im seeking help and advise on perfecting my android aftermarket head unit install. I say perfect because its currently installed but some electrical mods need to be made to stop it from draining my battery.
I have an android 2 din 7" aftermarket radio. its harness has the following power wires - black (ground) - yellow (12 v cons) - red ( 12v acc)
I purchased a harness that fits my car perfectly (when it comes to harness-harness fitting). this harness has the following power cables -yellow -black
this kit brought a separate red cable for ACC and it has tripped me out to the point im confused. I have no idea where to put this red cable.
I had to wire the ACC red cable from the head unit harness to the yellow providing power 100% of the time, ignition on or off. and that's where problem comes in. I believe this unit doesn't fully power off when I press the off button and its more of a sleep mode. I need to find a way to only provide power with the ignition ACC red wire.
ive heard; 1- run red wire to a relay on the engine bay fuse box 2- use add a fuse toengine bay fuse box (IDK which fuse to use) 3- run red cable to battery red with a 15amp fuse 4- run red cable to internal fuse box ( cant find it in my car)
im really lost here guys, is there a wire on the factory harness that provides power only which ignition on? maybe one of the speakers or any other wire that I can use to tap into. ive searched the web for wiring diagrams and haven't found any. ive joined several forums for help and nothing.
