Re: no power to my player
A Pioneer DEH-P2500 power wiring would include: * Black - chassis/body ground (GND) * Yellow - always on B+12 such as the + terminal of the battery; * Red - switched on B+12 such as the ACC terminal of the IGN switch.

It sounds like your auxiliary and constant power wires are switched around. Switch your red and yellow wires around. You could also have a bad ground. Did you use an aftermarket wire harness to connect to your factory wire harness, or did you "hard wire" them?
The monitor only headrest does not have audio handling circuitry in it. the wire harness for that side is the one with the red and black wire, and the two video inputs, not the harness with the red and black wire and the three RCA jacks. It will function on the wrong harness, but it is not the correct one.
The DVD headrest has two harnesses. One of them is for power and output, the other is for input only from another source. The harness with the red and black wire has the three RCA outputs... the video lead goes to the other headrest, and the audio can be fed to an aux input on a stereo or amplifier. The input harness is designed to be Video 2 input from either a gaming system (a Game Cube is a nice option), or another DVD or video source (hand held video device such as iPod or Smart Phone like a HTC Touch Pro 2).
To get sound out of the stereo, either run the audio output from the headrest to the aux input on your stereo, or cycle the FM transmit options using the FMTX button on the DVD player unit to a station you can tune to on your car's FM radio.
Amp is powered by a main power wire to the battery, ground to metal chassis, and a remote wire (usually blue) from the D player to the remote in on amp. RCA's from CD player to amp as well. Not sure what you mean by "no amp wire on harness". Let me know so I can give you a more definitive answer.
the easy way is to buy a 5$ harness from pepboys or a auto stereo store ask them a harness for your make and model car to hook up a after market radio that harness will plug into your factory harness also the new harness will give you a wire diagram telling you what wires are what if you dont know about what wires are what on your after market radio they are sometimes listed on the top of the radio its real easy most radios are red power yellow aux -only power when ignition is on and black ground speakers are most of the time one color for all negitive and multi colored for positive good luck I hope this helps good luck....
You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.
When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.
Why do you need to trace them? Is it a stock amp? If you know where the amp is....then tracing the wiring is a cinch....
The amp has to be powered, so there's most likely a power wire from your battery. If it's a stock amp, it's powered from behind your cd player. And be more specific, what speakers? There's like what, six?
They all go to one spot man, right behind the cd player.
What's spiking? The sound? As in it's loud, quiet, loud, quiet, loud? You might have a bad ground somewhere, so check grounds. Those are easy to find, behind the deck the ground is black. If it's an aftermarket amp, then the ground is going to be close by to it. It's most likely screwed to the steel part of your car.
It could be your deck to, it might have just got randomly defective. You do have a 96 after all.
If it's an aftermarket cd player...check your wiring harness. You have to cut the wires from the car to tie them into the harness for your cd player, so jiggle those around to see if you can hear a difference.
Id call you local stereo shop. I changed the head unit out in my old acura legend and had the same problem. You need to buy a special harness for the bose. Each speaker had its own amp, so i just rip it off and wired the speaker direct and trashed the amps. Now this was an older car and speakers were almost shot so no biggie. I would not recommend you doing that on and 04. Just call your local stereo shop and they should hook you up.
