Just replaced factoy deck on a 2000 Ranger need help

I installed a kenwood cd player splicing the wires myself, everything went fine besides I can't find a wire that gives constant 12+ power. A bunch of sources say it should be just light green but there is no solid light green wire.

I thought maybe it would be a fuse had blown, but when hooking both power wires up from the the deck to the yellow w/ black striped acc wire it turns on fine with the key.

Would the acc power still work if the fuse is blown? What color should the constant 12V wire be?

The truck is a 2000 Ford Ranger with no options, no a/c, manual windows, and the previous stereo was just am/fm only no tape player.

did you get a wiring harness for the truck? casue if you did then you should not need to find a 12v constant.

No I didn't all the stores only had the harness with the two plugs and not the one with just one big plug like the stock unit has, its all wired up but none of remaining wires have 12v power besides the acc wire, I have it temp. wired with the red and yellow wire from the deck to this cause none of the other wires left are supplying power

this means theres no memory, presets and settings get reset each time its turned off and theres little power for the deck

does anyone one know for sure what color the 12V+ constant wire is for a 2000 Ford Ranger with the basic audio system (am/fm radio only)? Ive seen three sites all saying different things

tried here, installdr, and the 12volt

LG/VT (light green, violet stripe) = Always 12v from fuse 29
RD/BK = 12v in start from fuse 28
YE/BK = 12v in ACC or Run from fuse 20

Info is from the 2000 EVTM.

Yellow/Black was constant power IIRC.

I havent been in there in 2.5 years though. I'll pull it out and tell you if this isnt resolved by the time I get off work today. :-)

I believe that solves my issue I just need to check the fuses then, there is a light green with violet stripe that I had hooked up as the constant power but the wire was dead so it must be that fuse is bad, thanks for info guys!

I didn't think to check them before most cars I've owned the 12v switched power wires were always on the same fuse as the 12v constant but it looks to be they have their own which would be why my yellow/black wire has power with the key turned and the lg/vt wire gave me nothing

I completely forgot about this thread. When I pulled my radio I remembered that I ran my own power and ground wires since I didnt need my amp switch any more.

A DMM would solve your probelm, though. Poke around. Black is ground, find a constant 12v +.
