    CLICK HERE for your owners manual.

    Page 3 of the PDF simply shows Red to power (constant or switched) and black to ground.

    Ensure the inline fuse (on the power line) is good. Sometimes those style fuses blow at the ends - and not necessarily in the middle of the filament.



    Make sure the ground wire is secured to BARE metal - not paint :)



    What year and model car and wire do you have the power wire hooked to? Are you using a T tap? or is the wire cut and spliced?



    Thanks

Having trouble with an aftermarket radio hrness in a 2001 saturn sl it wont turn on what can i do


the only 2 wires you dont want to cross are red and black . once you have red from radio red from harness, black from radio black from harness connected it should light up ..the speaker wires can be "trial and error" . if red and black together dosent light it up check the fuse on the radio and on incoming red wire. try bringing 2 wires straight from the battery with a fuse between the red one to radio,if it dosent light up then with "direct power " then the radio needs to come apart to see ether internal fuse or burnt our circuit. ps: sometimes you only need to connect the red "live" wire and touch the black on the casing of the radio to test for life.

No, make sure the vehicle key is in the aux or on position. If this still doesn't work, recheck the wiring. Also, make sure you have a good ground.

Im installing a radio in my 03 chevy avalanche and i cant figure out y it wont work


if you put it in with the wire harness that plugs into the trucks harness you have to make sure the amp turn on wire is connected from the radio to the harness if the amp isnt on you get no sound, if you didnt buy the harness and cut into the trucks wires you could have a problem, check all radio and amp fuses also

My radio wont turn on


Use a voltmeter or a circuit tester. 2-5 bucks anywhere worldwide.

Test the power wire from the radios wire harness for power.
If It shows power then you fried your radio.
If It shows no power from the Harness. Hopefully you just cooked the radio harness. Splice the power wire off of the radio harness and test It for power cross your fingers thats as deep as you have to go Into electrical system.
Test the radio power wire that goes to your radios harness for electric current.
When you find the power the garbage will present Itself.

Before any of the above check all of your fuses.

One thing Is for sure you def blew something.

Good Luck
