I'm currently installing a remote start in my 2010 Honda CRV LX. My instructions tell me to connect my 12-pin white wire to the (+) Parking Light Wire which should be red, and located above the interior fuse box. I found this thread where someone mentioned it should be in a blue plug but I don't have the plug. Another thread, here, says it should be in a blue plug in the driver kick panel but I don't have any blue plugs in there either.
My instructions, which are supposed to be specific to my vehicle, say it is a red wire by the fuse box. Any idea which red wire?

Its probably easier to access the negative parking light wire and its located at the headlight switch which is in a WHITE/ black plug @ the headlight switch and the wire color is blue. What kind of remote starter and bypass module are you using ? Maybe we can help you with the connections .

I do have a multimeter, but I'm not sure how I would use it to find out. The instruction book says to use the Ohms setting to test and I am looking for a (+) wire, but I have a couple of questions about that.
This says it is the parking light wire. What are parking lights? Just the auto lights that are always on? I obviously know headlights, reverse lights, brake lights, but how do I turn on parking lights to test the circuit?
Then, once I figure out which ones are parking lights, do I push the red or the black cable into the wire to test and does the other wire go to any ground or something else? If I am measuring resistance, how do I know if it is positive or negative? Will the multimeter actually show me positive and negative or is it more like, when the parking lights are on, the wire is hot meaning it is positive?
Sorry for all the questions. I've been learning a lot of my own car repair and have done pretty well, but the electrical system is completely foreign to me.

@triniforever, I am installing an RS1-G5 by CrimeStoppers with a Honda-SL3 bypass module.
The company I bought it from, MyPushCart.com, sent me a wiring chart and tip sheet that I have been following. There is the relevant wiring portion:

So while it shows me the color and approximate location of the wires, I still have to guess on my own. So far, from images 3 and 4, I have been able to locate with fairly high certainty and connected the 12-pin harness except for Gray and White and all 3 of the 8-pin harness wires. It was getting late so I was gonna tackle the 6-pin harness tomorrow.

I believe the wires listed from the company are the minimum to get the starter working. There are additional features possible such as using the remote to pop the trunk or unlock the doors but they aren't listed in the instructions. If I get the remote start working, then I will worry about the side features.
Thanks for any help you can give!

Use the CR-V's (-) Parking Light wire as Trini suggested.  Connect the RS1-G5's RED / Black wire to Chassis Ground

and then the White Parking Light wire is a (-) output.  Connect the White wire to the CR-V's (-) Parking Light wire which
is Blue at the headlight switch ( WHITE/ black 12 pin plug, pin 11 ).

As for DMM usage :

To look for a (+) wire, set the DMM to 20V DC, connect the Black test lead to Chassis Ground and the Red test lead to the

suspect wire.  You will see ~12V DC when the signal is present.

To look for a (-) signal wire, set the DMM to 20V DC, connect the Red test lead to +12V constant and the Black test lead to

the suspect wire.  You will see ~12V DC when the signal is present.

Soldering is fun!

So if I use the Parking Light (-), I would have to move the RED / Black to a ground? Right now, I have it connected to the constant 12V on the 6-pin harness and the black wire is my ground.
