Depending on your car the looms are different fron standard wiring on all decks. Basically you have red which you will connect to a power source with the correct fuse inline. This wire can be taken from the ignition source if you want the deck to work only when the key is in the ignition or directly to a the battery (still with an inline fuse) if you want the deck to play even when the keys are removed from the ignition. This is risky as you might forget to switch off the deck and it will drain the cars main battery. Next you need to connect the yellow wire to an always on power source or directly to the battery, again with an inline fuse. This wire will allow the deck to retain your settings. The black wire must be connected to any metal eathing point that is connected to the cars body so the deck will be connected to the negative power supply. \ That's the electric current connections done. You should then have 4 pairs of wires for the speakers, usually green, white, purple and grey. They consist of one strand in a single colour(positive) and one strand of the same colour with a black stripe(negative). These are for your speakers-front right, front left, rear right and rear left. Off hand I'm not sure which colour goes where but it should be on a sicker on the deck or in the manual. Alternatively connect them up and figure it out using fader and balance controls on the deck. The other wires are blue for an electric antenna or as a signal to an amplifier to switch on. Sometimes you'll get one for a subwoofer this ones colour varies from deck to deck. Lastly if your deck can play DVDs or video files there might be a pink one. This is supposed to be connected to the handbrake so that you can only watch video when the car is parked and the handbrake is on. You can bypass this by connecting to any metal earthing point on the car like the black negative wire. If you have any other wires they maybe for steering controls and those are dependant on the vehicles wiring configuration, but are not necessary for the deck to operate. One last thing, instead of connecting directly to all the wires I suggest you get a wired plug leads and wire the deck to one end and the other end to the wires in the car. Take note of wiring both ends to the corresponding pins. This will make it easier if you want to take out the deck and put it back in. Hope this helps
remove the trim plate(thin plastic strip around your deck) you will see on the center of each side slots for two thin deck keys these always come with a new deck. you you dont have them ask a friend who has recently bought a deck(any make should be fine) or go to your local best buy and ask for a set MAKE SURE YOU ASK FOR THEM FOR FREE unless the installer you asked has purchased his own universal keys they will give you them.
your deck has two power sources a main for when your car is turned on so the radio kicks on and a remote which is always on keeping stations and clock powered passively so whoever installed it did it improperly or do to road wear and tear it was jossled lose and can simply tightened after pulling the deck out
It sounds like you had a power spike when you installed the new battery. I would check the 2 factory fuses for the radio, one will be for the radio ignition lead and one will be just battery lead (usally assosiated with the clock). Lastly if those 2 fuses were ok you may have to pull the deck and check the fuse in the back of the deck.
If the fuses are all ok and no wires are disconnected, then its possible that something else went out. Good luck and take care!
With the newer cars most radios have a theft deterrent device built into the radio, and if they steal your system it will not work in another jeep/car the dealer knows the unlock code, some charge to unlock the radio some don't.
That's why when doing electrical work on a car/truck etc. You have to have 12V DC power to the battery terminals all the time or you will loose the code and then only the dealer can help you unlock the radio. HTH.
If radio stays on at low or no volume and cuts out when turning up you may have your battery backup voltage (yellow wire) droping below 10v under signal load. There is a circuit called backup check in radio that moniters Voltage It may seem ok when measuring without volume but under load it will fluctuate with the audio. Try hooking up Heavy guage Ground and Backup battery wires to prevent voltage loss across wires under load. Also check for any speaker that may not be producing proper sound when and if you can get radio working Disconnect wires to that speaker to see if radio will stay on. Just a couple of many possibilities. email@example.com
Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...
Ok. recheck your harness. WIth some brands yes the harness will plug into the radio from a different manufacturer but recheck the wire colors. They usually change pins out. For example whats power on a particular pin may be a speaker wire on another brand unit with the same style plug...
so get the harness that came with this radio. Check the pin location and wire color on that pin to the other harness. I almost guarantee that there is a difference. Hopefully you didnt damage your new cd player...
let me know how it goes...
