    I have removed the radio from my 1995 Olds Cutlass to work on the CD player
    and have the complete pinout. I tried just connecting 12v and ground and it
    would not power up. What other pins to I need to supply power to? Security
    has not been set on this radio. Since the problem is with the intake
    mechanism on the CD player, I do not need to connect the speakers.
    Thank you,

    There is another wire, hot all the time for the clock and station memory. In
    the past this wire was orange and the radio would not work unless it is

    I would suspect this here, if you have a pinout you should be putting power to
    two connectors, not just one.

    Good luck, as far as I'm concerned when I'm ready for a CD in the car I'll get
    one of those fake cassettes and a portable. Then when it breaks my dashboard is
    safe, and for $20 I can throw the offending unit out the window (unless a cop
    is watching) and just buy a new one.

    Over the years I've learned, less intergration and more seperation of
    components. Look how people get ripped off with TV/VCR combos ! And they never
    know. Just as much price, less components (more profit), less functionality
    (can't record one and watch the other channel) and to top it off to the
    manufuckturer's delight is the functional interdependence, and being built into
    a single cabinet helps too !

    Be careful in there, those things are delicate (flimsy), precision (finicky)
    and high tech (they shut down before you can get much info on what's going on).
    Actually if I'm not mistaken these things should accept a disk and be able to
    eject it with the key off. I might be mistaken.
