The blue with silver wire goes with the oranges which is illumination and dimmer the blue by itself nothing on it is the antenna that should have been matched up with the other plain blue antenna wire runnning from your dash

I have a sony explode cd player. It is an older one and has been sitting in a garage for about 3 years. We hooked it up today and my subs will not play when a cd is playing but the subs will play in...

It sounds like you are using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire ( amplifier remote turn on) to turn your amp on. The power antenna remote turns off when leaving tuner mode.

Any car stereo shop should have what you need. Might be a special antenna adapter for certain vehicles.

Tuner works, however I have no sound for the cd or auxilliary players (MP3/IPOD) Cd's are playing, just no volume

If this was recently installed - chances are good that your installer used the wrong amplifier turn on wire.
You have the amplifier remote and power antenna wires reversed.... so when the am/fm radio turns off, it drops the signal on the antenna - and it retracts.
When you switch to a different source - your amplifier loses its turn-on lead power, and shuts off.
Reverse the blue & Blue/White wires, and you will be fixed. :D

Sony CDX-CA810X / CD-playback drops aux amplifier

Do you have the remote turn on lead hooked up to solid blue wire from the back of the deck? Your amp shoild be hooked up to Bluw w/ white strip as the solid blue wire shuts off when the tuner is off, its used only for the power antenna.

Use Blu w/ Wht strip for amps

Red (accessory wire)- goes to hot wire that can be turned off.
Yellow (constant wire) goes to your cigarette lighter
Blue/white is your amplifier remote turn-on wire.
Probably have green and green/white- brown and brown/white-white and white/black, and another color for speaker wires.
You can hook one pair up to your cd player and find out if it's hooked up to the right speaker channel.
Orange (remote antenna) wire.

Rear speakers

If have a VOM check for voltage at the amp. If not, a cheap trouble light (often in cheap tool bin) will tell if have voltage. this will tell if the problem is the head unit or the amp or wiring.

Occasionally the remote wire will have a fuse in line.

No sub when listening to a cd

you're using the wrong remote output wire. You have it hooked to the power ANTenna wire (blue) which turns off when not using the tuner. You need to use the REM OUT wire (blue w/ white stripe).
