Car stereo blinking

I have a 2003 Ford Focus and this weekend the radio started blinking on and off. It kept going that way (even with the car off) until I pulled the fuse. So I guess my question is, does it sound like it's a loose wire someplace or do I need to replace my entire stereo? I'm looking to go the cheapest route, I don't need anything fancy, just something to listen too!

    Nothing at all, but I went and got it looked at yesterday and it's fried. So I have to find a new stereo along with all the mounting parts to go along with it.

Hi I have a JVC KD-G801 car cd player/radio. Today a mechanic uninstalled it from a car I have which I will be selling and he installed into a newer Peugeot 306 I bought at the weekend. The stereo is...


Yes... the wire designated for constant power which powers the clock and some of the lessor memory functions is disconnected.
I would remove the radio and look for the lead that is disconnected and have a constant power lead attached to it to cure this issue.
Have the mechanic who did it the first time do it.. as it was already paid for him to do so in the first place...

Trying to install factory cd-cassette combo from a 1999 ford explorer into a 1996 ford crown victoria with only a cassette radio player. need to know wiring data on both vehicles.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On your need for the radio wiring of 99 Ford Explorer and a 96 Ford Crown Victoria, see below wiring scheme:

1752885.jpg

Confirm with a voltmeter on the +12 and an ohmmeter for speaker continuity.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

What is a anti theft device? what is passlock?


well most newer cars have the anti-theft,vss,or other BS, wired thorough the radio harness for whatever reason they felt. however they now have by-pass modules for most aplications.

check this out. If you take the factory radio face (rack of buttons) in a 01 ford focus the car will not start, or if you turn the car off, and push the volum knob to turn the radio on for one hour then lock the doors from the remote, the remote will no longer unlock them without being re programed(after you break-in to pop the hood and cut power and then re-program)....fewww!!
