Elliott, You can pick up this ignition "hot" connection on the fuse box at the hot side of any fuse labeled accessory or of course radio or stereo. Most fuse boxes have a male connection just for this. Barring that you can hook it along side any component on the car that only works with the key or or better yet something that only works with the key switch set to accessory.

Trying to hook up aftermarket stereo with no factory harness. How can I go about wiring my new stereo wires or my replacement harness (with module) to my car's already existing loose stereo wiring??


Hi Daniel

You need to test & label all the loose wires.

Use a multimeter in Ohms mode to place a tickle of electricity to each speaker wire. you should hear each speaker crackle. (Multimeters only use a 9v battery internally)
Label each pair of wires for speakers.
Their color coding may help. Keep the negative & positive wires to the speakers correct so that the speakers all travel in a forward motion together or you will have distortion from one speaker that is out of phase with the others.
You will also have a permanent +12v line and a Ignition Key +12 volt line.
One keeps the station memory etc when the ignition key is off.

Cheers

That's because the memory wire has not been connected to a permanent live supply.

There will be an ignition switched 12v supply and a memory wire. The first is yellow on many brands and the second is red, but you need to refer to your fitting manual to check or look directly at the wiring harness as the wires are often individually labelled.

Since they both take 12v some folks mistakenly think that they can just be piggy-backed to each other and feed from the same supply. They can, but only if it's to a permanent live feed but that then leaves the risk of the unit being left switched on when the car is parked and draining the battery.
