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.

I am just wondering how i might start to wire the deck for power and such and where each color of wire goes and so on


Find the fusebox, then the one marked ACC (accessories, this way it can run with the key turned backwards as well like all radios would). Pull the fuse and test for power. On the side with no power is where you want to install the CD's power wire. Ground the ground wire somewhere firmly. Reinstall the fuse and turn the key backwards and it should run.

Doesn't it have an instruction manual?

The reason I ask is some can be very different. Some you hook to the power and they have a wire (mine was orange) which says to hook to the accessories.

The rest will be speaker wires. Just keep them phase matched.

I cannot match up the wires from my clarion DB265MP head to the wires from my 99 honda accord lx. when i ground the head and touch the main power line to the battery terminal, it works though. what gives?


you need to buy the wiring harness that is for your car then you can just hook the harness to your deck and plug it in to the car,unless your wires in your dash are all cut up,in that case you need a tester light.ground the light on somthing and look for the wire that lights up when the car is turned off,this is your battery back-up it goes to yellow on the deck,next look for a wire that has power with your ihgnition and loses power when ignition is off,this one goes to the red on the deck,look for a ground they are usually black but test it for power cause that would blow your fuse,or make your own by drilling a hole somewhere in the chassis and attach to black wire on deck,as for speakers you will prob need to remove front speakers,look at the colors and these are the same as colors youll see where deck is,then check back speaker wire colorwhich also runs to your dash

Have power to the unit, but will not turn on at all. Is there an internal fuse in the bse unit?


The only fuse that is serviceable will be inline on the Yellow or Battery constant wire. Both this wire and the orange (battery switched) wire need to have 12V in order for the deck to turn on. Have you tested your ground as well? Some decks ground to the chassis and therefore if not installed there will not be a ground and therefore no power.

How to install a cd player without a wireing harness. Ok i bought an 1993 chevey s10 well some one cut off the part that goes into the factory tape deck.I already ran the wires for the speakers and i was...


If the speakers are working already, you will have to connect the red wire from the stereo to the yellow wire for the iginition. Black to black for ground, and yellow from the stereo to orange in the vehicle wiring. If you are using a test light, the orange should be constant +12 volts, yellow will have switched +12 volts. This will turn off the stereo with the key.

Please be sure to give a rating. thank you.

Chevy stock speakers are 8 ohm. You should change out the stock speakers. Or at least dissconnect the back speakers and see if cd player still overloads and shuts off.

Check your Ground Wire inside the Truck and Check the Illumination Wire. I Think on Kenwood the Illumination Wire goes with the Power Wire. If they still will not work, You might want to get a Wiring Harness from Schoche.com Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

make sure the speaker grounds are connected to the speaker ground wires on the deck and not the "chassis" ground. also make sure both power wires are hooked up to a power source. the thinner power wire is supposed to be a switched source (like the ignition key or an accessory switch) that turns the unit on and the thicker one is a constant source which actually powers the deck once the switched source is turned on.
