Question about Car Audio & Video

Car stereo wiring

When my car stereo was installed in my car, i believe it was done wrong. When i turn on the car the radio doesn't come on right away. i have to physically hit the power button to turn it on. i also have to reset all of my radio stations. This happens every single time i start my car. Is there any way i can fix this? Please let me know.

Friend i believed also that it is not wired properly. The best solution is to rewire it. Of course you can fix that.
First thing you should do is to trace the circuit from your car's battery to the amp and to the speakers be sure that turning on your car makes the circuit on, i believed that the wires that makes your amp turn on is not direcltly connected to the wires on your car's switch key. The wires from your amp is connected directly to the battery. Check if your amp is in series with your car's switch key wires, if it is not then, try rewiring it in series with your car's switch key wires.
Caution: Having wrong connection will give damage to your car and maybe to you. If you do not know basic electricity , the best way to deal with your problem is to have someone in your area who is an expert to wire your car.

It sounds like they messed up your installation. You can confirm their work by verifying that each wire was attached properly.

Click on this link for a PDF of the installation instructions of the radio (If you don't have the installation guide that came with the radio).

Illumination is the grey wire from the car to the orange with white stripe from the radio.

I suspect that the yellow wire from the car is not connected properly. When the orange wire (constant power from the car) is attached, but not the yellow wire you can insert and eject cds, but it will not turn on. Constant power is used for maintaining the clock and preset radio stations.

If everything looks correct, I would take your car back to the installer and have them correct the issue.

You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.

If not....

Car Radio memory Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: The radio harness does not provide a switched power source. Run a wire to the fusebox for switched power.
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black/White
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue
