SOURCE: kenwood kdc 3011 rests its self every time i turn the car off

This means that the power lead you connected the red and yellow to is a switched live and each time you turn off the ignition the power goes off and therefore resets. to fix this problem you need to connect the yellow to a permanent 12v supply that stays live when you turn off the ignition.

SOURCE: Yellow Wire has no power

Your stock radio should have had a wire that does this. It may not be yellow so look up the wiring diagrams for your car. If you can't find it by doing that, then look up a diagram of your use box. Sometimes there's a diagram on the back of the fuse panel cover or somewhere around there that tells you what fuses are from what. You can then run a new wire if you have to.

SOURCE: every time i try to hook up my cd player to my

this can be one of three things
1) the fuse on back of CD player could be blown
2) you need to push and hold the src/pwr button till unit powers on
as long as the yellow and red wire are attached to the positive battery wire you are good if the ground is to the battery ground and you try the first two steps i said and nothing happens........
3) ground the black wire from back of the CD player to any metal surface on the golf cart than try the first two steps again
it should power on if this is the case
hope i was able to help you

The Metra part number 70-1763 seems to be the correct one for your vehicle. Hope this helps.

Hi i have one of your radio units in my 04 range rover but i have to set my mobile up to your unit every time i get in the car, is there a wire i have to connect to a constant 12v live.


Yes, the yellow wire needs to be on a "hot at all times wire". The yellow one is for memory in the radio. You can connect it to any power wire under the dash. It uses very little power and amperage.

Radio wiring code for 1987 mercedes benz 300. With aftermarket radio the windows switch ligths blinks and have no instrument ligths.


Hi, the aftermarket stereo does not use the illumination wire. You must tape that wire off (purple/gray). That wire is either connected to the wrong place or is touching chassis ground and causing your instrument lights to dim.
Connect the stereo's red wire to the car's black/yellow wire; and connect the stereo's yellow wire to the car's red/white wire.

Installing aftermarket Kenwood stereo on 1991 Subaru Legacy. The subaru stock wiring does not have a red ignition wire. Can i simply connect the kenwood ignition wire to the Accessory +12v (Yellow/red)?...


Hi, according to my source, there should be an accessory wire that is blue with a yellow stripe. If your is yellow/red, that's fine. You actually should prefer an accessory wire to an ignition wire as there may be less static on the accessory wire. Just make sure the wire does not have power when the key is off. Don't use the illumination wires--they are not needed for the aftermarket head unit and should be taped off.

You are losing the permenant 12VDC on the Radio. This is the thick yellow wire from the radio loom, it has to be connected all the time to 12VDC.

We cant find the power cable in our rover 420 sdi to re-wire a new stereo..the blocks have been cut off the stereo we brought so no clue as to wats wat and no wire diagram on top of stereo


If its a aftermarket stereo, the red wire is ignition, yellow wire is constant 12 volts, & black wire is ground. The speaker wires should be purple + & purple w/ black stripe - / white + & white w/ black stripe - / green + & w/ black stripe - / gray + w/ black stripe - /....then blue is for power antenna. Thats most aftermarket radios, some have orange for a dimmer but it depends on the brand.

Have you tried connecting different wires together ? i think the speaker wires are white, blue, purple, and brown in most cars make sure you hook up the positive to positive and negative to negative ..... negative will have a black chopped up line all the way down the wire. Hope this helped
