do you have any additional fuses connected to it? or is it straight connected to the battery?

I think the remote has to be hooked up or it stays on.

That is right. Make sure you also have a circuit breaker if you're running high wattage so you wont keep blowing fuses. And also have an inline fuse approx. 16" from the battery. Remote wire is like a power switch for the amplifier(its mandatory). If the headunit is off, the amps should be off. Gluck.

wire the remote to the blue wire on the headunit. that's for an aftermarket headunit. not sure about OEM.
