Re: car stero doesn't come on
You have it wired wrong. With the fuse out it is like disconnecting the wire, thus removing the fault. Be glad it is shutting down. It is protecting itself from damage and electrical overstress. Trace the wire, my guess is it is a power wire that is grounding. Check all of your wiring again.

Hold down power button un till it shuts down,normally works if that doesn't work take out ur battery and un plug mains adapter, if its a desk top just un plug it and leave it when u re start keep pressing F8 then select return ur comp to a earler time this will sort it out
2 choices turn the comp over un plug the battery leave about 2 minits. then plug back in and try again . If that doesn't work then when it starts 2 boot up press F8 several times it will ask normal start or select last known good configuration & select it . if that doesn't work have u aback up disk insert the 4 th disk and boot from that insert tha disck turn off comp and re start it will come up boot from disc press any key yes thats shold b it
Afternoon, the stereo has a fuse, which has blown. They are usually found on the positive side of the wire for the main power to stereo , if not that one, it is the fuse inside it. The ones I have fixed are very tiny, not standard size. Next time, disconnect the battery or put tape over the ends of the wires. good luck. You are not the first to do this and you certainly will not be the last so do not feel too bad. (Australia)
Well depending on the model of your stereo you could either connect with blue tooth or with a usb cable. Some stereo's have a mini jack on the front of them you could plug into. If your stero desn't have any of these options then you can buy a variety of FM transmitters that connect to the iphone and transmits the signal to a certain FM frequncy like 89.5 or something like that. Just google Iphone accessories or take a look at your local electronics place. Also google the model number of your stero and you should be able to get some info on your stero and the options that it has.
I would suspect that the cooling fan relay ( in a relay / fuse box under the hood) is stuck. There are 2, a high and low speed relay. Pull one and see if the fan goes off. Once you have identified the culprit, see if there is an identical relay in another location that you can swap into place to verify the problem is fixed.
What kind of car do you have? This can make the difference. Many cars with small engines (eg. Geo Metro) simply do not generate enough power to operate the radio. Other times the car can generate enough power to support the radio, but when you plug something into the cigarette lighter/power outlet the radio shuts off because the car isn't powerful enough to handle both. The first thing you need to do is to make sure that the car's electrical output is sufficient to operate the radio, after that it would be a good idea to make sure that all of the wires are connected properly.
when i take out my key,, everything is lit up.. and music playing.. but when i open the door.... i get out... all things going in the car shuts off... I would suggest.. turn off a/c,,,, stereo, etc.. before you get out of the car..until you can get to the dealer and have them check that door connection to turn things off...
