sorry, newb here with a newb question
i got a deh 11 for christmas and sold my old car with a better hu in it so im putting this in my new truck.
if i hook up just power and ground, and just leave the ignition switch unconnected, it should turn on right?

That's actually all I have attached to my HU. Power, Ground, Remote, Antenna, and preouts.

alright i got that working and put in the dash, then i pulled a sub and amp out of storage to put it in. i pulled the hu out and of course, something happened and my power wire has no power anymore. probably shorted something
