I hooked up my pioneer dehx8600bh car stereo everything works perfectly except when I turn my head lights on the stereo loses power and factory reset every thing

Not sure what kind of car you have but,,, just for the heck of it, when you turn on your lights , try turning your interior dimmer all the way up. If the radio works again, then you have it powered from the wrong wire in the dash. It needs to go to a constant hot (12V) and Accy/ignition (12V) and not to a lighting wire which would power the back lighting of a factory radio.

Stereo wont stay on and only couple speakers work

on the back of the stereo you should have an rca inputs in the back, it should say either rear, subwoofer, or non-fade. all of these are acceptable, run rca's to the amp from the deck.
also on the deck in the wire harness is a blue wire with a white stripe.
hook a wire up to this and run it to the REM. terminal of your amp. this wire tells the amp to turn on when you turn on your key.
these are the only two wires you hook up the back of the stereo.
hope this helps

Hooking sat to car stereo

that plug at the back is not for sat radio. It is for use with steering wheel controls. You have the blue plug at rear of stereo and that is the plug for sat radio. Ericson electronics is contracted to build the sat compatible units that wire into this radio through the blue. plug. if you are using 3.5 plug audio control from a portable sat receiver, the you will need to buy an aux input cable for your stereo..

Lost memory

Car stereos typically have an "ignition" and a "battery" wire. The ignition wire is connected to your ignition switch, and only supplies power to the stereo when the car is turned on. The battery wire is connected directly to the battery, and always supplies electricity to the stereo -- even when the car is off. This maintains presets, clock, and other settings in your stereo.

It sounds like your battery wire was either not hooked up, or has come loose. On your stereo, a Pioneer, this wire is yellow. Locate the yellow wire on the wiring harness on the back of your stereo. This wire should be connected directly to your battery (or another source that gets constant +12VDC).

Stereo works on assessory switch but cuts off when start car

you will have to separate the red and yellow wires. they cannot run together. the red should be connected to the fuse box. there is a slot labeled batt on your fuse box under the dash. there is also an auxiliary wire in the stereo slot used by you factory set. use this for the yellow wire connection.

Remote wire

there should be a remote wire for your amplifier on the back of your stereo if you have an aftermarket stereo. It's usually a blue wire, if not you can always hook it to the same remote wire as the one your stereo is running off of.

Kenwood head unit CD and AUX sound not working

I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

Need to hook up a 200 pioneer stereo with wire harness from 96 honda accord to the wiring on a 64 impala

you'll need a small 12 v lamp to figure out which one has the power terminals. after mapping that out you need to find a small battery and hook it up to a pair of wires to figure out to which speaker the wires go to.

note : new car radios don't use the chassis ground as common (negative).. the head unit has a negative and positive wire for EACH speaker.
