Re: how to hook up my cd player

I have a 2002 Chevy Impala that has a factory stereo. It shows cd buttons but there is not a cd player. There is a tape player. How can I hook up a cd player without tearing up the stereo or pulling all the wires out from the back????

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.

Cd changer connections

Hi, On your Audiovox ACC56 10-Disc CD Changer with a Prestige P-165/P-185 FM Modulator, the wires: black - goes to the body (-) ground (as you correctly posted); Green/white - (with a small filter box) goes to the constant/always on 12V supply such as the + terminal of your battery Orange/White - should be connected to a switched power source such as the accessory terminal of your ignition switch or to the blue or yellow wire of your head unit or car stereo or whatever wire that will have 12V+ only when the head unit or car stereo is switched on. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Dont know the wiring diagram

Positvie is red, ground is black, and or black with a white stripe. the yellow wire is also a positive wire, it is the memory wire which should be hooked to something that will always be hot, even when the key is completely off. If you have a power antenna, that is controlled by the blue wire

No Instruction sheet

This should help you!

As for the remote - see if the cable is hooked up to the readio or modulator. If so press the reset on the back of the remote.

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.
