Guys,

I have searched for the this in the thread but cant find it.. I am installing a new Alpine amp and it has a remote turn on. I installed one of Mike's looms and ran the blue wire to it but it doesn't turn the amp on. If i touch the blue wire to a red (hot) lead it powers up. What gives? Is the Blue lead on the head unit 12v ignition or not?

Nevermind...

Looks like I found it. This was from another thread. Thanks Gary.

I just completed my amp install and I can now officially declare that it is indeed the white wire (#13 antenna).

PS, the Cooper is the most indirect install I have ever performed. I admit that the car is tight, but jeez. You have to take off every thing but the piece you are looking to replace before you can get where you really need to be. It's a round-a-bout hell. And I will have to do it all over again when I replace and install an amp for my mids. Yuck!
