I replaced my stereo system in my kia spectra 2008, and now my car won't start.
I had a friend of mine come over to help me replace a radio in my car.
Everything went smoothly for the most part, only to find out now that my car
won't start. Think he might have crossed some wires or something because
now there is a black wire behind the dash and i don't know where to plug it
into. Its black with a little tiny harness plug and i dont for the life of me know
whats wrong or if that could be the issue. I jumped the battery and it worked
fine, no fuses are blown, i don't know what it could be.
Since you jump started the car and the car started fine, then I'd say your battery might be weak. Was your friend working on the car with the door open? probably enough to drain the battery. Check the voltage of the battery, should be 12.3V or more. If it's over 4-6 years old, time for a new one. Better yet, have your local auto parts store test it for you. The little black plug might have been for the factory radio and not used on an aftermarket one, just a thought.
the car never started when i tried jump starting it, nothing happened.
