i have 1987 ford bronco 2 and i installed a new deck in it. and just got a new amp and i went to install it. at first i was all like WFT why isn't it working then i found out that my truck doesn't have a REM wire, i had to use a converter so my new deck would work in my truck and the converter has a REM wire but my truck it self doesn't.
i see it right, but it is only coming out of the stereo harness (i called it a converter because i am dumb:P) but ya if you look at where the harness plugs into the truck it doesn't have that wire, its an empty slot, so like the harness has the REM but my truck doesn't support it.
he's saying his stereo does not have a remote wire. period. The aftermarket harness that he got to put the aftermarket stereo into his truck had a wire for it, but his radio didnt have the wire for it.
Your best bet dude, would be to find another power source that turns on when the key is on. Not sure if it needs to be low voltage or not, i don't quite remember. I think it's just 12 volt though.
if he doesn't have the REM in his truck period then i'm guessing when he takes the keys out of the ignition the HU will stay turned on until he turns it off manually, correct me if i'm wrong. without a REM it won't know when to turn on/off. all in all i'd say you're facked jp
hold it hold it hold it. the REM wire has nothing to do with geting power to the HU thats just for the amp. the Red ACC wire and the Yellow wire is what gets the power. these are all on the back of the HU ACC goes to something powered when the ignition is hot and the yellow is the clock wire as we call it. it goes to something with constant power.
I know that, but his stereo has no remote wire period. As I said before.
I thought the red wire was on all the time. It is on my setup. And the yellow is the ''power on'' switch wire for my stereo. But luckily for me, my stereo comes with a remote wire to hook up to an amp. Unfortunately, some retard glued my carpet down to the freaking floor...I hate having to have exposed wiring on the floor.
