Question about 1994 GMC Jimmy

Car stereo wiring

I'm trying to put an after-market head unit into a 94 GMC Jimmy. The previous owner cut the car's original wiring harness plug off, so I can't buy a wiring harness that i can plug into it and match up to the car stereo. Can anyone tell me what color wires go to what? This is driving me nuts.

If your original harness is still hanging out of the dashboard I would just opt for the $15 aftermarket cord. Then it's just pretty much color code wires together

I have a 95 gmc sierra 2500 and im trying to put in my aftermarket rafio so i cut the stock harness out the square puece that goes in back of stock radio and now i cant figure out what wire is what i got...


I would suggest you spice the wires back to stock harness by male and female connections and tape over them with black tape then get a stereo install kit that includes a wiring harness ( cost about $20 maybe or less) for the year of truck you have... it will plug right to your stock harness ...never just cut stock stereo wires from stock plug it will be more of a headache than you think trust me I've installed all my own stereo system been there done that... good luck

How do I wire after market stereo to 94 ford probe


check the radio stores as you may be able to get a radio harness to connect the aftermarket radio to the factory wiring harness so you won`t have to cut and splice, its just a plug and go.

Iam try to wire a aftermarket stereo on a 1987 gmc jimmy using stock plug ins but every time i put on brakes stereo goes off Ive checked all wires to make sure none are bare also made sure nothing...


Could be a ground problem. You take the ground out of the harness and run it to the body or run a ground from the radio back to the body or both.

I have an 02 ford explorer, the previous owner had a custom sound system installed. He took allof trhe custom speakers and amps out but left the stereo in,but it does'nt play. the stereo work ands powers...


sounds the like the vehicle had an oem amplifier that was removed, most after market stereo installers will trace the speakers wires individually by continuity to by pass the factory amplifier and wire the new head unit to the vehicles speakers, if the harness has been spliced or factory amp removed, you will need to check if the amplifier still exists (usually under passenger rear seat sometimes located in trunk area) and see if the harness has been bypassed. if so you will have to reconnect the harness by color code in order to use the factory head unit

Installing an aftermarket stereo, spliced the wires and have everything connected including the remote wire to the factory amp wire but still no sound.


There is no remote wire on these newer trucks....03 and up....u have to buy the harness....although i didnt....i have an 03 gmc sierra and just pulled the schematic and matched the wires. And there is no programming to do on an aftermarket stereo.....I work for GMC and we cant program aftermarket stereos......if u buy the right harness ...and its over $100 then everything should work just fine.....and this does not disarm ur alarm system either....mine still works fine....hope this helps
