I am from GUYANA, S.A.and deal mostly with Japanese vehicles but I am sure of one thing.
Forget about the pink wire. Find the wire that reads 0 volts when the
ignition is off, and 12 volts when ign. is turned to acc. Connect your amp's remote lead, and you are good.

What's the Motorola box under my back seat Chevy trailblazer 02 also I'm hooking a amp to battery where do I connect the amp turn on wire I guess it be remote wire


The motorolla box may be remnants of an old disk changer for the stereo. With an amp your power wire goes into the positive wire that goes to your battery, your ground wire will be connected to some bare metal close to wherever you decide to install the amp, and the blue remote wire will be connected to the remote wire that in on the wiring harness of your aftermarket radio ( I'm sure your not installing an amp with your stock radio). Good luck I hope this helps

The pink wire connects the remote CD controller to the radio to enable playing of CDs through the amp via the radio. The DK GRN wire from the radio turns on the amp.

How to connect aftermarket radio into 2002 toyota camry JBL radio (the standart wiring doesn't work).Thanks


Your aftermarket radio should have color-coded wires which identifies power, ground, speakers, etc. most depaetment stores carry a radio harness adapter kit. This will connect to your radio's exact color coded wires, and will plug right in to your factory's wiring plug. And don't forget electrical tape.

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.

My cd changer, radio and amp are inter connected.the owners manuel say that if all are not hooked up system will not work. i install an after market radio but cant get the factory amp to come on


Hello moemoneymood,

Since you did not specify the make and model of your aftermarket radio, I cannot pinpoint specific connection problems. Most aftermarket receivers have a "remote turn-on" lead, probably blue, but sometimes blue/white, usually terminated with a spade lug. In addition to power and ground, the amp requires this lead to be connected in order to properly operate.

Start by checking the wiring from the old receiver wiring harness and see which wires and what colors went to the stock amp. Then connect the corresponding wires from your new receiver to the amp. Some OEM receiver/amp systems had power and ground taken from the same harness, so you may need to run those separately.

Chevy Tahoe radio wiring problems


I had the same problem and here's what fixed it. By default, I did not connect the blue/white striped remote wire to the harness. Apparently there is an amp somewhere in the vehicle I did not know about. After looking at the factory wiring and the aftermarket harness, I noticed that the remote wire was used and I connected it with the remote wire on the harness and everything came up and worked perfect.
