You must have tied into an Accessory fuse and not a constant. Typically Cd player/radios etc will need both an Accessory tap as well as a constant tap.

Test the voltage on the wire and if it's constant you will have 12VDC without the key in the ignition You will also need a tap where there is 12VDC ONLY when the key is in ACC mode (or ignition on)

I do not have specific details on your CD Player but consult the manual on adding both of these connections,

I hope this helps

BAD GAS!!! Empty tank, lines and and float. Get tarnish out with carb cleaner and put in fresh gas with chemical to dry lines of water/whatever. Replace fuel filter.

'80 Monte Carlo, a good ride. A Chilton's book is a good investment. It will show you wiring and vacuum hoses and how to do the brakes, etc.

Audio display says check cd


This may be a bit late to help, but I just had the same problem yesterday. Same car (2000 Monte Carlo SS), but mine is just the CD/radio stereo (no cassette). I was able to solve it by pulling the fuse for the radio (it's in the right-side panel) and letting it sit for a minute. After putting it back in, the CD player made the disc ejecting sound one time (no "check CD" message) and stayed off. And now it seems to be working fine. We'll see how long it lasts, though.

Fuse


The 88 Monte came stock with am/fm or am/fm cassette so my guess is your head unit is after market, implying that there may be two in-line fuses on the units power leads

1) 12+ volt Un-switched constant feed (memory)
2) 12+ volt Switched feed (operation)

If you can not locate these fuses from under the dash, then you may need to remove the head unit to inspect the wires that connect to the rear for the in-line fuses.

When you reinstall the unit, be sure to make those in-line fuses accessible from under the dash.

Good luck
