Question about 1999 Chevrolet Prizm

Open Question

Trying to replace the stock stereo in my 1999 chevy prism but someone who owned it before hooked up a xm receiver and took out the inline fuse. I have power to my switch power line but none to my constent.. I followed the wires and could not find any inline fuses all other fuses are fine.. Any idea why my switch power line has power when switch is on but my constent power line has none with or without the switch on??

SOURCE: 2003 Chevy Cavlier Rear Window Defroster not working

I had the exact same problem and I had determined that it was in the wires leading to the rear defrost. The main problem area is in a connector located under the footrest for the drivers left foot under the carpet. The wire leading to the rear defrost runs through the drivers side under the plastic moulding in the car frame, the wire is black and the thickest one in the bundle. A large green/blue connector usually melts the plastic around the connection causing it to fail. I fixed this by just getting a new connector similar to my old one from a junkyard and just rewired it, connecting the same wires the connector as before. It is in an awful location but it is possible to do. Be sure solid connections are made and soldered correctly to prevent this from happening again.

How can I get our 2011 Suzuki Kizashi to accept a USB cable to enable our portable XM radio unit to work? It currently states: "Not Supported" each time a usb is hooked up to the portable XM unit. (On


I believe the USB socket your Subaru is only a charging port and does not really hook to the radio. This would require more than I know how to do, unless you can enable bluetooth on the car and your XM will work that way.

First thing I would do is have someone qualified disconnect the alarm and stereo and start over.
Chances are you have circuits cross-connected and something is draining the battery.

Out of curiousity did you check your fuse? In installing one a while ago I created a short and had no power a simple fuse replacement and all was good?

The other one is if you made cuts in the wire did you make sure the right connections were made?

May seem simple and if you already checked apologies for mentioning it however, I have found sometimes that we pass the simple solutions trying to make it more complicated than what it is.

My vw passat 1999 jvc cd player canot hold memory. have to start my music from track 1 any time the key is out. do i need rewiring? thanks


THERE ARE 2 POWER INPUT WIRES ONE RED THE OTHER YELLOW THEY BOTH HAVE INLINE FUSES THE YELLOW IS FOR THE MEMORY AND SHOULD HAVE +12 AT ALL TIMES RED ONLY WHEN KEY IS ON OR ACC. SOME JVC UNITS HAVE A FUSE PLUGED INTO THE BACK OF THE UNIT ITSELF THEN YOU HAVE TO PULL IT OUTLOOK AT YOUR FUSE PANEL AND YOU MAY SEE RIGHT OFF A BLOWN FUSE BUT IF THE STEREO WAS INSTALLED PROFESSINALY THEY USUALLY HAVE A HARNESS THAT PLUGS DIRECTLY INTO THE FACTORY HARNESS ELIMINATING THE INLINE FUSE THUSLY THE FUSE ON THE BACK IF IT WAS PUT IN WITHOUT A HARNESS ADAPTER YOU SHOULD SEE THE RED AND YELLOW WIRES. IF SO MAKE SURE THEY ARE PLUGGED INTO THE FUSE BOX OR HARDWIRED TO THE OLD HARNESS THE YELLOW ONE IS THE PROBLEM IF THE RADIO PLAYS BUT NO MEMORY THE FASTEST WAY TO CHECK IT IS TO PULL THE PLUG FROM THE BACK OF THE STEREO IF YOU CAN GET TO IT AND HOOK A TEST LIGHT TO GROUND AND TEST THE YELLOW FOR POWER IF NO LIGHT THEN LOOK FOR THE INLINE FUSE OR CHECK ON THE BACK. IF THE RED AND YELLOW WIRES WERE CROSSED ON INSTALLATION IT WOULD DO A SIMULAR THING ASWELL, IF YOU TELL ME THE MODEL# OF THE JVC I CAN BE MORE HELP. MAKE SURE YOU KNOW YOUR SECURITY RESET CODE BEFORE YOU REMOVE ANY FUSES OR PLUGS OR YOU'LL HAVE A HARD TIME RESETING IT GOOD LUCK!

I replaced the stock radio with an aftermarket one and my tail lights and dash lights dont work now


Most likely you got the illumination wire for the stock radio grounded. The stock radio has lights in it that are connected to the dash lights to illuminate the dials of the radio. Most aftermarket stereos don't have a hook up for that. The wire may have got hooked up to ground. I would check the fuse to see if it's bad. Also you might want to undo the new stereo, replace the fuse, if it's bad, and check the wires for battery when the headlights are on.
