I need to re-install my deck after it almost got stolen
Hi! My car stereo ALMOST got stolen, I caught them in the act and saved my system, but they had already torn out my dash, ripped apart the wires, and disconnected everything. It is a mess! I paid a lot to get it installed originally and I can't afford to pay someone right now to do it again, Christmas coming up and all. I tried to connect all the wires (the little colored one's, some with black stripes) to the matching color. I plugged in the antenna and the subwoofer plug things. But it's not getting any power. I noticed it's missing a fuse, but I don't know how many amps to get, the broken pieces are yellow so I think 20A. I tried it with a 20A fuse in and it still doesn't get any power. I have a 2003 Chevy suburban. There is an orange and a pink wire coming from the car, but none coming out of the deck to connect them to. I am sooo confused and frustrated!!! Which wires give it power?????? Help!!!!!! Where can I find an installation guide? Pioneer no longer supports this model.

a little more information would be nice but im going to make a guess
you installed a new deck in the car, now every time you turn the car off the clock resets?
if thats correct..
the deck will have 2 power inputs, one that turns the radio off when it does not have a power signal, the other that should have a constant voltage to maintain the stereo memory, now if I'm correct you have either the 2 wired opposite to how they should be or both wired to something like the ignition wire, and it is acting like the battery has been removed every time you turn off the car, which means you need to check your stereo wiring.
if this is incorrect please leave some more info telling everyone when the clock is automatically reseting.
the factory deck coinsides with the stereo system when installed as an option an aftermarket does not affect ur stereo gm has a anti-theft system built in need codes 4 when disconnecting the battery if ordering a factory unit ask parts dealer about unit if it has a anti theft system in it usually doesnt
Red is power to from ignition to cd deck Yellow is direct power from battery to cd deck to hold the memory. Black is ground Blue is only needed if you are hooking up an amplifier. I always suggest buying a wire harness quick connect system for $5, then you won't have to cut origional car wiring. If by chance you are taking the original wire route, then go to installer.com to find which wires on the car are for what.
take it back to the shop and tell them to try again. What they have done is there are two power sources on stereos one come on when you start the car and operates all the stereos functions. The other is a power source that is always on is hardly draws anything so as to not wear down your battery but this power maintains the memory on the deck. they have either not installed this to a constant power or forgotten to hook it up at all. demand a re-imbursment for your troubles.hope this helps
Ebay, and other places online, most of the time the changer is a seperate unit from the actual deck. just look around if you could post the actual brand and model of the unit in the vehicle then i could be more detailed but as of right now i say just look around as most of them connect into the actual deck and are not part of it.
you need to remove stereo and contact a dealer neer you with the info on the deck anyone in parts or service will be able to help you. they might want to see you and the car to prove that is not stolen.might also need the vin number
