No power to recently installed after market radio

I am pretty sure I have all the wires hooked up properly but I get no power to the radio. I have checked the wired with a amp meter and get no response. How can I get power to these wires??
Thanks

Hi,

first check if the fuse is blown . If yes replace it. then make sure that your car batteries gives you a minimum of 12 V and 8 amp current to turn on the unit. also the red terminal should be connected to ignition and yellow to battery. black terminal to negative of battery. you will definitely get the result.

Assuming that you checked the fuse, is there any wires in the area that are not connected and can you check them for power? If not, ground one side of your meter and take a wire and wrap around the other lead (set your meter for dc voltage) splice or wrap a straight pin onto that wire coming off the meter. Turn ignition on and stab wires until you get a voltage reading. The best wire would be the color wire coming from the radio fuse holder. But at this point you need power so which ever wire that gives you power splice it to power input of the radio.

I'm getting power to it but the screen isn't coming on and it's not putting out any sound.


how do you know you're getting power to it? did you check for power at the conector? make positively sure you've got a good ground and that it's hooked up right. and check the fuse in the back of the radio, and in line with the wiring.

KDC MP242 faceplate will not light. I have the unit run directly through the car vehicle battery for power. The CD player will accept and eject a disk, so I know the unit is getting power. However, I...


Im not sure if this is gonna fix your problem because im not exactly sure what you mean when you say you ran the player directly to the battery....but if the faceplate is not lighting up then it is possible that you may have not connected some of the wires properly. Some head units come with illumination wires which I believe are usually orange and that could fix the problem of the faceplate not lighting up....I hope that you are not actually running it straight to your battery..like under your hood, straight to your battery. I would imagine that you have purchased the proper wire harness and have matched the wires properly in the dash to the radio harness. If you do not have all of the wires hooked up and the harness plugged in to the radio and ready to go like your gonna put it in the dash to bolt it in then do that. Hook everything up properly with the wires and the harness so its like its ready to be bolted in and then test it...if the faceplate is still not lighting up then you may need to bring it somewhere to have it done professionally or if you are confident you are doing everything properly then it could be a faulty screen. I can add that I have installed many radios and had have lots that I have not needed a use of that orange illumination wire for.....its pretty straight forward just matching the colors and connecting them...but if you have never done it then you should probably take it somewhere, just not sure if you have ever done it before. Hope this was helpful to you.. :) Good Luck!

How to connect a pioneer super tuner to a 91 honda accord


With a DC voltage tester, check the two power leads for 12+ volts and proper operation, and be sure the unit is properly grounded.

The two power leads are,

1.Constant feed: which should be connected to an un-switched power source that delivers continuous
power to the units memory.

2.Switched feed: which should be connected to a switched power source controlled by the vehicles ignition switch.

Before installing in dash check unit for proper operation.

Good luck

Wiring problems?


http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/kdcmp238.pdf

There are no illumination wires on this deck, so the Orange and orange/wht are not used on the wiring harness. Orange wire is NOT for memory. Yellow wire is +12VDC Constant for memory.

If you hooked up the 12Vdc to the orange wire, your fuse for your dashlights have blown. Check your cars fuse panel for a blown fuse.

The orange wires are sending a signal out to radios with illumination circuts. You just sent a 12VDC signal upstream and it collided with the Cars signal and blew the fuse.

Tape off the orange wires, and all will be fine after changing the fuse.

Pioneer head unit plays in accesory mode, but not when vehicle is fully started


he tapped into starter wire instead of accessory. Remove radio and verify the switched power (red) wire is properly hooked up to an accessory wire that stays on after vehicle is started.
I believe the wire is white/black behind the radio. Check with a voltmeter to be sure.

for the wire codes to that vehicle.
