Default Radio wiring advice

Okay so im finally getting around to replacing my head unit, everything going good fairly simple process, but i have a question.

There is a blue wire for the new connector, its for "power antenna/amp turn on", but there is no blue wire on my 2005 saturn vues connector.

Also, what is the gold strap that was on the back of my factory head unit, and where does it go now?

Thanks.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The blue wire is not used. On a vehicle with a power antenna or auxiliary amp, this wire would be used.

As to a gold strap, my '07 didn't have one. I'd assume it's a ground strap for the radio. You could attach it with a small screw to the side of the new head unit, which should have several screw holes that you won't be using. They are there for different mounting styles. Your head unit probably came with an assortment of screws. This is assuming the strap is long enough to reach. Other than that, it probably won't matter if you leave it off.

Left the gold strap off. New heas unit working very well, i am happy.

Purchased a $21 radio/bluetooth head unit and a $13 mounting kit from Wal-Mart. The mounting kit i think was un needed, as i could of used the one on the original head unit, but I used it regardless.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
