I’m attaching a wiring diagram which hopefully isreadable. I’ll also list the “where to”instructions for all of the other wires. It’simportant that several wiring steps be done in a particular order.

About the Memory Wire:

The memory wire is Yellow and should be connected to the +12 V power terminal (which isenergized at all times). First besure to connect the black ground (earth) lead to a metal surface of the car.

Important…
>>Before making connections, turn the stereo unit and carignition off to avoid short circuits.
>>Connect the yellow and red power input leads onlyafter all other leads have been connected.
>>The power antenna (aerial) control lead (blue)supplies +12 V DC when you turn on the tuner.


Hope this helps. Lemme know if you have more questions or would like me to email you acopy of the owner’s manual.

Thanks, and take care.

Gail :-)

    Sorry about the bogus paragraphs of format code. I typed your note/response in Word then cut/paste. The "bonus text" isn't apparent until you hit post/submit, and by then it's too late to fix. :-(

2001 nissan pathfinder se wiring diagram


I have a 2001 Nissan pathfinder and had the stereo changed. The original stereo had the feature of the controls on the steering wheel but when the stereo was changed that feature no longer worked. I had brought the car to a shop where they installed that stereo and the controls were not working but I didn't want to bring it back to them. I now have a Sony Stereo in it now and would like to get the controls on the steering wheel working again. Could you please tell me which wires are the ones that connect the steering wheel controls to the stereo.

MY DASHLIGHTS WENT OUT AND ITS NOT A FUSE. IT HAPPENED AFTER I HAD A STEREO INSTALLED ARE THJEY CONNECTED?


Who installed the stereo? A professional? Or you or a friend? Either way sounds like some wires touched something they shouldn't have! Take it back to where stereo was done and tell them to fix it.

Stereo wont stay on and only couple speakers work


on the back of the stereo you should have an rca inputs in the back, it should say either rear, subwoofer, or non-fade. all of these are acceptable, run rca's to the amp from the deck.
also on the deck in the wire harness is a blue wire with a white stripe.
hook a wire up to this and run it to the REM. terminal of your amp. this wire tells the amp to turn on when you turn on your key.
these are the only two wires you hook up the back of the stereo.
hope this helps

Will the sony CXSGT08HP fit a 2000 Ford Taures?


yes, however you will need the dash kit (approx. $80.00) and modification of the braces inside the dash behind the "radio" In the taurus, the radio is actually located in the trunk. Only the dials are up front. Most installers will charge extra for this car's "extensive labor" but it can be done.

Sony Home Stereo Fuse


When the wires touched, the output transistors overloaded before the fuse had a chance to blow. The outputs need to be changed. It is possible that the driver stage for the final outputs is bad also, but there is no way to know that without removing the bad outputs. Figure on $25-$45 in parts for this repair.
