    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. got a question? 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?
