Is the orange/white wire neccesary?

The pioneer hu i just bought has an orange/white wire for ILL. I just soldered all the wires and the HU doesn't turn on. Is the orange/white wire neccesary? I just had a sony HU on there working and I didn't blow a fuse on the HU.

Towlieee has a little shameless behaviour in the past



yellow = +12v B
black = -12v or ground...
Red = ACC or for testing purposes conect to the yellow wire..

Thats all you need for it to turn on

Yeah you need that, it lights the face up. If it's not turning on right away, it because you have to hit the power button the first time hooking it up, after that you don't have to. But hook that wire up.

Unless Pioneers are different or all these years I have been hooking things up wrong. I think its

Red = +12v to B
Black = -12v ground
Yellow = Acc

If hook up the yellow with the red I'm pretty sure the radio would stay on all the time. (although I know you were stating for testing purposes only). This is granted you originally hooked the red to the +12v red wire from the stock wiring.

Yeah, RED is ignition power and YELLOW is Acc.

It isnt needed at all. It is only if you car has the wire for it. it is used so that when you dim the interior lights of you car that the dash dims too. If it isnt hooked up it will still light up.

Yea I figured it out now. I blew a fuse in my panel except it blew twice. I think wires that havent been soldered and taped are touching causing it to blow. Thx guys.
