How do I wire this radio into my boat? The wires coming out of the harness are one red accessory/switch, one black ground, one yellow constant power, and a blue power antenna.


Red goes to the battery.
Since this is a boat, the yellow will go to the battery too, but I recommend you put a toggle switch on this wire, so you can turn it off and it won't drain you battery. The black wire goes to the ground on your battery. The blue wire can be used as a remote turn on for an amplifier.

Thats' It.

Here you go.
Radio Side -- Car side
12v (Yellow) -- Orange/Black
ACC (Red) -- White/Black
Ground (Black) -- Black or chassis ground(bare Metal)
Pwr Ant (Blue/white) -- Pink
If your not adding and amplifier than your system remote should be used for power antenna which is the pink.

My son and his buddy recently installed an amphlified stereo system on our center console and there is something strange going on that I can't figure out. It is a Clarion stereo with a JBL amp. The boat...


If a boat is anything like a car, the amp's negative post should not be connected to the battery, but to the ground of the boat. In a car, the entire chassis is grounded to the negative terminal, so when you run a line from the positive terminal of the battery to the positive post on the amp, and a line from the negative post on the amp to the chassis it is a complete circuit. I highly recommend placing a fuse on the positive line from the battery to the amp. Wiring this way prevents the amp from blowing up your battery, as well as prevents the battery from blowing your amp. Hope it works.

Radio works on tech bench, not in the boat


Yes, the yellow wire is the switched hot lead - it is typically connected in one way or another to the ignition switch. There is also a smaller gauge red wire that is connected directly to the battery (through a fuse of course). Both of these wires have to have power for the radio to work. Also the black wire has to be connected to a good ground. If all three of these wires are confirmed to be in good order (power where there should be power, ground where there should be ground and no shorts) the radio should at least power up when they are all hooked up and the ignition is on.

DehP6700 mp restet everytime keys is turned on.


first red is ignition or acc (turns off and on with the key) yellow is constant power (always hot keeps memory) orange is illumination (lights up radio) if vehicle doesnt have a seperate illumination wire connect it to the ignition wire. now process of elimination your ground is correct because it worked with all wires to acc your acc works because u had all them connected to it and it worked your problem is in your yellow or constant/memory i suggest u test it again take piece of wire any old thing long enough will do and run the wire directly from the battery under the hood and just run it outside the car through the window and connect it directly to the yellow wire make sure u have a good connection at the battery on the positive side if u have test light or volt meter test the wire before connecting it to the radio if it works then u know there is a problem with the wire from the vehicle (fuse wrong wire bad wire ) if it doesnt work make sure ground is connected tight and that paint is cleaned of the surface where ground connects and that the yellow wire to the radio is tight in the back of the radio.

Installing CDM-7836 into a Boat


Yes I can help, the blue/white wire isn't meant for that purpose. That wire is meant for an amplifier turn-on. the wire you want to use is the red that is the accessory lead. What I would recommend is finding a constant 12V to hook to the Yellow and hook the switch 12V to the red. This way your radio will retain memory. Or you can connect both the red and yellow to that switch and never turn the switch off. Simply use the on/off button on the radio. Good Luck I hope I could help.

Panasonic CQ-C1335U CD/RADIO FOR AN AUTO


what kind of car do you have a Chevy by any chance?? Any way that red wire needs to see 12 volts in order for the radio to turn on. But this is the wire that should get power when the key is turned on NOT directly to the battery. By the way, If you wires to the battery make sure that you have a fuse no more than 6 to 10 inches away from the battery. You should no matter what make you have be able to find a constant 12 volt for the yellow wire and a ground for the black in the dash. Hit me back with year make and model and I'll let you know how to find some ignition.
