Sometimes it works. Sometimes it dont even turn on. I checked all wiring and eveything looks like they match up. I have a pink wire that I'm not using. Is this have anything to do with it not turning on sometimes? I am getting frustrated cause I just got this deck from ebay and I really want to run this deck. Someone please help.

Make sure the yellow permanent power wire is connected to a constant 12 volt source otherwise it will reset every time the unit is turned off. If the permanent power yellow is connected, there is a hardware fault in your head unit and will either need to be repaired or replaced. Also ensure the chassis of your head unit has a solid ground and the black negative wire is securely grounded. If you are able to tune it while it's turned on it means the control panel is functioning properly (sometimes the control panel contacts get dirty and prevent the unit controls from working properly)
Apparently, you have no power at the 12 volt battery/memory wire at the radio harness of the vehicle. This wire is white with blue in color. Also, based upon your description, you have connected the battery/memory wire and the accessory wire of the radio to the 12 volt accessory (switched) wire of the vehicle. This wire is white with red in color. Check the radio/ stereo fuse of the car. You may have blown the fuse during your installation. You have no memory at the radio because when you turn off the key, you lose all power to the radio. Also, I mentioned the wire colors just in case you used an aftermarket radio wiring harness. Make sure that the yellow from the Pioneer unit is going to the battery power source and, the red of the Pioneer is going to the switched power source.
Since the unit reuires power from the hand control - cluster switch - the voltage on the turn signal unit must be checked so that it is confirmed that the switch works. If so the fault can be the unit failing to work which must be double checked before it is replaced. Also check the fuse box for loose conection in the circuit.
i would look at the red assesory wire that is to keep power in your head unit even when the car is shut off it is part of the memory for time, radio stations ext.some have fusable link in red wire,sometimes they blow out like a fuse.can be picked up at radio shack.its a cheap fix if thats what it is.some dont have link in red wire.if thats the case its inside the head unit.it is not keeping power in the unit once the car is shut off.FORGETS EVERYTHING LIKE A 90 YR OLD MAN LOL.PS CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS.good luck
find your remote wire. it would help to know the type of car and the kind colors of wires your using as your 3 main wires.
normally in most chevy and fords they are yellow 12 volt.
black as ground.
red sometimes even a tan as your remote start.
deff check your start
1. What type of head unit are you using 2. does the head unit have a Loud feature? - Sometimes you have to press the loud button on certain head units to engage the amplifier.
Try disconnecting your remote wire from the amplifier, grabbing a piece of small 12 or 16 gauge wire and bridging the remote wire with the (+) on the amplifier. if your light does not turn green, then check your fuse and the ground for the amplifier itself and the subwoofers.
When you connect the remote wire to the (+) it should automatically turn the amplifier on even if the cd player isnt on. The reason I want you to try to connect the remote and power is because sometimes the remote wire for the cd player is bad. If it does end up being a bad remote wire from the head unit, then your best fix would be to connect the red wire (ignition 12v) on your head unit to an on/off switch to the remote on your amplifier. You can then turn your amplifier on and off by flipping the switch. If you go to autozone or advanced auto parts you can pick up a toggle switch for about $3.00.
