at least i think it is the wiring harness but some one told me that it could be my ground.

ok i checked my wiring harness with the sticky post of the wiring diagram and i am missing the remote turn on pin and the aux shield ground. Do i need these?

What is your problem? What year is your car?

It depends how you sourced power for the aftermarket unit. Too many variables without knowing exactly what you did...

The remote turn-on is (I think) for the power antenna and can be used for an amp as well, it's an output. You need your power switch to be the 'key on' or 'acc' wire.

How is your aftermarket headunit wired up if you can still plug in the stock radio?

that is what i was wondering....

do i need to move the wires around on my harness?

like u said should i match up the power switch to the acc wire and the remote will go to my amp.

is the power switch the only one that is different?

This should all be clear from the wiring on the harness adapter. At least on mine, all the wires were labelled appropriately and I just connected that to my aftermarket head, plus used the antenna lead for the amp signal. See my aftermarket head unit thread for all the details.
