    theres no tags on any of the wires on the back of the deck except for the antenna, but i have already connected it to the live side of the lighter (since it is 12v) and it works fine (as it turns off and on with the ignition), but for all you people that dont actually know which wire it is i dont recommend that you do that, as you could hook it up to the wrong side of the lighter and it will not work unless the lighter is pushed in.....

The one with the rem tag at the back should possibly be it. Although I still advise you to consult the box or manufacturers wiring guide.

I won't recommend attaching it to the live side of a cigarette lighter because some products might get burned doing so, but some do work with this method...

    You can actually try to tap in to the wiring of the cigarette lighter slot, so you don't have to remove it at all. It's easy to get to it from either your fuse box, or at the panel. I advise you to at least put a fuse from the cigarette line connected to you rem port to protect it from over powering. You can even put a jumper from your Head unit's power source to your rem if your up to the task. Just don't forget to add protection fuse to save you a lot of headache in the long run...

Wiring JVC car deck


Do you have factory infinity sound. If you do you need a another harness or bypass that infinity system. Also What year is the truck. I know for a dodge ram after 02 is a canbus system. When wiring in the harness leave the blue remote wire alone do not connect from radio harness to the harness that connects to factory harness. Unless you are running to an aftermarket amp. There is a brown wire also that you should not connect leave the remote blue and brown wires alone. this is atleast on a 02 dodge 1500 or newer and 03 or newer 2500+. not sure if this will solve your issue but it fixed my buddies.

Another conundrum


To check for yourself, get an Ohmmeter and see if the outers of the amplifiers RCAs are connected to the ground or each other. If so then it cannot take speaker signals directly.
I suspect the 'High Level' the manual speaks of are the 4volt auxilliary audio signals that can be found on some newer head units, not speaker signals.
Speaker level signals from a bridge amp CAN be used on grounded RCA inputs if the signal is first passed through a simple decoupler and attenuator.
Diagram to explain....

The blue remote wire where do i connect it and how? Is the head unit the deck car deck i mean? No power light


The blue remote wire is a wire that you connect to an amp which will turn the amp on when the radio turns on. If you don't have an amp don't connect it, just tape it up

I can't seem to find the remote wire for the RCA leads that go to my amp


  • The remote wire connects the head unit/deck and runs to the amp. You have to supply this wire. It does not have to be to thick of gauge like the power and ground wire.
  • The RCA connects from the deck to the amp if your deck has them. All the newer decks do but not all decks have a spot for RCA cables.
  • The two are different. The RCA cables are what sends the audio signal to the amp for the speakers. The remote wire sends a power feed signal that turns the amp on when the deck is turned on. It's basically the on/off "switch" to the amp activated by the deck being turned on/off.

make sure you used the blue with white stripe wire from your head unit for the remote wire for your amp. The solid blue wire is for triggering on the power antenna and does not supply voltage in CD or AUX

Wiring


tblackwood ...if you have connected your remote turn on for your amp to the remote turn on on the deck(this is also the power aerial connection) ..on some decks this has power only when the radio is operating. as soon as you insert cd it shuts down the power to this supply(i dont know why some did this.it was a bad move ) ..you may have to find another power supply to turn the amp on (accessories supply on the ignition..)

Auto amplifier installation


Does the new deck have a blue wire for remote and a blue/white wire also? The blue one is for a power antenna and shuts of when playing discs or axillary inputs. The blue/white is for power amplifiers and stays on when the deck is on. Also be sure the remote wire that goes to the amp is not pinched and grounded out to the frame of the car. Let me know, and be sure to leave feedback or I don't get paid.

Audio Output problems


Currently you have the blue wire from your Kenwood head unit connected to the blue wire in the Chrysler wire harness adapter. You need to disconnect this wire, and reconnect it to the blue/white wire coming from your Kenwood head unit instead. You probably already have the remote wire from your subwoofer amp connected there; both wires need to be attached to the blue/white Kenwood remote output. Your LHS is equipped with a factory amp. The blue wire in the Chrysler harness activates the amplifier, but it's connected to your Kenwood's power antenna activation output; therefore it's only being turned on when the tuner is selected.
