This usually involves removing the plastic bezel around the stereo. Sometimes these plastic bezels hold some buttons for air conditioning and heat, as well as the hazard lights button. These plastic bezels usually are just snapped in with metal clips on the back of them. You can pry them outward and with a good yank they will pop out. Once you have the plastic bezel around the radio removed, there will be 2-4 screws on the sides, or top and bottom. Once you remove those, the whole radio will pull right out of the dash. Then you have to un-clip the wire harness from the car, and unplug the antenna cable. If you plan on putting a different stereo in the car, KEEP the mounting bracket around the stereo, as well as the "wiring harness" that was used to plug into the vehicle harness. That will save you about $50 in parts to put a new stereo in.

    Thanks very much, job done, though I took out the mounting bracket as well. Didn't realise if I left it in it was interchangeable with other makes of radios.

I have good power and ground connections but the amp will not turn on.


Make sure the fuses aren't blown. There should be fuses on the amp itself and an in-line fuse in the live power wire near the car battery. If the fuses aren't blown, make sure the remote wire is connected from the head unit. Then re-check your power and ground connections. The ground should be solidly connected to the vehicle chassis in a paint-free location.

Wiring up a sub-woofer.


The remote wire on the amp is ran to the remote on the head unit.
BUT you can jump the remote to the positive on the amp to turn it on and test it..

As long as they are jumped the amp will be on so beware of dead batteries as a result.

I have a 1998 Pioneer head unit to put in my car. the #is 1256237179. Is There anyway to get a diagram to see how to hook it up?


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Disconnect your car battery. It is vitally important to your safety that you never work on any type of electronic in your car with the battery still connected, as this puts you at risk for electrocution.
2. Remove the old stereo by taking off all the dashboard panels surrounding your stereo, sliding out your old stereo head unit, and unplugging all the wires that are connected to the head unit. Discard the old stereo.
3. Take your Pioneer car stereo head unit and plug each of the positive wires from your car speakers to the positive terminals on the head unit. Take all of the negative speaker wires and connect them to the negative terminals on the head unit.
4. Attach the stereo's black ground wire to a metal bolt or screw located near where the stereo is mounted in the dash.
5. Connect all of the ignition power wires to your Pioneer stereo.
6. Take the harness connector and plug it into your car stereo. Now plug the antenna into the back of your head unit.
7. Slide the stereo back into the dash, screw it in place, and replace the dashboard pieces you removed earlier.
8. Reconnect your car battery, turn the car on and test out your new Pioneer car stereo. Please post comments for more help or information..........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Visonik amp problem... amp goes in and out of protection


Check for intermittent shorts on the speaker leads.

Turn down the volume control on your head unit while operating the amp, you could be over driving the amp.

Remove Speaker leads and reset the amplifier. IF the protection LED still comes on amplifier is faulty.

Below is the link to put in a help request with the manufacture for repair.

Visonik 350watt Amp Doesnt Come On....


With your multimeter set to DC volts, the black meter probe on the ground terminal of the amp (not on the point where the ground wire connected to the vehicle) and the head unit on (so the amp will have remote voltage applied), touch the red probe alternately to the B+ and remote terminals of the amp. If the voltage is below ~11 volts, you need to check the wiring feeding whichever line is too low.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Ok this problem is killing me...


maybe the speaker is bad

First try one thing, switch the rca jacks around and see if the other speaker stops working this time.

If so the problem is in the rca jack or head unit.

If the same speaker is still not working, the problem will be the speaker, you will have no other options left since you changed amplifiers and checked all wiring.

Let me know if this helps you

Amp problems


The head unit probably has 2 control wires. One has 12v when the signal source is the tuner. When you switch to the other sources, the antenna is not needed so the output to that wire is switched off (so the power antenna will go down).

Look for a wire marked amp control or something similar. It will have 12v output any time the head unit is on. Use that one to control your amplifiers.
