Power connected right, pops fuses in player

I changed fuses as suggested in this forum and when I reconnect power the player pops the new fuse. Bothy constant and ignition switch power are hooked up right. Sounds internal and is it worth fixing?

Re: Power connected right, pops fuses in player

HI Paul,

No one evidently wants to tell you that your Radio is shot. The circuits in the head units is not worth repairing. It is too minute and hard to do to the point it isnt worthy of attempt. I do not mean to be the harbinger of doom here. Just get a new head unit and this time dont get an Audiovox.

Dual dvd car stereo no sound

Check the fuses. There's one in your car's fuse panel (usually in the footwell be the hinges of the car door) & one on the back of the head unit. While you have the head unit out checking the fuse, ensure that the power wire is still connected securely and the ground wire has a firm, clean connection to the sub dash (clean metal, no paint). If this doesn't solve the problem, the unit may well have gone belly up. You will need a new one if that's the case. If you purchase a new one, stay away from Dual. It's garbage. I know they're super affordable, but you get what you pay for with that kind of stuff. Pioneer makes really good units and there priced reasonably too. Just a suggestion... Good luck!

CD player wont come on was doing weird things

You have your accessory wire (red wire) and remote ran together and the yellow (constant wire ran separately in the dash?

You need the red wire to so you can use accessory and to turn off your cd player when your vehicle turns off.

You need the yellow wire to keep all your settings stored. base/treble/time clock

Just a little clarification. Your amp turns on with the remote wire (blue) wire, if that is not hooked up you will get no power to the amp.

Here's the in-dash diagram to your vehicle at the bottom of this pdf.

You want to focus on N,O, and P

Do you happen to have an after market wiring harness? These can be bought from walmart for your vehicle. You just take the male end connect the colors together and plug end that goes to your cd player into the female end. Very easy to do.

Windshield wiper issue: Check C1002, 1003, and 1004 under your hood.

You could also have one of these fuses out under your hood, that might cause you to lose power to everything.

Let me know if you need more assistance =)

Connecting my cd stereo to 1990 Ford Taurus

since it worked before and you didnt change anything and now there is no power it looks like you blew a fuse when connecting wires. check the radio fuse on the door panel, and check the int. lighting fuse under the hood of the car. take both out and see if they are blown, if blown buy new fuses and replace.

heres the wiring diagram for a 1990 Ford Taurus:

Left Front (+) orange/lt green
Left Front (-) lt blue/white or Blk
Left Rear (+) pink/lt green
Left Rear (-) dk blue/ orange or Blk/Wht
Right Front (+) Wht/Lt green
Right Front (-) Dk green/ orange
Right Rear (+) pink/Lt blue
Right Rear (-) Tan/White
Lt green/yellow Hot at all times
Black - Ground
Yellow/Blk - Ignition
Lt blue/red - Acc
Orange/blk - Dimmer Lights
RED - Lights

** power

There is usually a fuse on the back of the unit. Did you check that? There may be a power supply issue to where ever you took power from? Maybe not a constant or "breaked" tap point. Go over the following site and see if it helps. If all else fails, the unit could be faulty. Go back for warranty.

Tuner does not work Sony CDX-L420V CD suddenly.

Try cleaning the connections on the faceplate and were the faceplate meets the unit, Make sure you disconnect the power first (pull the fuses) look carfully at the pins on the radio itself were the faceplate and the radio meet see if any are bent or out of place. I think what the other person was talking about fuses is there is two fuses on the radio and there will also be two fuses in the car. So there should be four fuses to check depending on your car. Good Look.

Car stereo problem

im not sure if its just newer cars only or most cars but some have whats called a courtesy fuse probley located under your hood. check that fuse. easiest way to locate that fuse is just by calling plymouth and ask, another way to check to make sure if your cd player works in that car is to connect your yellow constant wire with your red power wire and see if the player works if so you could probley leave it like that but when you turn off your car you would lose all your settings and such like the time setting therefore it is not recomended, give it a try good luck
