What could be wrong or how do i fix my sony cdx-ca900 car cd player ??

It sounds like something is wrong with the connection -- ie, there is an intermediate short or ground fault. or there is a signal comparability problem. The easiest way would be to connect other devices and see if there is a similar problem with either component -- then you will know with which device the problem resides. A wire trace/tone box may also help you too see where the problem is -- likely you will also need a multi-meter to see if you are having signal variations.

More information would help as well -- like the type of connection being used -- wire; Clip; RCA jacks etc.

I need to know where the wires comming out of the plug go to?? wiring diagram. thank you sony cdx-3100

This is the pinout shown on the Sony website for the CDX series players. Pin numbering is as follows:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16

This is looking at the connector with the wires towards you.

I have a sony cdx-gt420ip stereo but I dont know what wires to hook where to get it to turn on. theres an orange, yellow, red, and black and two blue. where do the orange and yellow go?

Sony head units use either a 9 pin connector, link below.
Or a 16 pin connector, listed below.
From your color description, I would believe you have the 16 pin connector. This info should be what you need to accomplish the task.
