Question about 1993 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
Installed a new Pioneer DEH3000IB CD player in my 93 Olds Cutlass Ciera. Have double and triple checked wiring with diagrams. The Radio Illumination wire (Gray), the Antenna Trigger wire (Pink), and Radio Dimmer wire (Brown) have all been capped off and taped up. I have no amp, so the amp remote wire from the new stereo is capped off and taped up. All the others are correct as per the diagram. The stereo works like it should except when I turn the headlights on it blows the taillight/dash light fuse immediately. So then I tried a new fuse, plugged the radio back up leaving the factory antenna wire disconnected and it worked until I plugged the factory antenna wire into the back of the stereo with the headlights on. Does not happen when the antenna is not hooked up. I tried to ring the antenna to ground, no dice. Then I checked the antenna to see if it somehow had voltage on it, meter showed nothing. I keep suspecting something with the Illumination wire or the dimmer wire and now I suspect the antenna. I really am lost here. I hooked up a similar Pioneer Stereo and the same exact thing happens telling me it is not a faulty stereo. Other features of the car is: No Power Antenna, Has Electric Door Locks. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.
By the way you tell me that the radio illumination is the gray wire and all of the rest you are wrong. try the correct way red is key positive,yellow is constant power,black is ground,orange is illumination,blue is remote,gray is right front positive and gray black is negative,white is left front positive and white black is negative,green is left rear positive and green black is negative,violet is Right rear positive and violet black is negative,
