My sony explod cd player
Do you have an antenna plugged into the back of the radio?
If you do, you may have a bad antenna or a bad tuner.
Cd player reads error 04
The error 4 in most Sony stereos is an error that comes up when the laser pickup doesn't read the disc correctly. This happens most of the time because of a dirty lens in the laser pickup. If anyone smokes in the vehicle the smoke may be on the lens causing the error code. Try a wet type CD cleaning disc to see if it helps.

all your wires are color coated for a reason you want to make sure before trying to figure out anything that you do indeed have your new wiring harness and then the harness that connects to your reciever those two harnesses will match color for color every wire will tie to each other your ground your power your ignition your audio and so forth if you have any question on what color of wires go were look at your manual to your reciever it will tell you. you have red, yellow and black those will be your ground your constant 12+ and you ignition or acc wire. the rest is just for sound to your speakers. you will have a blue wire that says remote on it do not mess with that wire unless you are hooking an amp up you may have a an orange wire coming out of the unit wich you need not be concerned with it is the wire that would be used if you were tying the dimmer switch to you dash to the unit but do not mess with that wire either you should be in the clear but if anything else comes up that your not familar with give me a call i can walk you though it my names josh 832 248 4144

I have power going to the unit yet there is no
I have a Sony CDX GT 530U. I had a problem with no display and I thought no power period. I did not try to install a CD, so maybe I did have power to the CD motor but no display. This was frustrating because I could get the old factory Nissan radio to power up and work so I thought I had a dead Sony unit. After a lot of monkeying around, I discovered I had blown a fuse while installing the unit (you should disconnect the negative terminal of the battery when installing the radio... which I thought I skip, that was a no no.). I had checked the auto fuses, those cheap little plastic fuses behind a panel below the stearing column inside most cars, at least all the fuses I thought went to the car stereo. Turns out I missed one that was labeled "Batt" or something like that, which was the constant power wire to the car stereo. There was another fuse for the Accessory power to the car stereo (the main juice went the key is tuned to ACC or Start position). Turns out the Sony unit display runs off the constant power, or at least the unit on/off button runs off the constant power wire, so even though the ACC power wire was live, the Constant power wire had a blown fuse and the unit would not turn on. Check all your fuses inside the car, I bet that's your problem. Constant power on my Nissan Sentra was a 7.5A fuse, while the ACC power ran off a 15A fuse, but your vehicle may vary. Good luck.
Dies when turn on lights
Check the wires of the stereo ,check the ground and disconect him and put it to a chassis part, some cars got a black wire for dimming the lights maybe that´s your case.Good luck
My new car is crazy
He probably needed to disconnect the battery to perform a repair or diagnostic. Then, as it is not factory, did not hook the power wire back up.
Sterio not workin
you may have fried it but check the fuses and find the exposed hot wire look for one thats black and melted and seel it up good
Installing a sony xplod in to my girlfriends fiat punto
If I were in your shoes I would hardwire it, Run the red wire directly to fuse box or battery, run yellow wire to switched circuit in fuse panel, and isolate the black ground wire somewhere inside the dash, I'm in America and have not wrenched on any FIAT's, but in my expirence some manufactures doe things proprietary, give this a shot.
If you stop by any car stereo shop, you should be able to purchase a wiring harness that will plug into your car's plug. You can then wire it up to the wires coming from your sony by matching up the standard wire colors.
