Electric current and voltage required for a car amplifier is the voltage of B + and ACC, commonly called the primary voltage with a mark of B + = 12Volt-13, 8 Volt and ACC from the Iginition switch, the same voltage = 12 Volt. so make sure both are available in the car audio amps. Possible loose or broken wire as you remove it, or from broken fuse, check the fuse box panel in the car for the ACC (Accecories) fuse, if broken replace with a new one (with the same Ampere)

I took out the stereo of my 2000 outback and put it back all wires plugged in and it wont turn on any ideas of what might be the issue?

check your fuse box and see if your radio fuse is blown if it isnt you should try connecting the yellow and red wires from the radio and the harness all together and see if it comes on. if it does theres a problem with the main power supply (red wire from the harness). quick fix : run a new wire from the red on your stereo to the fuse panel and connect it to the radio fuse.

    Remove the trim from around the stereo by prying at one of the bottom corners with your fingers. Apply pressure until the clips disengage and work your way up the trim. Once the trim is free from the dash set it safely aside.

    Connect the wiring harness adaptor to the original harness. Mount the new stereo into the Toyota radio mounting kit and secure it by following the manufacturer's instructions. Plug the wiring harness adaptor and antenna wire into the back of the new stereo.

    Slide the entire stereo assembly into the dash and reconnect the battery cable. Turn the radio on and verify the speakers and controls are working on the new stereo. Secure the stereo in the dash with the six 10mm bolts and replace the trim ring around the radio.

    I took my 92 jeep wrangler's distributor cap off, put it ack on, and put all the wires back on. Now it wont start, it wont even turn over.

    If the engine won't even turn over, it has nothing to do with the cap or wires. Perhaps you accidentally damaged or disconnected the battery cable to the ground, or one of the wires going to the starter? These are located in the same general area.

    Connecting remote cable to other port from the car stereo

    You can tap the amplifier's remote wire into the accessory power lead at the back of the head unit. On most head units this is a red wire. Doing this will make your amplifier turn on and off with the key switch, rather than the deck power.
