The car had existing cables in it and i tried hooking up the amp to a sub i know works. The amp doesn't light up or anything and the sub doesnt put sound. What's wrong?


Those existing cables are suspect. Start by getting power to your amp, then connect other wires, regardless of color code, to the sub. Beware of wires that look good but really are shorted somewhere. You may have to label each wire as you go along to identify its real function. You may even have to run some new wires to replace existing ones.

What is rmt on the amp


On most amps, rmt (remote) is a wire that connects to your stereo remote wire to the remote port on the amp. The remote wire turns your amp on when turning ignition on and turns amp off when turning ignition off. This wire needs to be connected as without it, you will drain your battery.

I dont know how to setup my amplifier to MP3 Stereo...


Just like any other stereo. Get a wire harness for your car and match the wire colors together, tape them or cap them, or best yet soder them. Then run rca cables from the output in the back of the stereo to the amp. The run a remote wire (bue with white stripe) from the stereo to the amp remote terminal. Hook up the amp normal. let me know.

Run the remote on the amp to a known switched power. (one that goes on and off with the switch) Does not have to be associated with the wires in the stereo.

1998 Toyota Camry Le Wiring Diagram. i want to hook a subwoofer with stock stereo. Need to know what to use so it will power off when car is turned off.


Hello motoxbear17,

You do not specify what particular amp or powered subwoofer you intend to install, so I'm assuming that you have an amp that uses a remote 12V+ signal to turn the amp on and off. Some powered subwoofer systems like the Bazookas, Infinity Basslink, and MTX Thunderlink use an "audio sensing" circuit that turns the sub on only when the radio is on. Some amps also have such a "turn-on" circuit that is active when speaker level inputs are used. I'd recommend that you check the documentation that came with your amp and see if it has such a feature.

For a normal subwoofer amp with power, ground, and remote terminals, the remote terminal usually just needs a 12V+ source to turn the amp on.

In your vehicle, the gray wire coming from the receiver harness is a 12V+ switched source.

Here's a link to the '98 Camry wiring color code:

http://www.modifiedlife.com/car-stereo-radio-wiring-diagram-1998-toyota-camry/

With this connection, the amp will power on whenever the vehicle ignition is on or in accessory, regardless of whether the radio is on or off. If this is objectionable, you can simply add a SPST toggle switch inline with the lead and turn it on only when needed.

Hope this helps.

How do you install it correct


the audio source's output should connect to the inputs of the TS-WX11. caution on power supply connection: don't reverse the polarity of the positive and the negative wires.
Remember also to set your HU's output in order for it to work. If it does not work yet please give the details on your HU and other devices being used.

I have a fujitsu am/fm/cd/ tape player out of a 93 camry and would like to put it in a 95 camry but the color code for the wiring doesn't match and thats what I need , can you help Thanks John


Hello jrhauber,

The '93 and '95 Camry have identical color codes. Likewise, the vehicle harness connectors are the same.

Car Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Blue/Yellow
Car Radio Ignition Switched 12V+ Wire: Gray
Car Radio Ground Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Illumination Wire: Green
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Black/Red
Car Stereo Amplifier Trigger Wire: N/A
Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Pink
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Purple
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Blue
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Black
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Red
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): White

You can purchase an aftermarket wiring harness that plugs into the OEM radio. The part number you need for a 1995 Camry is Metra 71-1761 available here for $9.99.

Hope this helps.

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

Ok, I am assuming this is the 600 watt amplifier?

DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY!!

Supplies needed:
- 8 Gauge power wire (long enough to run from your battery to the amp placement) WITH an inline fuse!!
- Depending on your stereo (if it has amp pre-outs or not) you will either need RCA cables (long enough to reach your amp from your stereo) OR a Line-Out converter AND RCA cables.
- The power lead that connects to your "REMOTE" line on your stereo (long enough to reach from amp to stereo - usually blue)
- A good ground wire ( long enough to reach a metal part of your car from the amp)

======================================================================
STEP 1: Find a spot to run the power wire from your battery - through your firewall and into your car - and then to your amp. (DO NOT CONNECT IT TO ANYTHING YET)
STEP 2: Remove your car stereo and look to see if you have PRE-AMP outs (RCA connectors for an amp on the rear of the unit)
A- if you do, GREAT.. proceed to step 3
B- if you don't.. you will need to get a LINE-OUT CONVERTER - what this does is converts the higher signals from your standard wires on your radio, to RCA style wires to connect to your amp.
B2- you will also want to buy a wiring harness kit for your stereo, unless you want to hack away at your factory wires.. (not recommended) - connect the harness kit to your factory wire harness, wire in your leads for the output converter, and run the other end to your stereo.*
*you will need to know which wires run to the speakers you plan to power with the amplifier
B3 - once the converter is properly connected - proceed to step 3
STEP 3: Plug the RCA cables into the stereo or converter, and run them properly from behind your radio to the amp but DO NOT CONNECT THEM YET.
STEP 4: Connect the REMOTE wire from your stereo to the same wire for your amp . (this enables the amp to turn on/off with your radio.. otherwise.. you will have alot of dead batteries)
STEP 5: re-install your stereo into the car.
STEP 6: Connect the RCA speakers into the INPUTS on your amp
STEP 7: Connect the REMOTE wire to your amp.
STEP 8: Connect the speaker wire from the OUTPUTS on your amp to the speakers you wish to power
STEP 9: Connect the POWER CABLE to the amp PROPERLY
STEP 10: Connect the GROUND CABLE to a metal part of your car (sheet metal, not just a bolt)
STEP 11: Connect the POWER CABLE to the battery cable
STEP 12: Re-connect your Battery
STEP 13: Start your car, and test your radio.

If you have any issues from here.. you need to re-check all of your connections.
