12+ Volt Stock Car radio

I have been searching for 6 hours for answers, including pulling the center console off and radio out.

I am planning on installing my Sirius radio to mount above the center air-vents on the dash.

I am needing a 12 volt power source for the radio.

Looking at the wiring harnesses, http://www.installdr.com/Harnesses/DCP-Wiring.pdf
Location: Black Harness
Position: Wire G
Purpose: Power Antenna/Amp
Color: White

Looks like a great place to take power from to me, however wire G is connected and goes into the harness and wrapped in the other cables. Not White either, Green with a Red tracer.

Can someone tell me where the other end is, where does it go? Can I cut and remove from the other wires and use for power?

Also, is it correct to assume this wire is powered from the strereo to where it goes? What would it power now?


This head-unit

Humm... thats 2 or 3 sources now, none of the same color combo for that wire, oh well
Its 12+ when radio is on, 0 when off.

Pulling the entire harness, radio stays on but loses sound (all but the negitives for 2 speakers are on that harness, plus this 'mystery' wire. So so far, I'm thinking its not needed for something obvious.

Would still like to know where it goes, before I cut it... humm....

That is a trigger wire out of the head unit to signal the power antenna or amplifier to turn on. Tap into this wire and put relay in place. When the head unit turns on it will apply 12v to this wire and close your relay (and continue on to where ever it goes in the car, don't cut it, splice into it). Then, run a fresh constant 12v source to the relay's contacts, and then the sirius radio to the other end of the relay.

I wasn't going to run a fresh 12v supply line, and add a relay when all I needed was 0.5 amps of power.

That wire, runs to the relay used for the power antenna, even if there is no power antenna, follows back to the trunk where the power antenna would be.

I spliced into it, and hooked my radio up, reason I didn't cut it, if I need power in my trunk for something else in the future, the wires are there. Move the trigger wire to the accessory power line, will save me running new wires to the trunk in the future.

Take power from the Red/White Switched 12v+ by T-ing into it, then ground via the black wire.
