  • Power problem.

    I have a pioneer premeir in my Jetta IV. I recently pulled it out to hard wire my Sirius Sportster Power line to the wiring harness. I have the ground on ground and the power line <to the Sportster> on the constant power line of the harness.

    The Sportster is working fine but I plugged my head unit back in and nothing is coming on. A voltmeter is showing that I have power all the way to the clip that plugs into the deck. All I can figure is when I had the wires unwrapped they bumped. I was trying to do a quick job didn't disconnect the battery : / But the deck was not plugged in then so I don't know why it would have shorted anything in there and as far as I can tell the lines have power all the way to the cliip.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Did you check the fuse in the headunit? Some pioneers have one right above the wiring connection.

      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.

              Did you check BOTH the constant and switch leads?

                I did and my switched lead is not good. I'm trying to find a fuse on that line but i'm not having any luck.
