View Full Version : HU install, harness gives constant, but not switched 12v

10-14-06, 07:35 PM
I just bought the wiring harness from Best Buy and installed a Pioneer HU. It works fine so far, but I seem to have the opposite problem as everyone else. The red wire that is supposed to be switched power has no power with the key on, and the yellow is constant, at least so far, may switch off after some time, not sure yet.

So, anybody know what's going on and how I can get my switched power?

I was surprised how good the Pioneer sounds through the stock speakers, but they will be replaced eventually. Amp and sub will be installed soon too.

I have Eclipse 6x9s barley used for sale and a real nice ported box for a single 12 for sale also. PM if you are interested.

You haven't figured it out.

Run your own constant. And double check your wiring. The red should work fine.

get a volt meter and test the harness connections. You will be able to tell what the batt + and constant + very quick

you may want to run your own constant battery + wire, as stated above
