Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I just installed a Pyle Marine CD player in my street rod. It works perfectly until I start the engine, then the sound cuts out. I switched it out with another car and it works fine in the other car.

You should be looking for a large capacitor to insert in the stereo's power leads. One farad, more or less. The CD shuts off when the battery voltage drops below a certain voltage. This prevents the voltage dropping below the threshold while cranking. Available at Wal Mart, Canadian Tire, Radio Shack type stores.

Speakers cut out after 7 minutes


It sounds as if something is not grounded properly. Check your wiring and make sure all connections are made.

Trying to install pioneer cd player in street rod.


You need:

a 12v + source from the battery (yellow wire)
a 12v + switched with the key (red wire)
a Ground (black wire)

then you need your four speakers hooked up, i'm unsure of the color codes on them but they are usually pairs i.e. green and green with black stripe for one speaker white with black stripe for another etc.

other wires such as illumination (orange) and power antenna (blue) are optional

the illumination (orange) you would connect to 12v + from a headlight switch and it would cause the unit to dim when you turned your headlights on

The power antenna (blue) is used, as the name implies to control a power antenna if you have one, or more commonly as the signal to turn an audio amp on (on the remote connection)

Hope this helps

Peugeot 406 cd player works when ignition is on but when engine is started cd player wont work. Radio is fine.


Just bought 2001 peugeot 406.The radio worked perfect but CD player not reading disk or operating.That was until I realised that the CD for driving safety will not allow you to put CD into it while driving or engine running.Switched off engine then switched it to 1st batt light position & CD worked perfectly.But when I then switched key off & then started it was back to not operating.I then realised that the CD player for safety will not operate when engine is running unless you let the CD start operating first pre engine fire then wait a little more time before starting .Now it should work properly though it will not allow even the passenger to change a disk while being driven. On disk change you have to go through the same start proceedure.Hope this will get your CD working.Sherlock ??

Bad performance


You will need to double check your installation my friend, such as make sure all of the power connections are good. If that does not correct the problem, most likely you have a problem in the radio and these days you can get a good Sony or Pioneer in dash with a cd for around a hundred bucks or so. Good Luck
