I have recently learnt that my pioneer head unit has only 1 remote wire for aerial/subs. Therefore when the car is on the aerial will always stay up even when i am listening t a cd.. is htere anyway to solve this.. and what will happen when i need to put the subs back in the car how will this work?

Norrmally the head unit/deck has a blue wire for the remote in the Pioneer set. So check this out and use a meter to see for voltage when the head set is switched on. Now you can connecct this as the remote swiching required for your amplifier. hope you look into the back side of the head unit ,in the cluster wire from the connectors. Good day
When a head unit doesn't remember settings like yours, then the Yellow constant battery wire isn't hooked up correctly. This wire provides power to your unit constantly from the battery so that it can remember the settings and such. Your aerial not going up is the Blue power antenna wire. This wire will provide power so that when you turn your unit on, it powers the antenna to go up. Hope this helps!
power wire from batt fused to positive on amp .earth wire eg - to bare
metal in car with bolt or screw. remote wire from amp to remote wire on
back of head unit mostly blue wire it tells amp when to turn on then
you need a set of rca cables to send sound from head unit to amp they
go in subout if you wanna use sub or rear or front out for full sound
best thing is to buy amp kit cheaper most the time and all you need
there hope this helps
Connect a DC voltmeter between the "remote" (+) terminal and the "ground" (-) terminal on the amp. When you turn on your Pioneer, you should read 12-14V. If you get voltage for a second and then it goes away, either the incorrect wire from the head unit is connected, or the head unit remote turn-on is defective. If the voltage remains on the terminal and the amp immediately turns back off, it's possible that the remote turn-on is not supplying adequate current for the amp. To determine if that is the case, run a separate wire from a positive (+) accessory terminal (cigarette lighter or fuse box) to the amp remote terminal. If the amp then turns on and stays on, you'll need to wire a relay into the turn-on wire. The wiring for such a relay is shown here. Most any 12V SPST or SPDT relay from an auto parts store or Radio Shack will work OK.
3 things make sure all the speakers in the car have tape to avoid grounding the speakers
next make sure all wires in back of unit are taped
if all that is taped good its the amp over loading use a larger ground wire to fix this
hope this helped
pioneer head units only distribute like 200 rms or so to the speakers. you might have to find a blue maybe even blue with white striped wire and nick it just enough to tie your amp wire around it. tape it up and see if it works.
For one thing I hope you know you need an amp to even power subs at all.. The remote wire coming off the rca wiring that you hook your subs up with has to go on the prong 3-in on the top here is a rough diagram: the = signs are power and ground and the prongs are thicker the comma is you remote.. - - - - - - - , - = - - - - - - - - - =
You need a wire coming out of that slot on the wiring harness.. it should be blue. and unless you have a power antenna(comes out when you turn your radio on) then you dont need the blue/blue&white power ant. wire you can just cut it and cap it. if your amp isn't coming on when you turn your ignition to acc then your remote wire isn't properly attached..
The system remote control is usually a blue wire on your decks harness and it is for an amplifier for a sub or other speakers. It sends power to the subs amp when the deck is turned on. You may need to find the wires coming off the antenna and splice them into the red power switching wire 12v on you decks wire harness. Good luck
