The Chrysler Dodge radio sends full volume to the Infinity amplifier using other cables it sends voltage with data to the amplifier and tells the amplifier lower or increase the volume, there is no way to tap or get the signal that is way pac build this interface for your radio CAN buss adapter hi low
you will need to get whats called a line level converter. This device takes a channel from your factory stereo, pads the level down to a reasonable level your amp can take without causing clipping. You can then use your external amp and subwoofers. One major problem with low quality line level converters is alternator hum. Just a warning. Good luck
Most factory radios do not have RCA outs, but most will have a remote wire. Usually used for a power antenna option. Your remote wire from the amp could be hooked to the power antenna wire on the factory radio and it would work great for turning on the amp. As for the RCA inputs on your amp, you will not be able to use them without RCA outs on your factory deck. Although most amps offer a high level input alternative and will use the standard speaker level out on your factory deck. This means the rear channel speaker wires from your factory deck will be used to feed the signal to the amp. You will have to check the instructions and manufactorer recomendations for the amp you are trying to hook up. Have fun and good luck!
Good day ma'am, hi, hooking up an extra amp. on your radio is done by audio professionals, but if you can remove the radio out from your ford, you can install that extra amp. Just follow the diagram below.
You need to find line out of your radio to line in of your kicker amp. connect them using audio shielded cables. connect your speakers to the amp. I guess you this already.
i just sent you the manual for your am everything you need to know is in there. i also have tht plug if you need it. but will only be used for high level inputs for factory radio's if you have a after market radio use your rca jacks. or if you want you could use a converter if you have a factory radio that makes speakers outputs from the radiointo rca jack that will go into the amp. the rca'sare the best way it will sound much cleaner. good luck
What car are you looking for the wiring diagram for?
A simple line level converter would convert an input signal to a factory speaker - into a useable Low Level RCA signal for your amplifier.
There is your signal - now all you'll need from behind the radio is the 12V Remote signal.
Send me your make/model/year, and i will tell you which wire to use.

Check your rca cables they might be loose or not connected to the amp or the radio. Sometimes those rca cable outlets get worn out by being bumped, moved, hooking up and pulling out connectors. Plug in your rca cords and wiggle them on the amp while radio is on and see if the music cuts in and out
Its a must to change your radio to an aftermarket radio because its safer and it has an rem wire that for the amp and subwoofer, if you run it a factory radio then the sound if any will be the voice and everything so it will sound distorted and crappy with abnormal bass
Check for audio from the radio. Hook up some test speakers and make sure the radio is working. If not then your last stage audio amplifier might be defective. also test you after-market amp by injecting audio into in and see if it is still functioning. If the radio is not working and the after-market amp is then the radio is the problem and its internal amplifier will have to be replaced. If the radio works and the after-market amp does not then the after-market amp will have to be repaired. I would suggest getting this testing done by a professional auto-sound shop, to make sure the proper testing is done.
You can not connect the speaker lines directly to the RCA inputs of your amplifier. But you can connect them to your amplifier if your amp has a high level input. Most of the time it looks just like the speaker jacks of the amp, but smaller. It will be labeled high level input or speaker input. Sometimes an amplifier will have a jack for a wiring harness just for this purpose. Some amplifiers have them and some don't.
If your amplifier does not have them, you can purchase a line level adapter at most anyplace that installs car stereos. it converts the speaker level to the proper level of the RCA input. Just follow the instructions on how to connect it.
If you try to connect the speaker outputs directly to the RCA input of the amplifier you will blow up the pre-amp in your amplifier.
