    Icon32 Remote Lead

    Whats the best wire to hook into for your remote lead to an amp on a Chevy Tahoe 2007? I hooked it into the white wire on the back of the radio (power antenna wire?) and it works, but the amp comes on and off at weird times. (While the car is not on!)) Any help?

    well, if you dont use the remote power wire from the back of the deck, then any ignition power source would work better then a power antennae wire

    Re: Remote Lead

    I would assume this is the stock radio? If so...

    Go to walmart (or hardware store) and buy a test light. Probably $10
    Pull out the radio, leave the harness intact.

    Turn the car to the accessory position.
    Ground the test light and press it into the wire harness. When the test light goes on...stop.
    Turn the car off and recheck that same wire. If the light is off...turn the car back on...light should go back on.

    This would be your accessory wire you can tap into for your amps.
    Shouldnt take more then 10 to 20 minutes to find it this way...minus the time to remove the dash etc.

    Just remember....the amp will stay on with your car in the accessory...not when the radio is on.
    Just do not make the mistake of not turning your car all the way off or the battery will die from the amp staying on.

    Just hooked up a friends amp this way to his stock VeraCruz radio...worked fine.

    Oh...and we used T-taps to secure his remote wire to the stock accessory wire.
    You can get them at Ace Hardware for under 50 cents.

    This way you do not have to cut any wires....just put the T-tap on...add your new remote wire and press firmly.

    If you ever need to take out the remote wire...just use needle nose pliers to take the T-tap off...and your factory wiring will still be good to go.
