I have a 2001 DTS and i need to install a remote wire for my amp. i have the stock HU and i wanna hook the wire up to a fuse in the back seat fuse box. i cant seem to find a switched fuse tho, even the ones that should turn off like factory amp fuse and cigarette lighter fuse power my amp when the car is off. please help...im only 1 step away from enjoying my system!

You could take into the antenna in the dts it will control the remote wire so when the radio is on the amp will be on . Or u can use ur ac fuse. But I recommend using the antenna wire from your radios harness

Its the IGN fuse #12 on my STS. Make sure you DONT insert the remote wire on HOT side of the fuse. Insert your remote wire on the side closest to the passenger side of the car and your amp will only turn on with your key in the on pos. Heres a pic of a fellow forum members install:
