It seems that you already check the red wire for positive connection. Check also the black wire for negative and the wire for the antenna.

I own a 1999 pontiac grand am gt. I was hooking an amp up to a set of subs and got everything to work. When I finished and put my dash back together it all stopped working. My head unite (alpine cdm-7871)...


Get a multimeter cheap on ebay ,and test the red (positive wire from the radio with the key tuned to on position. should read 12v.. Key off should have 0 volts. Then check the yellow wire, should read 12 volts continuous with the car on or off. If you don't get a reading from yellow wire, you can run it from the battery into the car. Red, you would have to run from the fuse box and should only have electricity with acc on (key in ignition) If both red and yellow wires read 12v. you could have grounding issues. Use the black wire from the head unit and wire it to metal. These are the only 3 wires you have to worry about.

I bought a JVC KD-R620 and I can't get To power on without having the ignition wire(red) and the battery wire(yellow) connected. And it won't save my settings either..I don't have a blown fuse...


Ok, just so I get this right. You want this unit to power up, without hooking the 2 power wires??? Red is constant power, yellow is switched power. Did you use a wiring harness to hook the radio up or did you hard wire it? I alway recommend a harness. This would make the install easier. If the unit works witht them wired, use it.

My sony explod cd for my car wont power on everything is hooked up and it will eject the cds but nothing else..what do i do?


check the radio fuse on your car most likely its bad. If you pull out the radio the red wire should have power when the key is turned on and if not you have a fuse problem

Sub cutting out


Check the 12v wire running from the battery to the amplifier. Also the sony explode is a garbage subwoofer compared to the Alpine.. sony (they say 1200w max but its more like 100w to power the thing) Amp could be going. Is the amplifier hot when running. If there is a burnt smell comming from the amp, its the amplifier

Got a new Kenwood KDC-128 car radio recently, fitted it but the radio presets would not stay when the ignition was turned off. Then it stopped working altogether and I noticed the 10amp fuse at the back...


you need to hook the yellow wire off the back of the radio up straight to the battery this keeps memory power to the head unit then wire the wires in color coded sequence red to red black to black so on and so forth if this doesnt fix it you might want to think about replacing head unit

Car stereo help


There are some tests you can perform for checking the stereo. Yes, you are right, there is a yellow and red wire. Yellow constant power, red is switched throught the ignition. During the installation, you may have blown a fuse. A bigger fuse is not needed, stick with the same size if you find a bad fuse. Hook the red and yellow wire together for TESTING PURPOSES to one or the other of the hot wires in the vehicle. This will also test to see if you have a bad fuse. If the stereo powers up in one or the other power connections in the car and works, you have a blown fuse. I have seen some fuses be located under the hood of the car near the car battery. Hope this helps, Bob

Jensen VM9311/ UV7i wont turn on!!?


Yo, I've got the perfect solution to your problem. Pull out the head unit from your dash. Then, remove the wiring harness carefully from the unit. Now, push in the yellow power wire (even jiggle it a little) making sure it's tightly snug the small port of the wiring harness. Then, plug the harness back into the unit and try turning it on. I've found that the wires come lose easily on this unit. hit me back up at Darkintel74@aol.com.
