Re: wiring

Connect it to any bare metal fram piece in the dash. Prefferably one that DEFINITELY touches the frame or body of the entire vehicle. Can also go to the wire that connects to the outer ring of the cigarette lighter.

Pioneer Kp-500 wiring red black gray green Red hot black common for speakers green 1 channel gray 2 channel Will play using radio chasis grounded should the black be grounded to the vehicle?

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments on the KP-500.

The black wire serves as common/return for the green/gray speaker wires. Yes, the black wire should also be grounded to the vehicle as it is the power ground and is tied to the chassis/body of the stereo.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I have a honda im trying to hard wire it directley with the pioneer harness everything is connected right except there is no wire for my illumination wire to connect to. also im getting no power to th

you do not need to connect the illumination wire that is to dim the radio when the lights are turned on. make sure you have +12v on both the red and yellow wire and ground to the black wire. the yellow should be unswitched and the red should be a switched source.

CDX-RA700 will not get power from my Honda Civic

Automobiles use Direct Current "DC" and is very dependant on a good ground. The black wire from your stereo should be the ground and needs to be attached to the chassis "metal part of the car". You can use an ohm meter to check for grounds by placing one lead on your door hinge (unpainted) and the other to where you are connecting your ground from the stereo. Be sure that this wire does not have voltage on it with the key off, on acc, or in the on position or you could blow a fuse or damage your equipment. Besides that make sure that you have 12v constant to the (usually red wire) and switched (voltage only with the key on) to (usually the yellow wire). Hope that helps. It's mostly about the ground.
