Hello...if you are sure that the red wire is acc it should be connected to the acc connection of the ignitionkey.or maybe the lighter positive...and the other to the battery"always 13.8 v"...then the memory will function properly of the radio and you will not drain your battery...please tell me what happens...good luck ...Ron

I have a 98 ford winstar I'm installing a pioneer


You'll need to check that you have the yellow wire connected to constant battery, power from battery, not thru the ignition switch. The yellow wire is the power wire for the clock and radio presets.

Yellow (module memory) 12v wire needs constant power... any "always on" circuit in your car. Red power wire can be connected to your AUX fuse on your fuse panel.... or to the red power lead that powers your original radio.

Battery Draining


Disconnect the stereo and watch the condition of the battery. Most of the time the stereo gets power out of the battery even when engine is off.

with the ignition in the "off" position get a test light and touch one wire at a time while cycling the ignition switch to the "on" position, When you see that the test light goes off when the ignition switch is in the off position then you found the hot wire, make sure you dont hook it up to the "alway hot " wire or you might drain the battery hope this helps.

Need to hook up a 200 pioneer stereo with wire harness from 96 honda accord to the wiring on a 64 impala


you'll need a small 12 v lamp to figure out which one has the power terminals. after mapping that out you need to find a small battery and hook it up to a pair of wires to figure out to which speaker the wires go to.

note : new car radios don't use the chassis ground as common (negative).. the head unit has a negative and positive wire for EACH speaker.

Install pioneer DEH-P6400 into 98 dodge dakota, just wont work :-(


Have you measured the 12v ignition and permanent supply?
Also check the earth.
You will need a tester for this.
Check the fuses

Car stereo installation speakers


Your old unit was a common ground unit meaning all speaker grounds as well a radio ground were the same. The new unit should NOT be connected to this wire configuration. Newer units change the potential difference of the speaker power meaning that the - wire of the unit may have negative 24v on it so IT CANNOT BE REFERENCED TO EARTH OR CHASSIS GROUND.

I would recommend rewiring the speakers to the radio for best reliability and sound quality.
