You have a power wire going to your on off switch you should also have a power going to a memory wire to keep your stations and clock intact.

SOURCE: clock doesn't work. I put in an after market radio

Did the clock stop working immediately after the radio install? If so then it sounds like a fuse may have blown. If not then it is most likely a clock issue. I have 4runner clock removal instructions at my website: www.autoclockrepair.com
Drop me a note if you have any questions!

Check your instrument panel fuses. #18 AC it controls your clock, antenna, radio, and power rear view mirror. If the fuse is OK then it is most likely an internal failure in the clock. I offer an affordable repair service and have the removal instructions. Check out

SOURCE: how to connect aftermarket radio

Your aftermarket radio should have color-coded wires which identifies power, ground, speakers, etc. most depaetment stores carry a radio harness adapter kit. This will connect to your radio's exact color coded wires, and will plug right in to your factory's wiring plug. And don't forget electrical tape.

I PUT AN AFTERMARKET RADIO WONT POWER UP.


If your Trailblazer does not have rear seat audio, check the 15A RADIO FUSE in the I/P fuse panel. If your Trailblazer has rear seat audio, check 15A RADIO FUSE 41 and 10A HVAC B FUSE 36 in the rear fuse block. You may have to use a different adapter to get the radio to work.

2006 F-150 radio won't turn off, power locks/ windows not working


check the circuit breakers & relays associated with widows/locks, check your owners manual for description of where these can be found, is the radio an aftermarket unit or is it standard, if it's aftermarket then it has been wired in with a continuous live & will need to be re wired, if it is standard then you could have a short in the wiring that has "Jumped" a continuous live to the unit, Hope this helps

Should i have any spare wires when hooking up an after market car stereo


Yes, It's a very good possibility that you will have a few wires left over. Normally a wire for an aftermarket amp to be triggered on when you turn your radio on and possibly a power antenna or a dimming function that dims your radio lights when your headlights are on. It of course always depends on if you have a power antenna or not, or if you have an aftermarket amp or not or if you have the dimming feature on your car or not. These wires don't apply to everyone.
You will just match the colors between the wiring harness that came with the DUAL radio and the interface adapter that goes to your car. Make sure you use **** style crimp connectors. If not the wires could come loose or cause a popping noise or cause the radio to turn off while driving.
Other than that, installing an aftermarket radio is mostly matching the colors up between the two harnesses and crimping the wires together.3_6_2012_2_31_36_am.jpg

Stereo cuts in and out


If it's the stock radio it's probably something internal that's come loose, if your still under warranty have the dealer replace it, if not buy a new aftermarket radio.

if you have an aftermarket radio, you should pull it out and check for loose wires, there will be a diagram on the either top or bottom of the radio.

My factory radio went out in my car...so i had a new one put it in. After the guy installed the radio we noticed that my park lights and dash lights werent working. We checked the fuses and they were all...


I really hope that this guy bought a wiring kit to put in the aftermarket radio, because this could be simple. Your stock radio runs the dash and parking lights threw it's display and that needs to be looped with the new radio. On the aftermarket, there is a orange wire that does this. Since the stock wiring is different with every make and model of auto out there, you need to buy the wiring kit that plugs into the car's harness and matches in color to the harness of the new radio. Putting together the orange wires will give you back your lights. If this person cut the orginal plugs off of the car and wired it direct to the car, you may want to see if the plugs can be put back on and the wiring kit installed or you going to be going through a nightmare of figuring out what wire is what on the car side. Those wiring kits that plug into the car and wire up to the radio are cheap and can be bought at Wal Mart for about 20 to 25 dollars. Good luck

My radio and 6 disc cd changer won't work, it used to have an amp it looks as if the speaker cord was broken and there is notable vibration no matter what gear it is in


Does the radio turn on?

The amp would have been under your passenger seat. There would be a plug and thick wire routed from the radio to the changer and that would be the only wire at the changer location. If this is unplugged, the changer wouldn't work but the radio should still work.

If someone put in an aftermarket stereo system they may have cut the wires at the stock amp to splice into or rewired the car all together.

Check the connections on the back of the head unit. Check the wires going into the amp under the seat.

If those are good, you'll need to remove the door panels to check the wiring at the speakers.

You may want to do a continuity check from tip to tip of wires from the head unti to the amp, amp tot the speakers to insure they are good.
