Checking connections and ground wire

I'm just checking all the wires because when I hit a bump I get static in one or more of the front speakers so I thought it was my ground but I'm not sure. Also on my subs I've got the wires going to the amp plugged into the cables that say non fading is that right?

Last night I was playing a CD and hit a bump and the CD quit playing and the word PROTECT started flashing and now I can't get anything to play or get that PROTECT off there.


Check wiring behind the radio itself, also check speakers and wiring for them. When a radio or an amplifier goes into the protect mode it is protecting itself from an electronic short. If it turns on properly and has been for some time it is not the the power wires, but may very well be a bad speaker or a connection to that speaker.

Hook up radio to jeep cherokee


buy a 12 volt lamp tester (like a screw driver)check the wires when car ignition switch is turned on ,connect the wire side of tester to metal ground of ur car which supposed to be negative and other side of tested pin to the wires jack of ur car which is for radio connection previously,find out 2 connection points which are positive terminals one lights when igni switch is turned on the other one is permanent power terminal.now there are three wires of ur new radio one is black which should be connected to ground or metal body of ur car negative terminla and yellow connected to permanet power terminal and red one should be connected to power turned on with the swith which is called switched power
.now try to find out other four groups of terminal two for front speaker two for rear speaker each speaker has two wires ,can find out the connections by connecting a dry battery cell to the wires to identify which wires of speakers sound when battery is connected ,front pair of wires is for front left grey pair is for right front green pair of wires of ur new stereo is for left rear speaker and purple or blue pair is for right rear speaker
.these colors are globally known .the wires of speakers must not mixed with each other
black is for ground negative red is witched power and yellow for permanent power.
donot use long screws to fit ur new radio .Best of luck

I have an old Chevy and I'm trying to hook up my Kenwood kdc-138 stereo. I have the red wire connect to the red ignition wire and black wire to ground. I have the yellow wire hokoed up to the ignition...


The fact that your speakers have only one wire, indicates that they are the old negative ground type. You will have to buy new speakers, or try and connect the negative wires of your speaker wires from the radio to the car body (chassis) and try that. Normally you will get a bit of static when you start your engine

Over the bumps sound cuts off


are you listing to cd or everything? do you have amplifiers? i found that when my pre outs were going bad my hole radio would cut out when i hit bumps. also some decks dont do well on bumps with their cd players. maybe try straping all of the wires in the back to a sable source on the car to reduce the stress on the plug ins when hitting bumps.

Static thru speakers at mid-high volume all the time


Your head unit may not have a common ground for the speakers. If you have two wires for each speaker coming from the head unit, rewire the speakers for a floating ground, that means two wires per speaker, or use a floating ground adaptor. These radios now a days are NOT like the radios in the hay days of care audio. If you already did not cause any damage to your unit, you certainly will if you continue to use it the way it is hooked up now. Good Luck
