Ok so I bought the Scosche wire harness adapter and matched all the colors up. Everything works fine aside from my power radio antenna and I don't know why. Also, I just put in a new amp and sub. Does the remote wire go to the orange or the yellow wire in the harness?

One more thing, where is the best place to feed wires from head unit to trunk to make the cables invisible? I couldn't find an easy way to get under the carpet

Ps. I lost my Scosche manual and can't find it on the Internet to see where I went wrong. Just buy a new one at wal mart just to look at the manual?

I don't know about the easiest, but I ran my cables above the glove box, removed the passenger side door sill and nearby trim, and back seat to get to the battery and trunk.

That's exactly where mine run. They're zip tied to the heater case, and run under the sill and through the rear trim panel to the trunk.

Lol its all good. I figured it out. I ripped out my dash and everything in the dash, ripped out the back seats and wired four RCA cables and the remote wire through so.e metal framing where my dash would be and then ripped out my carpet, ran the wires under the carpet to the driver side foot ledge thing, ripped all that plastic out and ran wires under that into my back seats through the back rests of the back seats into my trunk. Then i put everything back together. I wanted the RCA on driver side to eliminaappate EM I terference from the power cables on the passenger side. Oh, and apparently, connecting the blue wire and the red wire with the remote wire hooks up everything like I asked. Don't know how I figured that out, but I blew a fuse figuring it out, lol.

The remote wire should be blue on both sides of the harness. Blue to blue. Anything else, generally would be wrong. If you connect the remote to the red, the antenna will extend as soon as you click on the ignition and you won't be able to retract it by turning off the radio. Orange is for illumination or mute or some such function like that; Also no good for a power antenna.
