Yes turn the ignition key to on, use a test light, you will find two wire with 12v power, one will have power when the key is on, and one will all ways have poweer, that one is the back of battery. the other wire powers the radio.

Wiring harness picture needed for 1993 Nissan Altima. When headlights turned on, stereo shuts off.


Nissan change their color codes on their harnesses all the time , a diagram won't be much use.
What has happened is that Nissan has a wire that appears to be an earth in the stereo harness , but goes live when the headlights are turned on ( it is there for the factory stereo to dim the lights when the headlights are turned on.)
Easiest way to connect stereo is to use a Multitester set on 20 volts to find Power , Accessory and earth wires, remembering to turn your lights on and off each time to check for the Nissan sneaky wire. ( You are lucky, I have seen whole looms go up in smoke because of that wire )
To isolate the individual speaker wires, solder a couple of wires to a AA battery and " flash " it across the pairs of suspected speaker wires while listening for a " Crackle " from the speakers, this is a handy way to figure out which wires go to each speaker without having to pull the doors apart to look.
Happy Fixing Marshall

Peugeot 306 stereo won't work when engine is running!!


Is this by any chance the original clarion (peugeot branded) stereo?
If so, try disconnecting the remote control stick from the back.
You may find it solves all your problems...
If not, you may wish to check the earthing of your cd player. It sounds like one of the wires may be earthing, or an earth may become live when you tun the ignition on.

Ive bought a peugeot306 recently and the person who had the car before has took there car stereo out and cut the wire, so now im having trouble putting my stereo in. thanks


  • First thing to do is isolate all the cables from each other and put insulating tape over the bare cables.
  • Now using a multimeter set on 12 volts or above test each cable in turn with the ignition on.
  • You will find one live cable that is only live when you have your ignition in the number one position.
  • This is the live feed to your radio, fit a small amp-age fuse (5 or 7.5 amp) depending on the rating for your new radio.
  • You will have speaker wires, these you can identify by tracing them from each speaker.
  • By now you will have identified your live cable and your speaker cables.
  • You may have a secondary live for a electric aerial and an earth cable. You must earth your radio even if you have to make an earth on the inner bodywork.
  • If you do not need the secondary live then make if safe.
  • If you need the secondary live fit an appropriate fuse.
  • Earth the new radio.
I use this system on used cars before fitting radios/cd players. It works but be careful.
