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.

I got a pioneer car stereo model number DEH-P400UB and installed it in my vehicle. when i tried to take it out and place it in another vehicle... it wont turn on. what should i do?

Check your power to make sure you are getting power to the radio. Also, check to make sure you are getting a good ground. You may want to check all of the fuses in your vehicle.

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.

Will the pioneer deh p3100ub fit a 92 civic?

Yes, it should slip right in, but I recommend you buy the adapter for the wiring harness. Look here for details and instructions are pasted below:

1992-95 Models
See Figure 4
Removing the radio will require removal of the front part of the center console.
The original equipment radio has a coded theft protection circuit. Before beginning removal, be sure to know the code for re-installation. The code is erased whenever the battery is disconnected or the No. 32 (7.5A) fuse from the under hood fuse/relay box is removed. When power is re-connected, the word "CODE" will be displayed and will require entry of the 5-digit code for that particular unit.

WARNING All SRS wire harnesses are covered with a yellow insulation. Read the SRS precautions found in this section and install the short connectors as described.
  1. Disable the SRS system as described in this section.
  2. Remove the center instrument panel by removing the four philips screws on the top and sides.
  3. Disconnect the 4-pin connector from the cigarette lighter.
  4. Remove the two screws, then disconnect the 16-pin connector and the antenna lead.
  5. Carefully pull the radio/cassette player out.

To Install:
  1. Plug in the 16 pin connector and install the two retaining screws.
  2. Plug in the antenna lead, the cigarette lighter and carefully install the unit.
  3. Install the center instrument panel. Re-connect power to the car, and enter the 5-digit theft protection code for the radio/cassette player.
  4. Enable the SRS system.

Wiring. diagram for a pioneer DEH-P7000BT to a 2002 Acura 3.2 TL

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

Pioneer dehp3100ub.stock speakers wont work with unit?

If the vehicle has a premium sound package - you need to use the remote wire to turn on the factiry amplifier.
If you want to use the power from the radio for the speakers, you must buy and install a factory amplifier bypass harness.

My Pioneer DEH-P4700MP keep resetting when car switched off

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.
