I would get an stereo installation kit from Auto Zone or a local automotive audio store. It will come with the surround for the new stereo to fit where the old stereo went, and a wiring harness to hook the new stereo up to and plug into the existing car wiring.
Car stereos typically have an "ignition" and a "battery" wire. The ignition wire is connected to your ignition switch, and only supplies power to the stereo when the car is turned on. The battery wire is connected directly to the battery, and always supplies electricity to the stereo -- even when the car is off. This maintains presets, clock, and other settings in your stereo.
It sounds like your battery wire was either not hooked up, or has come loose. On your stereo, a Pioneer, this wire is yellow. Locate the yellow wire on the wiring harness on the back of your stereo. This wire should be connected directly to your battery (or another source that gets constant +12VDC).
i have attached the wiring info you requested. be sure to test all wires with a meter before connecting. also a link to metra's website if you need an installation kit http://www.metraonline.com/fitl.aspx BatteryRED/BLACK(+)RADIO HARNESSAccesoryBLUE(+)RADIO HARNESSGroundN/ATHIS RADIO GROUNDS THROUGH THE CHASSIS MOUNTING BRACKETS.IlluminationRED/YELLOW(+)RADIO HARNESSDimmerN/APower AntennaGREEN/BLACK(+)RADIO HARNESSLF Speaker (+)BLUE/WHITELF Speaker (-)BLUE/YELLOWRF Speaker (+)BROWNRF Speaker (-)BROWN/WHITELR Speaker (+)REDLR Speaker (-)GREENRR Speaker (+)BLUERR Speaker (-)PINK
There are some tests you can perform for checking the stereo. Yes, you are right, there is a yellow and red wire. Yellow constant power, red is switched throught the ignition. During the installation, you may have blown a fuse. A bigger fuse is not needed, stick with the same size if you find a bad fuse. Hook the red and yellow wire together for TESTING PURPOSES to one or the other of the hot wires in the vehicle. This will also test to see if you have a bad fuse. If the stereo powers up in one or the other power connections in the car and works, you have a blown fuse. I have seen some fuses be located under the hood of the car near the car battery. Hope this helps, Bob
DIKA, first step - check your stereo batt backup wire , you must connect that direct or continues voltage from accu. Don't switch this wire, you can check if your car in off position , this wire must still have voltage +12v - +14v if no voltage check your fuse near batt backup wire. Why that wire must have voltage,that's because the voltage used for backup your stereo memori. OK good Try , Fixya and Don't forget to vote me, thank's
There is for sure a hook up problem my friend. There should be a memory wire that always has power to it even when the car or the ignition is off. Then there is a switched type wire that only comes on when the cars ignition is on. Check both of these wires in the car. Check the car wiring diagram to confirm this. To confirm the wiring in this vehicle, I
Good Luck with this install. And if all else fails, don't take a chance and blow out the unit, take it to a pro to be installed. Good Luck found the right wiring diagram for your car. Confirm this wiring diagram with this one you have. Go here:http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/stereodetail/955.html
