Hello, I am trying to hook this unit up in my 91 Cadallic Deville. I have everything wired up other than my power antenna. There is a blue wire comming from the unit labeled system remote control. Do you know what this is for and do you have any idea how I can hook up my antenna? Thanks
DO NOT connect your antenna to the RED wire! The Blue/Remote wire is used for Power antenna's and or Amps. If you are hooking up more than 1 amp you need to use a relay to trigger your amps otherwise you might overload your head unit.
The system remote control is usually a blue wire on your decks harness and it is for an amplifier for a sub or other speakers. It sends power to the subs amp when the deck is turned on. You may need to find the wires coming off the antenna and splice them into the red power switching wire 12v on you decks wire harness. Good luck

Apparently, you have no power at the 12 volt battery/memory wire at the radio harness of the vehicle. This wire is white with blue in color. Also, based upon your description, you have connected the battery/memory wire and the accessory wire of the radio to the 12 volt accessory (switched) wire of the vehicle. This wire is white with red in color. Check the radio/ stereo fuse of the car. You may have blown the fuse during your installation. You have no memory at the radio because when you turn off the key, you lose all power to the radio. Also, I mentioned the wire colors just in case you used an aftermarket radio wiring harness. Make sure that the yellow from the Pioneer unit is going to the battery power source and, the red of the Pioneer is going to the switched power source.
When a head unit doesn't remember settings like yours, then the Yellow constant battery wire isn't hooked up correctly. This wire provides power to your unit constantly from the battery so that it can remember the settings and such. Your aerial not going up is the Blue power antenna wire. This wire will provide power so that when you turn your unit on, it powers the antenna to go up. Hope this helps!
Not to question you about the red being constant power but I have a pioneer deh-1600 car stereo and red is hooked to electric terminal controlled by ignition switch (on/off) and if your unit has a yellow wire that goes to constant power. The only problem with hooking up the red wire to constant would be if you happened to accidentally leave your player on it could drain the battery. Hope this helped a little. Good luck.
There are no subwoofer settings on the Pioneer DEH-2800MP.
You need to check the external power amplifier and the connections from the Pioneer and from the sub(s). If everything is plugged in and wired correctly, check the amp fuses, both on-board and the main power fuse (located in the amp positive lead usually near the vehicle battery).
a 12v + source from the battery (yellow wire) a 12v + switched with the key (red wire) a Ground (black wire)
then you need your four speakers hooked up, i'm unsure of the color codes on them but they are usually pairs i.e. green and green with black stripe for one speaker white with black stripe for another etc.
other wires such as illumination (orange) and power antenna (blue) are optional
the illumination (orange) you would connect to 12v + from a headlight switch and it would cause the unit to dim when you turned your headlights on
The power antenna (blue) is used, as the name implies to control a power antenna if you have one, or more commonly as the signal to turn an audio amp on (on the remote connection)
You can not connect this to an A/C voltage. The radio will not work. In fact it will destroy many internal parts. It must have a D/C voltage supply of about 14.4 volts.That is what it was designed for.
But if you like smoke and fire, it could be fun to watch (just kidding).
Seriously now, what you need is a D/C power supply that is rated for about 10 amps.
The accessory and remote wire does not need to be connected to anything if you are using it in your home. But it does need to be insulated from contacting anything conductive.
The negative ground wire (black) need to be connected to the negative (black) terminal of a power supply. the yellow and red wires are for the positive (red) terminal of the power supply. Then you just need the speakers to be connected and the antenna plugged in. You can use an old car antenna that still has the cord and jack connected to it for the antenna. The speaker wires are color coded in pairs, white and grey are front and the green and violet are rear speakers. The wire with the black stripe is the negative speaker wire and the solid color is the positive.
I hope this was helpful to you, and if it was a good rating like"fixya" is a great way for you to say thanks for the free advice.
