Question about Pyle PLMRA420 Car Audio Amplifier

2 Answers

No Power I installed a new cd player for my car by myself, but it won't power on. The only thing that seems to work is a little flashing red anti-theft light. Does this indicate that the wiring is ok? I checked all the connections to make sure they were tight and that each wire was connected to the right one and all looked good. I also changed the fuses in the fuse box, but that didn't seem to make any difference either. I'm getting pretty frustrated, because I really don't know what else to do! Please help! Thanks so much!

Make sure you have power at the end of the harness which connects to the deck. also insure that you have the 12v constant and 12v interupited hooked up correctly. this is usually the problem when the deck reconizes power but not to power it. also make sure you have the key on acc.  becasue this is one way to connect the 12v interupted.

Make sure u have power at the back of the radio. U said u replaced the fuses in the fuse box. Some aftermarket units have in-line fuses that can be open. So, check to see if there is an in-line fuse for the memory/back-up and B+ leads. If there is, more than likely, one of them is blown.

Use an USB hub to make your connection. The USB controller puts out half an amp at 5VDC. The more things you have plugged in, sucking up that little bit of power, the more likely the next thing plugged in will overload the buss. A powered USB hub will give you the power you need to work with this unit.

I want to switch the power on my car cd player away from the starter, so that i have to turn it on and off myself, rather than when i turn the key. how??


Surely you mean that your cd player is connected to the accessory power and not the starter. If you want your cd player to receive constant power then locate the accessory power wire of the cd player(the one that receives power when the key is on) and connect it to a FUSED constant power source(battery). Usually, if it's a three wire hookup it will be yellow, red and black. Yellow (constant power), red (switched power) and black is ground. If this is the hook up then the red needs constant power. If it's a two wire hook up, red (switched) and black(ground), then the red needs constant power.

Hi! i just installed myself a new Dual Cd Player Xd 1222 on my ford focus 2002 4 door. The problem is when i start my car.. The dual reset every information like the bass and treble and all of the stuff....


This just means that you do not have your remote or memory cable connected to the correct power source. You need to connect this cable to a power source that continously runs. Underneath the driver side should be a fuse box. Connect the remote/memory cable to a fuse that runs, like maybe the old radio fuse. A schematic of the wiring for your vehicle would help you out a lot. This will show you the best source to connect the cable.

I need help installing this.


Depending on your knowledge of such things and how much work it will take to get the original radio out. You can look up the radio you are removing on the internet and get a pinout on the connector to tell you what pins supply power and which are speaker connections. Then make the connections accordingly to the new radio layout for power spkrs etc. Sometimes it seems the auto industry puts the radio in first and builds the car around it. I hope this helps .

Newly Installed Car CD Player won't power up


When you see this problem, it usually means you have power on your deck's constant power wire (usually yellow) but no power on the accessory power wire (usually red). The accessory power wire is the one that sends voltage to the deck when the key is turned on. Usually this means that the red wire is either connected to the wrong vehicle wire, or that the vehicle's radio fuse is blown. As a last resort, you can disconnect the red wire from whatever it's connected to, and re-attach it to the same connection as your yellow wire. This should allow the radio to power up, but it won't turn on and off with the key-switch; you'd have to remember to turn it off or remove the face when you leave the vehicle, or you may drain the battery. Alternately, you can extend the red wire to a different source of key-switched voltage. Depending on the vehicle, you may be able to find this behind the cigarette lighter, at the key switch itself, or at the fuse box.
