Question about Car Audio & Video
It says in the instructions to hook the black to ground, the yellow to the battery lead and the red to the acc power lead. I do not have an acc power so I hooked the black wire from the radio to the ground on the battery side and the yellow to the hot side of the battery. The radio will not turn on. The fuse is ok and this radio is new. Any ideas? Thanks
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.
