Re: Power has to reset with each restart
It sounds as though you may have the constant and switched power connections reversed. The yellow wire from the Pioneer head unit has to be connected to a constant power source, and the red wire has to be connected to a key-switched power source. Assuming that both are currently connected to different wires, try reversing them and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise you'll need to get a voltmeter and test the factory wires for voltage.

Apparently, you have no power at the 12 volt battery/memory wire at the radio harness of the vehicle. This wire is white with blue in color. Also, based upon your description, you have connected the battery/memory wire and the accessory wire of the radio to the 12 volt accessory (switched) wire of the vehicle. This wire is white with red in color. Check the radio/ stereo fuse of the car. You may have blown the fuse during your installation. You have no memory at the radio because when you turn off the key, you lose all power to the radio. Also, I mentioned the wire colors just in case you used an aftermarket radio wiring harness. Make sure that the yellow from the Pioneer unit is going to the battery power source and, the red of the Pioneer is going to the switched power source.
There's a "P" before the 6000UB right? This is the only installation manual i could find, i'm pretty sure it's the one u need. Now for the wires that connect to the car, you need to go down to either wal mart or any audio installation shop and get the installation kit for your 2002 Acura TL. It has to be vehicle specific or else it won't work, but you need this in order for a smooth installation. All you have to do is match up the same color wires and connect. Good luck...just copy and paste the link below
There is a connector but it is not like the connector used in the newer 1996 OBD2 cars, your year uses OBD1, here is how you check for codes in this car.
Acura OBD1 Codes Retrieval
Acura vehicles 1986-95 obd1 code retrieval
There are a few different ways to retrieve the codes for "check engine light" for Acura vehicles. One method is to use a led light (sometimes 2 led lights) on the computer or controller box itself. If it has 2 led lights, the color is red and amber. The red is used for flashing the codes whereas the amber is used for adjustment. If you have only a single led light indicator, then that is used for flashing the code.
The controller box can be found by lifting the carpet of the passenger side front foot well or floorboard. You can see the led lights without removing the controller. On other models, you can find the controller under the driver or passenger front seat.
The second way to get the code is using a jumper wire on the diagnostic connector located on the kick panel at the front passenger side. You then watch the codes being flashed at the dash panel after you turn the key on. To read the code being flashed is easy. Example: Code 23 is 2 long flashes followed by 3 short flashes. A longer pause separates the next code that follows.
Here are Acura vehicles 1986-95 general codes:
Code 0 Electronic control unit (ecu) Code 1 02 (oxygen) sensor Code 3 and 5 map sensor Code 4 Crank angle sensor Code 6 Coolant temperature sensor Code 7 Throttle angle sensor Code 8 Crank angle sensor (TDC) Code 9 Crank angle sensor (CLY) Code 10 Intake air temperature sensor Code 12 EGR system fault Code 13 Atmospheric pressure sensor Code 14 Electronic air control valve Code 15 Ignition output signal Code 16 Fuel injector fault Code 17 Vehicle speed sensor Code 21 Spool solenoid valve Code 22 Valve timing oil pressure switch fault Code 23 Knock sensor Code 41 Oxygen sensor heater fault Code 43 Fuel supply system
THERE IS NO FUEL PUMP RESET BUTTON ON YOUR VEHICLE.PULLING YOUR BATTERY CABLE WILL DO NOTHING BUT MAKE YOU HAVE TO RE -INSTALL YOUR ANTI-THEFT RADIO CODE,TO AHVE A RADIO AGAIN.AND RESET YOUR CLOCKS. CPUBUGS IS TAKING A GUESS WITHOUT KNOWING ANYTHING ABOUT AN ACURA. IF YOU ARE HAVING FUEL ISSUES THE CAR HAS A PGMFI MAIN RELAY UP UNDER DRIVERS DASH AREA(BASICALLY WHAT WOULD BE AN OLD SCHOOL FUEL CUT RELAY)THAT TEND TO GO BAD ON THESE CARS.IT WILL BE A 2"X2"X3" GREY/BLACK SINGLE CONNECTOR BOX DIRECTLY UP UNDER DRIVERS DASH AREA.MOUNTED ON A METAL ONE BOLT BRACKET.THIS IS WHERE I WOULD START IF NO FUEL SITUATION. GOOD LUCK ,JOEL
Did you use a harness to connect the wires?
Could be the power line (red) is connect to the ACC (Accessory) orange line, so every time you switch off the vehicle the power to the stereo is interrupted.
