How do i get lites on face they are dim


Check your car battery. Try to turn off your headlights and aircon then look at your stereo if its bright, if it has bright light try to turn on your aircon and headlights then if the light of your stereo turns dim the problem is now on your car battery. The battery cannot supply all the electricity needs of your car.

I have a CDA 7892 alpine works great but would like the display to be brighter seems a bit dim manual does not say this model can be adjusted or am i missing it any help thanks in advance


You didn't specify if you wanted the display brighter in the daytime while headlights are off or if it is too dim when the headlights are on, with respect to the rest of the instrument panel illumination. Too bright is easier to deal with but too dim is tough. If it is always too dim under but daytime and night time conditions the only way to improve brightness would be to very gently disassemble the front panel (easier if it is the removable type) and determine what provides the back lighting. If there are tiny LEDS you could painstakingly add more LEDS or swap them out for brighter LEDS. There could be a lot of guesswork determining if this or that LED was brighter than what is in the unit as built. It may just be easier to live with it as-is.

Need to know what the orange and white wire is


Hello... I am sorry to hear you are having problems. The orange and white wire on Pioneer units is the "dimmer" wire. Some vehicle applications allow for this connection and some don't. What this wire does is when you turn your headlights on at night, it will automatically dim the lights on your headunit so it won't be so bright. It is not a necessary connection for the player to work. Hope this helped! Good luck with your venture!

Hi I have just installed my now JVC KD-R616 and stumped on two issues, one is the orange wire with white stripe from the deck the install sheet says wire to car light control switch, what is its purpose?...


The orange light to the light control is usually for the face/display dimmer. When the headlights are on it tells the display to dim so as not to be too bright while driving. It can go to just about any interior light that is on when the headlights are switched on. Ashtray light is usually the easiest. As for the continuity on the constant/memory wire. It has to be constant with the key off as if connected directly to the battery. Turn the key off and check for a blank accessory location in the fuse box with a test light. If hooked to that, be sure to install an in line fuse in an accessible location. The black wire may very well be the memory wire from the original radio.
I hope I've helped. If so please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial.

I can't find the wiring diagram for a bd216?


red goes to a power source that activates when ignition is on,yellow goes to a permanant power source that doesnt shut off like cigarette lighter power,black is ground,if thers orange its a dimmer wire it makes display dull when headlights turn on,u dont need to hook it up it will just keep your display bright at night without it.blue wire goes to your amp if u have one signaling it to turn on,blue with white is for a power antenna if you dont got one dont worry about it.as for sides im not sure about this but white and grey wires are for the front and green and purple wires are for the rear

My Sony CDX-C680...


Hello greggerika,

It's possible that the "illumination" wire is not connected or connected improperly. It's also possible that the front panel electrical connections are not making proper contact. Remove the front panel and gently clean the contacts with a pencil eraser.

Also, the CDX-C680 allows you to select either green or amber illumination. One or the other may be defective. Try changing it. Press SHIFT - press "3" (set up) three times - press "5" (right arrow) to change the setting. Also check the setting for "dimmer". ON will result in a dimmed display at all times. AUTO will dim the display whenever the headlights are turned on (if the wiring is connected properly). OFF will result in the brightest display at all times.

Hope this helps.

Orange = Illumination


Some vehicles have an illumination signal that tells the stereo when your headlights are turned on so that it can dim the display (to help keep from being blinded by overly bright stereo displays at night). If you don't have that signal, don't connect the stereo wire to anything.

What is your power wired into? Are your head lights dim also? You may have a battery issue?
