I'm assuming here that these are the only wires and that you've already connected the antennas, if any.

Red should go to a constant 12 volt power source, black should go to ground(earth), and blue should go to ignition switched 12 volt power.

if you didnt buy the expensive harness about 60 to 100 bucks you will not get a ignition output for your stereo. attach to anything that turns on with the ignition. i would attatch it to the wiper fuse.

check the yellow wire is the main power so always need to exist power on that wire even if the key is not on the ignition switch,and the red wire need to be conected to a switched ignition wire from the vehicle.

to install this unit in your a beginner i would strongly recommend buying a aftermarket radio harness (this harness will attach to the wire plug in your factory deck simply unhook the factory player and attach this harness to the plug you just pulled out of the factory unit) once this harness is installed on the factory plug it will be a simple colour match (just attach wires to pioneer wires IE. red - red, white - white........once all the wires are attached install in dash recommend buying a mounting unit for this net part it will hold the deck in place in your dash...........after that is done install your pioneer unit push it in place apply power by turning car deck should turn on and work if it does not turn right on look for a source button on the pioneer unit and hold it down till the unit turns on
good luck
hope i was able to help

Trying to install after factory radio in 94 Honda accord ex and can't get any sound

I have a 93 accord ex with the bose amp system. Had a Sony deck put in it. It had the popping and the noises. It was installed at a store and they had to hook the red power wire to the antenna wire to get the sound to come out of the system when playing a CD. I thought that was bogus to have the antenna up all the time so I took it back out and put another quick hookup harness in it and it did the same thing. Will not put out any sound till the red power wire is hooked up to the antenna wire so that it goes up when the key is turned on. Installed the same stereo in a 94 taurus SHO with amp and it worked great. I believe that there is an expensive kit that converts the bose system to hook up a unit so that it doesn't pop click buzz, and have to have the antenna up to play.
