Re: no power

My guess is that when you pushed the player into the dash, you pinched a power wire, resulting in a blown fuse. Check the vehicle's fuse box. Most vehicles have at least two fuses that provide power to the radio, though they may not all be labeled as radio fuses. You may need to check all the fuses in the vehicle, including any fuse box under the hood.

I need to know how to install a cd player in my 1997 jeep wrangler sport.

My suggestion would be to buy a wiring harness and a dash mounting kit. After that unscrew or pull out the console/dash part thats around your factory deck. Then unscrew the bolts/screws holding the factory one in place. Remove it. Plug the wiring harness into the factory wire plug. Pull harness wires through the mounting kit. Attach the corresponding colored wires from the harness to your new deck. Slide your deck into the mounting kit and secure it in place. Most decks have little prongs that you can pry up to **** up against the mounting kit so it wont slide out without pushing those down (makes it more secure and harder to steal). Place deck with mounting kit into area factory deck was. Put the screws/bolts back into place tightly. Place console/dash part back on. You will need the mounting kit (99% of new decks are smaller than the factory). Wiring harness is optional but recommended.

I installed my new aftermarket CD player on my 1999 Pontiac Grand AM today but as I was putting into the car, the yellow power wire sparked and it wouldn't work. So I figured I blew out the CD player but...

sounds like you have melted the ill. wire into the 12 volt constant somewhere in the wiring harness. You have a few options you can fix it by tracing down power wire behind the dash seperate the 2 wires and tape them back, but that involves taking out the dash to trace them. You could replace the whole harness which again requires taking apart the whole dash and is expensive, or you could run the power wire down to the constent on your cigerette lighter. Find a wiring diagram or test the wires to see which is which. NOTE: always unhook the battery when you are installing a new stereo because the constants are just that a contant 12 volt feed. but to test the cigerette lighter wires you will need to leave the key off and battery on gound your meter to something and which ever wire gives you voltage is the one you want.

How do I know if a new/used car cd player will fit?

yes.......... just buy a mounting kit for your car and a wire harness for your install just unplug factory radio and clip the harness on to factory plugs that you just unhooked from factory radio now just attach the same colour to colour wires from your new deck to the harness......mounting kit comes with instructions
(make sure to buy WIRE HARNESS & MOUNTING KIT for your car) and your install should take less than a hr to do
have fun

Pioneer DEH 1700 not working now

I'm guessing that you wired the 2 units together including the speakers? the 2 units may be of different potentials and can't be wired together like that...they would need diodes or a relay to isolate one from another.. first you need to see if you toasted each of these by separating the wiring and trying them separately...just a thought

Chevy Tahoe radio wiring problems

I had the same problem and here's what fixed it. By default, I did not connect the blue/white striped remote wire to the harness. Apparently there is an amp somewhere in the vehicle I did not know about. After looking at the factory wiring and the aftermarket harness, I noticed that the remote wire was used and I connected it with the remote wire on the harness and everything came up and worked perfect.

Wiring diagram

First, goto a store and buy a snap in wire harness and a mounting kit. There are wire diagrams in the packaging. Wire your wire harness into the radios wire harness (everything is color coded). Follow the intructions to install the mounting kit. It should tell you what screws to remove from your dash and so forth. Just remeber were everything goes. Next, after you remove the old radio, snap in you wire harness to the cars wire harness. Then, test the radio to see if it powers up and all speakers are working. Lastly, put you radio in your dash, and put everything back togeather. The number one rule in installation is take your time. If you rush, you will brake something.

No power to CD Player

Hi Allenr,
The red wire should light the test light all the time.
The yellow wire should light the test light only when ignition is on.
the black wire should be tied to the body of the car. Red and yellow should be only wires with power to light test light,
you have blown fuse if the red wire is not lighting the test light.
