i'm trying to install an amp i just got to my pioneer deh-4600MP.

I have everything connected expect the REMOTE LEAD thing from the head unit, I don't know which wire it is! Does it come directly from the head unit, or from the wiring of the car(before the wiring harness).

Please someone post a diagram or something of which connector i'm supposed to connect the remote lead to.

edit: this just occured to me, does my current factory amp using the remote lead? will i have to take that out or something first?

ok wow, i got it to work, it was a blue wire.

But what i did, i just cut a section from the wire and attached the remote wire to it, so i guess two things are using the same remote lead.

Can I do this? I'm not cutting the power in half or anything am I?

Also, can I use the negative battery terminal connector for my ground?

You should be fine doing that. the white and blue wires at the antenna wires and the ones you are supposed to use.

Yes, you can use the neg bat term, but any clean steet metal will do.

ok, now i have another question.

I'll need to hide the wires, which side is easiest to use? right or left?

And how do I go about removing the lower door molding so I can put the wires under there?

Drivers side is easier, as you don't have to remove the GB, and the drivers kick panel is easier to remove at well. The lower door molding just pops off.

one problem with running down the middle....

Over time, people can step on the wire underneath the carpet and eventually fray it.
