Pioneer DEH-225 Car Audio

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

When playing cds in my sony cdxgt500 the sounds come throught the door and rear speakers fine, but not through the subs. everything works as it should while playing the radio.


Hello.... it sounds like you have the remote wire for the amplifier hooked to the solid blue wire behind the radio. You need to hook to the blue/white wire behind the radio. What happens is that the solid blue wire turns on the power antenna when you are listening to the radio and it turns off (lets the antenna down) when you listen to a cd. There should be a blue/white wire that is the amplifier turn on wire that will stay on as long as the head unit is on. Hope this helped!

Hi I'm having a few issues with my deh 2100 head unit in my VY commodore. I installed it myself with the right wiring harness but the head unit doesn't remember settings or band settings. Also when the...


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!

I HAVE A NEW PIONEER AVIC-710BT THE AM/FM WORKS FINE HOWEVER WHEN I INSERT A CD NO SOUND FROM THE SPEAKERS


chances are, you hooked up the wrong blue wire... the power antenna wire (blue) is hooked up to the amp turn on wire... so while the radio is on its sending the signal to the amp to play and when the cd player is on it shut off... swap the blue wires and everything should be dandy...

I have a 1988 ford t bird i bought the wiring kit and installed the after-market stereo and everything works expect the sound. and i ve tried other stereos and double checked the wiring and still no audio.


Check under the passenger's seat for a factory amp. If the blue wire on the aftermarket head unit (accessory/antenna) supply isn't hooked into the power line for the factory amp. You'll get nada. It's usually a bump in the carpet if it's not visible. Look for a spare wire in the dash that originally went to it.

I need wiring color coding 4 pioneer deh 2050mpg? i know red is constant power.


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.
