Need to know what order to hook up red,yellow,and black wire which to positive which to neg and what size inline fuse is needed for my mcd 5080


Red- power Yellow-Memory Black-Ground

Unless the yellow wire has a fuse built into it then....
Yellow- Power Red-Acc/Ign Black- Ground

If the fuse you are asking about is on the radio t s usually a 10 or 15 amp fuse but if you mean for the power wire for a amp then it depends on the power amount of the amp....look on the amp and find the sum of the fuses on the amp and use a inline fuse that is the next fuse size sum...
Ex. 2 40 watt fuses on the amp then 40+40=80 watts so you would want to get a 100 watt fuse. Also remember you can never go to big for your inline fuse with a amp

I need to know why it says protect on the display screen


usually the red yellow and black are your main three that power on the deck yellow is for the batt red is for the ignition switch that tells the cd player to turn on when the key is turned and the black wire is ground (usually) depending on the car the deck wiring harness is always the same color but the harness wires vary
the illimination is usually and orange wire with a black stripe on it that needs to be hooked up if you have one so the screen turns on
p.constant is usually blue or blue with white stripe that is for amp turn on in some situations or power antenna.

Hope this helps.
