The power wire is always red so check that out. N if u dont have ground, look for a simple metal surface that u can put the black wire to cuz thats ur ground. N as for no power check your fuses u might have touch to wire together that made a spark.

The easiest way to hook up a new stereo is to run your own power and ground. hook the harness back up the way it was. put all colors with the matching color that you cut. take your door panels off and see what color the speaker wires are. cut those wires away from rhetorically original harness and wire them to your new stereo. then you only have the power and ground wires to worry about and all of your lights and power accessories will still work. you can ground to anything metal that is part of the body or frame of the truck. Find s screw or bolt and loosen it. scrape any paint away so you have a good connection. put your wire under the bolt and tighten it back down. your power wires take 2 power sources to work properly. one is strait to the + on your battery. this allows touch to store memory like presets. the other can be tied ro a fuse in tour fusebox. this allows the stereo to be turned off when you turn the truck off so i always use the fuse for the original radio. pull the fuse and wrap the power wire around one of the metal legs of the fuse and put it back in its slot. You are done. tour can also tie both power wires together and run strait to the battery if you don't mind turning tour stereo off by hand everytime but don't forget or you will run your battery down.

SOURCE: some days a go i was trying to fix a check engine

If you are sure that the ignition was turned on when you were trying to read the codes, you may have a bad computer in the Cherokee. I would try another code reader before getting too worried though.

Have 1995 dodge dakota 3.9 wont start


yup, the check engine light should come on for a bulb check. If it does not than the PCM is either not getting all the power/grounds it needs or it is bad.

if you reply to this in the comments below i can get you a lot more info on how to proceed further. you will need a volt meter and a test light and understand how to use them.

I unpacked the bundle carefuly and sure enough the were two or three wires all coroded, had wite powder from corosion. repaired the connections and bingo. I posted details at dodgeforums.com. browse around there. I posted pictures as well. this is a common problem.
