Exclamation EF Falcon - Radio Cassette Deck - Wiring Guide!!!

By following the below guide, you should be able to install a new deck, by yourself. However, there is one (unspoken) problem which I and many others have had during the installation of a new deck.

What Happened: Once all wires were connected properly, I heard my deck receiving power, but I wouldn’t turn on. After some troubleshooting, I realised the only reason for this was the ACC (Accessories Ignition) Position wire must not have been initiating the power on sequence for my deck.

Resolution: Connect both your "Constant Battery Voltage" and "ACC Power" wires together (from the new deck), to the factory "Constant Battery Voltage" wire. The deck will be NOW be receiving constant power (whether the car is on, or off) as power is supplied directly from the battery, AND initiated by the battery (NOT the Ignition). So basically, your deck may drain your car's battery if left on when the car isn't running. But this shouldn’t be a problem for most people, as newer decks have removable faces, and the deck wont power on when the face of the deck has been removed.

Note: Take care when installing a new deck as to not short out any wires (ie: factory deck "constant battery voltage" wire - touches metal) - If this happens you will blow the fuse which controls the starter engine, power windows and central locking! You may have also blown the "radio \ cigarette lighter" fuse. This may also need replacing. Always carry a spare 15 Amp fuse… Just in case.

Re: EF Falcon - Radio Cassette Deck - Wiring Guide!!!

Couldn't you just fix the problem with your 'Accessories Power' cable?
