You have your accessory wire (red wire) and remote ran together and the yellow (constant wire ran separately in the dash?

You need the red wire to so you can use accessory and to turn off your cd player when your vehicle turns off.

You need the yellow wire to keep all your settings stored. base/treble/time clock

Just a little clarification. Your amp turns on with the remote wire (blue) wire, if that is not hooked up you will get no power to the amp.

Here's the in-dash diagram to your vehicle at the bottom of this pdf.

You want to focus on N,O, and P

Do you happen to have an after market wiring harness? These can be bought from walmart for your vehicle. You just take the male end connect the colors together and plug end that goes to your cd player into the female end. Very easy to do.

You could also have one of these fuses out under your hood, that might cause you to lose power to everything.

as far as the remote wire a keyed power wire from under dash can be used its the same thing.if the remote wire is working it wont turn on your amp so are you sure thats not why your rcas dont work or have u hooked power to the remote on the amp.

My car battery died.when i put in a new my cd player stop working


If your radio is still working, then your power is OK. The Sony CD changer gets its power from the Sony Unilink cable. It is possible that it passed a power spike down to your CD player while hooking up your battery cables.

I just had a CDX-757MX just die a few days ago myself. My radio, amps, and other changers are still working. Could be an unfortunate coincidence.

When i connect my power wire to battery my deck cuts off and when i disconnect cd player works


This is your receiver going into speaker protection mode. this could be one of a couple of things based on what you have stated. The obvious would be that your amp is pushing too much power for your speakers. You can try a couple of things. 1st is check your watts for your amp and speakers and adjust your gain accordingly(may need to adjust how much your putting out). If it is turning off with the gain turned all the way down, then that's not the problem. Try disconnecting the RCA cables, then hook up to the battery and see if your amp comes on. If it does, you have everything hooked up right for the most part. Doing this will make sure your getting power to your amp.

If you get power with the RCA jacks unplugged, you might make sure that whatever speakers are hooked up to the amp are disconnected from the factory wiring. Those are some things to check based on what you wrote.. Could you be a little more specific with things like what kind of speakers and deck you have, how many speakers you are running, describe what happens when everything cuts off, etc.

Peugeot 406 cd player works when ignition is on but when engine is started cd player wont work. Radio is fine.


Just bought 2001 peugeot 406.The radio worked perfect but CD player not reading disk or operating.That was until I realised that the CD for driving safety will not allow you to put CD into it while driving or engine running.Switched off engine then switched it to 1st batt light position & CD worked perfectly.But when I then switched key off & then started it was back to not operating.I then realised that the CD player for safety will not operate when engine is running unless you let the CD start operating first pre engine fire then wait a little more time before starting .Now it should work properly though it will not allow even the passenger to change a disk while being driven. On disk change you have to go through the same start proceedure.Hope this will get your CD working.Sherlock ??

Jensen Amp and Sub


If you followed the instructions correctly, then the amp must be defective. This is sort of simple.

My generic suggestions:
You have the power, the ground, the outputs to the speakers, and then the input.

Make sure that none of the speaker wires are somehow being grounded. Make sure that nothing is shorted that feeds the speakers.

Kenwood KDC-MP202 sound turns off when headlights are turned on


just solved a similar problem on my car i bought a Cd/dvd player for my 2000 concord lxi i hooked it up and hooked a rear-view camera and it worked perfect but wen i turned the headlights on the cd player shuts of so i disconnected the orenge wire that came out of my cd player from the orange on the aftermarket harness then grounded the ping wire (rear con wire) it worked fine but i couldn't see any footage from the camera for that i bought a long red power wire and hooked it to the red camera power wire that hooked from camera to reverse light and took the other end of the new wire i bought and hooked it to the orange wire that came out of the cd player now every thing works fine. you probably dont have the right power to run both cd and head lights thats why you need constant power to run both just hook up an extra wire between a positive wire to the orange dimmer wire its simple;

ground to ground (black)
12+ positive to 12+ positive (red)
and an extra wire (usually a red 18 guage wire bought mine at walmart) to the dimmer wire from the back of the cd player (orange) edit.gif

Amp LED flashes on but right back off


This sounds like a problem with the power input to the amplifier; it's possible, but unlikely, that your CD player is causing it. Before you can do any real troubleshooting, you need a voltmeter. When your CD player is turned on, you should get a voltmeter reading of around 12 volts at the amplifier's remote terminal and B+ (power) terminal. If your main power wire doesn't show voltage, check for a loose or corroded connection at the battery or fuseholder, and try replacing the fuse (even if it looks okay). If there's no voltage on the remote wire, it may be pinched or shorted between the CD player and the amplifier, or the CD player may be faulty. If you get a good voltage reading on both wires, but the amp won't turn on, then you have a problem in the amplifier.
