    what radio do you have in now?

    The remote cable normally goes to a cable on headunits, but if you have a standard VX one then you will have to wire it to a switched live wire instead

    its the CD30 standard vauxhall headunit. I have the adaptor for the rear speakers so i can take the wires to the amp.
    I just dont know where to wire the remote cable to be able to turn the amp on and off . . . if thats possbile?
    I have a switch and everything ready.

    If you remove the power socket, you will see a loose wire hanging (unused). This is a switched live feed, so will only work when you turn car on/off.

    You can use this for your remote for the amp.

    If possible, use the auto antenna control.
