HELLO
Today I was connecting my aftermarket radio everything was working. I disconnected the radio to put my dash back in I tryed to connect it again and it didnt turn on. I think I might of let wires touch but now my red wire does not have any power but my yellow wire does. I went ahead and took a wire and went to the fuse box located under my hood and saw the radio back up fuse was blown. I replaced it and still nothing soo I took the wire and connected it to my back up radio fuse and the radio did turn on soo I am guessing its something between the fuse box and the red wire in my dash. The fuses under my steering wheel are fine also i'm baffled?

Hello -

To better assist you is your model the CX, DX, EX, GX, HX, or LX and what is the engine size in liter?

Now if I understand you correctly. The only current problem is you have no power to the red wire with the key on?

My car is a honda 98 civic ex. I was trying to connect an aftermarket radio with an aftermarket harness I unpluged the harness to put in my dash and I think the wires might of touched so now the red wire has no power. Yellow wire does have power. I went up to the fuse box under my hood and connected a wire to my back up radio fuse and ran it to the radio thru the outside of the car turn the key and the radio turned on. I checked the fuses on the driver side they all seem to be fine. I know I could probably run a wire from my batt. The the radio with a fuse in between but I would really like to do it the right way?

Hello -

I have attached the wiring diagram in parts.......so you can see it better and print it out and tape it.

From what I see the constant hot is fuse 47 under the hood white/blue wire and the fuse 28 under the dash is switched on yellow/red wire. Check those to see if blown and use an ohm meter or new known good fuse.
