I was having problems with the cd player I installed cutting out on sound. So i pulled it out to see if there was a loose connection. Everything was fine as far as i could see. The sound was working until I opened the door. The sound would cut out with the doors are open and then when you shut them it comes back. So I figured i could live with that so I put everything back together and now my car won't start! I have lights but it just doesn't turn over. I have no idea what i did. Can you help?
The cd player you are running is probably too much for the alternator that's in the car, especially if it won't start now... take the car in and have them check out the alternator... get this replaced if needed... if you can't do this, simply remove the cd player you installed and see if this fixes the problem... if so... take the cd player in to a certified pro and have them install it for you so you don't have to splice any bad wires and your car will continue to run.

I had the same problem with an installed CD player. 3 choices. 1: disconnect the plug on the back of the unit to stop the power drain. 2: Install a battery kill switch to turn off the batteries connection to the circuit and stop the power drain. 3: find the fuse for that cd player and pull it out! If all that fails than it's not your cd player!
You may have a bad control or while you where in the dash installing the cd player you may have cut into a wrong wire or pull a connector out a little causing it not to connect good, you will need to go back inside and check the wiring to the controls and check the wires you may have used to connect the player also make sure you didnt pop any fuses by mistake by wiring something wrong, the most common reason for a problem like this is due to connecting the light wire from the stock radio to the wrong wire, this wire is connect to lights for night driving, it lights up old radio at night for the display and i think this is your problem and may have blown the fuse, so if this is the case you will need to replace the fuse and locate that wire and disconnect it and tape it as its not used in the aftermarket radios.good luck and have a good day.
sounds like the amplifier but it could just be a loose connection if its a 6 cd player under the seat away from the radio if the radio works then its a connection problem as its showing what track and what cd its playing
