    looking up diagrams proved to be a no go, plus pyle doesnt seem to offer customer support.

Make sure that your car is not amplified!! Some Celicas have an amplifier under the passenger seat. If this is the case, you will need to either bypass that amplifier and go directly to speakers, or you'll need the proper interface plug. The extra rapid heat build-up indicates that your radio is incorrectly wired (channels are mixed up)
Your Pyle radio may have an extra wire for "amplifier turn-on" or for "mute". A standard wiring harness for Toyota (Scosche part TA-02B) should work in dash behind the radio in non-amplified vehicles. If you are still having difficulty, please seek advice from a local stereo installation shop.

When I power up the unit, the camera is displayed immediately, the backup wire turns the screen off.


There's a wire in the head unit harness that's meant to be connected to the vehicle's reverse light wire. If you don't have a rear view camera, this wire should not be connected to anything.

Wireing a Pyle CD player to a honda civic 94


Please reply with a model # and I can help you out.
Usually pink is reserved for Parking Brake Bypass wire.
Is this a DVD player? or Standalone CD?
Solid Blue is amplifier turn-on wire.
(sometimes power antenna wire on cheaper 1-wire brands)
But again, reply with the radio model # and I can help further.

Subwoofer doesn't play through ipod, only radio and cd's


Hook up the remote wire from the head unit (grey w/ orange stripe) to the power antenna wire (blue) on the wiring harness adapter.

Having trouble installing my Pyle PLDBT30U


your part number is Metra 70-5520
It is a standard Ford plug, but is used on your car as well.
Only 1 plug is necessary

i dont think this model has a premium sound upgrade.... could it be a changer cable?

Can the Pyle PLCD-42


Yes there is a couple possible ways.
1. Get 2 RCA Y adapters and split your Preamp Output you will not have any type of fader control this way because you are using a single output.

2. Run one amp from the radio with a set of RCA Cables.
Hook up amp #2 using a Line converter connected to the output of your stereo which will convert you to RCA the just run a cable to the amp..

3. If one of the amps has a High Level Input Run a set of speaker wires from the stereo outputs to the High level Input.
I personally prefer the above 2 methods I find Low Level input sounds better.

Hope this gives you some Ideas and helps
