    Your new radio probably isn't suppling power to the amplifiers in the back of the car.

    You need to buy an adapter that fits in the aerial lead and injects 12V (from the antenna power output of your new radio) onto the aerial connection to power those amplifiers. IIRC Halfords et al sell them.

    Yes, connect it to the amplifier enable signal which comes out of the new radio.

    Have a look at the instructions that came with your new radio - they're all different so I can't tell you definitely which one it will be.

    On some radios that have the ISO connectors it's on pin A5 and labelled "auto antenna output".

    Its usually a blue or blue with white striped wire off the head unit wiring, but double check the manual to make sure.
