I have an EL FALCON, i have removed the factory radio/cassette player, installed the new CD player, then i noticed that there are 2 or 3 wires left over, one is green with a yellow stripe and the other is a solid brown. When i was trying to find the (+) positive wire ( using a multi-meter ) i touched one of these wires to another one causing my car to lose power to the new cd player, i then turned the ignition off and back on again and i had power again. But when it came time to goto work ( about 5 - 10 mins later ) it wouldn't start! It will crank over, but will not run. The flashing red security led light on the dash that used to flash, doesn't anymore. I phoned my local motor mechanic, and they said to leave the ignition on for an hour, take the computer out and leave it for an hour to reset itself then try to start it (haven't tried anything yet). I have had people tell me that those 2 ( or 3 ) wires left over was for the immobiliser, and will not work without the factory radio. But personally i think that when i touched one wire to another it broke a fuse somewhere. i checked the fuses near the drivers steering wheel they are still good, is there any under the hood that i could of blown not making the car start? any infomation would be great on getting it working again. i dont use my internet much (due to long hours of work) so feel free send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
or give me a call or txt on 0401905706 (optus pre-paid).
