I have a sauna. The sauna manufacturer used a power converter and installed a 12V car radio in this sauna. It has a 5amp fused hot lead and a black ground. I am replacing this radio with one that will take my iPad to USB port. But the power leads are different. New Pioneer DEH-X3500UI has a constant power yellow wire that is hooked up to the battery+ (usually) and a red wire that is to be hooked up to the accessory side of the starter switch (usually) and then a black wire ground that should be connected to a metal part of the engine. This wire harness has a 10amp fuse vs the 5amp fuse on the one I'm replacing. . .how should the wiring go with the three wires on the new system and the two wires allocated in the sauna? Appreciate the help.

SOURCE: we had a clarion reciever

As long as you have connected the ground(black) try adding one wire at a time to the live(red). If possible try connection each wire one at a time to the power line and then both together. If nothing has blown(fuses) and the unit starts working then you can try by trial & error method the remaining wires. You should be able to figure out which wire is required and if there are any extra wires like cellular phone(mute) and then decide whether to connect them or keep them open.....sodeep

Any trick to power up radio? Radio has 12 V connected and will not turn on


There should not be a "trick" to getting the radio to work. Make sure that the power connection is actually sending 12v. Also verify that the ground is good, that can cause issues. If possible, connect another 12v device to the power and ground and see if that one works.
If so, there may be a fuse on the radio that is blown. There are often fuses inside the case, near the power supply. If you are comfortable doing it, open the radio and see if you can find a fuse and verify that it is good. If not, take it to a radio shop and have them check it.

How to install KDC-252U in a 2000 Toyota Tacoma two-door


Check the fuse box in the engine compartment and look for the interior illumination fuse. Before you replace it you will need to unplug the radio harness and check the new unit's memory lead, the switched 12 volt lead, and the Ground wire. Somewhere one or two of these have been either connected incorrectly or the wires were pinched when the dash was reassembled.


Also check the fuse in the new unit's harness and make sure it is ok. Here are the basic power wires in the Tacoma...yellow is 12v constant, red is accessory (turns on with key),and black is ground.
If there is a blue wire, it needs 12 volts when the car is running and the radio is turned on. Check your new unit's wiring diagram for the power antenna or amplifier turn-on lead and connect that to the blue wire.
Good luck

I installed an older used stereo. I found the red wire is power, the black is ground, What is the yellow wire with the 5amp in line fuse for


The Yellow is your Ignition wire, It controls the stereo power when the vehicle is on/off. It can be spliced with the red wire, however I wouldn't suggest it unless all other options have been used.

I don't know how I copied and pasted so much sorry about that. But my question is I have orange and red wires with fuses and black wire without do I hook both red and orange to hot and black to ground?


it depends on what radio if you have a cobra 18wx style or maxon's, or a radioshack type the red is constant power 12v, orange is a switched 12v.. IE key like a stereo, and black is ground. if you have a 25 or 29 ltd types or exports they only have 2 wires red 12v and black ground. but you do find some power cords that have all three, and the orange on the 25 / exports are not used.

My dash lights and my radio stop workin when i was installing a new radio, how can i fix this?


sounds like you have a problem with the power supply. Check the fuse. if ok, remove the new radio and check the power connection to the radio. if you cut into a wire harnis to find a hot 12v connection, you may have severed the dash 12v supply or knocked it loose . Take it slow and retrace your steps, but first check the fuse panel. You may have shorted out a wire without knowing it when attempting the install. lift the pos. lead on you battery the next time you play with 12v.

No power comes on when I push the power button. I've checked the pwer lead to the radio and I have that. Also checked the ground and have that. Fuse is also OK. Any suggestions?


You need three wires to power on a radio
yellow 12v constant
red 12v switch (turns off/on with key)
black ground

Verify these three and the fuse on the back of the radio as well

2001 Ford E-150, year 2001, wire harness connection


As for the head units leads they should be marked or identified in the installation manual. There are but only three wires here that I might be able to help you with.
Two of the wires should have in-line fuse links (12+ volt power) and they are the constant feed (for memory) and the switched feed (for operation). The ground lead is typically solid black.

This is a general factory radio color code. Wire colors in your car might be different than colors described here. Use the given colors for reference purposes only. Always test wires to make sure they are correct.

Good luck

NEED TO KNOW WHICH WIRE ARE WHAT ON DELPHI TRUCK RADIO


Hello,

You may wish to consider purchasing a wiring harness that will allow you to plug directly into the vehicle harness without tapping or splicing. Here's a link to one such item: This one appears to be for your vehicle.

http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_5944_PAC+ADD-GM24.html

Installer.com shows the following color code for the radio and speaker wiring for the 2007 GMC Sierra.

Speakers
--------
White: (LF+)
White/Black: (LF-)
Violet/Black: (RR-)
Violet: (RR+)
Green: LR+
Green/Black: LR-
Gray: RF+
Gray/Black: RF-

Radio
-----
Black: Ground
Red: +12volt Acc Switched
Yellow: +12volt Battery Constant
Blue/White: +12v Remote Output (Amp Turn On)
Red/White: Reverse Light Trigger
Yellow/Black: Parking Break Trigger
Orange/White: Auto Illumination
Blue: Powered Antenna
Orange: Illumination
Brown: Phone Mute (optional)
I would recommend that you verify the speaker wires before doing any splicing.

Attach a speaker to a pair of test probes and leaving the harness in and working, probe the back of each pair as coded above to insure that they really are the correct wires. Most likely you will want to convert the rears to low-level, so start with those. Probe the Violet(+)/Violet Black(-) pair and you should get sound in your test speaker. Likewise, do the Green(+)/Green Black(-) pair.

The only other wire you would need from the stock radio for an external amp would be the blue/white turn-on lead and if your LOC has audio sensing turn-on, you may not even need that. Bring power to your amp directly from the battery (fused according to amp manufacturer recommendations) and find a ground within 3 ft or so of where you intend to mount the amp.

Hope this helps.

Radio Not Working


There are 3 fuses in the interior fuse panel that feeds radio.
no. 11(10amp) is ignition switch power to the radio it comes into radio on the TN/LB wire.
no. 27 (10amp) is hot at all times and comes in on OG/LG wire.
no. 12 (5amp) is hot in run or accessory and comes in on YE/BK wire.
Check these with 12V test light at fuse and at radio connector.

Sorry not all vehicle manufacturers use the same color codes, however your radio wants to know if the lights are on (to dim for night time), and also how dim you desire. Often more than one ground, also could be antenna up/down request.
