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

you more than likely have the red/yellow wire (coming out from the back of the radio) reversed. the orange wire is usually for the dimmer feature and is not necessary to hook up. The red wire needs to be hooked to an accessory wire (i.e. send power when you turn the car on and goes to ground when the cars off) and the yellow wires needs a constant power source (i.e. always on from the battery) the yellow wire lets the radio retain memory.

My clarion CD player in my Nissan Primera P12 2004 will not eject the discs can this be rectified and would it be expensive.


Hi.


Check first that it is not a single disk stuck inside.

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button on the on dash player while at the same time you start the stereo.

If that does not work you can try disconnecting the car battery to reset the unit, and then attempt again the procedure above.

Remember that you may be asked stereo code after disconnecting battery, have it ready.

If still no luck, then the unit must be removed from the dash to be taken apart, so to remove the stuck disk.

In that case the repair may require replacement of CD drive unit or front panel. When disk does not exject repair done from a local technician may be expensive. Usually better replacing the whole stereo unit.

Regards.

PS: Here the procedure above illustrated in detail. The procedure is described for home DVD players, but it is the same on any optical unit, including in-dash stereo. Naturally , since the unit is an in-car system, you do not have power cord, but you will need to disconnect battery to reset the system: player system won't eject disk.

2002 malibu wiring diagram?!?!?!?!?!?!


ok, the red and yellow wires serve 2 different purposes.the yellow supplies constant power to your stereo, and the red is switched power. what youve done is combine the two, and connect them to a constant power source. like this, your stereo wont be switched with your ignition. so take off the red wire, but leave the yellow wire connected to the wire its already on. make sure your stereo fuse is good in the fusebox of the car. then, use a test light, with the ignition switch on, to find the second wire on your cars harness that has power. that will be your switched power. connect that one to your red wire, and that will solve your problem.

Fitting a sony cd player to punto


your problem is an accessory (red) wire, it needs to be hooked up to a 12 volt alternating current, something that turns on and off with the key, the yellow wire on the other hand needs to be hooked up to something that has constant 12v power.

Sony XR-C350 Car Stereo - can't use cassette adapter for ipod!


For Sony radios you need an aux Bus adapter called the Sony XA 300. It works with the Bus IN RCA, and there whould also be another plug spot for the Bus power and signal interrupter. That is how the Sony knows to access that port.
