I'm installing an aftermarket radio (Pioneer DEH-P30001B) in my 2001
impala. I bought a harness so the wiring would match up properly, and
I have an installation kit to adjust from my old double din factory
installed radio to this single din dash radio, with a storage pocket
Problem is, the wires have all been connected and soldered, I've
plugged it all in, but the radio won't come on. The engine starts up
fine, everything else seems to work. What could cause the problem??
There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the fuses either.
Thanks for your help!
The volt meter is your friend.
There are two power lines to the radio. One is hot at all times and
has a very small fuse. The other one is hot when the ignition is on
only, and has a larger fuse. Measure each with the meter and make
sure they are correct.
There may also be a seperate ground connection for the radio. Measure
it with the meter and make sure you have a good solid ground return.
"C'est un Nagra. C'est suisse, et tres, tres precis."
I'll try to give this a shot, thanks for the advice. I'll update when
I know more.
You think this could be an issue, even though my radio worked this
morning, before I installed the aftermarket?

Looks like it was an electrical issue with the car, actually, that
I've had for a while. I sort of had to cheat and pull power not from
the ignition. Nonetheless, it's fixed. The voltage meter did help
though! Thanks for all your help!
