Question about 1994 Ford Crown Victoria

1 Answer

Stereo draining battery?

It seems that the only way my radio works is when the red(battery) and ignition(yellow) wires are wired together. the radio will light up and all but it wont work unless the red n yellow from the car and the red n yellow from the radio are connected. mostly all day the car was taking a while to start up and u could hear the battery cranking. is there any other way to connect the radio to this 94 crown vic? ive tried the diagrams online and they seem not to work. oh and my dash and interior lights go out when the red and yellow are not connected. please help

It sounds like you need to have the car looked at by a professional. This is not normal, and its def. NOT good for the car. Have an electrical specialist check it out.

The yellow is for the memory of the radio. It keeps the stations you program in. The red needs to go to a ignition on only. Other wise the radio will always be on, unless you turn it off every time with the knob. It is working because yo can hook them up and the radio works. Just find an ignition on wire...

Hi, your factory Sunfire wire colors are pasted below. The yellow wire should be accessory. This should connect to the stereo's red power wire. The orange "always hot" wire should connect to the stereo yellow wire--this is only used to keep your station presets in memory. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
