I'm not entirely sure but i think that your only supposed to have the blue remote wire hooked up. but like i said i'm not sure. i hooked my amp up and somehow my remote wire shorted and fried my ignition switch so don't hold me to it, but maybe look into it. I think that you might have a constand power hooked up to a switched power cable for your amp so haveing the constant power to your amp, asied from your 12v at the battery, your amp might not even know when your car is on or off. hope this helps sorry for the open ender

It might be solid blue.All you need is a low ampere power supply that will turn on/off with the deck itself or the car in general.you can run your remote lead to the fusebox and tie it in on the radio fuse and when the car turns on so does the amp-and vice versa. Or just find the power antenna wire on the back of the deck-it does the same thing when the deck is on it sends juice telling the antenna to stay up. hope that helps
Look at the enwood. I bet you have the remote wire hooked to the blue wire insted of the blue/white wire. The blue wire goes dad when you play a cd as it is for a power antenna. The blue/white wire is your amp turn on.
Now, if you do not have a blue/whie and only blue, then obviously that circuit in the radio is bad in whch case your only other option s are either connecting it to an accesory fuse or using a toggle switch connected to power.
on the back of he cd player is the wire harnest there should be a SOLID blue wire on there take the remote wire connect it to that and run it to your amp and put it where the amp says remote. there is an easier way you can hook up your power to the amp then take the remote wire and just run it directly to the power wire on the amp you should only need a couple inches of wire and it will work fine
What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go.
Ah, common problem.
You hooked up the remote turn on wire for the amp to the power antenna wire (solid blue). Hook up the remote turn on wire for the amp to the blue wire with white stripe.
The power antenna only provides power when the deck is in tuner mode for the power antenna to be extended, intuitively, and cuts power in any other mode, because certainly it's only needed for AM/FM reception.
