Dark Green Ignition radio wire ( no power )

Dark Green Ignition radio wire ( no power )

Postby IceFire [OP] » Jul 11 2016, 7:14pm

I am hoping someone can help me out with this issue :

My 2001 Silverado has an after market stereo in it that every time I reach for the gear shift my hand touch's the open button which then flips the CD panel out.
To avoid this I have decided to reinstall the factory stereo which I have to rewire back to the factory plugin.
While I was checking the wires from the harness to match them to the stereo plug the dark green ignition wire which has a 12v current touched the stereo housing and sparked causing the wire to go dead.
I have checked the fuses under the hood and on the left side interior panel and all radio fuses are good.
My question is: are there other area's I can check to see why there is no power to this wire ? ( dark green ignition wire )

any help would be appreciated !


Cheers

Are there any other component or systems on the truck that are inop?

I am sure you probably realize now that playing with wiring like that isn't a good idea with the battery connected.

But, I would start trying different systems in the truck to see if you can find one that isn't working. Otherwise another check of the fuses might be prudent. How did you go about checking them the first time? A simple visual inspection is not adequate.

The green wire may be used to supply 12v. to a power antenna.
The fuse for it is probably inside the radio itself.

After you replace the fuse another mod I have seen done with these shifters is have someone at a machine shop put a little more of a bend in it. This will prevent from touching the radio while trying to shift. Just an idea. Good luck.

RDO 1 Fuse, 10A in the dash fusebox.

The green wire may be used to supply 12v. to a power antenna.

Since GM has been known to use components across many platforms, it could have been like that. I wasn't looking at a wiring diagram and just made a stab. Oh, well.

Thanx for all the replies guy's much appreciated.
The aftermarket stereo was installed prior to me purchasing it so the wiring was all new to me. There is no power antenna on my 01 but I did take a closer look at the RDO fuse that is on the left side panel and sure enough that was the issue. It blew the fuse when the green wire shorted on the stereo housing.
That dark green wire is a 12v positive and is what powers the stereo , the orange wire is what is live all the time to hold the memory.
Tried it out and sounds good.
Cheers
