No power to radio


You could start by checking all fuses. If you bought an aftermarket radio and a harness, the yellow wire should be hot at all times.. The red wire gets power with the key. Use test equipment to see if these wires are getting what they are supposed to. If not, you will need to figure out why. It can be difficult to trace wires back because they are wrapped in a harness at the factory. Worse comes to worse, run a new wire to replace a non working one.

I have a 1990 Celica, trying to put in new radio. Got everything wired up correctly, Constant - blue/yellow, acc - gray, ground - brown and it won't come on. Radio fuse (top center 15 amp) is good,...


You have it right. Use a 12 volt test light to see if there is power between the gray and brown wires when the key is on. If there is power there, you may have got hold of a bad radio.

Which is the fuse for radio in toyota celica vvti


There are 2 fuses for the stereo. One is constant power and the other is switched by the ignition but they both show constant power at the fuse. Seems odd but thats what I got. One is located in slot 24 with a 15 amp fuse. It's the 6th one to the right on the top row. The other is located in the fuse box under the hood. It is the second to last fuse in the bottom row. It should have a 25 amp fuse. If you are using an after market stereo, you should also have a fuse on one or both your red and yellow wires and usually one on the back of the unit.

Need to know the wires to install a deck for 97


Red is power to from ignition to cd deck
Yellow is direct power from battery to cd deck to hold the memory.
Black is ground
Blue is only needed if you are hooking up an amplifier.
I always suggest buying a wire harness quick connect system for $5, then you won't have to cut origional car wiring. If by chance you are taking the original wire route, then go to installer.com to find which wires on the car are for what.

I'm having trouble installing a radio in my 1992 toyota celica


go to any auto parts store and ask for a 12 volt test light, it has a bulb inside and a pointed end like an ice pick, u attach one end to a good ground and then probe wires for power, when u have a hot wire with 12 volts the light in the handle will shine on. They cost about $6.00 at Kragen I think.
