SOURCE: re sent wire diagram gat all messed up

have we spoke before in previous post?
the red can go to any 12v live peramanent such as wire to clock or other item that has power with ignition off and the same with the yellow if your putting these to the same permanent live say from clock you can join these to together red/yellow to red on clock
the black can go to any metal or neg wire.
This should then have your device working the only problem im looking at for you now is the pink wire as this stops you using the device whilst driving as it goes to handbrake but i need to find out if its live or negative.
You could just wire the red/yellow to live and black to earth then see if it switches on and works if not then let me know and ill see about the pink wire ok
Makes sure you use inline fuses on the live wires so as not to short the device out.
Make sure you know what is permanent live to put the yellow/red wire to.
It doesnt need to be ignition it only says this so you cant use it with ignition off but you can wire it into any live feed from clock or switches so its up to you what to wire it to its just the pink wire im concerned about.

PINK: does it tell you to put it to live or earth on handbrake switch?

let me know ok

You can find a wiring diagram for your 87 monte at You can refer to the installation manual for your deck at Since you are removing a shaft style radio and installing a DIN style you will need to perform extensive modifications to your dash. The Pioneer manual provides the dimensions.

SOURCE: When I turn the computer on I get a buzzing noise

The LED lights on the Front Panel are Diagnostic Lights.

LED's 3, and 4 being illuminated, indicate a problem with the ram memory modules (Sticks), according to Dell.

This is Dell Support, and the Service Manual main menu, for the Dimension E520,

On this main menu page left-click on - Advanced Troubleshooting.
Now click on - Diagnostic Lights
Look at the chart.

My diagnoses is different. I think it is a Power Supply issue.

Do you have more than one ram memory module ('Stick') installed in your computer?

Basic procedure, implementing safety guidelines both for you, and your computer.

Computer off, And unplugged from power.
Open the computer case, and touch the metal frame.

Your body carries Static electricity. Touching the metal frame of the open computer case, will relieve your body of Static. (Computer unplugged from power first)

Static electricity will fry out, (Short Circuit), the hardware components inside a computer ]

In the main menu you can click on - Removing and Installing Parts, for guidance in opening your computer case, and removing/installing ram memory modules.

(Removing the Computer Cover, and Memory, respectively)

If you have one memory module, remove it, and clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom, with a pencil eraser.
Use care, and refrain from touching the contact pins with your fingers.

You can hold the ram module anywhere on the body of it, as the body is coated with a see-through plastic.

Apply the pencil eraser to the top of each contact pin, and stroke down with the eraser.
A side to side motion is not a good idea, as well as starting from the bottom of the contact pin, and going up.

[This is DDR Sdram, and not DDR2 Sdram that is used in your computer.
I linked it to show you a close up view of the gold plated contact pins, and the Black DRAM chips on the side of the ram module,

The top of the contact pin is is close to the DRAM chips.
{DDR Sdram has 184 contact pins. 92 on each side.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 contact pins. 120 on each side]

After you clean the contact pins with the pencil eraser, use air from you, or a can of compressed air for computers, to remove the eraser 'dust'.

If you have more than one ram memory module, do the above procedure for all of them.

With having just one ram memory module, reinstall it back into ram memory Slot 1.

(DIMM 1 may be stamped on the motherboard next to ram Slot 1.
Slot 1 is the ram slot that is closest to the Processor, that is sitting at an angle on your motherboard)

If you just have one ram memory module, place it in Slot 1.
If you have more than one ram memory module, pick one, and install it in ram Slot 1.

Do not close the computer case at this time. Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still No?

If you have more than one ram memory module, use it in Slot 1. Test again.

If the second ram module you try works, then the first ram module is bad.

If you have just one ram memory module, and this test resulted in the computer not working, the diagnoses is that you have a bad ram memory module.

Same thing if both ram modules do not work, if you have more than one ram memory module.

I think it is the Power Supply is bad, due to the fact that the computer, 'Fell to it's knees', when you tried to turn it on the second time.

Bad voltage power rail. Not enough power from the power supply to turn the Processor on, and keep it running.

Computer power supply's power is rated in Watts. (Wattage)
Voltage times Amp's = Watts

1) ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt of power.
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.
3) A typical Processor uses 55 to 125 Watts of power.

When you press the Power On button, 5 Volts of standby power is redirected to the Power Supply.

This turns the Power Supply on.
The first chip to receive power is the BIOS chip.

The BIOS program burned into that chip, looks to see what devices are connected, does a Ram Memory count, turns the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.

(Windows XP is an example of an O/S)

I believe you do not have enough power to turn the Processor on.

There is a way to test the power supply with a power supply tester, (About $15)
Or a known, good, and compatible power supply, can be used for a test.

(One more thing to Note*

For a time period Dell built their computers as a Proprietary computer design.
This means they wanted THEIR computer parts, installed in THEIR computers.

The main proprietary item at that time was the Power Supply.

This is in reference to the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, and the wire placement in that connector.

Close up examples of a 24-pin main power cable connector, (In your Dell computer this connector has P1 stamped on the side),

Look, at your 24-pin ATX main power cable connector on your Dell power supply, and observe the color code of the wires.

Use the lock tab on the side of the connector, to orient where the wires are placed.

Now look at the 24-pin ATX main power cable connector for the power supply you are wishing to use.

The color code of the wires MUST be in the same.

I shut off my car and turn it back on i need to setup the radio and my settings again it doesnt save ! im missing the orange wire for illumination but my deck still illuminates its the memory thats doesnt...

Make sure the yellow wire is going to a source that still has 12v when the key is turned off. The yellow wire controls the memory and needs to be connected to a constant power source.

I have a avh-4900dvd that I was trying to install in my 04 silverado and it will not power up at all I know the fuse is good in the vehicle because the factory radio works fine and I only connected the Red...

there should be a yellow wire that is used for 12 volt power. the red is usually just switched power. I hope you are using a harness from metra or scosche for this install as cutting into a factory harness is not a good idea

The wires are backwards. Are you using an adapter or did you straight wire it?
The yellow wires is memory, the red wire is for power when the ignition is on.

Red wire missing

the power wire goes above a blue wire or next to (white/orange) and (green) in top row if there is a space there
yellow should be above black
(white/orange) should be above (blue/yellow) i think
than red over blue
hope this helps
