Question about Pioneer KEH-P4020 Cassette Player
I have hooked up my stero all wires in the right place all fuses good but the unit will not turn on
What kind of car do you have? This can make the difference. Many cars with small engines (eg. Geo Metro) simply do not generate enough power to operate the radio. Other times the car can generate enough power to support the radio, but when you plug something into the cigarette lighter/power outlet the radio shuts off because the car isn't powerful enough to handle both. The first thing you need to do is to make sure that the car's electrical output is sufficient to operate the radio, after that it would be a good idea to make sure that all of the wires are connected properly.

Do you have a good ground for the black wire? If you have a good ground, the problem may be a blown fuse in the car. There are two wires requiring power on an aftermarket car stereo, yellow wire – constant power, and the red wire – switched power with ignition on. There are usually two fuse panels, in the passenger area and under the hood near the car’s battery. Check all fuses.
Troubleshooting – with ground wire connected, connect both the red and yellow wire from the aftermarket car stereo together, then connect both to the constant power wire in the dash and test stereo. Then with ignition on, connect both to the switched ignition wire. Stereo works only when connected to one wire in the dash? You have a blown fuse on the other power wire.
