Try taping the ground wire directly to the negative battery terminal, and the positive and RMT wires to the positive battery terminal, if the unit still won't turn on, check for a fuse on the unit itself, otherwise it may be dead on arrival.  If it does work, check all your car fuses, also look for inline fuses on the stereo live wire harness.  Hope this helps

I have a 95 nissan maxima i am trying to replace stock radio(bose) w/a new cd player but once its hooked up im not hearing any sound? whats wrong with it?


Most Bose car stereos have an external amplifier. You will need to see if that is the case on your factory setup and remove the amplifier. Then hook the new headunit straight to the speakers.

I HAVE A 1994 BUICK GRAND SPORT. I WANT TO HOOK A STERIO UP BUT THE STERIO THAT CAME WITH THE BUICK HAS A DOUBLE COMMPONET SET UP . HOW DO I BYPASS THAT AND HOOK UP THE CD PLAYER TO THE SPEAKERS?


1) Understand the basics of all car stereo systems. A car stereo system consists of 4 main components and the wiring that connects them. These are the head unit, the main speakers, optional amplifiers and the subwoofers, which are also optional but generally considered a necessary part of any good system. 2) Know that the core of any car stereo is the head unit, which is the cassette or CD player that goes in the dash. All the other components are connected to the head unit by at least one pair of wires. 3) Know about car speakers. The main speakers are usually 2 in the front and 2 in the back, although with what are known as component speakers, each speaker is broken down into two speakers: one for the highs and one for the bass. Each speaker or speaker set (known as a channel) connects to the head unit via a pair of wires. Generally if you are installing a new head unit you want to install new speakers. 4) Know about amplifiers. Amplifiers provide extra power to your speakers and/or extra channels of power for additional speakers. The most common use for an amplifier (amp) is to power subwoofers. The amp connects to your head unit via an RCA cable and often a "remote on" wire, and also connects directly to your car battery through a fused "hot" wire and to the car's chassis with a short ground wire. This article assumes the use of a single amplifier connected to a pair of subwoofers. If you do not have these components simply ignore the steps specific to the amp, doing so will not affect the rest of your installation. 5) Know about subwoofers. Subwoofers are part of any good stereo system. They provide the deep bass that small speakers cannot achieve. Subwoofers are connected to the amplifier which can usually be mounted right to the subwoofer box. If you do not have subwoofers you can simply ignore the steps specific to them.

I have a 1998 Pioneer head unit to put in my car. the #is 1256237179. Is There anyway to get a diagram to see how to hook it up?


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Disconnect your car battery. It is vitally important to your safety that you never work on any type of electronic in your car with the battery still connected, as this puts you at risk for electrocution.
2. Remove the old stereo by taking off all the dashboard panels surrounding your stereo, sliding out your old stereo head unit, and unplugging all the wires that are connected to the head unit. Discard the old stereo.
3. Take your Pioneer car stereo head unit and plug each of the positive wires from your car speakers to the positive terminals on the head unit. Take all of the negative speaker wires and connect them to the negative terminals on the head unit.
4. Attach the stereo's black ground wire to a metal bolt or screw located near where the stereo is mounted in the dash.
5. Connect all of the ignition power wires to your Pioneer stereo.
6. Take the harness connector and plug it into your car stereo. Now plug the antenna into the back of your head unit.
7. Slide the stereo back into the dash, screw it in place, and replace the dashboard pieces you removed earlier.
8. Reconnect your car battery, turn the car on and test out your new Pioneer car stereo. Please post comments for more help or information..........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

sometimes if condensation gets into a dvd player it can mess things up and make it not work properly, I would take it back to the store and get it replaced.

Stereo hook up no sound


After all connections are completed correctly - Press the RESET button. The RESET button on the housing must be activated with either a ballpoint pen or similar pointed object. The RESET button is to be activated for the following reasons:
• Initial installation of the unit after all wiring is completed.
• Some the function buttons do not operate.
• Error symbol appears on the display.

Need to hook up a 200 pioneer stereo with wire harness from 96 honda accord to the wiring on a 64 impala


you'll need a small 12 v lamp to figure out which one has the power terminals. after mapping that out you need to find a small battery and hook it up to a pair of wires to figure out to which speaker the wires go to.

note : new car radios don't use the chassis ground as common (negative).. the head unit has a negative and positive wire for EACH speaker.

Brand New Unit Will Not Accept ANY Type of CD


I am having the same problem but only with a KDC-MP335 unit. I installed it in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee to the stock system, pretty easy install just matching colors for wires and everything works (Radio). but not one CD plays. it says reading and it acts as if it is playing the tracks but no sound... what is going on? did I mess up wiring it or something?
