Re: Connecting remote cable to other port from the car...

You can tap the amplifier's remote wire into the accessory power lead at the back of the head unit. On most head units this is a red wire. Doing this will make your amplifier turn on and off with the key switch, rather than the deck power.

My radio works but when i put on the cd changer it plays but no sound

Are you using an amplifier? If you are, it sounds like you are using the power antenna remote turn on (usually blue) instead of the amplifier remote turn on (usually blue/white). Leaving tuner mode when using the power antenna remote turn on turns the amplifier off.

I tried connecting a ipod cord in the back of the recievers ports and the volume can't be controlled by the reciever, is there a aux input option for this reciever or is it to old.

How did you "connect" an Ipod to the receiver? If you plugged in RCAs then you were probably plugging into the pre-amp outputs of the stereo. There is an aux option from pioneer (CDRB10) which plugs into the blue squarish plug on the back. I think its a CDRB20 if you ever wanted to add a CD changer as well.

How do you hook up your ipod through the rca cable hookups in the back without the radio still playing?

This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.

First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.

Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.

Car CD player plays but has no sound

Does your car have a premium sound system? Assuming that your cd deck is fine, try connecting your remote turn on wire from the sony to the corresponding wire on the car(if you bought a wiring harness, just match colors). Also some chryslers used a ground to turn on the amps.. a black wire with a female connector as well as a heavy ground ribbon cable... connect those 2 AND the ground to your stereo to enable the amplifiers.

Car stereo pre-out signal noise

Two things, a ground loop isolator in-line with the RCA's between the head unit and the first amp.....also a noise reducing capacitor ( $5 or$6 at an auto parts store) on the alternator 12v post will reduce or remove the hum.

Installing a pioneer stereo in a 1995 honda civic

I'm assuming that you're connecting to a wire harness that you've purchased and not directly to the wires which were plugged into the original Honda radio.

The black ground wire from the Pioneer can be connected to the ground wire on the car. You are correct on the blue/white remote turn-on wire as well - it can be connected to the blue power antenna with no harm. If you were installing any amps the blue/white wire would also go to their remote turn-on input.
