It burnt up because too many volts were traveling through a wire that could not handle it. Always fuse your power wire and your remote power wire (if it's not tapped into the harness).

If you're using an aftermarket stereo, you can just tap into the blue/white wire in the harness.

If not, you can just tap into the positive wire on the cigarette lighter.

Fuse your remote power wire with an inline fuse holder and 3 amp fuse. You can get them for a few bucks at Autozone.

Yup, any wire 22 gauge or larger (20, 18, 16 gauge) will be fine.

Re: where does the remote wire go?
