    Re: I am confused on how to wire the wiring harness for the head unit

    I never used factory ground when installing an amp. Too much resistance in the factory ground. Ground HU to chassis.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    So I connected the blue wire to the blue and remote turn on to the blue/white and my antenna doesnt come out of my car.

    Should i connect BOTH the blue and remote turn on wire from my harness to the HU blue/white?
