I installed my deck, as soon as I turn it on the power goes in and out. I tested from my ground to constant, steady power, then ground to ignition hot, steady power. I pluged another deck in and it does the same thing. I'm stumped, please help!!!
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.

There are three main wires that control the power of any deck. They are as follows:
Bat+(12v) -RED- This is the main power wire. There is no mistaking this wire
Ground -Black- ground wire that is usually connected to the frame.
Constant -Yellow - This is the wire that provides a constant low voltage to the deck when the ignition is turned off. This is the wire that maintains certain functions such as last position on CD and also for the clock to maintain the correct time.
The constant wire is the one you are looking for. The best way to find the constant wire is to take a test light and probe till you find it, when you are doing this make sure that the ignition is off. In this state only the constant wire will set off the test light. Good Luck and let me know if you need any more help
Check all your fuses first. The yellow wire behind the deck is for a constant 12 volts from the battery( to retain memory), the red wire is for switched power, for example when you turn the key it should be 12 volts, when you remove the key(or turn off) there should be no voltage on the red wire, and of course, make sure you have a good ground. Use a test light when performing these tests, it's a time saver.
Check your remote wire on both the deck and amp...
If the remote wire is loose it will turn the amp on and off constantly...
Also check to make sure that the fuses on the amp it self are properly seated.
flashing light could mean a few different things. 1- constant power may not be there. check with a test light or multimeter. should read around 12 volts. it would be a good idea to check all the power and ground leads. make sure u have a good ground. 2- bad sub. im assuming sub since its a monoblock amp. you can meter the subs. make sure the total ohm load is no less than 2 ohms. any lower the amp will go into protect mode. 3- bad amp. power supply may be bad. the newer pioneer amps are full of protection circuits. ive been a professional installer for a shop about 8 years and we sell pioneer. hope it helps.
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.
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.
