Need help ya'll! I have a stock hu (single cd/mp3) I have no factory amp, I have all my wires ran but what the hell do I use for remote turn on??!! I tried the yellow/green, did not work. On my 05 zx4 se, I have an extra plug hanging loose on the back of my radio, it is not plugged in to anything but will fit into hu, do I need to use one of those wires? Please help[?|]

one of those harness' is for speed sensor which adjusts your volume to the speed. another harness is for you speakers and the 3rd one is for your power. i thought the blue wire was for amp turn on? or was it the blue/white, or was that for the power antenna?

I used Pin #4 located on the 2nd wiring harness near the bottom.
I think It was yellow/black or black/green... I can pull my HU and check if you want.

I have an 2003 with mp3, and an aftermarket amp, tho...

here's the 2005 wiring:
Radio 12v : orange/black
Radio Ground : black/green and black (there are two grounds)
Radio Ignition : yellow/green
Radio Illumination : orange/black (dimmer) - pos. wire
Factory Amp Turn-on (if you have the audiophile or sony system) : white/red (sub amp)
Speed Sense : white/green

Are you installing an aftermarket amp? You can run a tiny jumper wire from the amp Power wire terminal, to the remote terminal to see If you amp doesn't turn on.

If it doesn't, then your ground isn't attached to a common ground, or you have a blown fuse, or other power wire failure.

foci_fosho,

I will try that and see, do I leave the ground hooked to the amp? After I had everything hooked up I checked the fusues to make sure they were not blown. I got to pissed off to mess with it any more last night, but I will try that, I'll let ya now. Thanks alot
