      I am having an issue with my stereo install. So far I have installed everything fine, however I need to find a remote turn on source. If I jump from +12v power supply to the "remote turn on" on my amplifier everything works fine , however obviously this can't work because the amplifier would always be on and its simply dangerous.

      Does anyone know where I can tap into a remote turn on that only comes on with the car or factory headunit?

      Sounds like you used an LOC to add an amp and I'm assuming a sub. PAC makes a great LOC that provides what you're looking for, however you still have an option for your remote turn on. Purchase yourself an "Add a Circuit" from a place like AutoZone, purchase a 10amp fuse to use with the tap. Plug the "Add a Circuit" in location 41 of the fuse box (driver's side of the dash) and there you have it, you can then wire your remote wire to this tap.

      Well, the thing is I used the PAC LOC that is supposed to have its own remote turn on, but it only measures something like ~5v IIRC on my multimeter. My amplifier wont turn on with that little amount of voltage, only if I jump the 12v will it turn on, I tried another amp as well with same results. I know the LOC is working because I am getting audio signals through, just the remote turn on voltage from the blue wire (according to the wiring diagram) is to little to trigger amp turn on

      Hmm I did not know the fuse box was on the driver side dash, I will try your suggestion

      I just used slot 41 like Marble suggested. However I was not able to use the "add-a-line" from Advanced Auto as it was to large to put the fuse panel back on, so I simply wrapped the wire around one end of the fuse prongs. I know it's ghetto, but if it shorts out it will still blow the fuse...

      Odd that the remote turn on isn't working correctly. I have installed the SOEM-T in a MKVI GTI without issue. Where are you getting the 12V signal to power the SOEM-T? I used an "Add A Circuit" for that install which allows the remote turn on to properly kick the amp on.

      Sorry to hear that you are having clearance issues. The one brand I have used multiple times without issue.

      I have heard of others having the same issue though. I need to see what brand it is that I have used, even in my own MKVI at one time, and post up.

      That is covered under the CAN+ & CAN- terminals on the car.

      2 options on the car:
      a) S-contact in the steering column
      b) 75x terminal in the relay box

      I too am in the middle of wiring my stereo install into 2010 Golf TDI 2d.

      I used the diagram which looks similar to the one listed above, from modifiedlife.com however I found that the speaker wires colors were wrong for my doors. It looks like the left and right front door colors are reversed in the diagram.

      my RIGHT(passenger side) front had the BRN/Green and BRN/Blue instead of the LEFT front

      Anyone else? I swear I looked at it 10 times....

      The next stage of installation is to pull the signal from the radio speaker wires to the LOC. I am using an Audiocontrol LC6i, highs and sub amps, then connect the speakers. I ran the power wire down the driver side so planning to run the speaker wires on the passenger side to avoid engine whine.

      I noticed there is a 12volt outlet in the cargo area so I was planning to tap that as the remote in to signal the turn on. This will not be the 12v power supply. Anyone tried that yet instead of going the add a fuse route?
      Thanks

      Here's a write up that I did for an amp install. I have the speakers colors listed in there as well. These were found on 2-2012 GTi's

      I had this same problem as the installers used the ciggie lighter for the remote on wire. I was getting feedback through the sub when the head unit was turned off as the amp was still being powered. I simply added an in-line on/off switch on the splice wire they took off the ciggie lighter and problem solved Mount the switch wherever you like if you want it out of sight, just make sure its easily accessible of course.
