I connected all of the wires how they were supposed to be connected. the cd player does not turn on when i press the power button. it only goes on when the eject button is pressed. everything lights up and it tells me that i have no disk inside and right after that it turns off imediatly. it also turns on when i put the disk in. it takes the disk and it says read and then it turns off. could you please help me with my problem. thanks alot in advance
Rogovic-Let's see ,if I understand you properly then to me it sounds like you are missing power to you key switch lead.You should double check your wiring and also the fuse on the back of the deck if there is one.This should help you and don't forget the fuses in the fuse box.Let me know if this works,I can help you. cooltek Mar,18/08

Hi Steve, I'm glad to help! I'm assuming you installed the CD Player and now it stays on. Most CD Players have 2 power wires, sometimes only 1. If your only has one then you have your power wire connected to a wire on the vehicle that stays hot with the key in the off position. Here's what you do to find the wire you need. Take a test light and place it on a fuse in the fuse block, then turn the key off and if the test light turns off thats where you want to connect the power wire for the CD Player. Then when you turn the key off the CD Player will go off also. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Steve.
buy a 12 volt lamp tester (like a screw driver)check the wires when car ignition switch is turned on ,connect the wire side of tester to metal ground of ur car which supposed to be negative and other side of tested pin to the wires jack of ur car which is for radio connection previously,find out 2 connection points which are positive terminals one lights when igni switch is turned on the other one is permanent power terminal.now there are three wires of ur new radio one is black which should be connected to ground or metal body of ur car negative terminla and yellow connected to permanet power terminal and red one should be connected to power turned on with the swith which is called switched power .now try to find out other four groups of terminal two for front speaker two for rear speaker each speaker has two wires ,can find out the connections by connecting a dry battery cell to the wires to identify which wires of speakers sound when battery is connected ,front pair of wires is for front left grey pair is for right front green pair of wires of ur new stereo is for left rear speaker and purple or blue pair is for right rear speaker .these colors are globally known .the wires of speakers must not mixed with each other black is for ground negative red is witched power and yellow for permanent power. donot use long screws to fit ur new radio .Best of luck
it sounds like you need to turn on our amplifier. this is simple and easy to do just by connecting the blue/white wire off of the back of the radio to the blue wire on the harness that connects to the factory harness.
you can try to access the positive and negative wire on the cd player and connect them directly to a 12v battery make sure u have a fuse on the positive wire.. and if u do this right the cd player should turn on and u should be able to remove your cd. I have done this a few times myself..
find your remote wire. it would help to know the type of car and the kind colors of wires your using as your 3 main wires.
normally in most chevy and fords they are yellow 12 volt.
black as ground.
red sometimes even a tan as your remote start.
deff check your start
i had the same problem as you, i own a 98 ford escort, and i couldnt find a wiring diagram that matched the ones in my car . i managed to connect the constant (red) and switched (yellow) to the wires in the car but i had made a mistake with the ground (black) . so i re connected it to where its suppose to go so now the head unit actually lights up and turns on.
now i have another problem because my head unit doesnt stay on for any longer than 1 mintute
The yellow wire does not get used unless you have a power antenna to hook it to. The red wire is suppose to be hooked to the wire that was used as power for the stock stereo, so it turns on and off with the key. If you have it hooked to constant power, it has power coming to it even when it's turned off. That and the fact that you may need a better ground is most likely the reason you're getting the moise even when turned off. You may also want to check your speaker connections.
