If you don't have one, buy yourself a $5.00 12volt test light, it will come in handy in situations like these, and many others. Can you not find 12volt constant in yoour old connection?

i had this problem to, do not hook the ground wire from truck to your radio. use the braided wire that hooked to your old factory radio by inserting a bolt into the braided wire and ground from your new radio.
then check fuses one more time and you are good to go.I didnt think this would work but it did..

SOURCE: Need Stereo Wiring Diagram

red/white is the battery 12volts
brown is ground
white/blue or gray/white is interior (dash) light
on the others get a volt ohm meter and check the resistant between each wire, to an the others if it moves then there maybe a speaker but keep checking because there could have two speakers using the some ground, if you are putting a high power radio in each speaker needs its own ground. the safety way is put new wires for the speakers.

It's probably fatter than the others and red in color, and most likely in one of the corners of the harness. Or you can buy a test light at an auto parts store and probe the different wires with the connector unplugged from the stereo.

Car stero won't power up...

Just a guess, but it sounds like you were looking for power on the wrong wire. What you measured sounds like the feed that keeps your radio presets from being lost. If I'm right, that wire would be hot at all times. Key on or off doesn't matter. All I can offer is keep looking for the fuse for it. See if your friend can find you a wiring diagram to figure out the radio wiring and what color wire is the power for the radio. If you have your owner's manual, that would show the fuse lay-out, and where the radio fuse is. Good luck.

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.

I put a new car stereo and system in my car. Now the parking lights won't turn off. Is this a security mode on the car? Or is it from the wiring? It is a 2006 Kia Spectra EX.

Usually the brown wire is for illumination. If you have supplied power to this wire some how it will keep these lights on. If you got wiring schematics with the stereo recheck your work.
