Parking lights not working

If the fuse box is not hot the problem is supply. Try the switch.
One other common problem is at the place the wire loom comes thru the firewall. If their is a junction at that point, take it apart and clean the terminals. While it is apart run your test meter or light to assure you have power.

I want to switch the power on my car cd player away from the starter, so that i have to turn it on and off myself, rather than when i turn the key. how??

Surely you mean that your cd player is connected to the accessory power and not the starter. If you want your cd player to receive constant power then locate the accessory power wire of the cd player(the one that receives power when the key is on) and connect it to a FUSED constant power source(battery). Usually, if it's a three wire hookup it will be yellow, red and black. Yellow (constant power), red (switched power) and black is ground. If this is the hook up then the red needs constant power. If it's a two wire hook up, red (switched) and black(ground), then the red needs constant power.

I had bought a dual xd1222 aftermarket stereo. i bought a gm2000 harness for it to hook up in my 2002 chevy cavalier. i have all the wires connected but when i hook it up in the carit will not work. what...

check the fuse behind the stereo and in your fuse box first off and make sure the power wire/ignition wires are on the correct pin. do this with a test light for verification. also check the ground wire. after you test and connect these 3 wires, the stereo should turn on. Your wiring harness may not be done correctly so visual verification with a test light would be the best thing before starting a car install. If this still does not work and the stereo you took out did, it is a malfunctioning unit.

Hand held wont work

I had what sounds like the same problem two different times. The first time the ground wire at the 12 volt to the FM modular the bolt where it was connected to the chase was loose I tighten it and the controller worked. The second time it was the in line fuse on the same 12volt to ground. The fuse is inside a two inch long black case on the same ground wire. Good luck let me know if that's your problem.

The 88 Monte came stock with am/fm or am/fm cassette so my guess is your head unit is after market, implying that there may be two in-line fuses on the units power leads

1) 12+ volt Un-switched constant feed (memory)
2) 12+ volt Switched feed (operation)

If you can not locate these fuses from under the dash, then you may need to remove the head unit to inspect the wires that connect to the rear for the in-line fuses.

When you reinstall the unit, be sure to make those in-line fuses accessible from under the dash.

Good luck

Remote lead voltage

I would say it is. Did you disconnect the blue lead from the amp then measure the lead for 12v? I just hooked one up for my son and the blue lead was the 12v that turned the Switch Mode Power Supply in (SMPS) the Amp, now, it's only present when you turn the radio on, it's not full time. If all this is done and you don't have 12v on the blue lead, I would look for a in-line fuse close to the radio. Now, if that fuse is open I wouldn't be surprised if the amp is gone also. If it was under 150.00, I would'nt have it repaired, just buy another one. My son was forced to do that because the parts were almost 1/3 the price of the amp, at my cost! Keep in touch.....

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.

Pioneer DEH-225 Car Audio

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
