I connect the acc wire to 12 volt and stereo stays on all the time


The accessory wire is suppose to be hooked up to your ignition wire and not a constant 12 volt power source. Hooking it up to your ignition wire will only give the stereo power when your key is in the accessory position or in the running position. The constant power source that you mostly connected to is meant for the memory wire on your stereo which will allows it to save your setting when you turn the vehicle off and your stereo kicks off. Otherwise you will end up setting the clock and adjusting your EQ every time you turn it on.

New radio in truck wont power dont when truck is off


There are two 12 volt sources from the vehicle behind the stereo, one is a constant which the stereo requires to keep the clock circuit powered, the other is a switched ignition source which is designed to supply power to the stereo when the key is turned backward from the off position and or forward, you likely connected both wires from the stereo to the constant wire. Perform a Google search to obtain a wire color diagram of your vehicle.

Tring to find out which color wire is for the ignition switch so i canhook up my stereo


You will want two of them, one is constant power, and can come from the battery if needed, and the other will be accessory power. It'll be the one that only gets power when your key is in and not in the "lock" position. You can actually hook both the stereo's wires to the constant power, but then you'll need to shut the stereo off manually, it won't go on and off with the car.

Car battery keeps dying


Myguess is that you have an electrical short which is causing a drain on the battery. The way to check this is to get a 12 v test light. Unhook the negative side of the battery. Hook the test light up between the negative battery post and the battery cable. If the light comes on, You have a short/drain. To find where the short is, you leave the test light hooked up. Then you start pulling fuses until the light goes out. However, your car stereo needs to be completely unhooked before you do this test because most stereos have a constant electrical source so that the clock stays accurate and the memory stays active so your programed stations don't get lost.

Stereo plays on acc. after u start engine plays 2-3 seconds


IS THERE AN AMP? ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE DECK/ AMP HOOKED UP TO A CONSTANT "KEY ON" POWER SOURCE? I WOULD GET A TEST LIGHT(REAL CHEAP AT WALMART, OR AUTOPARTS STORES) AND SEE IF MAIN WIRE IS NOT A TIMED KEY ON CIRCUT.... ALSO IF AMP IS BEING USED MAKE SURE ITS HOOKED TO REMOTE ON WIRE(USUALLY BLUE WIRE) AND NOT POWER ANTENNA LEAD OR SOME OTHER TEMP/TIMED POWER LEAD. GOOD LUCK

Power flashing in and out


Take your ground connection directly to metal, this is to insure you have a good ground. Stereo going in and out could be because of a shorted or miswired speaker. Disconnect all speakers and test the stereo. If the stereo continues to blink, you have a stereo problem.

One possibility is that the light in not firmly seated in its socket inside the stereo. If you find that the blinking is worse when driving over bumpy surfaces this will help confirm that the issue is related to an intermittent electrical connection.
