What color wire is the power alpine

Almost all car stereos have standard color codes for power, there are Yellow, Red and Black, where Yellow is the direct current from the battery of the car (this always have power on it so don't let it near anything metallic or will cause a short), the Red if for accesory power (this only have current when the key on the car is on accesory mode) and the black is Ground.

Red and Yellow cables need to have power at the same time to power the stereo on, so if you want to test your stereo put the yellow and red cables together on the positive terminal of your car battery and the black on the negative, this should turn on your stereo.

On my stereo the light lights up in the back and turn on when the car is on but when I put the face plate on the face plate doesn't work.

sounds like a bad connection on the faceplate however most stereo decks have two power sources one controls the main power and the second is a remote power source used for saving information while the car is off ex. Time and radio presets

hope this helps

My son took his jvc kd-s10 cd player from his car and put in my saturn vue. no power is noticed until i either push the disp button or the eject button. i don't know if the wiring is wrong.

The wiring is most likely wrong Or if correct then check the fuse box under the hood if the fuse for radio has become defective
Sometimes people get the wiring wrong way around, And only radio will work if headlights are turned on, This is because they got the positive wires wrong, As one is for power and one is to illuminate screen more when lights on as there normally used when dark.

I have the DEH-1200MP model super tuner 3 and it would not power up after battery died and was jumped. There is a fuse at the back of the stereo that I unplugged and plugged back in and then the stereo powered up. I had already checked all of the other fuses. Took me a while to figure this out.

NO memory in kenwood kdc-mp205

check your wiring in your vehicle to make sure that the yellow wire from the stereo gets "constant" power. It it what keeps your stereo's memory, and powers the audio amp in the stereo. If this wire is loosing power when you shut the key off in your car, you will loose all of your settings...bass, treble, tuner, clock, and also where you left off on your CD.

CDE-9845 is not turning on or doing anything.

The only way to know for sure is to see if it has voltage getting to it. You need a Voltage tester (DMM, testlight, etc...). There should be 12 volts on the yellow always and on the red wire when the Ignition/Accessory is on. If both are present then the radio probably got surged and will have to be replaced/repaired.
