E85 Z4 w/Business CD - Remote Lead for Amp

08-14-2007, 08:53 AM
Hi all

Hoping someone can tell me whether there is a suitable wire to tap into towards the rear of the car to use as a amp remote lead (e.g. behind the CD changer etc).

Additionally, I would be very grateful if someone could identify which wire can be used at the rear of the deck for the same purpose.

I have been searching like mad but can not find a consistent answer.

I wired mine in the fuse box to the vanity mirror light fuse. This way the amp only turns on when the car is on. If you listen to the radio with the car off, the amp will stay off and not drain the battery. You can wire it into any fuse that only comes on with the key in the accessory or running position.

Good thinking - thank you very much. I appreciate the response.
