Question about Sony MDX-CA580 MiniDisc Player
Ive just installed thid unit when the ignition is on position 1 the stereo works fine however after i start the engine i cant get any sound i could do with the cable colour codes (which colour cable does what?)is i dont have the instructions. hope someone can help
Red - switched power (hot when key is on)
yellow - constant power (hot at all times - depending on the vehicle, i've used a direct battery connection, but isn't recommended)
black - ground
blue - power antenna or amplifier 'REM' wire
the other's, i'm working off of old memory....
purple - rear right
green - rear left
white - front right
gray - front left
wires with black stripes are ground, and without are hot
- if you're working on an older car, it sounds like your red and yellow are connected to the same power source. if this is the case, the time will always be resetting.
- if it's a newer vehicle, AND the time is not resetting, the red wire is connected to the wrong source. if the time and stations stay programmed after it shuts off, the yellow wire is correct.
