Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Car stereo a new car stereo with the help of an adaptor all fits and works, Thought that when the car lights are turned on the lights on the raido come on, a bit strange. There is a red wire which must be the positive lead, live feed, it has a tag on it saying this might have to be conected to the ignition or the battery could go flat, and yes the battery has gone flat. What do i do???is it i cut the red wire and connect it to a wire coming off the ignition,,, I took off the face plate to the stereo and there is a red light, on. Clearly the stereo is still drawing power from the car battery even when everything is turned off.. pls advise

96 Lincoln towncar raido buttons have back light but do not work also the display on raido stoped working and no sound


  1. Press and hold the OFF button for a few seconds. NOTE: On some models, this will toggle the display on and off.
  2. Check to see if your car stereo has a dimmer setting, which can disable the display. If the car audio system does have this setting, try adjusting it to the different dimmer settings. Sometimes the dimmer setting is on the left side of the steering wheel where the lights are.

When i go to play a cd my amp will shut off ? but when i play the raido the amp will stay on !!


Verify that you used the "blue" remote wire from the radio to the amp. Some new stereos will have a dim light wire as well(pink) i think. Hope it helps.

I SOLD MY CAR I DISCONNECT THE BACK OF THE RAIDO NOW I DO NOT HAVE THE WIRES FOR PWER, SPEARKS,GROUND,ECT.


What type of stereo do you have? You can try and google that stereo name and put the words "wire connector, or adapter" after it and see what you come up with.. OR.. you may be able to go to wal-mart and check their department for adapters that may fit your stereo.
