Look at the pic here:


You can see the extra wiring from both the head unit and the car. The orange and blue wires you see on the car side, I didn't use. Orange is for the dimmer if I recall correctly. As for the blue? Might be for a remote antenna hookup, but our cars never had those, so not positive. You don't need those two, in any case.

The black connector was for the Pioneer HU that the car currently has, and the blue wire with the white strip is my REMOTE feed. I connected a wire to that to run to my amp for remote control of power to the amp. Does this help?
