Default Help installing subs on 2013 accord

I have read everyone's forums on disconnecting the ANC. It hasn't worked for me. I have bluetooth and cannot remove the harness completely and am unsure if there is a single wire for ANC. The color options I have are purple pink green and two white wires one is bigger than the other. I have tried cutting every wire and it seems that the one that cancels the ANC is also the hands free mic. I also have gone into diag and turned ANC off but as soon as I turn the key off it resets. Does anyone have solutions? Just trying to get my subs to work correctly

Here is the solution to disable ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) while retaining HandsFreeLink (HFL) for the 2013 Accords. Refer to Post #35.

The front is easy, just cut the larger white wire. The rear is a bit more challenging. Lower the back seat so you have more visibility. Pull the headliner down form the rear window and you will see the mic. Unplug with your hands or a screw driver if you cant reach. Your going to wrinkle the headliner a bit but it will go back to normal.

In the front pic below I noted which wire not to cut since I had to solder mine back together.

thanks. this is useful information.

So I've tried unplugging both mikes and turning ANC off manually/ (1,6, display and power then 1 twice) Still getting massive feedback when car is started or between 2-3k rpms. Works perfect when off with key on. Running speaker level inputs from rear. Wondering if there's a computer I can unplug... Alpine type R 12-Alpine MRV-m500 amp. 2013 accord sport sedan 6 spd manual. Any Ideas?? maybe a bass processor?

it could be alternator wine. normally it is a higher pitch thing but it can cause noise in the sub. if that is the case you could have introduced a ground loop. those are fun. it could be anywhere in the system. start by checking the grounds.

i agree it sounds like an alternator whine, especially if it changes pitch with engine RPM. did you use a LOC or did you use high-level inputs on the amp? if a LOC, which one?
