Need to locate 4 wires for audio install
I am trying to instal the Omnifi DMP1 in my Accord Coupe EX-V6 w Navi and I cannont locate two wires that I need. The manual for the device says I need to splice the following wires into the car somehow:
BLACK Chassis Ground
RED Ignition Switched +12V DC
YELLOW Battery +12V DC
Since I don't have and can't find a service manual, I need some help. I'm guessing I can attach the RED and BLACK to one of the accessory power outlets, but I am at a loss for what to do with the other two.
Here is the excerpt from the DMP1's manual:
2. Connect the BLACK wire to chassis ground. Prepare the chassis ground by scraping any paint from the metal surface and thoroughly clean the area of all dirt and grease. Strip the end of the wire and attach a ring connector. Fasten the wire to the chassis using a non-anodized screw and star washer.
3. Connect the RED wire (Ignition) to a source of switched +12V (is on only when ignition key is in “accessory” or “run” position).The switched signal is usually taken from the ACC (accessory) position of the ignition. If the vehicle does not have an ACC position, connect the wire to the switched ON position of the ignition.
4. Connect the YELLOW wire to a source of constant +12V (for retaining memory on user programmed functions).The source should always have +12V, even when the ignition is off and the car is not running. The current consumption through this wire is negligible.
5. Connect the ORANGE wire to the lighting switch terminal. This will dim the main display when the headlights are turned on.
