Default remote turn on wire

I plan on hooking up my amp and sub box this weekend...I need to know what color the remote turn on wire is out of the radio so I can splice into it and run it back to the amp.

Muchos Gracias Compadres!

If it is an aftermarket deck it is usually the blue wire. That'* what all of mine have ever been. If it'* factory deck, they probably made it some obscure color.

I know I was playing around in my trunk a while back and found the antenna power lead going into the antenna. It wasn't hard to find. There are only a few wires back there. I just had to find the one that was only powered on when the antenna was up.
