Depending on your car the looms are different fron standard wiring on all decks. Basically you have red which you will connect to a power source with the correct fuse inline. This wire can be taken from the ignition source if you want the deck to work only when the key is in the ignition or directly to a the battery (still with an inline fuse) if you want the deck to play even when the keys are removed from the ignition. This is risky as you might forget to switch off the deck and it will drain the cars main battery. Next you need to connect the yellow wire to an always on power source or directly to the battery, again with an inline fuse. This wire will allow the deck to retain your settings. The black wire must be connected to any metal eathing point that is connected to the cars body so the deck will be connected to the negative power supply. \ That's the electric current connections done. You should then have 4 pairs of wires for the speakers, usually green, white, purple and grey. They consist of one strand in a single colour(positive) and one strand of the same colour with a black stripe(negative). These are for your speakers-front right, front left, rear right and rear left. Off hand I'm not sure which colour goes where but it should be on a sicker on the deck or in the manual. Alternatively connect them up and figure it out using fader and balance controls on the deck. The other wires are blue for an electric antenna or as a signal to an amplifier to switch on. Sometimes you'll get one for a subwoofer this ones colour varies from deck to deck. Lastly if your deck can play DVDs or video files there might be a pink one. This is supposed to be connected to the handbrake so that you can only watch video when the car is parked and the handbrake is on. You can bypass this by connecting to any metal earthing point on the car like the black negative wire. If you have any other wires they maybe for steering controls and those are dependant on the vehicles wiring configuration, but are not necessary for the deck to operate. One last thing, instead of connecting directly to all the wires I suggest you get a wired plug leads and wire the deck to one end and the other end to the wires in the car. Take note of wiring both ends to the corresponding pins. This will make it easier if you want to take out the deck and put it back in. Hope this helps
My suggestion would be to buy a wiring harness and a dash mounting kit. After that unscrew or pull out the console/dash part thats around your factory deck. Then unscrew the bolts/screws holding the factory one in place. Remove it. Plug the wiring harness into the factory wire plug. Pull harness wires through the mounting kit. Attach the corresponding colored wires from the harness to your new deck. Slide your deck into the mounting kit and secure it in place. Most decks have little prongs that you can pry up to **** up against the mounting kit so it wont slide out without pushing those down (makes it more secure and harder to steal). Place deck with mounting kit into area factory deck was. Put the screws/bolts back into place tightly. Place console/dash part back on. You will need the mounting kit (99% of new decks are smaller than the factory). Wiring harness is optional but recommended.
Your deck is bolted in with (2) 8mm bolts in the back. If you can't access them by removing the ash tray area you will have to lie on your back on the floor of the vehicle. Look behind the radio and you will notice a metal bracket with the bolts. A specialty tool called a "skew driver" is sometimes needed. What that does is enable a drill to have a 90 degree angle so you can attach a socket and remove the bolts
whay type of vehicle are you putting the cd deck in ? if it has a factory amp , it may have one amp per speaker , get the specs on the new vehicle to find out . using a "free harness" is always a good idea as well , it plugs directly into youre vehicles factory radio harness and has labeled wires coming off the end so u know whats what there .
Aux input on the back depends if there was a aux button on the front and the brand of deck. If one is there then you dont need Best Buy to do it. removing the deck is not as hard as people make it seem. The best way to remove the deck to check is find a manual for removal; exp: chiltons, hayne or even get it from crutchfield. Be careful though, some decks may have the aux button and a 3.5mm jack in the back but the jack is sometimes used for a remote. So get the mauals for the deck you have and the manual for removal.
It depends which vehicle it has been installed, some radios have to be screwed behind the dash but most you will just need sony removal keys, remove the trim and slide the keys (one each side) down the radio and then slide it forward if you're lucky it will come out without much force. Have fun!
Do you get sound when you use the radio? If so, the blue wire from the back of the radio needs to be disconnected and you need to use the blue/white wire instead.
If that doesn't work, try connecting either a test speaker or one speaker at a time. Your problem could be a short in the wiring - if the (+) wire to a speaker is touching the (-) wire, the deck will cut out all sound to keep itself from overheating. Let me know if you need more help.
Hi. SOunds like another case of power problems. Your deck has 2 power wires. One is yellow th eother is red. One is constant 12 volt battery power, the other is a switched 12 volt power, only has power with the ignition key on or on accesory. Get yourself a test light. I almost bet you do not have the constant 12 volt power to the deck, therefore your deck cannot hold its presets...
