    Another question about head unit install

    Ok so I am about to start installing my head unit. Getting ready to do the soldering and such.

    I have a remote antenna so I believe I will need to connect some sort of auto on for the antenna onto my receiver?

    I have a cord coming out of the head unit that says Auto on for amp and or antenna. My question is how do I wire both to that?

    Wow I am confused. It has a rubber peice on the end of the remote start coming from the head unit. Am I suppose to take that off then solder it to my harness or what?

    Re: Another question about head unit install

    Ok here is some more info

    My harness has the following two wires

    Blue= Power Antenna

    Blue/White = remote turn on

    My radio has only one blue and white wire that says remote turn on use to wire amp/antenna

    Can I wire the blue/white from my harness right into the remote cable for my amp or do I need to pass it through the radio somehow
    (does that make sense?)

    Use it for power antenna and remote wire.

    If you are putting 2 wires onto it then yes, cut that strip the wire back and then splice, solder, crimp or however you chose to secure them together. If you had just one wire to connect to it than you could crimp a spade connector on to that and slide it in to it's female counterpart on the hu.

    I guess I am going to use a butt connector

    One more question and I feel like a jackass asking it. How do I use a butt connector? Are they used for splicing two wires together I guess?

    Nah, it's cool. There is 2 ends on the butt connector, 1 for each wire that is going in it. 1-Take your remote wire, and your antennae wire (the ones that are going to the wire on the hu) strip them back enough to slide in one end. 2-twist the wires together to where they look like 1 wire. 3- Insert it in to 1 end of the connecor and then crimp the connector ( you should have a labeled crimping section on your wire stipper ), be sure to lightly tug on the wire after crimping to be sure it is in securely. 4- strip back wire on hu, and crimp it in to the other end. And your done, you can wrap it in electrical tape once your finished but it's your call.

    Wait could I just use solder twist the two wires together. solder them to the one wire then tape instead of using the butt connector?
