their should be a blue and blue white wire on the Sony radio. cut the blue wire and then connect the car side to the blue white wire and tape off the blue wire that is on the radio side.
the blue wire only turns on when the radio is activated. the blue white wire is activated when the radio is turned on.
please rate my solution.

I need a wiring diagram to hook up a new radio.


First you will need to get a wire harness for your specific make, model & year of car. This will interface the car wiring plug to your new clarion headunit.

Next you will connect the wires from your purchased wire harness to the wires of your Clarion Headunit. Using **** connectors with a wire crimper is the best way to do so.

Here is a wire color coding guide for the wires on your Clarion headunit:

P o w e r Memory (+12v Constant) Yellow Ignition (+12v Switched) Red Ground (-) Black Dimmer Pink/White (Alpine only) Power Antenna Blue Amplifier Turn-on Blue/White Phone Mute Light Blue (Sony only) S p e a k e r s Right Front (+) Gray Right Front (-) Gray/Black Left Front (+) White Left Front (-) White/Black Right Rear (+) Violet Right Rear (-) Violet/Black Left Rear (+) Green Left Rear (-) Green/Black

Hello my car is equipped with a Sony CDX-L410X head unit and i want to be able to connect my ipod directly to the head unit. the head unit does not have an aux or usb port on the front does it have an...


Hello! Maybe I can help with your question. This model headunit does not support ipod control. It does not have rear or front inputs via 1/8mm jack that you could use the headphone output. You only have a couple of options here. First would be to purchase a wireless fm modulator that would transmit the ipod output through your cars antenna. (i.e. set the radio to 88.1, 88.3, etc) These can be purchased at Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. The only other option would be to replace the headunit with a compatable unit. We sell a Kenwood for $139 that has a front USB port as well as the aux input. The USB on this unit reads droid phones and ipod. That model number is KDC-248U. Hope this helped! Good luck with your venture!

How to wire a sony cdx-gt640ui in a 1999 dodge intrepid...I get sound with the tuner, but no sound with cd, aux, and usb. I'm assuming its only an incorrect wiring setup...


instead of used the blue wire on the Sony head unit to the car wiring harness use the blue/whit wire

  • Blue - powers on only when am/fm is active
  • Blue/White - powers on when when radio is on am/fm/cd/ ect.

I have a factory radio fitted in my car but there is no cd changer installed, how much will it cost me to buy and have another fitted


The cost of a new head unit varies and depends on you.
in addition you will need a wire harness, a faceplate for fit around head unit and in car about $20-30 a piece, an antenna adaptor about $10. Places like futureshop will install for free with purchase of new headunit. It is impossible to give a good amount because the price of labor and headunit varies.

Subwoofer out problem


Thats an installation error. I'm almost 100% sure whoever hooked up your amplifier hooked the amp turn on to your power antenna wire. If there is no amp turn on wire, the accessory wire will do.
