What color wire from Toyota powers up the original amplifier
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.

this depends on Unit & Wiring Adapter

Typically you will have a BLUE or BLUE / WHITE wire on the Unit & Wiring Adapter
Be sure those are connected

sorry.....you have NOT provided me with the Brand & Model Number of the Unit or Wiring Adapter..........
IF you DO NOT have a BLUE wire at the Unit or Wiring Adapter & only have BLUE / WHITE wire on both, connect them together........
IF you have BLUE / WHITE only on the Unit & BLUE on the Wiring Adapter.....connect them together

Plug kit is a metra 70-8112 and radio is a Ezonetronics BX31060000-F01
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.

You need Voltage + going to the BLUE / WHITE wire of the 8112, which should come from the Unit
IF the Unit does NOT have a BLUE or BLUE / WHITE wire, then connect the 8112 to the Ignition Switch wire of the Unit
