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.

There should be a fuse on the radio. If not check any fuses inside the vehicle; normally by the driver kick area. If this doesn't help, I guess you know the rest.

I was hooking up a stero in my 2000 cadillic deville when a spark occured now the system is completely dead

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)

I want to know how can I play my iphone through my kenwood car radio.

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.

The fan on my 2004 SAAB 93 convertible will not shut off.

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.

Stero not coming on

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.
