View Full Version : Remote turn on has no signal
03-16-2007, 01:52 PM
I just installed a radio in my truck but the remote turn on wire is not turning on my amp. Is there any wire I can use besides the one coming from my radio?
Can I just run a 12V accessory wire to it?

Yep, a 12v accessory line will work fine.

I just called pioneer and they said their radios put out a momentary pulse of 12V. He did not say whether or not a 12V accessory would work.
Your amplifier only needs a .5 amp 12V+ signal to turn on. You can use any 12V+ source but make sure it's fused properly!

I hooked it up without a fuse. I only ran it as temporary though. I wil put a fuse on it when I run it under the carpet. Until I do that I am not to concerned about the fuse. I have two years warrenty left on the amp and I would not mind getting a new amp if it gets messed up.
The fuse does more than keep your amp from getting messed up, it keeps your truck from catching fire.
