Trace the yellow wire back to the fuse box located at the side kick panel under the dashboard and place a new wire to replace the " short" wire. The clock wire may share the same wire for your radio. You can confirm this by looking at the label at the fuse box either located at the side kick panel as mentioned before or inside engine compartment, under the hood.

MY 2006 HONDA ACCORD KEEPS BLOWING THE RADIO FUSE


There's either a short in your radio or something is grounding out the circuit. To narrow down the problem, remove the radio and disconnect the plugs in the back of it. If the fuse blows while it's unplugged, you have a short somewhere else in the wiring. If it doesn't blow the fuse, your radio is the problem.

I'm trying hook up an aftermarket car stereo and i cant figure out where to hook the orange and orange/orange and white wire. I need the factory wire diagram


http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii320/RonJ_HCF/picture_2980.jpg

The picture says it is for 1999-2000 models, but also works for 1998.

Honda does not have orange wires, i checked a Pioneer and it doesn't either. Could it be that the yellow wires look orangeish?

Be careful, because many aftermarket units have 3 power wires: Unswitched (memory cable), switched (power cable) and dimmed (match the dashboard illumination intensity). Also, most aftermarket units have a power out, to activate the power antenna. Connecting this cable in the wrong position will probably lead to a serious short.

Passenger tail light does not work on 91 corolla wagon but the brake light does ?? put new bulb in and checked the fuse but both are good


Either there is a bad ground (wire) for that bulb or the positive wire is shorting to ground somewhere before reaching the socket. Check connectors/sockets for corrosion as well. It's common at tail light fixtures.

Gauge cluster lights won;t light - replaced cluster, dimmer switch - did put new stereo in car? Fuses, bulbs all good. What could be the problem?


When you put the stereo in, what did you do with the red wire with a green stripe? The aftermarket radios don't always use these, so you have to wrap the ends, depending on whether or not you used a wiring harness. If that wire is shorted on the chassis, it will blow the dimmer fuse.

I have a '81 280zx NA. When I turn the car off the dash door, brake, fuel, and clock lights don't turn off. The car was hacked by the previous owner. I've made attempts to correct many of the mistakes...


jonj1138: BINGO! I believe you have probably hit on the correct source of the problem. Who ever installed the radio, probably looked for the wire which supplied power when the lights were on which should be the red wire with the blue tracer. They have somehow tied the unswitched circuit into the lighting circuit. They may have even picked off of the the cigarette lighter.Then they tied it into an Unswitched power source, not thinking of the feedback.
Unswitched power sources: a red with a white tracer and a red with a black tracer. I believe I have the correct colors It's been years since I have worked in a ZX ans I don't have a SCHEMATIC handy. I am doing this from memory. There may be two wire connected to the Unswitched power supply. From your stereo, you will have a Yellow wire. This is the Memory wire. Leave it hooked up to the Unswitched power supply. The other wire needs to be disconnected and if it was hooked up to light the for the radio, hook it up to the red with blue tracer. That will be the switched circuit for the lighting.

I hope that this will solve your problem. Good Luck!

Radio shuts off


yes there is a fuse in the fuse panel drivers side up where the dash meets the door panel. sounds like you have a bad connection in either the red wire(switched +12 volt) going to the stereo or the yellow wire (unswitched +12 volt) or in the ground wire which is black it need a good constant connection on all three to operate correctly. you can temporarily try running a wire directly to the battery and hooking yellow and red wires to the + and the black to the - and see if the problem goes away if it does you have a wire that is losing its connection somewhere in your car
