You need to plug this back in to activate the player and remove the cd's or disassemble the unit to pull them out.There is too much to happen to just power up one circuit. Good Luck.

it sucks power through anything it's plugged into, like a power outlet on a wall, even something turned off takes a tiny amount from it. you have to unplug it every time you cut the car off. or did you want someone to tell you a way to rig it! that's why you have a freaking radar detector, you're a speeder, you should just get rid of the damn thing honestly, they can ticket a parked car with one of those.

Hi Slick, From my experience working on Toyota motor vehicles, they don't use colour coding. You'll need to identify the cables with a voltmeter and an used AA or AAA battery (like those from the TV remote). First find the constant power (which keeps the memory function of the set powered. Then by a process of elimination turn on the ignition and check each of the other cables until you find the ignition switched power. Check to make sure it' switched by turning the ignition on and off. To identify the speaker cables there should be a number of white cables with black tracer lines. Take any pair (removing a little insulation from the end to leave the metal cable open) and hold one cable onto the negative end of the battery and swipe the other cable end over the positive. As you do that the cable speaker will make a popping sound, where by you can identify which speaker is attached to what set of cables. Regards John

Use a VOM meter to check when the power is active on each of the four lines. My suspicion is that one is for power, one is for lights bright on the radio one is for lights low on the radio and one is probably the anti theft connection.
