originally had no radio when I got it, just bought a cd player/radio and harnesses..installed no prob. Its not getting power though. Im wondering what to do next. I reckon Ill get a volt meter to check the AC wire. Other than that Im at a loss as what to do. Any thoughts on troubleshooting this?
I'm a dummy with electronics... so I need it practically drawn out. the red and yellow are my power source? I hooked the volt meter red lead to the red and black to the yellow and get 12+. all other wires are for speakers and are correctly hooked up to corresponding color. ground is set. this jeep originally had no radio so I'm at a loss getting one installed
If it is a modern unit, it will probably have a memory circuit which stores your radio pre-tunes and the CD position when you power the radio down. This needs to have a permanent 12V+ (I believe you call it the hot wire in the US) or the radio will not work.
