With the ignition in the "off" position get a test light and touch one wire at a time while cycling the ignition switch to the "on" position, When you see that the test light goes off when the ignition switch is in the off position then you found the hot wire, make sure you dont hook it up to the "alway hot " wire or you might drain the battery hope this helps.

Trying to wire in a after market pioneer stereo into my 1995 f150 4wd have looked at color code schematics but from the speaker plug harness colors do not match have started pulling left door panel


They sell a installation kit so you dont have to cut any wires. You unplug the factory unit install the proper plug into the new unit and factory harness and your done.

I have a 2003 chevy silverado 1500, im trying to install an aftermarket radio. the problem im haveing is the factory wireing harness only has 11 colored wires. and no description. im how can i tell what...


DONT CUT ANY. Get an adapter from car toys or amazon etc. IF you do cut it, make sure you leave room to put it back on. The Chevrolet uses the radio for onstar and body information and you are in trouble if you make a mistake

I need a wiring diagram for a 1989 chevy silverado 1500 2 door (for replacing the stereo)


When I replace a stereo, I buy the harness which is available on Ebay.com or places like Best Buy. All of the wires are labeled and color coded which makes it easier to connect with the wire nuts to any aftermarket stereo that fits in your dash.

Im putting n a stereo but i dont no the color code


The stereo side of the wires should be labeled. Check out the12volt.com for a wiring schematic for the truck side. I advise against cutting and splicing wires for a stereo installation though. They make inexpensive harness adapters that will allow you to splice into the stereo harness without cutting into the factory wiring.
