In the trunk up next to wheel wells. Start peeling carpet out of the trunk walls and you will find it. The rear speaker wires run right to it.
Please beware that only the 10 speaker systems have a factory amp. The stock 6 speaker systems run straight off of the factory radio. You can buy a factory amp bypass harness for this model at any good car audio shop.

My Advise is to REWIRE all SPEAKERS SEPERATLY & INDEPENDENT From Factory Wiring, as it is Safer to do this than to INCORPERATE Your Sterio Wiring into the Original Wiring, Some Vehicles Use Spicific Wiring to OTHER Components. I'm Sure this is NOT the Answer you WANT But I have Installed more than I can Countof Stereo Systems into Cars/Trucks ,Tractor trailers and Inicialy I Only Ran Into PROBLEMS When Incorperating into Factory Wiring Thus I Refined MY METHOD By Simply Wiring all EXEPT the BATTERY & IGNITION < Key ON Wires. ONE SLIP In INCORPERATING INTO FACTORY WIRING Can CAUSE SERIOUS PROBLEMS/DAMAGE the ELECTRICAL SYSTEM. I Realize that in MANY Vehicles this CAN and HAS Been DONE But at the Same time When you ISOLATE the NEW STEREO WIRING You KNOW EXACTLY what you Have. As Far as Color Codes they CAN and DO VARY from Year to Year and Makes Also. What I am Recomending May be SLIGHTLY more Expensive and Require Some Time BUT the End Result will be Well Worth it. Thank you for your time !
u would need the factory service manual . find suspected turn n wire and a test light to it while turning on head unit will light up when the right wire is found . ideally a multimeter is better to check this wire for 12 volt or 500 ma of power , just be carefull

It sounds like you have a couple wires touching that are not supposed to be. I recommend tracing all the wire from your radio all the way back to the factory amp. If the factory amp is getting power while the vehicle is off then this is what is causing the white noise. I hope this helps, don't hesitate to ask any additional questions and please don't forget to rate me.
