Get out your volt meter and find a wire that gets power when the ignition is in the on position. Tap into that and you are good to go.

usually, the accessory/ignition wire is colored red and is the best solution.

I had this same issue. It is like it's almost not there. I eventually resulted in running my remote wire off of my positive speaker wire and it works quite well
