Has removable front panel. My husband has been taking it off every night because of thefts in the neighborhood. Got a call from my husband this A.M. that, when he went to put it back on the car, he could not get it to work. It seems dead. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?

car running or not? if it works with the car off then I would check the alternator, your car will require more power from your already low battery causing your radio to not play. If it won't start either way check all of the wiring going to it including your speakers. Could be loose or shorted wires. Could also be the switch on the unit. only way to know is to take it apart and test the switch. If all else fails then have it looked at.

well the most common wire for the new stereo is black (earth), red(Power), blue(Remote), yellow(memory), white,grey(front speakers), green, purple(rear speaker) lil hint if u havent taken the stereo out yet when u do transfur every wire 1 by 1 then u no u wont stuff up
The only thing that hooks to the stereo are a remote cable should be labeles on the amp. and the rca cables (red and whites) the different channels go to different sets of speakers.right to right left to left. make sure your amp is grounded well or you'll throw the fuse. Hope this helps if you have questions contact me.
It sounds like you are drawing to many amps and you need to go to a higher capacity altinator and a second battery would be a good idea as well. Start your car (do it at night makes it easier to tell) turn on your headlights without your stereo on look at head lights and see how bright they are then slowly turn stereo on and up if headlights dim you are drawing to many amps and need a higher capacity alt to charge and stop you from blowing them, and second battery with and isolator so you don't draw amps from the battery that starts your car.
i had the same ploblem i had a short thats was caused by a new stereo and it burned the switch that made my brake lights turn on and also caused my front corner lights to turn on when i pressed the break was i got a auto electrician to fix the short he charged me 300.00
