stereo trouble


Active Member
ok so i have a 2000 mustang gt and it came with a factory installed alpine head unit and i just got a new dual audio unit, and i matched up all the wires and its not working. this isnt my first stereo install so i kinda know what im doing but did i screw something up or what?

Short on details, but check power, ground, and remote wire. All straight forward. If that still fails, maybe try hooking up the old unit just for a sanity check. Maybe your new unit is a dud.

If the stereo doesn't have an amp turn on lead use the blue wire for the power antenna.
no, use the blue wire marked 'remote.' Some models stop sending power to the power antenna when you switch to CD, satellite radio, ipod, aux input, ect ect. Not the best plan.
