If you are looking to connect this radio at home, you will first need some kind of 12V DC power supply with an operating range anywhere between 9-16V. You can purchase these online or at most electronics retailers (Radio Shack, Fry's Electronics, etc.). Simply connect the constant memory power wire (yellow) and switched accessory power wire (red) from the Pioneer's wiring harness to the "+" terminal on the power supply and the ground (black) wire of the Pioneer to the "-" terminal on the power supply. Make sure to have at least one speaker connected to the speaker output leads of the Pioneer for sound. The speaker connections are as follows: Front Left + (white) FL - (white/black stripe), F Right + (gray) FR - (gray/black), Rear L + (green) RL - (green/black) RR + (violet) RR - (violet/black). And that's it! Sound at home with your Pioneer radio! I hope this information was helpful.
the pairs, eg grey, white, green, yellow, (colours may vary, but as long as there pairs) are all speaker wires, red is the power, black is earth, blue will be the remote wire to switch on an external amp, and there will be a yellow wire which goes to the aux power supply so when you turn your key on the stereo will turn on and keep all memories
Your best bet is to reinstall the maps, from scratch. This will ensure that all the maps are included. This guide should help you out: http://www.tomtom.com/support/solution.php?GID=1&PID=1682&CID=224-225&Language=1
Would you be aware if there is a pre-installed external amplifier attached to the old head unit?
If yes, the speakers are connected to the amp and not to the new CD player. There should be a pair of shielded wire with RCA male connectors that should go to the head unit and the other ends would be attached to the amplifier. Additionally, there is a trigger wire from the head unit that switches the power of the amplifier to ON aside from the power B+12 and GND.
If no, on the Ford pls verify that: Green/Yellow - always on B+12VDC (positive battery terminal) Yellow/Black - switchable +12 (ACC terminal of your IGN switch) Black/Light Green - chassis ground Orange/Blue - remote trigger on for power antenna or external amplifier(s) Light Blue/Red - park light
Speakers Orange/Light Green LF+ Light Blue/White LF- White/Light Green RF+ Dark Green/Red RF -
Pink/Light Green LR+ Dark Blue/Orange LR- Pink/Light Blue RR+ Light Brown/Red RR- (R-right, L-left, F-front,RR-right rear)
On the head unit, often, the yellow normally goes to the always on B+12 such as the + terminal of the battery, the red to a switched B+ such as the ACC of the IGN switch and of course the black to the chassis/ground.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
remove the tomtom from the power source get a small paper clip and on the underside of the tomtom you will see a small pin hole it syas resetthe hole is where it looks like a sd card or something goes (but nothing goes there)
push that little reset button (in the hole) with the paper clip
hold it down for atleast 3 secs
then power the unit on give it a second itl be fine
remeber this happens a lot so keep that paper clip handy i keep it in my car all the time
hope i helped you
it sounds like you have an externally amplified system and the amplifier remote switching wire is connected to the electric aerial output which is a blue wire and it should be connected to the amp remote wire which is a blue with a white trace
