Check the ORG wire that goes to the multi-function alarm module in the convenience center. That is one source of radio power.

You can also get a voltage meter/tester and make sure you have current to the wires. Just ground it, then touch it to the wire, if it moves/lights then you have power. If not, you've probably got a blown fuse someplace.

SOURCE: amp keeps blowing fuse

I have this same problem. You have blown the internal amp. I have had 2 of these do the same thing. There is nothing you can do but report it to infinity and try to get the unit replaced.

SOURCE: Newly Installed Car CD Player won't power up

When you see this problem, it usually means you have power on your deck's constant power wire (usually yellow) but no power on the accessory power wire (usually red). The accessory power wire is the one that sends voltage to the deck when the key is turned on. Usually this means that the red wire is either connected to the wrong vehicle wire, or that the vehicle's radio fuse is blown. As a last resort, you can disconnect the red wire from whatever it's connected to, and re-attach it to the same connection as your yellow wire. This should allow the radio to power up, but it won't turn on and off with the key-switch; you'd have to remember to turn it off or remove the face when you leave the vehicle, or you may drain the battery. Alternately, you can extend the red wire to a different source of key-switched voltage. Depending on the vehicle, you may be able to find this behind the cigarette lighter, at the key switch itself, or at the fuse box.

The BUS wires are a serial data link, probably incompatible with other makes of CD player. I'd hesitate to connect it to +12v, this may cause damage. If anything try connecting it to BUS.C through a 1kohm resistor to start with.

Perhaps you need something like this to make it work. http://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-alpine-kcm-122b_p-20941.htm

SOURCE: problem installing car stereo

THE FIAT BRAVO HAS A STANDARD ISO CONNECTION WHICH SHOULD PLUG INTO MOST AFTERMARKET STEREOS AND THEREFORE YOU WON'T NEED TO KNOW THE COLOUR CODE, IF THERE ISN'T ANY PLUG ON THE STEREO BUY AN ISO PLUG THEY'RE NOT EXPENSIVE AND CONNECT IT TO THE RADIO AND JUST PLUG IT INTO THE CAR HARNESS, YOU DON'T REALLY WANT TO CUT THE CAR'S WIRING

I WANT TO ADD A CD PLAYER TO MY 2001 GRAND MARQUIS


Go to a Salvage Yard or contact Car-parts.com which is a collection of online parts salvagers. There were optional radios which had this feature and also a 6 CD stack for the trunk.

The biggest thing would be to make sure the wiring is compatible if going to a trunk mount. But a dash mount single radio/CD is probably the cheapest way and I would think the speaker wires should be compatible.

The manufactuers used a 4 pin lock system in the front dash facing of the radio. You can get the simple release pin barbs at Walmart or most autoparts places. Just insert the barb pin stems into the 4 square holes and press and the radio should come out.

You need to get it to a garage and get it on a code reader. That will tell you why the engine malfunction light came on. The rest of the stuff is telling you it is time for a new vehicle. Bad electrics are very hard to fix on a 24 year old car.

Installing an aftermarket CD player.


Go to a stereo sales & installation shop, or even auto parts places usually have them now too, and get an adapter harness for your particular vehicle. They plug directly in to your existing harness, then you simply wire your new stereo to it,via directions. Few bucks now, will save hours of aggravation later,.and if you decide to sell vehicle later, and put old one back in, it's all there to plug back in, nice & clean.

Replace stock cd player from one brand of car to another.


Check at stereo sales/install place, or most auto parts stores have them now, and ask for adapter for wiring & plate for mounting in what ever vehicle you decide. It makes things a lot neater, & easier. Take player in with you to make sure, mounting plate is correct.

Car stereo


its pretty simple, the remote wire is used to tell the amplifier that the cd player has came on. once the cd player has came on, the amp then comes on. simply take a light tester that has a sharp tip, turn the ignition until the cd player comes on, and start testing all of the wires. when you hit a wire in which the light tester says there is power flowing through it, turn the cd player off. if the light goes off with the cd player, you have found a wire that is suitable for a remote wire. dont know how to use a light tester? http://www.bcae1.com/testlite.htm
