giving you a diagram wouldn't be possible as we're not certain about the model of the vehicle. However, a hint is you would require two types of (+)ve supplies (assuming it's (-)ve grounded vehicle).

That is a constant power line to power the memory and the clock and a power line from ACC(+) to power the setup. Get a test lamp for yourself and find out two types of (+)ve lines from the fuse board and wire the setup accordingly. Read the setup manual for which line requires a feed from constant supply and accessory supply.

Edit - if you find it bit difficult to grasp what I've said in short, best is to get a professional support or service as you might end up blowing the setup, leaving out set fire the vehicle.

Hi My car is Lancer A72 (1976) its already have a old radio fixed in but its not working and no speakers to see. so i want to just forget about that and fix a new one. not a very advance setup just a basic cd and radio player from peta market or a second hand used one even ok.

attached here with is the simplest wiring diagram I could come up with. Hope this helps and don't blame me if you get your setup burnt in the procedure. post-54-069747500 1297686788_thumb.jpg

A radio that dousnt have any speakers ? Lol

Machan you will definitely need a multimeter for this job, You will have to open the fuse box and find a line that turns on with the ignition (or use the cigarette lighters line) and you will also need a line that stays on even when ignition is off for the memory functions in your radio.

If you have purchased a radio already you will have to take a pinout diagram and give the proper voltages, otherwise you could fry it !

This might sound complicated to you, cause it is ;)

I so id go with JD's suggestion and find a professional for the job. any local electric shop or electric bass should be able to sort things out for you :alc:

No bro. There is a line that turns on without the keys like the power line for your lights ( that should be the constant Power line for the memory clock)

And there is another line that only gives power when the ignition is turned on like the line for your lighter ( this should be the line attached to your radios main power)

Different cars came with different diagrams so its hard to tell what is what and considering that your car is a little old im pretty sure our makabass fellows have messed with your electricals. so the bast way to figure it out is by using a multi/volt meter and find a fuse that gives power always and one that gives power when the ignition is on :D
