Dual MXD55 W/6/5 SP CD Problems

Ok, so I took out the old JVC receiver and labeled all wires that I disconnected. I then connected the Dual MXD55 W/6/5 SP CD Weather Receiver and nothing.... The red light flashes, but nothing comes on. I push the power button, and nothing comes on. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Why does the red light flash when accessory is switched off and the face plate is removed?

Will it drain the battery?

Make sure the speaker grounds are connected to the speaker ground wires on the deck and not the "chassis" ground. also make sure both power wires are hooked up to a power source. the thinner power wire is supposed to be a switched source (like the ignition key or an accessory switch) that turns the unit on and the thicker one is a constant source which actually powers the deck once the switched source is turned on.

Hi...ihave acd receiver in my car and it turns on but in the display "chk wiring then reset" everithing is conected ok but nothing is working

its most likely a short in your speakers, try disconnecting all over the speakers leaving only the remote ground and power wire connected and see if it still has an error. if not, hook up each speaker individually and turn it on after each one, and once you connect one and it fails again youll know thats the bad speaker. if it still errors with the speakers disconnected then its almost certainly your ground, if thats the case youll want to find a bolt behind the cd player thats attached to metal and make a new ground wire.

Unit turns itself off after diplaying code "check SP wire"

My guess, guess, check CLOSELY the SPeaker wires - "Check SP wire" make sure all of the bare portion of the wire is into the terminal. No bare wire touching another bare wire both at the receiver and at the speakers. Also, if the wiring is not continuous, check all connections of speaker wire. Disconnect all but one, play it like that. If no problem, label that as good, disconnect another for several days, when one shuts Rec. off, check wires closely for that speaker.

Check SP wires

There is an internal short that is being detected. This is probably a defective output transistor that is somewhat sensitive to heat. This should be a straightforward repair with a parts cost in the $20 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost.
