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.

My car radio is not switching on.the name of my car radio is a sony xr ca440x


For the most part, all car stereos, including the Sony XPLOD car stereo will have the same basic wiring with the exception of some additions for connecting to after market amplifiers. They all have a wire for the memory which is continuous power and one for main switchable power. There will be one main ground and a speaker ground. The rest of the wires are for the speakers. These are usually paired as the same color except the wire with the black stripe is the speaker ground. The easiest way to hook up a new radio is to get a pigtail harness for the Sony XPLOD from any store that sells radios. This is a direct hook up simplifying installation. The pigtail has the proper connection to simply plug in to the original connector and the other end to the new radio.

first of all, is your radio factory or aftermarket? If its factory the you probably have a bad ground or a short in the radio power to antenna. If its after market, then the remote antenna wire is hooked up wrong. Check to make sure the antenna wire is hooked up to the antenna. Good luck

check for proper ground and check to see if you accidently poped a fuse while connecting the wires.Check to see if there are any in line fuses on the radio wiring and see if they're blown.if not, hook the radio up directly to a car battery(with a fuse in line on the power side) and if it doesnt work then its a problem with the radio, if it does, its a problem with the wiring.
