Help With Electrical Problems

Hey, I have a 2000 Prelude SH, and i have an issue with some electrical stuff... I was driving and the sony deck just turned off and made the beeps like i turned my car off, and if i unplug it and plug it back in, it makes them again. The cigarette lighter doesnt work either... i have checked my fuses and none are blown! does anyone know what may have happened?

Re: Help With Electrical Problems

Do you or have you had a wire inserted along with the fuse? If so it sounds like you have a loose fuse. The other option is your experiencing the dreaded yet notorious ignition switch failure and it is only affecting the accessory wire and has not yet hit the ingnition.

That wouldn't cause the cig lighter to not work.

Re: Help With Electrical Problems

ok, so i just figured out that somehow my stereo can be powered from the wires in the back that were connected to the amp... if the power and remote wires touch it works, if ground touches power it sparks a lot. but if i do that i have to disconnect them to turn it off, or it always remains on. is there any way to fix this to where it will turn off with the car? because when i disconnect them my deck loses time, settings, and saved radio stations... and its frustrating

Re: Help With Electrical Problems

The stereo should have a memory positive wire that should be connected to the circuit that always has power. Then the wire that turns the radio on should be connected to an accessory wire so it turns on when the key is on.
