    I tried connecting the acc wire when installing a Pioneer P3100 headunit on my 2006 Impala but the harness doesn’t come with it. So I tried running the wire to my fuse box and had it on the AUX and it would just stay on and wont turn off. Is there a specific fuse or different way that i can connect the acc wire thanks.

    Luis, it sounds like you hooked up your accessory wire to a constant source. Try searching for a different source for your switched wire. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    Where do i hook up the remote wire from the amp? Is it the Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire? I’m not sure. Thanks

  • Reply ModifiedLife June 29, 2009 at 4:29 pm

    Tony, the remote wire from the amp should be hooked up to the car stereo amp trigger wire. Hope this helps. Good luck with your car amplifier install.

    Another question. I’m running a stock headunit. where do i hook up the line out converter to?

  • Reply ModifiedLife July 7, 2009 at 1:09 am

    Tony, use one of the rear right or rear light speaker output wires for an audio source for your line out converter. Hope this helps. Good luck with your car amplifier install.

    Anthony, make sure you have your radio switched power wire is hooked up to a switched power source. Otherwise, the radio will not turn on. Hope this helps. Good luck with your radio install.

    does the 06 impala stock stereo have the RCA hook ups? and how do u remove the stereo?

  • Reply ModifiedLife March 8, 2010 at 1:51 pm

    Gordo, most late model vehicles do not have rca outputs on the factory radio to feed an audio signal to your aftermarket amplifier. You would have to install a line out converter to supply an audio output. Here is the Line-Out Converter you need:

    Scosche 2-Channel Speaker to RCA Line Out Converter

    When splicing in the RCA Line Out Converter, tap your factory rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. We suggest you invest in some solid wire taps that wont come loose. These wire tap connectors will allow you to tap into wires without cutting and installs in seconds by hand with no crimping or tools required. You must run the power to the battery. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your 2006 Chevrolet Impala to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Is There anything that i can do to get them out? or somewhere where it wont cost an arm n a leg ? It says loading/ unloading then it says disc error. Please help. It might be some cd’s in there too :(

  • Reply ModifiedLife September 20, 2010 at 11:21 pm

    Precious, unfortunately you are going to have to take your car stereo to a qualified car stereo repair shop and ask them to repair your car stereo. They should be able to get your CD’s out also. Hope this helps. Good luck on your 2006 Chevrolet Impala stereo repair.

    i want to hook a subwoofer to a factory 2006 Chevrolet impala stereo,how do i go about doing that?

  • Reply ModifiedLife January 10, 2011 at 9:59 pm

    Justin, yes you can add a subwoofer to your factory 2006 Chevrolet Impala radio. You would need five components:

    1. Car Subwoofer
    2. Car Subwoofer Box to house your car subwoofer.
    3. Car Audio Amplifier that matches your subwoofer power needs and ohm rating.
    4. Car Amplifier Wiring Kit that can handle the power needs of your amplifier.
    5. RCA Line Out Converter to feed an audio signal from your factory radio to your aftermarket amplifier.

    First run all your amplifier power from your car battery to where you plan on mounting your amplifier. Next, run your ground wire from your grounding point to your amplifier. Wire up the RCA Line Out Converter to the rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. Next, connect one end of your RCA jacks to the Line Out Converter and the other end of the RCA jacks to your amplifier. This will provide an audio signal to your after market amp. Lastly, connect your subwoofer to your after market amplifier using the speaker wire in the amplifier wiring kit. If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2006 Chevrolet Impala amplifier and subwoofer installation.

    Ok, I tried to put my remote wire to the pink wire but when I open my door it comes on and stays on then goes off. how would I make it stay off till I turn the radio on? Thank You.

    I somewhat successfully installed my new Kenwood head unit, and now I was planning on installing my subs. The one problem I ran in to was that I was unable to find any place to run the power cable from under the hood to the inside of my car. If there is and easy way of doing this, any suggestions are welcome.

  • Reply ModifiedLife March 2, 2011 at 1:38 am

    Mitch, most vehicles have a factory hole with a rubber or plastic grommet at the firewall. This is usually the standard place to run a power wire through the firewall. If one of these holes are not available or not large enough, a hole will have to be drilled to accommodate your power wire. Choose something on the engine side of the firewall as reference and try to match it up on the interior side of the firewall. This will make sure you do not drill through anything important. Then drill a hole somewhere near or beside your reference point. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2006 Chevrolet Impala amplifier installation.

    I am looking to put a system in my car. I have everything I need, including the Output converter. Should I hook them up to the rear speakers? Or front? When I do this, will I loose the speakers for sound? And when I do connect the output converter wires to the rear speaker wires, do I connect then both and thats it? Or do I twist them both and put it in the radio wiring unit? And what wire would I have to connect the Remote wire of the aftermarket amplifier, of the stock head unit in order for the only way for me to turn on the system is to have the radio powered on by the big button in the center? If I need to go in more detail I will.

  • Reply David April 25, 2011 at 9:10 am

    There are two pink wires. Are the Amp Trigger Wire & the Antenna Wire distinguished at all?

  • Reply ModifiedLife April 25, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Justin, when splicing in the RCA Line Out Converter, tap your factory rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. We suggest you invest in some solid wire taps that wont come loose. These wire tap connectors will allow you to tap into wires without cutting and installs in seconds by hand with no crimping or tools required. If you install a line out converter, your rear speakers will still work properly. Tap the pink wire in the your 2006 Chevrolet Impala factory stereo wire harness as your amplifier turn-on wire.

    I have a 2006 impala and had a sound system installed, the radio works when the car is running but doesn’t turn on when the ignition is turned to the first click. I was wondering if there is a certain fuse to check, or if I pull out the head unit what wires do i check for corrections? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a 2006 chevy impala and my factory stereo just decided to stop working one day. I changed the fuse and that didnt work so what could it be?

  • Reply ModifiedLife September 30, 2011 at 1:42 am

    Mark, double check ALL your fuses using an Automotive Fuse Tester because certain vehicles may have a wire tied into another circuit not labeled as car radio. You may have additional fuse boxes by the driver side of the dash, passenger side of the dash, driver kick panel, passenger kick panel, under the steering column or under the hood. If all of your fuses are good, your 2006 Chevrolet Impala factory radio may be faulty. We suggest you take your car to an experienced audio installer and have them troubleshoot your problem. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2006 Chevrolet Impala radio troubleshooting.

    I recently installed an aftermarket double din stereo in my 06 impala ss. The new stereo that I bought came with the oem compatable harness to retain the steering wheel controls. The problem I have is that the directions don’t explain what color codes the wires are to tap into on my vehicles harness for the steering wheel controls. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    Where do i connect my 2007 chevrolet impala remote wire? I can’t find the wire so that the amp shuts off with the car. thanks.

  • Reply ModifiedLife March 19, 2012 at 8:25 pm

    Johnny, technically you could connect your 2007 Chevrolet Impala amp turn on wire to the radio switched 12v+ wire. That way your amplifier is on whenever your 2007 Chevrolet Impala is on and off whenever your 2007 Chevrolet Impala is off. Just make sure to run an in-line fuse holder with a 1-amp fuse on the amp turn on wire. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2007 Chevrolet Impala amplifier install.
