    Pioneer HU in a Mercury Mariner

    Apparently I don't have an amp-turn on wire in my '05 Mercury Mariner.

    Pretty simple question: what can I use to remedy that?
    Can I just splice the turn on into the red (switched) power wire, as in the one that tells the HU when to turn on and off?

    So I wired it all up...but caught a snag:

    When I power off my car, the deck stays on playing. It should shut off when I open the door. Should I pull the amp turn-on from the switched power wire? I'm not even running it out to an amp right now.
