    Amp Remote from H/U

    Got myself a second hand H/U (JVC KD-SX925R) but I cant find the amp remote wire for my amp. I am under the impression that it is usually blue right?? Have looked in the manual whihc I downloaded off the net, but there is no mention of wiring at all! Also headunit looses all settings when ignition is turned off and on. Can anybody help at all please?

    You have to swap your 'accessory' live with permanent live for the settings to stay.

    Which according to your manual should be the RED and YELLOW wires.
    The remote should be BLUE WITH WHITE STRIPE.

    Hope that sorts it.

    If you haven't got a remote wire, the best thing to do is either, wire it to the ignition fed live, accesptable, but the amp will be on with the engine, regardless of what the HU is doing.
    Or take a 12v feed from almost anywhere and put a toggle switch in it, that way you choose when to have the amp on.
