you need to make a t harness as you need to plug in the stock radio so the havac will light up and so you can set the stock clock

harness for the stock radio
Honda / Acura car radio harness plugs into the factory radio - Radio Wire Harness 71-1721 METRA
only wire the red, yellow, black, and orange wire for the harness going to the stock radio the rest you dont wire up

harness to plug in to the car radio harness
Honda and Acura Into Car Wire Harness - for installing a new car stereo into this car 70-1721 METRA
so this harness you wire to the head unit harness colour for colour plus the 4 wire's from the harness to the stock radio colour for colour

you will have made a t harness plug it all in and your done

Also dont forget to connect the REMOTE blue wire with the ILLUMINATION orange wire or your amp wont power on and you wont have any sound coming out :)
Idk if you’ll answer by now but will the blue wire just cause no audio to sound or the whole headunit wont turn on? i finished connecting mine and it powers on but no sound
