Bypass Remote Switch / Wire

I got a amp I would like to hookup in my rzr.
My problem is, the amp needs a remote switch to power up.
Well I'm not running a deck just a ipod. How can I by pass this remote switch so the amp will power up and play some tunes?
Please keep your answers simple. I'm not at all electrically talented. Hooking the speakers to the amp was tough enough! OK I'm not that bad but no far off.
Thanks Folks!

Re: Bypass Remote Switch / Wire

if you want it to turn on with the key, there is a keyed power wire under the dash (orange).
if you want it to turn on without the key, I think you have to put in a switch.

Re: Bypass Remote Switch / Wire

Thankyou Tuf-Skin.
I actually "bridged" from the Power connection to the switch connector. This worked but of course it keys the amp powered on the whole time it connected.
I'm going to try and figure out how to run 2 batteries and put in a switch for the stereo.
I would like to be able to run the stereo without the key on so the hour clock doesn't keep ticking.

Re: Bypass Remote Switch / Wire

to have the amp come on with the key you just need to connect the remote lead to a switched 12v source. the extra orange lead under the dash works great for this

then just run the primary power to the battery (with an inline fuse of course)

Re: Bypass Remote Switch / Wire

You need to add a switch that connects the amp to your battery with an inline fuse if you want to run your stereo with the key off.

Re: Bypass Remote Switch / Wire

Run the remote wire through a switch and then through a fuse to a power source i.e. the battery. Make sure you have a good ground close to the amp and run the main power wire straight to the battery. Make sure you have a fuse in the main power wire as close to the battery as possible to prevent nasty things happening if the wire shorts somewhere.

Re: Bypass Remote Switch / Wire

I haven't put an amp in my RZR yet. But, when I did my Rhino, I connected the remote wire to an illuminated marine rocker switch. It lights up when the amp is on, that way it reminds me to turn it off. Using the switch setup, I can listen to music without the key on.

Re: Bypass Remote Switch / Wire

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their help!
I got the stereo hooked up. Sounds pretty good to considering I didn't use high end equipment.
