Question about Car Audio & Video
I recently bought a jensen vm8012 deck and removed the old factory radio. but here is the thing, none of the plugins that were connected to the radio will work with this radio and in a haste i cut the old plugs off the wires. i then found the orange hot(+) battery wire and the black ground wire. i then connected the corresponding wire on the radio (+ & -) and tried to power up the unit with ignition on and nothing happened. fuses an such are fine and i know there is power because the ground wire sparked against the ground. but for some reason nothing. but here is where it gets funny. my climate control system would not work untill i connected both the orange and yellow wires (from the car) together. so im thinking i messed up somehwere there. it wont even work with a wire going straight to the fuse box (wire wrapped around fuse and inserted back into box and my hotlight is showing the wire is active.)
There is a wire on the back of your radio that is red and it has to be hoocked up along with the yellow and the black, you have to hook that red wire up to a power source as well that is the wire that turns the radio off and on with your key.
