Question about Car Audio & Video
Ok when I bought the car (94 Honda Accord ex) the factory radio had an anti-theft system on it and before I had received it, it apparently had been disconnected from the battery somehow. Now it needs a code which the dealership wanted me to pay for. Well I had a Pioneer DEH-12 cd player already and decided to install it. We bought the correct wire harness for my car and connected all the wires correctly. The cd player plays the cd, tunes in the stations, everything works on it but no sound comes out the speakers. The most we got was a little popping. So what am I doing wrong? Whats the next step to identify the problem?
I have a 93 accord ex with the bose amp system. Had a Sony deck put in it. It had the popping and the noises. It was installed at a store and they had to hook the red power wire to the antenna wire to get the sound to come out of the system when playing a CD. I thought that was bogus to have the antenna up all the time so I took it back out and put another quick hookup harness in it and it did the same thing. Will not put out any sound till the red power wire is hooked up to the antenna wire so that it goes up when the key is turned on. Installed the same stereo in a 94 taurus SHO with amp and it worked great. I believe that there is an expensive kit that converts the bose system to hook up a unit so that it doesn't pop click buzz, and have to have the antenna up to play.

IF THE FACTORY RADIO WAS CONECTED TO AN AMPLIFIER YOU NEED TO BY PASS IT OR USE THE RCA CONECTORS ON THE RADIO
