  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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. Thank you!

  4. I have a 2005 chevy impala and the factory head unit stopped working and I have a pioneer deh-3200ub head unit that I want to install. What do I need for this and will I lose any functions by doing this and if so is there a solution to it that won’t cost me alot of money? Thanks.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. i changed car battery and now my cd player will not play my cd’s . it say disc error and will not play. can anyone help?

  8. I installed an amplifier on my 2006 impala and I connected my remote wire to the pink,my question is why my amplifier never goes off ?

  9. 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.

  10. 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. 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 installation.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.
