Where to tap 12v switched in the dash?


There should be the power wire to the stereo that you can tap into. Red not yellow. Yellow is constant power and red is power when the key is on.

I have an 89 camaro rs, I am getting power to the red power wire on my radio, but when I turn on the car I get no response and cd radio will not work. Any ideas?


there are two power wires to most radios. usually red and yellow. the red wire provides 12v when the key is turned on and yellow provides a constant 12v. both must have power to turn the radio on. there will be two fuses for the radio also so make sure both fuses are good. the only other thing that will keep the radio from coming on is the ground wire "usually black" that has to be connected to the ground in the factory harness or you can just connect it to any bare metal behind the dash

Radio power and ignition wire colors what are they?


Radio power is normally solid red.
I like to rerout my radio power to the cigarette lighter so I can have the radio on without the key in.
