Question about Car Audio & Video
I have a Pontiac Montana 2002 and I am trying to replace OEM radio/CD unit with an aftermarket compatible one. I connected the speakers, ground and power wires but the new radio does not even power up. What happen? Does it have anything to do with THEFTLOCK feature, or would that simply lock the radio, but will not cut the power. A bit lost.

SOURCE: problem with factory radio
you probly need a wiring harness....if this is the first aftermarket cd player in the truck... go to car audio place round town and ask for a wiring harness for your model truck....the wires will then be color coded.....hopefully this helps

12 volt accessory or same wire that goes to red wire on stereo or cigarette lighter.
What is the current draw on amplified aerial ? or are you talking bout electric aerial(up and down automatically ?) If current draw is really low like 500 milliamp or so then hook her up to blue wire (remote output) on back of stereo but REMEMBER this is LOW current and only meant to switch on amps and raise electric aerials etc.If you think amp on aerial is too much for it then run the rem wire to a 12 volt relay and wire it so that when rem triggers and closes the gate will be connecting an accessory wire OR perm 12v wire to aerial power . That way aerial ONLY turns on(POWERS UP) when stereo is on as opposed to other way where aerial will be powered up every time car ign or acc is turned on regardless of whether the stereo is on or not.

SOURCE: I switched out my radio
Hello... sorry to hear you are having a problem. The theftlock system does not pertain to anything aftermarket that you do. The theftlock only locks down the factory radio if it is removed, and only if it was activated before it was removed. There was a red led light on the radio. With the vehicle turned off, if the light on the radio flashed, then it was activated. If you hook the factory radio back up then you will have to enter the code to unlock it. Since you used a wire harness adapter, check the red wire and make sure you have 12v current on that line. You didnt state if the radio powers up with no sound or if it doesnt power up at all. If it powers up with no sound, then check to make sure that the blue/white wire is hooked to the blue wire on the adapter harness. Let me know if you are having no sound or no power and I can help you further with this problem.
