This is a problem I have seen on several occasions. This stereo communicates with the car's computer. I'd suggest disconnecting the car's battery for 15-20 minutes. This can act as a reset and may remove any glitch in the system. I have seen amplifier problems also be the cause.

I just installed an aftermarket amp in my 2006 Cadillac DTS and I cant seem to find a wire the shuts off whenever the car does. its like all the wires are hot. i need this for my remote wire to cut off the...


Options. Run it thru the cab and put a nice switch on it. Just have to remember to turn it off every day. Or try running a small wire from the ignition fuse to the remote spot. Doesnt have to a big wire at all. Its just to tell the amp to go "ON"

Okay, a while back my stock stereo was stolen from my car, i went and bought a new one and as i went to try to install it i noticed some wires that look like they had been cut i didnt know how to hot wire...


was the black plg the antennae? As far as the wires..... power cord on aftermarket radios are almost ALWAYS red, the ground wire is ALWAYS black. Once those are connected, then you can trial and error the other wires to see which wires go to which speaker (while playing a song on the radio / cd, the wire will tell you which speaker it leads to when - all of a sudden - IT WORKS. Hope this helps. Remember, each speaker has a (+) wire and a (-) wire. If you end up with extra wires after everything works, then.... not sure what you have. (Sorry)

I put a new radio in my car and now it wont start 1190 toyota


Did you in stall it your self ? if so make sure you didnt blow fuses and check the connections make sure you are getting power and if you put subs and power amp and stuff like that make sure you have enough battery power to power everything if not the car wont even turn at all cuz the juice is working on its own to start the radio. check also you didnt cut any wires while doing so and if you didnt install it your self and took it in then take it back something went wrong maybe....
