Heat shrinked for that extra anti-corrosion but looks good all I can say is make sure you give your self some room when wire tapping give a inch or two away from the connector just in case of future breakage and maybe using some sort of electrical lude to keep it from rusting.

It says this is for a non amplify radio I have the ex-l that could be just for the radio turn on and off. Maybe a grounded wire that switches it off and on just a guess. I am only using the lc2i to switch on and off my amp since it has a feature that turns on when it senses a signal. All you have to do is hook the remote to the amp and the ground and power wires to it as well.

No problem I am surprised nothing is on the web yet this car been out for so long now. Maybe I should post the rest of the connectors a lot of stuff running off the head unit.

It doesn’t mean anything; that part of the diagram is just telling you the color of the wire. The chart below listing the wire functions would indeed suggest that’s the right one to use.

I just installed sub amp. I'm using A21 to for the amp on/off. It can turn on the amp, but it can NOT turn off it. I checked the output of A21, it is always +12V after the vehicle is powered on. I expected it went 0 when I turned off the audio.

I'm still looking for which wire can be used to turn on/off external amp.

I would not expect the Amp to power down with "turning off" your music, as the audio system does a lot more than music. It also handles hands-free phone functions and ANC.

Thanks. That makes sense. I will build my own audio signal detector from front speaker output to turn on/off the amp.

Are you using a lc2? Or are you just going straight from wire. My lc2 is what turns my amp on and off it feels a signal from the speaker wires and automatically turns it on and off when I power on and off the radio. Also it converts the high frequency to low frequency which is important if you are adding a subwoofer.

No, I didn't use LC2. The amp has all features of IC2 except auto-sensing audio signal. I will add an audio signal detector, it cost ~$5.

With the audio system responsible for ANC, I would expect there will always be an audio signal getting delivered, unless you disable that system.
