    how to connect new head unit

    I just bought a new pioneer 9800bt and im trying to install it in the center console where the cigarette lightter and ash tray used to be, the head unit fits in there nicely with a few little tweaks. I am trying to leave the factory head unit and wiring intact and am running new wire from the speakers to the new head unit so that when i get rid of the 98 riviera i can make a smooth transition back to the factory, i want to use the power from the cigarette lighter on the head unit but in my attempts i have been unsuccessful in powering the unit up, i am unsure of what needs to be connected and how for it to power up, any ideas and or suggestions would be of great help, thanks

    Have Car Audio Specific Questions?

    This forum is dedicated to CarPCs and installing them in your car.

    The car audio forum is dedicated to integrating your car audio system with your CarPC.

    For specific questions related to car audio equipment systems that do not include CarPCs, I would recomend checking out car audio specific forums:
    et. al.

    There is a chance that someone on here might have an answer for you, I would just hate for you to wait around for it when I know you could get an answer much quicker on a dedicated forum.

    Good luck.
