That's the tricky part....last time I did the LOC before I finally broke down and replaced my deck.....I had to find a switched 12v by taking my multimeter and testing wires. ;-| Finally after having no luck finding one I just ran a 12 volt wire straight from my fuse box as a "turn-on" wire. I think that would be the way to go, this way you know exactly what your tapping into...andjayik said:Gonna pick up a line level adaptor, where would i plug the remote wire from the amp?
Exactly, it's just a 12 volt power cable that only is on when the vehicle is on, so that your amp doesn't stay powered on after you shut your car off. I've heard of people using many different wires as sources, but I never had any luck finding a soild one, so I went straight to the fuse box. Aftermarket decks have this wire built right into the deck, so you can have the amp turn on and off with the deck rather then the car.andjayik said:i see so when u turn the key the amp comes on.
Exactly its all databus impulse controlled now....and subsituting a new deck in is getting more and more intresting as the models get newer and newer... :wall:fourthmeal said:...They just don't use that anymore on these new decks.
Yep! Which sux because I have a Pioneer F900BT DVD nav unit sitting here waiting for install (as soon as I get my replacement dash part to fit it)gmercedesbenz said:Exactly its all databus impulse controlled now....and subsituting a new deck in is getting more and more intresting as the models get newer and newer... :wall:fourthmeal said:...They just don't use that anymore on these new decks.
Really?? There's something I never knew before.Squishy said:In the earlier Escapes, the cigarette lighter plug (not the accessory outlet) was switched by the ignition.
