Ok i dont no if its a stock one or a cd player so ill tell you wat i no

if its a stock one check all your fuses and on the back of the head unit and the radio fuse

if its a cd player there will be a fuse on the back of the unit also

remeber red (positive ignition) and yellow memory constant power it wont turn on unless yellow is hooked up
black ground

another way to do it is have red and yellow joined straight to the battery with a fuse but u will have to turn the unit off by your self instead of turning the key if u need more assitence tell me more of the car and how u have done it so far and if ur using a wiring loom that was with the car

Have a 1996 Toyota Camery. Installed a KDG140 JVC stereo/CD player but the stereo won't work. CD player works great.


If "stereo won't work" refers to you not being able to get radio stations; try your antenna connection behind the radio. The vehicle may also have a power antenna connection(blue wire at the stereo).

Installing a ptid-8960 power acoustik into my new 2011 mazda 3 what wires should connect or can i even install it without getting the wire harness adapter to make it like the same connections not quite...


You absolutely should use a wire harness for this installation. Not using one would require you to clip the wires to factory radio connector, making re-installation of the factory stereo nearly impossible. Even worse, you would have to wire the connector that came with your PTID-8960 deck to the clipped ends. This task would be nearly impossible, as the factory wiring is too short to extend out of the dashboard where you can work with it easily.

Save yourself the trouble.

I tried finding the exact item you will need, but it seems the Mazda 3 comes with stereo options that could affect which wire harness you'd require.

Here is a link to Crutchfield: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120707904/Mazda-Receiver-Wire-Harness.html?tp=2977&tab=other_items

You can use their site to select your car and installed options, and they will return products compatible with your vehicle.

Radio was working great today, then bam it quit. Checked the fuse found it blew(10amp) replaced it. Tried to power up the radio NOTHING... Checked ground wiring,it's fine, checked two other fuses fine....


If you already have your dash apart, have you looked for a fuse directly on the radio itself? There should be one somewhere near the power wiring on the back of it. If this is blown, you will be getting power to the wiring, but not to the radio. Replacing this fuse should help you out.
If this is not the problem, use a voltmeter to check the wiring where it goes into your stereo. If there is no power here, then the power overload that blew your 10amp fuse is probably related to a short circuit somewhere in the wiring between the fuse and the stereo. To repair this, you will likely have to run a few new power wires (you should replace both the positive and negative to make sure you have fully bypassed the problem) from the fuse to the stereo. If you have checked these wires with a voltmeter and they have power at the back of the stereo, but the stereo itself is not still not working, then the problem is with the stereo itself.
If you find that the wiring to the stereo all has power ... the fuses are all good (which you have already stated) ... the fuse on the stereo itself is in good shape ... then there might be a short within the workings of the stereo itself. If you are not experienced with repairing electronics this could be out of your ability to fix -- you can bring it to a shop or buy a replacement. If you are experienced with repairing electronics, open up the stereo and start checking the wiring (starting from the closest point to the power input and moving towards the stereo's face. This could be a long and arduous process ... so if you are not experienced with it ... I recommend taking it to a professional or just replacing it (your hair is probably worth more than the $100 you would spend on a decent replacement stereo ... and if you are like me, you would be ripping out your hair after checking the first few hundred possible connections within the stereo itself).
Hopefully it is just the fuse on the back of the stereo itself, and you can have that fixed in short order. Good luck!

Im trying to install a new radio into 1997 Ford Expedition w/premium sound. However I cannot get any sound. I have the wriring harness.


Hello... I am sorry to hear you are having a problem I am assuming that you are using a wire harness adapter to interface between your factory harness and the aftermarket radios harness. If the aftermarket stereo has a blue/white wire, you need to connect it to the blue and the blue/white wires in the adapter harness. This will turn on the amplifiers. If your aftermarket stereo only has a blue wire, then use it as the connection with the blue and blue/white on your aftermarket harness adapter. Hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, let me know!

Stereo does not store adjusted audio settings and restarts after being turned off


Check to make sure the yellow from the stereo harness is connected to constant battery, connected to the battery, when the ignition switch is off, the yellow wire still has power. The yellow wire is for the memory for the stereo settings and radio station presets.

I have installed a Venturer Stereo car cd player and not getting any power when I put the front face on.


you need to check your fuses in case one blew out, try turning the lights on as the same time as it is quite common to get the lighting wire confused as a power wire and also check the connections from the faceplte to the stereo

Wire kit for a Audiovox BA200 200 Watt base tube


There are 5 wires to connect to the BA-200 for proper operation. 1. Red Wire with Fuse: Connect this wire to a source of + 12 volts which does not turn off with the ignition key. It may also be connected directly to the po~itive (+) terminal of the battery. 2. Black Wire: Secure this wire using a screw or bolt on a grounded metal surface of the vehicle. Clean-away any rust, dirt, or paint from the surface to make sure a good connection is made. 3. Blue Wire: This wire activates the BA-200 when the stereo system is turned on. Connect it to the "Power .Antenna" lead from your car stereo. If your car stereo does not have or you cannot locate the Power Antenna lead, the blue wire can be connected to a source of + 12 volts which is turned on and off with the ignition switch. In this case, the BA-200 will be activated whenever the ignition switch is turned on, whether the car stereo is on or off. 4. Green Wire: Splice this wire to the wire going to the positive (+) terminal (sometimes indicated bya red dot) of the left speaker of your stereo system. 5. G ray Wire: Splice this wire to the wire going to the positive ( + ) terminal (sometimes indicated bya red dot) of the right speaker of your stereo system. You Need to order this piece trough the manufacturer, with out this piece the sub is useless, i am guessing around $20-$30 for it
