  • 1997 CADILLAC DEVILLE

After my car sits for a while (more than 10 minutes) my aftermarket Kenwood CD player along with my cigarette lighter, resets. I verified that the yellow wire from the radio was connected to "constant power" (yellow wire). I switched the "red" and the "yellow" just in case the factory coloring scheme was backwards, this did not work, I switched the wiring scheme back. I checked the fuses, it is the right size fuse and they are all working. The car battery doesnt reset, just the radio and cigarette lighter.

Do you
have the same problem?

To fix this problem I re-wired the ground and constant power wire to run directly from the car radio to the car battery. Never resets now!
