Car radio/cd player replacement, wiring problem

Hi, i am replacing the stereo in my fiat Ducato camper van as it has stopped working. Problem. It has standard ISO sockets for power and speaker fitting into the back of the new jvc unit but on the "power" supply lead it is only showing me 12volts on the permanent supply on the lead marked on the plug as "ignition 12v" it is not showing anything even with the ignition switched on. Question? Do both of the leads need to be supplying 12v? can i make a bypass lead to the battery so i can find out if this is the fault? without blowing up my new stereo!!
I would be grateful for your help.
Thanks Dave.

Yes. Both leads need to have +12v for the device to function.

Yes. You can run a bypass to the battery to make it work.

Check for corrosion on your wiring. Assuming that your other peripherals are working properly.

No power to fuses on Fiat 14 ducato van (1987) alternator charging, headlights, horn, hazard all ok, no power to indicators, wipers, heater fan, fuel gauge, temp gauge. all fuses are ok, engine starts


Sounds like the relay is bad, look in the fuse panel or under the dash for a lil black box, they are usually appx 1"' x 1" and there should be several of them. You may want to check owners manual or a repair manual to find the location. They should be listed in the schematic of the fuse box as well.

Hi,i have just brought a 1989 bedford camper and wanted to fit my sony cd player to it but have no idea how to start...old radio seems to only have two wires going to it (and ariel)but cd player seems to...


Usually a car stereo will have at least 11 wires and sometimes more, the basics are Power (red) Ground (usually black/sometimes brown), constant/memory (usually yellow) and the speaker pairs, gray pair, white pair, purple pair, and green pair. There may be a blue wire for the amplifier trigger, but you don't need to concern yourself with it unless you are installing an amp.
Let us know what your configuration is as for speakers and such and we may be able to be of more assistance.
