    Anyone good with car cd players and conections?

    I have a clairon cz109e cd/mp3 player in my car, i done a straight swap with the original cd player and used the original leads etc, for some reason ever since i put the cd player in it doesnt always turn on, sometimes i have to turn the engine on and off in order to get the cd player to turn on, also it doesnt save the radio stations or play from the last track, could i be using the wrong cables? i have a S reg peuget 306

    thanks

    Permanent live and ignition live are probably switched. Easy to test with a couple of bits of wire, a bulb and a pic of an ISO connector on google.

    It does not have a live connection to it. You are running off ignition, you need to connect the red and yellow wire together to the 12v source on the cd player.

    Guessing you are not familiar with soldering etc..

    The best thing to do is to 'Scotch Lock' the connections together..

    Means you do not need to cut wires or do any soldering.

    Just Google Scotch Locks and you will see how easy it is.

    Look at the red and yellow wires. Do they have bullet connectors on them?

    Putting the red & yellow wires together may cause the battery to drain overnight so not wise. Shengis has the right answer. Look for the red & yellow wires. They may need to be swapped. Simple enough to do if there are bullet connectors inline. If not, wires would need to be cut & soldered for a decent result. Otherwise, crimp bullet connectors on the cut ends to join.

    Or you could stick a small flatheaded screw driver down both contacts and swap them over?! Much easier!
