Replacing Aftermarket Stereo Problem...HELP!!! Empty

I just recently went to change out my cd player. It already had an aftermarket one, but I wanted to replace it since it was old and I needed to hook up wires for my subs. I took it out and went to install my new Sony and there was nothing. No power to the cd player at all. I took it out and tried the old one and same problem. I replaced the blown fuse and now the bottom old cd player lights up, but my new one still has no power. Did I hook something up wrong or is it a fuse or what? Please help!!

If your wiring harness is not cut yet you might want to call Crutchfield and have them sell you a SCOSCHE harness to jump between the fac wiring and your stereo.

Make sure your new radio has the wiring correctly wired to the new wiring harness. if you don't have the correct harness or its not wired correctly it wont work. also check when the new radio is hooked up to you may need to push the reset button on the unit. smile

My guess is the harness jumper needs pinouts changed to make the new stereo work. I have not seen this installation before - but I bet he's got a jumper from GM to DIN, and the issue might be the DIN plugs are specified as to shape and pinout but which pin does what is a recommendation IIRC. It also might be the new radio has an issue - rare but it happens. There is a lot of crap going on in retail nowadays. For instance, recently a Staples clerk was busted for stealing. What she was doing - Staples has a kinda liberal return policy. For instance you can return a printer ink cartridge after you use it a little if you're not happy with it. She would find the ink cartridges that had been purchased for cash and "return" them, removing the money from the till. Staples does not put slightly used ink carts back into stock... Caught in an audit.

Would not surprise me if that "new" CD player had an issue and was returned to stock or some such - but again I have NO idea and I don't mean to insult anybody. I just mean to point out that all kinds of stuff goes on and beating on a broken CD player won't fix it.

In summary - issues might be you need a differently configured jumper with the same plugs, or you player is "bad new" or there is a wiring problem in the dash - check the connectors and look at the wires especially on that jumper to find breaks or cuts that might have resulted from flexing wires near the connectors. Happens.

I would try the Sony radio directly to the battery, just to be sure it powers up. Tie the red and yellow wires together and put them on the positive post, and the black wire on the negative post. This will power your radio.
