I just bought a Durabrand Cd player yesterday for my 91 Dodge shadow. I had it wired and working for about ten minutes, then I try to move it to mount it up on the dash, and now it does not work it will take and eject Cds but nothing else.

Re: Durabrand Car CD player
Sounds like you may have shorted the ignition lead, normally red). Also some radio manufacturers use a cheap fuse holder on thier radio harness so check the fuse holder and the fuse. Then check the radio fuse in the fuse block of the car. Finally check the wire harness where it plugs into the radio (if applicable) a wire may have pulled out.
Make sure all connections you made are insulated.

I would remove the CD player and chek the connectons inside. Check the power wires (pink and Red/white Dodge colors) to make sure you have power. I know for a fact that the number one cause for Dodges to do this is because while the harness you bought to cnnect to the factory plugs HAS a black wire for ground, there IS NO Oposing wire. It's usually a braided silver wire or a thick black attached to te stock deck. Make sure you are not getting a ground through the antenna.
the easy way is to buy a 5$ harness from pepboys or a auto stereo store ask them a harness for your make and model car to hook up a after market radio that harness will plug into your factory harness also the new harness will give you a wire diagram telling you what wires are what if you dont know about what wires are what on your after market radio they are sometimes listed on the top of the radio its real easy most radios are red power yellow aux -only power when ignition is on and black ground speakers are most of the time one color for all negitive and multi colored for positive good luck I hope this helps good luck....
It's possible that you have a shorted speaker wire. If one of the speaker wires is pinched, grounded or shorted it will cause the deck's internal amplifier to shut down. The easiest way to check is with a multimeter's resistance function.
Remove the CD player and unplug it. Set your multimeter for "resistance" or "continuity". Attach the black probe to chassis ground; you can use the black ground wire in the deck's harness, clean dash metal, or the outer ring of your cigarette lighter. Use the red probe to test each of the speaker outputs in the harness: white, gray, green and violet. If you find a speaker wire that shows any continuity with chassis ground, then that's the cause of the problem.
A speaker with a damaged voice coil may also cause the deck to shut down. To test this, probe the positive and negative leads of each speaker and test the resistance between them. For example, to test the left front speaker you'd put the red probe on the white wire and the black probe on the white/black wire. Each speaker should read a minimum of 3 ohms of resistance. If you get a lower reading then it might be causing your problem.
If you don't find a problem with any of the speaker wires, then chances are the deck's internal amplifier has failed.
