I am installing my pioneer HU and trying to find out a detail before I do it before I frack something up.

Since I have some amps I should be using the (blue) remote from the Pioneer harness to my amps.

Now I know that if I did not have any amps I would plug the power antenna to the pioneer remote.

Now with that being said, is it safe to plug all 3 together (pioneer remote, power antenna and amp remote) or I should not and do something else?

Thanks

What power antenna? The Forte does not have a power antenna ?

Use the amp remote wire (blue) to power on your amplifier(s).

you seem pretty sure. If you look at the www.kiatechinfo.com
(Service info, Body electrical system, Audio, Antenna...)
and look the the antenna section.
In the drawing why would they show power, why would it use between 10.5V and 16V and in repair procedures they say -- 2. Disconnect the 1P power conector..... Then again they do not mention power antenna in the "Audio Unit" section.

Also when I got the Metra harnesses they said that the orange one with the only cable on it is for the power antenna. They could have been mixed up with something else.

Anybody else have an opinion?

Thanks

The antenna gets its power from the antenna jack.

There is no power antenna as in an electric one that would need to be wired to the blue/white or solid blue wire coming out of an aftermarket headunit.

There is something above the picture saying to do a continuity test... that's why they showed the multimeter... there is no voltage reading anywhere...
