    Need new power for cd player

    I have had my 95 grand prix se for a while now and its always had some wierd electrical stuff, the seat belt chime+light come on only when the seatbelt is off, headlights on, and the unlock button is pressed down, there is a funny buzz comming from the dash when the headlights are turned on while the car is off, etc. All fuses in the car are good. All wire connections are secure. I removed the stock radio to install a new cd player using a wiring harness made for my car. My cd player will only turn on when my headlights are switched on, when I try inserting a cd, the cd player flickers and takes the cd in very slowly, now I cant get my cd out. Is there a way to rewire the power to my cd player so I can make it work right without having to spend hundreds of dollars on a mechanic to fix it?

    And just wire it direct to the battery with some alligator clips or something.

    sounds like you might have wired your radio's power wire conencted to the wrong wire-probably dimmer or illumination wire. Make sure you have it wired with a constant 12V and switched ignition, not dimmer and illumination unless the radio has a wire for that.

    Also, I will restate this...this site is dedicated to installing carpcs, not headunits. There is a sticky that you might to read. hint hint
