    dvd player help

    im in the middle of fitting a dvd player to my car there are 3 wires all colour coded with plugs on which is fine i know where they go there is an earth which i know where it goes,the problem is i have a red and yellow wire which i have no idea what to do with ?

    am i right in thinking these need to attach to the red and yellow wires on the back of the head unit ?

    yea thats what i said m8! Basically there the power leads...
    If youve got an amp in the boot you can take the power off that if not then run them from the power on the headunit...

    as far as i can rember yes m8... The worst u will do is blow the headunit fuse...
    (i dont even think it will do that though when in done it, think it just gets no power at all)

    You basically just need to connected them to the wires on the headunit... piggy back them or whateva its called...
    Sould work then m8
