The chassis of the receiver normally is connected to its ground, it should work, but if want to look for the missing cable please follow the color sequence at the rear connector, the ground wire is the third starting from the yellow cable, the second should be the red one, for more details about your receiver please check the user manual at: http://a248.e.akamai.net/pix.crutchfield.com/Manuals/130/130DEH1700.PDF
you can get a amp to work on any deck although u may have to rig it a little bit all u need is sound coming from the stereo and if u will take the rca one end and cut it and strip it u have a wire inside each one and then u have ground wires surrounding the inside wire twirl them up like 1 wire and then strip back the inside wire hook that one to front left pos wire and hook ground wire to front laft neg and do the other rca wire the same just hook it uo to front right or if it has rca jacks on the back of the stereo just hook ur rca wires into them and to the amp
Without an input on the front, the only way to hook it up would be to put an FM modulator either hard wired in line with the antenna, or over the air. There are more expensive options, but this will work just as well. I would go hard wired because over air is more trouble than it is worth. Don't use an XM radio hardwire kit, it only works with XM.
does the amp turn on when the deck is turned on ? is the ground hooked to the body of the car to bare metal w/out paint ect ...under it ? you may want to take it to a installer there are many things it could be they can also test your rca outputs if thats the problem. curcuit city is a cheap place to have your equipment tested if you live close to one
Very common with pioneers. their is a ground loop fuse-located inside the head unit, that has to be repaired at the factory. Or, the best way-just like you said, is to ground the rca's, solder a thin wire to each rca, easiest and cheapest way. I had it happen to me with a 4800.
Actually, what I think gbaity is doing is utilizing his IP(Interactive Pioneer)-Bus port in the back of the DEH-P3000, which is an input port designed to allow the deck to use an external multi-disk CD changer. All you need is the CD changer, then change the input source from your deck to "M-CD".
There are folks on eBay and other places that sell a cable that pluggs into that very same port. They are designed to allow the unit to accept input through the IP-Bus from an ipod or just about any low-level input that you can pass through the RCA jacks. I have the same deck, and also just purchased an ipod cable for the IP-Bus, and it also does not work. I have been told that I need to switch the "M-CD" input source to "AUX" as the input, but I do not know how to do that. pressing the input source button only displays "CD", "M-CD", and "FM/AM". Does anyone know how to add "AUX" to the choices or otherwise show us how to make these cables work? Thanks - TomR
