Best to refer to colors. Aside from the speaker connections, the deck will have RED, YELLOW, BLACK, and BLUE wires. Sometimes there is both a blue and a blue with a white stripe.

YELLOW - constant power. It keeps your clock and radio presets.
RED - Ignition power. Connecting this to power controlled by the key will have the radio come on when the car starts and off when the key is turned off.
BLACK - ground to bare metal.
BLUE - this is the wire that goes to the amp remote-on terminal.

If the deck has both BLUE and BLUE/STRIPE the BLUE goes to the power antenna ONLY, and the BLUE/STRIPE goes to the amp.

ok im new to this and my local electronics store trying to charge $160 to install it so i thought i would rather do it. my deck has a all those colors and it has a remote wire that is blue with a green stripe.there is also a power connection wire that is blue with the white stripe.Do i just hook it up color for color and my remote wire attached to the extended one from my amp. But in my deck how does a 12 volt get sent threw? do i need to attach a switched constant wire to the remote making it a three wire crimp??
