Wiring an amo to stock radio!

I've wired plenty of Amps and subs to aftermarket radios, it's no big deal at all, but today I went to work on a dudes cherokee, and i ran into a problem with where to connect the Rem wire, any suggestions, need help ASAP!

Patch into the remote wire for the head unit. There's a sticky with the color codes of the wires.

Thanks man! Didn't know there was a sticky for that, and I didn't want to make any guesses!

The remote wire is the trigger for an amplifier.

If there is a factory amp, you will need to find out which wire is the amp's trigger. On my '04 Wrangler, it is a 20 gauge wire and the FSM calls it "Radio 12V Output". If he has an aftermarket amp, you would connect it to the amp's 12V + (usually labeled remote or REM +) trigger input terminal, next to the 12V + power input.

If there is no amp, you don't use the wire. Before buttoning everything up, make sure it works & that there is no exposed wire (cut clean & tape off) to cause a short.

Hahah, your fine man, so I was right about using the 12v switched wire or whatever that second one is?

Does the Cherokee have a 2 plug (grey & black) 7 wire (each plug) connection? If so, it looks like you can use the antenna (black plug, position G) trigger wire.
