  • Curious about radio wiring...

    • Posted Feb 9, 2008 4:05 PM

      Today was was working on getting my cassette deck hooked back up in my car (I'd disconnected it during a "find the short" session a few months ago). Anyway, after finding some instructions I learned that there are three wires involved with the power..

      Yellow -- hooks to always hot pole
      Red -- hooks to accessory pole (so it's off when the key is off)
      Black -- Ground.

      I thought this would be self explanitory until I hooked up the yellow and red and the radio came on. So the question that I post is whether the ground wire is just to provide a really good ground (and the radio grounds through the shell like the really old 1 wire radios) or is this a bad sign?

      Catchya on the Flip Side.....
