Tap into the blue antenna lead on the harness if you have an aftermarket head unit. If not, you can run from the switched ignition power wire on the factory head unit. If you pull the head unit out, it may have a diagram on it telling you which wire does what. There are two power wires - one is constant power to maintain radio presets, clock, etc, and the other one is triggered when you turn the key - that's the one you'd want. If you use constant power, your amp would never shut off, even when the key was out of the ignition. If none of that is feasible, run the wire from the battery to your remote turn-on connection on the amp, but put a switch on it up near the driver's seat, so you can turn the amp on manually.

If you are using an aftermarket cd player, than you will have audio output jacks on the back of the cd deck, One Red and One White.
If you are going to run an amp or external power, then remove your deck and you will see the blue remote wire, this wire should be connected to amp remote wire or screw.

Amplifier enable. Where to mount rmt hookup on pioneer deh-1400 (old) so my amp/sub can work!!!

Amp turn on wire should be a blue wire with a white stripe on that pioneer unit. extend that wire out to the amps remote turn on wire input. And once the radio is turned on it will sent a 12volt signl and turn on the amp.

This car reciever is difficult

should be a blue wire to power the remote to the amp. Plug it into the amps remote hookup point and that should do it.
