Question about Aiwa CDC-X517M CD Player
I have a aiwa CDC-X517M Car CD Receiver but I lost all the wires to hook it up in my car. I have no idea what they are called so I can't look online to see where I can buy more. I see on the back where it has the four spots to hook up the wires for REAR and FRONT and then it has a number 15 fuse and something else that plugs in above it, then thre's a circular thing with about 13 holes and one little square hole.
Let me know what you think.
The part you are looking for is called the "wiring harness" or sometimes called the "dc cord"
The best way to buy this (and you do need it to use the radio) is to find a local repair center that repairs aiwa car stereos. Ask them if they can order the wiring harness for an Aiwa CDC-X517M. I don't know what Aiwa charges for them, but it should not cost more than about $30 or $40. Some are cheaper and some are a little more.
I did a search for it on google and could not find anything. Very unusual.
The four spots you refer to are the RCA jacks to connect to an external amplifier. 2 are red and 2 are white.
That thing that plugs in above the 15 amp fuse is for your wiring harness.
The circular thing is a din cable jack and that is used for an external CD changer.
Once you get the wiring harness you should take it and the radio to a place that does car stereo installations and they can do the rest for you.
I hope this helps you out, and if it does I would really appreciate a good rating. Most people we help here never rate your help :( and we do most of this for free hoping for a good rating as a thank you for the help :).
Hope you have a great day,
