Could be. you should test the voltage on the yellow wire and red wire. Both should be 12 volts with the car on.

Replaced stereo in 2004 Ford F-150: used a ford wiring harness with all wires connected correctly, but no power to stereo??

Check for a inline fuse, if no fuse is found, fit a power wire from the ignition switch to the power connection on the stereo via a inline fuse.

2001 Stratus Coupe. new battery and starter. engine wont crank when i turn the key. also no dash lights

You need to clean all the batt. and starter solenoid connections.
make sure they are tight
make sure to clean batt neg wire at body connection
check your fuse link to starter from battery,
a 6 inch section of thinner wire designed to burn out to protect starter. this is why you can jump starter you bypass the blown fuse link.

BCM Replace/install aftermarket stereo trouble

you have burned out your large box fuses under the hood and, possibly a fuseable link or, two check them
next time connect the hot/red wire only to an inline properly rated fuse connected to the battery positive lug
the library or, a dealer will have your car's schematic
And use wirenuts to connect wires not crimp connectors

Put an aftermarket stereo in my 2006 nissan altima stereo turns on and works but it blows my 10 amp taillamp fuse. makes my ac knob lights turn off my gearshifter indicater turns off as well foglamps and...

The problem is bad wire connections, check the connections you made, if you don't understand the diagrams go to an expert.
You can cause major problems if you keep trying and doing it wrongly.
If you know what you're doing, if everything is ok and the problem persists try the same stereo in another car to check if the problem is that.

Car stereo help

There are some tests you can perform for checking the stereo. Yes, you are right, there is a yellow and red wire. Yellow constant power, red is switched throught the ignition. During the installation, you may have blown a fuse. A bigger fuse is not needed, stick with the same size if you find a bad fuse. Hook the red and yellow wire together for TESTING PURPOSES to one or the other of the hot wires in the vehicle. This will also test to see if you have a bad fuse. If the stereo powers up in one or the other power connections in the car and works, you have a blown fuse. I have seen some fuses be located under the hood of the car near the car battery. Hope this helps, Bob

My stereo wont turn on

try replacing the fuse for the radio. it will look clould/blackish and the little metal piece running in it wont be connected. It should be underneath the steering wheel and should be labled. if you have trouble finding it, consult the manual.
