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.

I am having the exact same problem with my iPhone 3GS and the 50wx4. I upgraded to a new software version and am getting the same messages. It's very frustrating. I read on the apple forum that if you turn the iPod/iPhone off by holding down the top buttton and home button at the same time, and then plug it into your car stereo whilst still off then the 2 devices will reconfigure (the iPod should come on when you plug it into the stereo). This did not work for me but did work for some others in the forum, worth a try.
your best bet is to buy a chiltons book for your car from an auto parts store. also i might add: reconnect your wires to the factory plugg you cut off and buy a wiring harness from a car stero installer or radio shack for your car it will automaticaly adapt your original harness (which your having trouble with) to a standard wiring setup for an aftermarket stereo. then its all about maching colors :)
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.
Firstly, lay all 3 speakers face down next to each other. Note the connections +- +- +-. The first + will go to the amplifier. The next terminal(-) will be connected to the center speaker(+). Take the center speaker (-) and connect to last speaker (+). The last terminal(-) will go to amplifier. Please note that your amplifier has a bridge section which is normally the first + and the last- on the two channels. Connect your woofers on the bridge.
