Yellow wire is direct to battery.
Red wire is to ignition switch.
You can can an easy quick connector at walmart for $6. Otherwise you can hook straight to fuse. Or go to installer.com to find out what wires are what on your factory stereo wiring.

Vauxhall Vivaro 2006 , problem with stereo , wont switch on when i turn ignition on , but will switch on if on/off button pressed. i suspect the 12v switched ignition wire .


12 volt constant wire for the memory must be working
should keep the clock working and pre sets

12 volt wire from ignition acc is not giving 12 volts to radio

may have an inline fuse or check radio fuse
internal fuse cover has a legend

using on /off buttons might mean
resetting stations and stuff every time you want to drive

I connect the acc wire to 12 volt and stereo stays on all the time


The accessory wire is suppose to be hooked up to your ignition wire and not a constant 12 volt power source. Hooking it up to your ignition wire will only give the stereo power when your key is in the accessory position or in the running position. The constant power source that you mostly connected to is meant for the memory wire on your stereo which will allows it to save your setting when you turn the vehicle off and your stereo kicks off. Otherwise you will end up setting the clock and adjusting your EQ every time you turn it on.

What does the sony stereo orange wire connect to in 96 jeep cherokee


The orange wire from the Sony is the illumination wire, 12 volts put to this wire will dim the display on the stereo. The Jeep's BLUE/RED wire should have that function. Use a test light or multi meter to check for 12 volts + on that wire when the park lights are turned on.
The stereo will still function perfectly without the connection, just won't have the auto-dim feature.

Dash lights arent working on a 99 explorer, fuses are fine and all the other lights work. quit working after installation of aftermarket stereo


OK, that radio use a straight or constant 12 volts a ignition 12 volts and grounds. now your radio ground might be connected to the park light wires of the car. that wire will should grounds ( - ) but when you turn on the park light it turns to 12 volts to illuminate the dashboard gear shift etc. if that is the case you're wondering where you will get grounds to collect the radio, well the antenna wire has ground, so plug and play, and the frame where the radio goes has metal, which is also grounds. disconnect the black wire from the radio and that wire you can test by turning the park lights on and you will get 12 volts

Im installing an aftermarket stereo in my 2002 Grand Am.. I bought an expensive harness and its not working.. I have the radio working, but the ignition wire from the radio is hooked up to battery...


This vehicle does not have a switched power suppy in the factory harness. The orange wire in the car harness is a constant 12 volts.
To resolve connect the 12 volt power supply from the head unit to a switched circut at the fuse block and this will resolve your problem.

We are trying to install a pionere radio and without the power antena/system control wire hocked up the speakers have no sound when you hook it to 12 volts the tweeters click what should i do


The antenna wire, witch should be yellow. is not supposed to be hooked up to 12 volts. It is only meant to be used as an on censer . If that wire is the reason your speakers are not working then the stereo is defective. That wire should have 12 volts coming out of it when the stereo is on. And hooking it to 12 volts could have damaged your stereo. I would look at the wire diagram again before doing anything else.

So anyway if you are not using the power antenna wire cap it off and leave it alone. you do not need it. Check all of your connections again and follow the wire diagram.
Good luck.
