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
well im not sure of your level of experience in sound systems but check your fuse on your amp then check to see if your rca jacks are plugged in correctly to your deck then to the amp there is also a blue wire from the deck to the amp alot of people do not connect this and there for no sound it also goes from the deck to the amp and if your power wire from the battery with a fuse on it is not blown or even installed at all for that matter and the negative wire from the amp grounded to bare metal on the body of the car make sure of that hope that helps.
I agree with what you think it might be. I really think its the deck that is bad and you should be able to take it back for a new one. Have you tried unplugging the RCA cables to the amp to see if that stops it? That would tell you if the amp is backfeeding or doing something weird.
there is a wire on the back of your radio that is red and it has to be hoocked up along with the yellow and the black, you have to hook that red wire up to a power source as well that is the wire that turns the radio off and on with your key.
tblackwood ...if you have connected your remote turn on for your amp to the remote turn on on the deck(this is also the power aerial connection) ..on some decks this has power only when the radio is operating. as soon as you insert cd it shuts down the power to this supply(i dont know why some did this.it was a bad move ) ..you may have to find another power supply to turn the amp on (accessories supply on the ignition..)
First of all, if you connect iginition and constant to the same wire, it sometimes will not work, make sure they are hooked up to dedicated wires in the car. Also once they are connected and the car is on, press the source (src) button or am/fm button. Check the fuse on the back of the stereo by the wire harness too. Also make sure yellow is on constant and red is on ignition.
