Hi and welcome to JustAnswer, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.
Initially, re-confirm and post back with the complete model numbers of the " for bike..."

Still, let's try check and review the basics. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done):

  • • check for the presence of always available BAT+12V on the CD player's and Sony stereo's yellow wire (depending on the model);
  • • and switched / ACC+12V on the red wire;
  • • ensure that the black wire and body of the CD player and Sony stereo are tied to a good body ground and not only through the harness' ground line.
