Basically my amp has auto sensing turn on, so initially I tested with that and seemed to work so I didn't bother looking into how to get a remote signal. Then I coded to hifi so speaker outs became line level, and the auto sensing just didn't work well at all. So I never tested using the connection from the headunit, I think I read it was for powering the antenna so I assumed it would work but I didn't want the hassle of taking the headunit out again so I tried this way using 30g terminal which seems to be just what I need, ideally it would turn off when locking the car rather than 30 mins after, but there doesn't seem to be a terminal that does that? I could code the time delay I imagine? But this is fine as it is really
