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.

I need help installing a rockford fosgate punch 75hd amp in my 2013 ford f150. I ran the power cable but now I'm having trouble finding the radios remote turn on/off lead. Took the dash apart and...


If u are using a factory radio it may not have a remote turn-on (Usually the blue wire on the main connector to radio. and do not connect to any blue wire without checking the voltage) if there is not blue wire (remote) you can connect your amp to the red 12v (accessory) wire which will turn on amp when key is in accessory position and works the same and will not hurt your amp. If u do use this method and a pop is introduced when turning on radio and amp may need to purchase a relay to delay the amp turn on.

Power and ground are good cant get amp to turn on


Don't forget the most inportant one, the remote wire!!!! It tells the amp when to turn on/off. Should be connected to your aftermarket radio amp or power anteanna lead (should be blue). If running a factory radio you can use the radio fuse power to provide a signal to it..

2007 galant factory radio amp instal


Run a fused wire from your battery to your amp location. Ground amp to chassis, let ground be no longer than 20 in. For remote turn on wire, run a wire from your fuse box, to your amp and plug it into the R.E.M. slot on the amp. remember to put a switch in the wire somewhere easily accessible from drivers seat so you can easily turn your amp on, and off. If the switch isn't off it'll drain your battery when your car's not on. To attach signal wires, make sure your amp has highlevel inputs, splice wires from your speaker wires, and hook them up to the H.L. inputs on your amp. However, my advice as an audio enthusiast, and experienced installer is get an aftermarket unit. Sound quality is much, much better. Less distortion, better radio reception, much better music tuning ability. A good unit can run you a lot of money but, if your planning on driving this car for a long time, invest in an after market unit, you will not regret it. But if you don't want to then there's your instructions, if you have any more questions, please ask..

Connecting amp to stock radio in a 2010 carolla and need to know what wire is remote turn on lead


There is no remote turn on lead on a factory radio. The way the shops do it is to run the remote wire to your radio fuse which turns on/off with the ignitin. If you really wanted to know you can use a volt meter but it will still turn on/off with the ignition but takes a lot longer to find plus you have to remove the radio!!

My amp is not working! i have a live from battery and a good earth,but still nothing,does it need to be earthed to back of head unit?


Do you have the remote turn-on lead hooked up?

There should be 3 wires on the power side of the amplifier.

Ground - to the car chassis
Power - to the car battery
Remote - to the remote turn on lead from the head unit. (this emits a 12V signal to a relay inside the amplifier for it to turn on when the radio does)

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.

Im trying to install aftermarket stereo


it is located behind the stock stereo up in the back farther and it look like a black box. The wires depend on the radio but if its a cd player go to like walmart and look at the radio wire harnesses and look for the one that'll work for your vehicle

Remote wire hook up


The Remote wire should connect to the remote turn on lead from you radio(most aftermarket radios use a blue and white or a blue wire for the remote turn on). This wire will send a 12v signal to the amp from the radio when the radio is turned on. You can disconnect the remote turn on lead from the amp and jump a wire from the terminal marked battery to the remote turn on terminal just to see if the amp powers up. Do not leave it this way however because your amp will not shut off and your battery will go dead.
