This looks like a job for Superman or maybe you! Connect an alligator clip test wire to the chassis of the unit for a good ground. Get a 12 volt battery and hook the other end of this ground wire to its negative pole (-). Hook a second wire to the positive pole of the battery. Put that modular plug back in the unit making sure that all the wires coming out of it are separated. Then, trying the THICKER RED wires first touch each to the positive (+) wire from the battery. When the panel light of the unit is got it! The thinner wires are mostly for the speakers with black for negative an red for positive...the antenna is anybody's guess!

    So I got it to come on but the display doesn't say anything it is eloumanated but I can't get it to do anything.. I know it doesn't make much sense what I'm sayin.. Well it came on but it's like it's stuck on start up.. I can take a video for u if it will help.. I think one or two of the wires are wrong but I feel like that's why it won't respond but has still came on.. I appreciate ur help so far i have searched high and low for just something about this stereo. Although it was givin to me it's my first one with a screen and I would really like to be able to hook it in my aunts trailer so she can have something fancy ya know.. It's not much but I have 4 kids myself so extra money is something I don't know about.. But I can fix things so if u have any ideas they are welcome and I will take some pictures or a video whatever will help from this point.. Thank u

New batteries keep losing their charge, also when running sounds like it loses all power then in a split second it stays running

sounds like an over draw on system
computers need min 10.5 volts to stay alive (working) other wise they shut down
i would start by charging batteries fully and disconect from vehicle for 24 hr
then re check before hooking up if they staied charged batteries are good
then hook up bateries negatives then hook up a voltage meter to performed a parasedict
test other word in series to positive cable on wire and other to battery positive if draw is high
on meter start removing fuses on at a time until voltage on meter drops
you have know located source of draw that is killing batteries know diag that problem
ex . under hood light staies on........glove box stays on.......aftermarket stuff inproperly conected
good luck

I need to see how the starter is hooked up

Volvo 240/740/760/780/940/960 1990-1998 - Starter

The easiest way to test the performance of the starter is to perform a voltage drop test.
The battery must be in good condition and fully charged prior to performing this test.
  1. Connect a voltmeter between the positive and negative terminals of the battery.
  2. Turn the ignition key to the START position and note the voltage drop on the meter.
  3. If voltage drops below 11.5 volts, there is high resistance in the starting system.
  4. Check for proper connections at the battery and starter.
  5. Check the resistance of the battery cables and replace as necessary.
  6. If all other components in the system are functional, the starter may be faulty.

Many automotive parts stores have starter bench testers available for use by customers. A starter bench test is the most definitive way to determine the condition of your starter.

(see Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
  2. Disconnect the leads from the starter motor.
  3. Remove the starter motor retaining bolts.
  4. Remove the starter motor from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the starter motor to the flywheel housing.
  2. Apply locking compound to the bolt threads and install the retaining bolts finger-tight.
  3. Tighten the bolts to approximately 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
  4. Connect the starter motor leads and the negative battery cable.

Fig. 2: ... and remove the starter cables


Fig. 3: Unfasten the starter retaining bolts ...


Fig. 4: ... and remove the starter from the engine

Hope helps with this (remember rated this).

I got no signal to the starter, but i can push start it ok, igntion switch and clutch switch check out ok anyone know of any common problems?

I would say you don't have a good battery connection so I would say take the negative cable loose first then take the positive cable loose.Take some 100-150 grit sandpaper and clean off both the battery terminals and both cable ends as well and hook the positive cable up first then hook up the negative cable next that should solve your problem.
