Hi that harness it's located in the trunk where the CD changer sits. You need to disconnect the changer if you want to use the ipod adapter.
i hope this information was helpful.

Removed CD Player as not woking then replaced on doing so wipers and lights came on. Now cant start car window wont go up and now power to radio/dash any ideas. Please


You've pulled a plug off in the wiring harness somehow. Retrace your steps carefully and check all the harness plugs are fully home.
Either that or you've trapped the harness somehow on refitting the CD. I just hope you haven't fried the wires in the harness to give you these faults.

How to install Radio in Honda Accord


Things You'll Need:

* Stereo
* Wiring harness
* Dash kit
* Phillips screwdriver
* Heat shrink
* Lighter
* Wire strippers
* Wire caps


In order to install A Radio first follow steps of Removing the Factory Radio


#1
Open the center console, and you'll see two phillips screws at the bottom. Unscrew both of them.

#2
Remove the drink tray, and unscrew three more phillips screws. The center console is now loose enough to move.

#3
Pull the center console back a few inches to expose two more screws under the plastic part of the gear shift. Remove these screws.

#4
Pull the ashtray out of the dash, and you'll see one more phillips screw. Remove this screw and pull off the plastic panel around the factory stereo.

#5
Locate the metal tray under the factory pocket (below the stereo), and pull it out of the dash. There will be two phillips screws holding it in place; remove those, and then pull the stereo out of the dash. You'll need to unplug the wiring harness that is plugged into the back of the radio.


Now Install The New Stereo

#1
Assemble the dash kit, as shown in the instructions. Put it into the dash where you just took the stereo out. There will be a rectangular opening, and a pocket underneath. The opening is where the radio will go.

#2
Secure the dash kit by screwing in the one screw in the ash tray, and the two in the opening of the panel.

#3
Insert the metal cage that came with the stereo into the opening above the pocket. Ensure that the fit is flush with the pocket. Using a screwdriver, bend the metal tabs upward, which holds the metal cage in place.

#4
Start wiring the stereo harness to the wiring harness. Match wires color by color until all of the wires are paired. For example, if you find a purple wire coming out of the aftermarket wiring harness, plug it into a purple wire from the factory harness. You aren't touching any of the wires in your dash on this step, you are simply wiring the new stereo to the wiring harness.

To connect these wires you'll want to place a piece of heat shrink over one of the wires, strip the ends, twist both ends together, and then pull the heat shrink over the exposed metal parts of the two wires. Heat the heat shrink with a lighter until it shrinks and forms a tight bond between the two wires. When done correctly, you won't be able to pull the wires apart.

#5
Plug the aftermarket harness into the factory plug, and insert the radio back into the dash. If you find wires that don't have a match, be sure to cap them so that the ends aren't exposed. Exposed wires are what cause shorts and electrical problems.

#6
Work in reverse order to put the dash back together. The radio won't be secure in the dash until the dash is put back together.

Hope this helps

Thanks

Fuse panel


there is a subharness which was installed afterwards at dealers. that harness has 2 10amp fuses. the harness is located above your right knee, but its tucked into the dash, so you cant see it. its a fairly good size subharness about 12"long. it plugs into the BCM /body control module/black box above radio. it has white and black connector going to it and that is the subharness. like I said it has 2 fuses. check those.

Does any radio work for a 1986 camry?


As in aftermarket like a Sony or Kenwood or..???? Yes.
The easiest way to install one is to get an installation kit. One that has a bracket/face that fills the hole in the dash and the new radio sits in and a wire harness. The harness makes things so simple. You don't need to know what wire color is what. The cars factory harness plugs right in and the new radio wires will be the same color on the harness.

I am tryin to remove the factory radio from a 2000 Nissan Altima and install an aftermarket radio. but i cant seem to figure out a way to get the trim panel around the radio and HVAC module out. And i can...


  • disconnect the negative battery cable from the Altima's battery.

  • 2

    Pry up the trim panel surrounding the gear stick. The trip panel is held in place by plastic clips that will disengage when the panel is pried up. Use a flat-head screwdriver to pry up the panel. The panel doesn't need to be completely removed, just pried up enough to reveal two Phillips screws along the bottom of the radio trim panel.

  • 3

    Remove the two Phillips screws along the bottom edge of the radio trim panel, just above the gear stick. Remove the two Phillips screws from above the radio. Remove the ashtray.

  • 4

    Pry the radio trim panel loose with your fingers or a flat-head screwdriver and remove it.

  • 5

    Remove the four Phillips screws holding the radio in place. Set the screws aside for use later. Slide the radio forward and disconnect the wires from the back of the device.

  • 6

    Slide the cage included with your new stereo into your dash adapter. Slide the stereo into the cage and dash adapter.

  • 7

    Connect the wires from the dash to the back of your new stereo. All stereos have slightly different connections methods, so refer to the owner's manual accompanying your new stereo for the proper connection procedure.

  • 8

    Slide the stereo and dash adapter into the dashboard. Use the previously removed Phillips screws to mount the stereo in place. Replace the radio trim panel and gear stick trim panel. Reconnect your battery.

  • If you are putting a aftermarket stero make sure you buy a stero harness that plugs into the cars harness, on the back side of the harness you just installed will have open wires to conet to your new stero. If you cut the wires from your car to try to splice it to the new raido it can cause problems with the electrical system includeing making the transmission shift or act funny. you can pick the harness at wall-mart, car auido, best buy, or any car auido place.

    I want to replace the radio in a 2002 grand am


    Easy get the radio you want, then go to wal-mart and look for a wire install plug, and a radio install bezel. The plug will plug directly into the factory harness in the dash and all you have to do is connect the color coded wires from the new radio harness to the aftermarket one. The bezel will fill in the extra space from the size difference from the factory to the new radio.

    Audio wiring problem


    Constant 12V+ Blue/Yellow
    Switched 12V+ Gray
    Ground Brown (or your own wire to a metal grounding point)
    Illumination Green
    Antenna Trigger Black/Red

    Front Speakers 4" Dash
    Left Front (+) Pink
    Left Front (-) Purple
    Right Front (+) Green
    Right Front (-) Blue

    Rear Speakers 5 1/4" Rear Deck
    Left Rear (+) Black
    Left Rear (-) Yellow
    Right Rear (+) Red
    Right Rear (-) White

    I a '83 camry, there are 2 seperate plugs that go into a factory radio.
    One for Power/and front speakers, and the other for rear speakers.

    Sounds as if you are missing part of the harness for the rear speakers (or it is shoved in the back of the dash unused by the previous install). If there is not an un-cut plug in the dash - your only course of action would be to run your own set of speaker wire to the rear.

    See this picture... these are the plugs that should go into your factory radio....

    Metra kit 71-1938 will go from your factory wiring directly into your factory radio.

    Replace factory radio on 2002 yukon xl


    all you gotta do is carfully pry the dash panel off (prying from the far left end is easiest) completely remove panel. then there are 2 clips that hold the factory sterio in place. push on the both clips while pulling the radio out. simply disconnect the wiring harness from the back of the radio. using an adapter avaliable at your local radio shop (scosche p/n gm02, mdarb and gm1483b) wiring harness, dash install kit, and antenna adapter. then simply match the colors on the new radio's harness to the adapter harness, crimping each connection with a "but plug". then simply follow the instructions included with the dash install kit to assemble the kit.connect the antenna adapter to radio, plug in all cables. test to see if everything works properly before the final install. install sterio into dash install kit, re installing kit where origional radio was. then simply put the panel back in its place by firmly pushing on it untill it snaps into place. then enjoy your new radio!
