Default Need some help.

So I wanna run my power wire from my amp to my ignition wire, so my amp will cut off with my truck. Does anyone know which wire is the ignition wire??? Thanks for the help. I'm trying to get this done now.

If you can't find the ignition wire you could always run it from the battery and put a toggle switch in so you could manually cut it off whenever you need to. As far as I know of it cuts off when the radio is off if you have the remote wire hooked up to the back of the radio.

Look here for your truck, then make sure with a test light. Worked for me.

There is a blue/white wire on the back of your headunit. Hook a remote wire from your amp to that wire. Problem solved.
