Re: turning off and on when driving

The only way to be completely sure that the problem does not exist in the power cabling is to run BRAND NEW power straight to the battery and/or ignition cct on the cars fuse block. This then ensures that you have solid power supply If you have checked the wiring and are completely confident that it is ok, then it is possible that the unit has dry solder joints. Power switching is done by devices mounted to the chassis of the unit and they often dry joint as a result of the heating and cooling cycle of operation. You could check this too by disassembling the unit and looking for failed solder joints and repair. Good Luck. :) Happy to chat more about it if you wish :)

Ford freestyle 2007 sometimes when i shut the car of and get out the radio comes back on

Weird only thing I can think of is if you connected the constant and switch power wires to the radios constant wire but it would do it every time I don't understand why it could only be doing it sometimes

I can't seem to be able to switch Demo mode of and that, i think is the source of why everytime i turn off my car, all the the settings i've changed come back to what they were. That includes switching off...

Check your Wiring, as it sounds like your Constant +12 volt wire is connected to the Switched +12 volt wire. This would cause all settings to return to factory, just like when you lose power due to a bad battery or battery disconnect. Since you switched off Demo mode, and it comes back, this has to be a wiring problem, or a defective unit, but more than likely a wiring problem. On most pioneer units, the Yellow wire is the Constant 12 Volt (battery) and the Red wire is the Accessory 12 volt (switched).

When I connect my power and ground leads the amp turns on for about 3 seconds and the light goes red and it switchs to protect mode. The speaker and rca wires are disconnected

You have a faulty output device(s)... If there is NO LOAD, then you have an internal problem, the Amp "Thinks" it is sensing a "Short" and is shutting down, to "Protect" itself...

My cd player will not work in 2005 my chrysler 300 the radio works but the cd player wont work whats wrong

Your chrysler 300 has a factory amplifier built in to the system. Seems you have connected the radios antenna turn on wire (usually solid blue) to the factory amp turn on wire. You must disconect the radios antenna turn on wire and connect the blue wire with a white stripe to the factory amp turn on wire. The problem with the blue antenna turn on wire is that when you are switching from radio to cd the unit is shutting off power on that wire(because it thinks its trying to lower a power antenna) Once the correct blue/white wire is connected the factory amp will stay on wether its am/fm or cd. Hope this helped

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.

Radio stations

you have the constant and the turn on wires back wards, just switch the yellow and the red wires. if that does not work, then you may not have the red and yellow connected to the right wires,

with the ignition off, take the yellow and put it to what you think it goes too, and the red to the one you think it goes to. If you do not hear the cd player make a click and running sound, it is not wired correctly, check other wires ont he car to make sure you have the right one.

Ejects CD every time it is turned on

it sounds like you have got the permanent live and the switched ignition live the wrong way round. if you check which positive 12v supply goes off when you turn the ignition off and remove the key and connect that one to the one which stays 12v when the key is turned off and vice versa that should solve your problem
