Question about Car Audio & Video
How do i do it please? Ive earthed it and also connected battery lead to positive on van battery. Buttons are lighting up on car stereo but nothing on main screen. Theres an orange wire; 'illumination', a pink and black wire; 'audio interrupt' and a blue and white wire; 'remote turn on' all no being used, perhaps one of these three is supposed to be connected? can anyone help? Many thanks.
The 'illumination' wire is to hook up to your headlight switch to back-light all buttons when headlights are on. The pink and black audio interrupt I believe is for hands free cellphone communications it will cut out audio when you have a call and have your hands free hooked up through your stereo. The remote turn on is for external amplifiers it provides a small amount of power to to turn on/off external amplifiers. As far as your unit not working I would make sure you have a sufficient ground using a voltmeter and make sure your battery lead is fused and fuse is not blown. You should have a memory lead(maybe yellow) that need constant 12v and a ACC power that needs switched power that is only on with key(usually red). Hope this helps! :)
