Default 2004 chevy tahoe remote turn on wire

Hello everyone, I have a friend with a 2004 Tahoe for whom I'm trying to install an amp and sub. He does NOT have a stock amplified system, navigation, DVD, etc. etc. He just has the stock CD player and speakers. The only problem I'm having is with the remote turn-on wire. I tapped into the stock amp turn-on Wire (small orange wire) on the head unit wiring harness, but it didn't work, and I have no idea where else I could tap into. I read that you can use a relay with pin 87 getting constant 12V, pin 86 12V ground, pin 30 12V output (I'm assuming this is where the remote signal would come from going to the amp), and pin 85 low current 12V input from the HU. Can I use the stock amp turn-on wire (small orange wire) that I previously attempted to tap into for this low-current wire? Will this work, or is there another wire I can tap into to get the remote turn-on signal? I've also read that there's a dark green wire behind the driver's side kick panel that is a 12V accessory lead. Will this work? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

google the make and model, as well as stereo install. u should be able to find a wireing diagram that will tell u what ur ignition Wire is for ur hu. tap into that, and it should work. thats what i had to do for my friends i just did a couple of days ago.

If you can't get the remote on the stock unit working correctly, get something like this:

http://www.mobileaudiocontrol.com/pr...2&l1=17612&l2=
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/PAC-O...QQcmdZViewItem

line level in, RCA and remote Power out. That might not be exactly what you need in that link, but I'm sure what you need exists and that's a start as to what to look for. The search terms I looked for were "line level converter remote".

You can do this but it has some cons too it..get one of these light testing thingies..(I don't know the name but you put the probes on the wire your testing and if the LED light turns on the it has power running to it)..so get one of those and find a wiring harnest somewere in the car were you can run the remote wire to the amp and test a few wires with the car off the flip the key on and check those same wire and see if the light turns on if so just connect it to that specific wire..but the thing is you won't be able to play your system without the car on..just a thought

Those units mentioned above sense when you have signal applied (radio on) and energize a 12V wire for use as a remote turn-on. So, the speaker-level outputs of your factory radio will signal this unit to turn your amps on after a 1 second delay. It's a lot nicer way of doing it than hooking into the ignition.
