Hello, I am installing a new deck in my Ford Mustang. I've connected all the power, ground, remote, and illumination wires. I have not connected the parking break wire. Is it necessary to connect the parking break wire for the unit to power up? It's not powering up, even after resetting the unit.
No, you do not need to connect the parking break wire for the unit to be powered. My radio worked when the parking break wire wasn't attached, but you cannot watch video's or use USB without attaching it to something... you can bypass the parking break to a switch if you like.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hello . I have done some checking on this . The kit should have come with instructions . You might try to look up the manufacturer online and see if they have the wire diagram you will need to make it a little more easy . If you go to youtube and input under video search " Mirrors presented by Andy's Auto Sport " a video will come up that will show you basically what you need to do . Since your car was not equipped with turn signals in the mirrors you will have to run the wireing under the dash to just below your steering column . There you will have to find what wire runs the left turn and what wire runs the right turn and splice into them with the mirror that matches . Your mirror should have a power for light which will connect under dash and a ground which you will ground to the metal body of your car under the dash ( look for a bolt or nut that you could connect this to ) . I hope this is helpful to you .
if you installed an aftermarket stereo, the tail lights run through the illumination. make sure all wires are hooked hot to hot and ground to ground. if you installed it while battery was hooked up and touched a wire, most likely blew a fuse
Hello, Chose another powersource for your device. It is possible that you are tied into a circuit breaker that is constantly resettting. Maybe use an MP3 player for the trip and work on it when you get back.
you can buy,well we can,adaptor plugs to connect to the h/unit and to the wiring loom plug.normally its yellow=constant power 12v +,red=ignition feed 12v+,[some are other way round]black=earth,blue=power antennae,grey/greyblack,RF speaker,white/whiteblack,LH speaker,Purple/purple black,RR speaker andgreen/green black LR,,orange =illumination dash lights.Those are our standard colour codings,we get in New Zealand.
its simple that model may be equipped with factory amplifier and cannot transmit to speakers unless bypassed and wired directly to speakers after amplifier but if unsure go to crutchfield.com and get help! or call local audio dealer. Also if you purchase wiring and installation kit it will bypass that.
Here is a wiring diagram of the radio by wire color:
Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Green/Yellow Radio Switched 12V+ Wire: Yellow/Black Radio Ground Wire: Black/Green Radio Illumination Wire: Light Blue/Red Radio Dimmer Wire: n/a Radio Antenna Trigger Wire: Blue Radio Amp Trigger Wire: Blue (Same as Antenna Trigger) Front Speakers Size and Location: 5′ x 7′ Doors Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Orange/Light Green Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Light Blue/White Right Front Speaker Wire (+): White/Light Green Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Dark Green/Orange Rear Speakers SIze and Location: 5′ x 7′ Rear Deck Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Gray/Light Blue Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Tan/Yellow Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Orange/Red Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): Brown/Pink
schematic & instructions on deck
red (+) - power - 2 amp's power inlet power (+)
black (-) - ground - 2 amp's power inlet ground (-)
deck yellow wire - remote - 2 the remote amp
deck outputs 2 the RCA amp inputs

it is wise that a pro will install the system
it will give u less concerns and u will have warranty on the installation
this will save u the money u will spend for fixing a bad installation
