Question about 1998 Kia Sportage
So, my stock stereo on my 1998 Kia Sportage wasn't powering up. No biggie, I no longer had the code to unlock the thing so it wasn't worth bothering. It stopped working after I pulled it apart to see if I can throw in a stereo my friend gave me. When I plugged the stock stereo back in - nada.
So, I did some research and get my wiring diagrams and color codes and did an excellent job of pulling everything apart and slapping in my friend's old Pioneer. I was so proud of myself because I did a very thorough job. However...
There is an extra black wire. Perhaps a second grounding wire? It snapped onto the back of the stock stereo. Now, I put that wire onto the stock stereo when I threw it all back in. Is it possible that wire was not securely fastened? Or would it be something else that kept it from turning on?
Now that I have the Pioneer in instead, do I need to strip that extra black wire and add it to the other grounding wire that's already hooked up as part of the other 12 wires???
