My cigarette lighter in the car shorted out and the HU then flickered on and off, then just shut off. I replaced the fuse for the cig. lighter and radio, still nothing. I checked the fuse on the back of the HU and it was good.
The HU makes a quiet clicking noise and the red triangle at the top right hand corner of the face plate blinks every now and then.

Re: Is it Dead?
Hi it sounds like the cd mech is wurring so power should be ok.
try RESETTING the unit with the reset button, you will need a pen tor a pin to do this in most cases. if still no joy, then double check that you are getthing two pwer feeds to the radio
1 should always be there this is the perminant power feed. and the other4 should only be there when the ignition is on.

Sounds like the acc wire has been hooked to constant power. It needs to be hooked to a switched power source. A circuit or power wire that is only on when the car is. Sometimes that can be a cigarette lighter or a circuit in your fuse box. You will need a digital multimeter to find the circuit.
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: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_130DEH1700/Pioneer-DEH-1700.html?tp=5684
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.
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.
Disable the SRS system as described in this section.
Remove the center instrument panel by removing the four philips screws on the top and sides.
Disconnect the 4-pin connector from the cigarette lighter.
Remove the two screws, then disconnect the 16-pin connector and the antenna lead.
Carefully pull the radio/cassette player out.
Plug in the 16 pin connector and install the two retaining screws.
Plug in the antenna lead, the cigarette lighter and carefully install the unit.
Install the center instrument panel. Re-connect power to the car,
and enter the 5-digit theft protection code for the radio/cassette
i would say try running you 12 volt constant to the cig lighter fuse or somethings that always hot then run your switched to to the radio fuse and see if that helps you might need to get a new harness off of ebay if thay have one or just put a toggle switch on the radio to turn it off or on,
there should be an inline fuse that is on the back of the radio. i know I would hate to do this too but I would take the radio out check the fuse on the back of the radio along with the inline fuse in the cables. Also you need to check your connections mainly your power cables. Make sure that they are not touching ground and make sure that all of your wires are reinforced with electrical tape. Please Rate This As A FIXYA if this helps.
factory installed radio is usually fused at the car's fuse box. Check your owners manual (for the car) to see whewre it is, and look for a RADIO fuse, that should be what you are looking for for a factory head unit,
