My Ride: 2004 M3 Convertible
What color is Antenna Amp wire lead?

Trying to install a new system in my 2004 M3 convertible. The radio wire harness diagram I got does not have the Antenna Amp wire lead. I am sure the car has a antenna amp which needs to remote ON. Can someone help me? Does my car require remote ON for Antenna Amp from the radio or is it always on since the Antenna Amp also works with phone and BMW Assist connection?

here is the wiring pinout I got?

Radio Connector --

1 - yellow/red left front +
2 - blue red right front +
3 - yellow/black left rear +
4 - black (not used)
5 - violet/white 12 volt switched (HU power line)
6 - blue/black right rear +
7 - white / red Not Used
8 - brown/orange left front -
9 - red/green + terminal battery connection
10 - white Not Used
11 - brown/orange right front -
12 - brown/orange left rear -
13 - grey/red illumination
14 - brown/orange right rear -
15 - brown ground
16 - white remote amp turn on

Thanks for your help

Plain white wire. There are two - it is the one which is not twisted with a second wire (it is straight and alone).

According to your wiring codes, it is #16.

Check this wiring diagram for a HK system (courtesy of Pmmeke):



It seems to me that you need to tap into pin 10 on the amp connector (again, this is for a HK system) for the antenna turn on lead, if I understood you correctly.

Thank you. If I remove the factory HU and the factory amp I assume I probably should tap into PIN 10 in the amp harness.

If anyone disagrees with this please let me know.
