    Default Help with new sterio

    hi,

    ive got a double din chinese cd player off ebay. on the top is a sticker showing the wiring diagram. below...



    ive just bought the connecting wire from halfords and on the back of the box it shows what each coloured wire does. below...



    it just doesnt want to come on. on the connecting lead the red wire has a bare end. where is this supposed to go to?

    is this the remote wire?

    Red goes onto a switched ignition live mate. Normally the cigarette lighter live is used as it only goes live when the ignition is switched on

    One end should be into the back of the stereo, the other goes to the cigarette lighter
