    it could be a contributing factor... never never never (have i mentioned never) work on something electrical without removing the source of power... that actually goes for anything mechanical that has a power source

Pioneer DEH-P5800MP CD Player not powering on.

did you try the fuse behind the wireharness. if so check the yellow wire and the red one for power. also check if you have ground on it. if you want to make things simpler try to connect the black wire to the battery neg. and the yellow and red together on the positive of the battery and see if it turns on.

Every time i try to hook up my cd player to my golf cart it wont power on? i got the yellow wire in the back connected to the red wire in the back and then i got a red wire connected to the yellow and red...

this can be one of three things
1) the fuse on back of CD player could be blown
2) you need to push and hold the src/pwr button till unit powers on
as long as the yellow and red wire are attached to the positive battery wire you are good if the ground is to the battery ground and you try the first two steps i said and nothing happens........
3) ground the black wire from back of the CD player to any metal surface on the golf cart than try the first two steps again
it should power on if this is the case
hope i was able to help you

I cant get power is my harness missing wires?

Yes, your red wire is for ignition, yellow wire is for battery and black is ground. The red ignition wire is for the radio to turn off and on with the ignition. The yellow is always hot, for memory.

Player will not turn on

Power needs to be fed to 3 wires:
Yellow ; memory and main supply feed
Red: Accesories supply (comes in via ignition switch)
Black: Ground.
Did you forget either the yellow or red?

Pioneer system Query

usually red, black, yellow for the power.. the rest are for the accessories.. ie. speaker, optional amplifier power on trigger.

black goes to the ground or chassis.
red goes to ignition (so the head unit willl only power on when the ignition is in ACC or accessory)
yellow goes directly to the battery but fused.
