Default Please help !!!

I just bought a pioneer gm-2000A.
Its in lets say mint condition on the inside.
All pieces made in japan.Tranzistors, etc.
Problem is that I don`t have a remote option.
I hooked it up to the car, it starts, it gets power, but it doesent play.
What can I do to start it?How can I by-pass the rem function or how do I connect it ???

I`m sorry if I posted in the wrong forum thread .
I`m new and this is my first post.

Best regards !

What do you mean by "I don`t have a remote option"?

Either tap the power antenna lead on the radio or install a single pole toggle switch between the b+ and the rem terminal on the amp. Just don't forget to turn it off or the amp will kill your battery. Another option if you don't have a rem lead or power antenna lead on your radio is to run the rem lead to the power wire on the radio so the ignition key will turn the amp on and off. This will at least make it so you don't kill your battery by leaving a switch on by accident.

I found service data for the Pioneer GM-2000. It shows a "B3" blue wire remote connection. I wouldn't expect a great difference with a 2000A model. See how well it matches what you have. Though there are a few "it has no remote" help questions that show up in Google for these amps.

i don`t have the rem function on the amp (as far as i can tell).I tried it on my car, but got signal for it from my phone (music etc).
the amp powers up, but no music played in speakers.

Looked on the manual just provided.

found on page 9 something good.
my question is this :

i realize that I have to go and bridged pin 3 (blue) with +12 v.
But what do I do with the red wire?
Do I need to connect that too or is thhis spec only for GM-2000 and not 2000-A

That's what I was hoping you'd tell us.
If it doesn't already have a remote switch connection, you have extra install work. Therefore it's worthwhile to open it up and compare your board with the layout shown in the docs. If it's similar enough, the questions are more easily answered. Maybe it had a previous mod?

its opened.
fac is that it is a standard board.it is been used as default(minor switches) for gm-1000, gm-2000 and another amp.

as I can tell by looking at it and by studying the manual, and other pics on the internet (all amps gm-2000A found on the internet have 2 cables comming out) that would be the right thing to do.

I wanna ask someone befor i do it so that I might not fry it .(Heaven NO ) )

I attached a photo.From what i can tell by looking at the board and the manual I repet myself.they kind`a look a like.

p.s.

the board is fliped upside down to be like in the manual.In the manual you see its "Belly".Not the frond as I show it in the picture

You need to apply 12v to the two center pins of that 4-pin connector. You need to insert a 3-5 amp fuse in the wire between the 12v source and the connector that you use to connect to those two pins in case you accidentally short to the case of the amp when making the connection (I'm assuming that you don't have the original connector).

no.I don`t have the original connector.

Please corect me if I`m wrong in the picture i just made and attached.

p.s. can I find a "standard" socket fuse so that it may be more easy to connect it?or do I simply connect it to the wire (i don`t know the word but i`m trying to say that i will "glue" it with fludor.(i think)
