What could be the problem


Pull the pump out and see if just running 12 volts across it gets it to work. If that happens then it is not the pump at all but more likely fuse board or even the body computer.

Apparently, you have no power at the 12 volt battery/memory wire at the radio harness of the vehicle. This wire is white with blue in color.
Also, based upon your description, you have connected the battery/memory wire and the accessory wire of the radio to the 12 volt accessory (switched) wire of the vehicle. This wire is white with red in color.
Check the radio/ stereo fuse of the car. You may have blown the fuse during your installation.
You have no memory at the radio because when you turn off the key, you lose all power to the radio.
Also, I mentioned the wire colors just in case you used an aftermarket radio wiring harness. Make sure that the yellow from the Pioneer unit is going to the battery power source and, the red of the Pioneer is going to the switched power source.

Turning signals work when they want too


Since the unit reuires power from the hand control - cluster switch - the voltage on the turn signal unit must be checked so that it is confirmed that the switch works.
If so the fault can be the unit failing to work which must be double checked before it is replaced.
Also check the fuse box for loose conection in the circuit.

i would look at the red assesory wire that is to keep power in your head unit even when the car is shut off it is part of the memory for time, radio stations ext.some have fusable link in red wire,sometimes they blow out like a fuse.can be picked up at radio shack.its a cheap fix if thats what it is.some dont have link in red wire.if thats the case its inside the head unit.it is not keeping power in the unit once the car is shut off.FORGETS EVERYTHING LIKE A 90 YR OLD MAN LOL.PS CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS.good luck

1. What type of head unit are you using
2. does the head unit have a Loud feature?
- Sometimes you have to press the loud button on certain head units to engage the amplifier.


Try disconnecting your remote wire from the amplifier, grabbing a piece of small 12 or 16 gauge wire and bridging the remote wire with the (+) on the amplifier. if your light does not turn green, then check your fuse and the ground for the amplifier itself and the subwoofers.

When you connect the remote wire to the (+) it should automatically turn the amplifier on even if the cd player isnt on. The reason I want you to try to connect the remote and power is because sometimes the remote wire for the cd player is bad. If it does end up being a bad remote wire from the head unit, then your best fix would be to connect the red wire (ignition 12v) on your head unit to an on/off switch to the remote on your amplifier. You can then turn your amplifier on and off by flipping the switch. If you go to autozone or advanced auto parts you can pick up a toggle switch for about $3.00.

Have you measured the 12v ignition and permanent supply?
Also check the earth.
You will need a tester for this.
Check the fuses
