Car stereo installation

Hi

I have put a new stereo in my car.  I have double checked all the wiring against the wiring diagrams for the car original stereo and the new one and the stereo lights up, the CD plays but no sound comes from the speakers at all.  A friend tells me there is an on line factory amplifier under the passenger seat of my car (Honda Ascot Innova 1992) which is not as powerful as my stereo and this might be the problem.  Any ideas?  please. Also the previous factory fitted stereo had both the +12v ignition wire and the +12b battery wire wired together and the stereo only works if I leave it the same - when I try to seperate it as per the wiring diagram it does not work at all, but I have noticed that now the clock only works when the display button is held in?  odd.  Help... please

    Same problem as Christine7's- unit powers up, all controls work, CD loads and appears to play. But, no sound in any mode (AM/FM/CD) Used brand new harness w/plugs on both ends to install in a 2002 Civic.

    hi...i just bought this head unit used and put it into my 1994 saab 9000 aero and i have the same problem...it has every indication of working, but no sound whatsoever comes out of the speakers. i will be trying a few things to figure out what is going on and ill try to keep yall posted. i have already tried plugging the harness into another pioneer head unit and that unit works fine, so i dont think the harness is at fault.

I had this problem as well. On my harness was a wire for connecting the factory amp. You have to connect the Automatic Antenna wire to the Factory Amp Turn On wire. Should be a blue wire to a blue wire with a white stripe.

Try installing the unit into another vehicle and see if it works.

Your problem is that you need to hook up your blue/white wire to the blue wire. Your cars obviously have built in amplifiers. The adapter harness probably calls the wire the "power antenna wire"... hook it up to your cars amp.

use a test light and a battery. the black is ground, orange is constant and yellow is your turn on and off (ignition). then take a 9volt battery to check your speaker wires. front should be green and light green and gray and light gray. double check it has ben a while, rear is blue and light blue, a yellow and brown. you do not need any other wires in the harness unless you are using a power antenna or amp which you can use the yellow wire for ignition. double check with test light and 9volt battery. the 9volt battery will make the speaker pop noise, you then know you have a speaker when it makes that noise.

Hi Kacie.

Pretty much the only thing to do is remove the harness you spliced into the incorrect harness and use crimp connectors (the GOOD ones, not those cheap plastic blue ones) to match wire-for-wire and restore the original circuitry. THEN have at the correct harness and reinstall the stereo wiring. It's a PITA all right, but it really is the best way to fix your problem.

Sorry about the bad news...

Need to know the wires to install a deck for 97


Red is power to from ignition to cd deck
Yellow is direct power from battery to cd deck to hold the memory.
Black is ground
Blue is only needed if you are hooking up an amplifier.
I always suggest buying a wire harness quick connect system for $5, then you won't have to cut origional car wiring. If by chance you are taking the original wire route, then go to installer.com to find which wires on the car are for what.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.
