I juat put a new stereo in my car but it wont keep the memory and will only turn on if the headlights are on and car is running

hey Jim your stereo should have a bunch of wires @ the back of it 1*black=ground 1*red=positive and yellow = battery the yellow wire is your memory wire now both the red and yellow must be connected to the battery and the black must be grounded to the cars body the rest of the wires is all speaker outlets NB!!! don't forget to fit a 60 amp fuse when connecting it to the vehicles battery

I'm trying to install a new panasonic car stereo into a 2005 dodge dakota and cannot get power to the radio to run. I have the recommended car harness and still can't get the thing to work. can you give...

take digital voltmeter and follow the harness colors to check for powers and grounds

red is ignition switched 12 volts only when car is running
yellow is constant power 12 volts on all the time from battery

black is ground this is the most important wire in the radio circuit if you dont have it grounded good you wont get a complete circuit .

to ground a radio either use the factory ground or find a piece of metal that is connected to the truck frame and scrape the area clean from paint or oils or grease and take a star washer and screw down the wire or bolt down the wire to get a good ground make all ground in one area so you dont get a ground loop .....

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.

Every time i try to hook up my cd player to my golf cart it wont power on? i got the yellow wire in the back connected to the red wire in the back and then i got a red wire connected to the yellow and red...

this can be one of three things
1) the fuse on back of CD player could be blown
2) you need to push and hold the src/pwr button till unit powers on
as long as the yellow and red wire are attached to the positive battery wire you are good if the ground is to the battery ground and you try the first two steps i said and nothing happens........
3) ground the black wire from back of the CD player to any metal surface on the golf cart than try the first two steps again
it should power on if this is the case
hope i was able to help you

Sony cdx-200 wont work

I would remove the CD player and chek the connectons inside. Check the power wires (pink and Red/white Dodge colors) to make sure you have power. I know for a fact that the number one cause for Dodges to do this is because while the harness you bought to cnnect to the factory plugs HAS a black wire for ground, there IS NO Oposing wire. It's usually a braided silver wire or a thick black attached to te stock deck. Make sure you are not getting a ground through the antenna.

Let me know what you found out,
