Question about Car Audio & Video
Everytime i turn on my headlights at night, my system's sound turns off. its not the whole system, just the sound. i kno i blew a fuse when i first installed it, but it was replaced. CAN ANYONE HELP ME?
ps. during the day i have no problems with the system, and the sound is great, its just when i turn on my headlights is when the problems starts
Just solved a similar problem on my car i
bought a Cd/dvd player for my 2000 concord lxi i hooked it up and
hooked a rear-view camera and it worked perfect but wen i turned the
headlights on the cd player shuts of so i disconnected the orenge wire
that came out of my cd player from the orange on the aftermarket harness
then grounded the ping wire (rear con wire) it worked fine but i
couldn't see any footage from the camera for that i bought a long red power wire
and hooked it to the red camera power wire that hooked from camera to
reverse light and took the other end of the new wire i bought and hooked
it to the orange wire that came out of the cd player now every thing
works fine. you probably dont have the right power to run both cd and head lights
thats why you need constant power to run both just hook up an extra
wire between a positive wire to the orange dimmer wire its simple;
ground to ground (black)
12+ positive to 12+ positive (red)
and an extra wire (usually a red 18 guage wire bought mine at walmart) to the dimmer wire from the back of the cd player (orange)

I am assuming that your power wiring is correct since it powers up,
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;
Black - chassis body ground (GND)
If everything works, then I can only suspect that you have also wired the brown wire. This is the telephone mute for use with some mobile phones. Removing its connection to anything (if wired) should correct your problem.
If you have an external amplifier, you may also want to check that the pink/black wire only goes to the remote trigger terminal of the external amp. and nowhere else.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
