Sometimes it works. Sometimes it dont even turn on. I checked all wiring and eveything looks like they match up. I have a pink wire that I'm not using.

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.
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
if you keep guessing you are going to fry the head unit.there is 3 plug ins on most wiring harnesses,they are made for two fit different yr gm cars.one plug for power supply and a second for speakers the 3rd is not used.they will only plug in one way.speakers should be wired the speaker wire,one has a line on it ,use that wire on each speaker for ground and the solid colored wire it a plus or poss.wire,on each speaker the same way.also make sure the head unit is grounded good.take your time the harness comes with the instructions.follow them to a T.i have a feeling that the wiring is not being matched up right.it is not in the harness your buying.triple check all wiring connections.hope it helps.PS IF YOU CAN SMELL ANY BURNT SMELL COMING FROM REAR OF HEAD UNIT ITS COOKED.HOPE I COULD HELP.
find your remote wire. it would help to know the type of car and the kind colors of wires your using as your 3 main wires.
normally in most chevy and fords they are yellow 12 volt.
black as ground.
red sometimes even a tan as your remote start.
deff check your start
put a wire in the antenna hole while radio is on if you get some reception then you know its your antenna do you have sirius if you do it sometimes it runs through your antenna if you dont then check your antenna wire where it connects to the antenna good luck.....
Sounds like you have intermittent contact between the constant 12v and the ACC 12v power inputs. Remove the head unit, and make sure that the connections are properly insulated. (using inline **** connectors preferably)
first check that the subwoofer function on the actual head unit is turned up,second check that the gain on the amp is at bout half way then check that it is on a lp (low pass setting)
then check that the boost on the amp is turned up.
please leave feedback.
For one thing I hope you know you need an amp to even power subs at all.. The remote wire coming off the rca wiring that you hook your subs up with has to go on the prong 3-in on the top here is a rough diagram: the = signs are power and ground and the prongs are thicker the comma is you remote.. - - - - - - - , - = - - - - - - - - - =
You need a wire coming out of that slot on the wiring harness.. it should be blue. and unless you have a power antenna(comes out when you turn your radio on) then you dont need the blue/blue&white power ant. wire you can just cut it and cap it. if your amp isn't coming on when you turn your ignition to acc then your remote wire isn't properly attached..
