My stereo wont work

Post by JustNeedhelp »

So ive finally got my system up and going(partially) and i was cruising down the street when i felt something over my clutch but i needed to shift so i did. turns out that wasnt a good idea, the second i did my cd player turned off. Ive looked at it over and over again but cant find where the wire goes. Also does anyone know what that little switch next to my hood release is for?

sounds to me like it may be a ground wire, just guessing though, check these 3 main wires red yellow and black, make sure all those are connectedto you wiring harness to your deck, and the switch whoever you got the car off of may had've had something hooked up to it, c where the wire leads to..............

I'd say that the wire that came loose(if I got you correctly) is the constant power wire. But why is it going to the drivers side of the car?

The loose wire is a thin red one and its coming from the back of my car i think to my amp.I followed it a bit under the carpet and it branched off into some smaller wiring.
