You could try running the switched line (one connected to your cig lighter) to another 12v source. If you rluse unswitched power, install a switch on the line. My JK has two CIG adapters. One switched and one unswitched. Just a thought.

Are you getting +12V on the remote input? Have you tried temporarily running the remote to the positive side of the battery to confirm that's actually the problem?

the 12v power to the cig outlet should trigger the amp. double check that you actually have 12v to the amp on both the 12vbatt terminal and the 12v ant/remote terminal... check AT the amp first. work back to the sources if you dont have 12v

if you used a wire tap, its completely possible that the tap didnt contact the conductor.
