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.

How to do car audio wiring


You can look your radio wiring up on the new radio from the manufacturer's website if you can not find it in the owners manual. In order to know which wires go to what in your car, you can look them up online using a basic search engine. Type in basic car info, dodge intrepid 2001 radio wiring diagram, or reply with this info and we can help. Most basic after market radios are wired as such, black ground, red to switched power and yellow to 12V+ constant. Again, always check owners manual for new radios.

Just bought the used car and radio was working. Came with a Kenwood KDC-148 stereo. 2 days later, radio just was dead. Have checked fuses, wires and everything looks good. Everything else electrical...


Check the power from the harness. The yellow wire which is usually for constant 12v power and the red wire which should only have power when the key is turned on. check those wires and if you have power on both then the radio is fried. Try pushing the pins in the back of the radio harness in and see if maybe there is a loose pin, other than that, like i said , the radio may be bad.

How do i take the radio out of my 2000 silverado


When you remove the radio do not cut the wires. They sell a after market piece that plugs into the factory wiring harness and it in return has the wires cut at the end to splice into the radio. They also have a after market bracket that the after market radio fits into and slides back into the same place as the old one does with the same clip style. Your auto parts store should carry everything you need.

After i installed an after market deck on my 2001 chevy suburban my dash lights went out what can be the problem


I would put things back to stock and see if they now work. If they dont you may of shorted out a solder joint and ruined the cluster which would have to be replaced as a whole. If after you get it bact to stock and everything works I would be hooking up to a different power source. Also its always a good Idea to run an extra ground wire from engine to body when you add a more steroo system or accessories. This prevents electrolisis in the radiator which could eat thru the heater core or radiator.

Power to pioneer deh-2000mp will not turn on


MOST OF THE TIME THE CONSTANT CAN NOT BE HOOKED UP TO THE SAME WIRE AS THE POWER WIRE, U SHOULD HAVE A WIRE IN UR HARNESS THAT IS YELLOW USE THAT WIRE, IF U DONT FIND A FUSE INSIDE UR CAB USE THE FUSE AS A CONSTANT POWER LEAD BUT PUT IT ON ONE THAT CUTS ON WITH THE KEY.

Radio cuts off and back on seems to be vol related


This is cause by many things one of which is a faulty speaker that is going short when operated at high volume. Another is the wiring supply the power to the radio is not "thick" enough hence not able to supply the demand for extra current. Had this same problem with Golf II which I replaced the main supply wire and after that it went to full volume with no cutting off.

My pioneer deh-1900 mp will not turn on


did you use a wire harness adapter or did you connect the wires from the radio directly to the wires in the car? do you have a computer safe test light or a digital vom meter? do not use a conventional test light in this car or an analogue meter to check for power

Jensen MP7610 power cuts off frequently from time to time


i have a eclipse that would cut power to the cd player when ever it wanted. it turned out that the yellow memory wire had a bad spot in it. i cut a chunk out and then made a fresh connection from car to cd player and has worked great ever since! give it a try.
