When you wired the radio, did you wire it to the switched 12 v wire or the constant(hot) 12 v wire? because the switched wired makes the radio turn off when you turn the key off, the contant 12 volt is to keep your clock on, you might want to check a wiring diagram to see that you did it correctly, ive had that problem with radios ive installed

If you used a wire harness to connect with the factory setup, try running the power wire to your fusebox. Find a fuse that is only live when the car is running and insert the wire with the fuse.

If you are hooking 'blue wire' (remote turn on for amp) to the power antenna wire (usually also blue) from the radio that could be your problem since the antenna only gets power when the radio is used

try using the switched 12 volt wire you used to connect your stereo power

i will assume all other wiring is correct and if so this should fix your issue - if not write me back with as many details as you can about how you have things wired and i will try to help more

good luck!!

What does the wire that comes out of the back of the amplifier that says REM hook to?


It connects to a fused, switched 12 volt power source; one that comes on when the radio comes on, preferrably the blue/white wire from the back of an aftermarket stereo.

Hooking up amplifier to stock radio in Lexus ls400 1991


Hi Robin, I think I may be able to help. The instructions are referring to an aftermarket stereo and not the factory one. Most aftermarket stereos have a blue wire that runs either the power antenna or an accessory that turns on with the radio(amp, eq, power crossover,ect.) As far as the RCA cables, once again, most aftermarket stereos have RCA outputs for an amplifier. Factory ones don't.You can go to Wal-Mart or ABC warehouse and buy a wire harness just for this particular application and then all you do is plug the harness into the factory harness, everything is all pre-wired so there is no guesswork involved and no mistakes.

How do i intall my amp?


first you need to run a power cable for the battery to where ever you are going to place the amp DO NOT hook the cable to the battery until the very last just wire it to the amp for now.next you will want to ground your amp hook the ground wire to the amp and the other end to a solid piece of metal in the car this is very important if you don't get good metal on metal contact you'll blow a fuse. If you can hide it well strip back a bit of carpeting and use sand paper to remove all paint from the metal and drill a hole for a screw. once that is finished you will need to run a remote wire from the amp to the car stereo usually these are the blue wire on the harness in the dash. once that is hooked up run the rca cables (reds and whites) plug in to amp and then in to back of cd player. once this is all hooked up and fully secure hook the power cable to the battery make good contact and if everything is grounded right you should get the lights on in the amp. Next step hook up the speakers run speaker wire from the amp to your speakers make sure negative goes to negative and positive to positive or you'll get clipping and it will sound like ****. that's pretty much the jist of it. if you have any questions let me know.

Wireing


I believe that this model Sony amp includes High Level inputs. Those allow you to connect the normal speaker wires coming out of the factory stereo to the amp. If for some reason it doesn't include the inputs you can buy a high level to low lever converter that will give you rca from the factory unit.
