Default need help finding a remote wire

i want to hook up some subs in my 03 ssei but i cant find a remote wire anywhere. i am going to leave my stock hu in and everything else but i am going to hook up a amp for some subs but i cant find a wire to hook up for the remote. anyone have any ideas and what wire i could tap into. i found a wire in the fuse box under the back seat that has power when the key is on but it doesnt stay on when you turn the car off while the radio keeps playing until the door is opened. any help would be appreciated

you could just run a constant +12 volt wire from the fuse box and put a switch to cut the power (downside with that is you have to turn the switch on and off every time you get in and out of your car which kind of sucks but if all else fails)

like every other 2000+ install

get the remote from the rear lighter wire.

There is a small hole in the hump that will pass
a wire from the fuse box under the rear seat
to the rear console and then to the lighter feed.

Have to set the fuse in the fuse box to shut
off (see manual) and the power reamains for
around 5 minutes after the key is off. I use this
line for the fans that try to cool the amplifiers.

When you switch to a better HU you'll use that
remote wire - so the amps will die with the HU.
So with that in mind you'll have power on the
amp even if the radio is off.

Best of luck
