I​ have been reading over this question and I am still not sure what "trigger wire" you are talking about here. Please explain further which system or appliance this is in reference to and I can assist you further. Attach a photo to your post if you can as that should be helpful here. I have an RV repair shop and work on these all the time. If this is a Smartphone question it may be in the wrong section.

The product is a Jensen AWM 970. It is mounted in a RV as the audio video device. It will not power on so I removed it from its mount to check the in line fuse a 10 amp in the 12 volt power line. The fuse is ok, but
i didn't want to open the device until I could identify what appeared to be a broken wire in the back. The wire has a label on saying " 12 v + trigger wire" My question was what is the purpose of this wire and where is it supposed to be connected.
Since my problem is no power on and I have a loose unattached 12 volt ( labelled) wire I assumed it was pertinent.

I really can't say for certain. I will go ahead and opt out of this and allow another tech to offer something for you. Not sure when that might be as they come and go all day. I suspect that this might have been better in the Electronics section.

If you are certified on this device the answer should be simple. If after the basic answer I need further assistance then I
would consider further paid assistance. The basic answer shouln't cost an extra $26.00 !!!!

sorry for the delay...........
" 12 v + trigger wire" is used to power other components like an Amplifier, Antenna, etc.
Typically a PINK wire

It is "12 Volts DC (+) Output" with Unit ON
IF you do NOT have Voltage (+) Input, you need to test for Voltage (+) DC on the YELLOW & RED wires of the AWM 970
Test Ground (-) on the BLACK wire
