Question about Sony CDX-GT300 CD Player
I have a sony cdx-200 installed in my 1998 dodge ram.It worked fine till yesterday then i had to unhook battery to clean battery posts. after i hooked battery cables back up it wont work. it has came on twice while driving down road but when i go to adjust it the power goes off and wont come back on. what can i do?
I would remove the CD player and chek the connectons inside. Check the power wires (pink and Red/white Dodge colors) to make sure you have power. I know for a fact that the number one cause for Dodges to do this is because while the harness you bought to cnnect to the factory plugs HAS a black wire for ground, there IS NO Oposing wire. It's usually a braided silver wire or a thick black attached to te stock deck. Make sure you are not getting a ground through the antenna.
Let me know what you found out,

Tips for a great answer:
Trace the spark plug wires to the distributor; it will be at the back of the engine block, in a cramped space.
Disconnect the negative battery cable to the distributor and unhook the air cleaner tube. Unscrew or unhook the clamps holding the distributor cap in place, and unscrew the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor connector with a screwdriver.
Matchmark the distributor housing and the rotor for later realignment, as well as the distributor housing and the intake manifold. Unbolt the holding clamp and remove the distributor.
Set the engine at Top Dead Center (TDC) mark of the No. 1 cylinder compression stroke with a socket with breaker bar (long-handled ratchet).
Install the Ram distributor, replace the clamp and lightly tighten the bolt. The distributor part number is A1303801 from Parts Train, but numbers differ from different manufacturers. Order using the model, year and engine size.
Turn the distributor in its seating so the rotor lines up with the No. 1 cylinder mark on the Camshaft Position (CMP) sensor. Bolt the clamp bolt to 200 foot pounds (22.5 Nm).
Reattach the CMP sensor connector and use the screws or clamps to replace the distributor cap. Connect the air cleaner tube and the negative battery cable
