill effect except that your Jensen would always be on.
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
