Am wiring my alpine car stereo back to my old car , unfortunately i dont know were to connect the wires , the labels on the wires somehow got cut when i kept it in storage , need help figuring were the red...

First thing you will need to do is to buy a wire adapter for your specific make & year of car. This interfaces the stock wiring plug allowing you to connect the wires from the headunit to the wires of the plug.

Here is a color coding explanation for the wires on your Alpine Deck:

P o w e r Memory (+12v Constant) Yellow Ignition (+12v Switched) Red Ground (-) Black Dimmer Pink/White (Alpine only) Power Antenna Blue Amplifier Turn-on Blue/White Phone Mute Light Blue (Sony only) S p e a k e r s Right Front (+) Gray Right Front (-) Gray/Black Left Front (+) White Left Front (-) White/Black Right Rear (+) Violet Right Rear (-) Violet/Black Left Rear (+) Green Left Rear (-) Green/Black

Display dosnt work at all. it plays music fine i just dont see anything on the screen.

look and see if the yellow illumination wire behind the stereo is connected to the power wire, you may not have its lights wired up, this could cause you not to be able to see a display, to test this for sure shine a bright flash light into the face while its playing, if you see some display, this is the problem

How to fix the auxiliar coonector of a SONY CDX-GT310I . When I connect my Ipod to it I can only hear the right front and back speaker

sounds like you may have a bad solder connection or broken wire inside the deck or the face, depending where the plug is at.

My ignition barrel broke for my vauxhall corsa,been fixed but my sony gt200 cd/radio will not come on . will not play.usually when you clip the front face unit into place the system lights the moment...

your cd switch wire is not recieving any power. when you turn on your key it turns on the switch wire. the wire/contact on the ignition barrel may not have been connected properly. check the wiring and the barrel again
if this doesn't work connect the yellow and red wire at the back of the will work without the keys now

Radio connection Pioneer vs Subaru Forester

I would like to refer you to a reputable car audio dealer.

If you have NOT yet CUT THE FACTORY HARNESS, DON'T!!!!!!!
Airbags are nothing to take lightly...

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a wiring harness adapter from a reputable source such as METRA, Scoche, or Pozitive Connections. Every wiring harness adapter changes the colors at the "pioneer side" of the harness to color match the PIONEER RADIO. All you have to do is color match, plug and play.

Adding a remote USB port

I solved my own problem.1 I removed radio1.gif face 2 I removed back cover of radio face to expose USB solder joints.3 I drilled a hole in the back cover of radio face over solder joints 4 I drilled a hole in front cover of radio behind face plate and lined it up with hole in back cover of face plate.5 I cut the male plug off of a USB extension cord and ran it through factory notch on the back of radio,through drilled hole on front panel of radio, thruogh drilled hole on back cover of radio face and soldered wires to back side of USB plug in. Wire colors from top to bottom are Red, White, Green, Black. Solder sheild to any of the three larger solder joints next to these connections. Make sure wires are not touching any other connections. Put radio back together and add screw that locks face to radio. Face can no longer be removed with this wire added. Now I can plug in my 8gb memory stick1.gif,hide it under the dash and have a clean looking installation.
