Make sure that the wire is grounded to your frame, or any other unpainted metal surface. if no unpainted surface is available, get some sandpaper, and 2 gold, copper, or silver washers (in order from best connection to worst) from your local hardware store. find a bolt near the amp, that wont make something fall apart. take the bolt out, and sand the paint off underneath it. make sure to get all the paint and primer off. put the 2 washers on the bolt, and put the ground wire between the washers. then tighten the bolt nice and tight. this will give you the best possible ground connection, without running the ground to the neg of the battery. if this still doesnt work, try running the ground to the neg of the battery. if that doesnt work, then you should have your amp looked at. hope this helps

Temporary wired a clarion px 3310 for car installation, all was ok so turned off @ the head-unit and proceeded to install stereo with permanent wiring. Now...stereo installed, switch power on...nothing,try...


Here is the breakdown of the steps that you should take to pinpoint the issue.
  1. The first thing you should do is check the fuse for the radio. then you want to check the ground wire. Most people would think that if its not powering up then it must be the power wire. Not always the case.
  2. After you ensure that there is a solid ground between the chassis and the stereo you are going to want to check your Battery positive wire (power). Best way to do this is to use a test light. one end is clipped to a ground and the other end is a needle like probe, remove the harness from the radio and find where the power wire is fed into on the harness and probe it and see if you get the bulb to light.
  3. If the bulb does not light up, the next step is would be to check over the wires and see if there are any bare wires or any shorts. If there are wire connections that are made by electrical tape, take them apart and use actual wire connectors.
  4. Have the ignition in ACC on while probing.
  5. The last thing I could tell you and not stress enough. Be very careful when you are in there, people just don't understand just how tied into a vehicles electrical system a stereo is.
  6. Good Luck.

I need to know what the wiring harness wires do and go to by the colors of the wires. Example (yellow=12v constant/Red=12v acc/ Black=ground)


OK, I assume you are talking about the harness of wires from the radio itself. If you are going to install this, I recommend you purchase an install wiring harness. This way you can plug into the factory harness of the vehicle. If you are attempting to hardwire the radio, please don't. If you vehicle doesn't have the factory vehicle side of the harness, try visiting the scosche or PAC website to see if they have it first. If you purchase a wiring harness, it will have all the information for the right install. Hope this helps.

I have 3 power wires on my Jensen MCD5080 marine am/fm/cd, a +12dc switched (acc)red wire , dimmer orange wire and a +12v dc battery (constant batteryemory yellow wire) do i hook them all to the same power...


The yellow wire (constant) is for functions such as clocks, retaining fm stations, etc. The red wire (DC power) is what runs the unit. You said this is going on a golf cart right? But you say you don't want switches and don't want it to drain the battery during storage. Well, you can't have the best of both worlds. If you don't like the visual of a switch in the open, at least put one close to the battery under the seat. That way you can switch it off in storage. The switch would go to the red wire. You might even think about switching the orange wire if you expect to keep it in long term storage. the dimmer wire usually hooks to interior light controls. Like when you turn your lights on to drive at night, the radio won't be so bright inside, but in the day time, it will be. This is not a necessity. Happy wiring

The protect light wont turn off, so power light wont come on


OK, I am assuming that you are talking about an amplifier, right? If so, check the wiring. An amplifer's protection senses fluctuations in amperage load. This is a good thing. It's saving your amp from frying, so don't be mad at the amp. Start with the ground wire. This is typically the source of the problem. If you know how to use a multimeter, use it to ensure that your ground is a good position. If you solve this, look at the guage of wire you are using. 50-65 amp loads from 13-22 foot runs are acceptable for a 4 guage wire. If you are running 8 guage for this, you need to upgrade your wire. Look at your amp. Check the fuses. The numbers on the fuses, add them up. You can use that as a bases for your amperage load. Also, is your remote wire allowing the amp to turn off, and thus reset? Something else to think about. Happy Wiring

The tan wire is the muse wire if you ground this wire to ground it will mute the radio. the blue/white is a amp turn on wire connect this wire to the amp turn on lead from the amplifier.

The red triangular light on my 1800 watt kenwood amp is flashing and i do not know what to do to fix it. no sound is coming out of my subs


i have a smaller kenwood amp but it has the same triangle, i had that problem too, so i ran a ground wire from the battery to the amp, with 12 ga wire, and then i also grounded it with the chassis ground, on the big amps its better to have really good grounds and connections

Hello! I will assume you are connecting a factory radio for your 1993 Shadow.
Remove the Orange wire from ground...Listed below is wiring from car to radio; You may need this one day...You are correct; There isn't a dimmer wire...The Orange wire, from the radio, connects to the Orange/White of the vehicle...Grounding the Orange wire is causing your problem...

1993 Shadow...Orange/ White=Illumination...Red=Hot at all times...Red/White=Switched 12volts...Black=Ground

Factory radio...Orange=Illumination...Pink=Hot at all times... Red/White=Switched 12volts...Black=Gnd.


Car; Orange/White to Orange of radio
Red To Pink
Red/White To Red/White
Black To Black

Let me know how you make out..

Punch p1 10" not working


I had the same issue with 2 Punch p1's. The wire stripping was most likely cut where the wires are saddled against 2 bare metal "C" shaped tabs before going toward the cone and coil. This was causing the wire to ground out. I cut both wires and **** connected them and bypassed the factory bracket. They work fine now. This is a poor desogn from Rockford and I can see where it might happen numerous times.
