Trace wire from front left door to fuse box. It has probably been earthed to another location when installing the radio. It should trace back to the same place as the other doors. When you have your car on, your electrical circuits change from battery to ignition (alternator) power. Find the common connection for your doors interior lights and radio, make sure each one's positive leads is connected to the battery via a fuse or relay/fuse. Sounds complex, but once you get into it, it will be obvious. A test light is a very useful tool for autoeclectrical work, they are cheap and easy to use. Consider getting one for this job, if you havn't already got one.

Changed your stock radio with a indash radio now your 2000 323ci wont start but the radio works does anybody know what to do?

put in the stock radio, does your car start, if it does then its the radio causing the problem, if not then more problems then the radio. if it does start with the stock radio in i would think the aftermarket radio is causing some kind of fault in the car, perhaps the radio is sending a faulty message in the i-bus telling the car not to start. i would jump out any bus wires so they are not routed through the aftermarket radio and see what happens. good luck.

I had to rewire my aftermarket stereo to work with the '98 Taurus which uses basically the same system as a '96 model. Although some of my color coding isn't the OEM standard so it won't help you here. You need to buy a new speaker harness if you are changing out the stereo because first off, the tuner is in the back of the car on the driver side trunk. The radio is actually just a receiver in this model of vehicle between the years of 1996-1999. There is no antenna line running to the front.

No brake lights and radio?

In most vehicles the brake lights and radio are two separate curcuits. Start with the brake lights being most important, check the brake light fuse, if it is not blown check for 12 volts at the fuse with a test light. If you have 12 volts at the fuse check the brake light bulbs. If the bulbs are good I would suspect the brake light switch is at fault. Also check the fuse that protects the radio. Not knowing what type of vehicle you have, most fuse block assemblies are located under the left side of dash.

How do you reset the oil sensor light on a Chevy Monte Carlo?

"I am assuming you mean the oil change light. If so, turn the key to the on position, do not start the engine. press the gas pedal three time all the way to the floor. the light should start to blink. turn the key off and then start the car. the light should blink a few more times and then stay off. if this does not work then it is something with the radio that needs to be done that i do not know how to do." Here's the radio part... Turn your radio off. Hold down the tuning button for about 10-15 seconds. You should see some options and a menu like look pop up on the screen. Using the seek button, scroll through until you see "Oil Life." Press the tuning button again, it should say "Reset." Press the tuning button one more til, it will see "Done." Turn your radio back on, and you're done.


Removal of radio from 1998 forester?

I think I understand the reason for your confusion. You start under the console lid, removing the screws under plastic buttons at the front of the lid and, as I recall, screws at the bottom of the console tray. You then work your way forward, removing each panel until you get to the radio.
