Alpine headunit problems...

I just installed it yesterday and apparently they dont make a plug for it frown so we had to hardwire it, bypass the factory amp, and blah blah blah. For the power we hooked it striaght up to the battery. Now when I turn off the car the stereo stays on. Im pretty sure that the problem is the fact that its hooked up to the battery directly. So now the issue is this, where is the best place to hook up the power so it turns off when I turn off the car?

they definately make a harness

the problem is that your red power wire off the alipine deck needs to be a switched 12v sourse (ignition) the yellow is memory and constant 12v

For a temporary fix, throw a switch in your power wire so you can turn it off...

I can turn it off, I just hold down the source button for three seconds. But its a pain in the ass to do it everytime. I'd like it just to go off with the rest of the car. any one know how to fix this? confused

best buy has the harness and so does everyone else look for a toyota wiring harness,

as for turning off the head unit find the ACC wire on ur car the one that only works when in acc or on and hook it up to the red wire on the alipine

GTS Premium Stereo - Wiring Codes
by SilverSurfer


Caps are main color followed by stripe.
HEAD UNIT
GRAY w/silver dots 12V ACC
BLUE w/yellow stripe 12V Constant
WHITE w/green dimmer
WHITE sig left front
YELLOW sig left rear
RED sig right front
BLUE sig right rear
GRAY/shrink sig shield (all)
(You could use the factory amp if your head unit is underpowered and has pre-amp outputs. I didn't try this.)

that is the one ur looking for hook up the red wire from ur HU to this wire and itll turn off when the key is out
