You need to check wiring an connectors at the transfer case shift control module an check power an grounds at the module ! If all seams good there a scan tool will need to be hooked up to check for codes ! If none of this makes no sense or you don't under stand any of this you need to take it to someone who does !

Generally you any after market radio can be installed into any car. You might have to cut the original wiring connector but basically all you need to hook up a basic radio/cd player is a positive and a ground wire. That's what powers the radio/cd player. Next all you need to do is hook up the speaker wires the unit. One other option is to check out ebay for a used radio/cd player. You will do better getting a radio that does not have an anti-theft feature. If it has an anti-theft feature you will have to enter a code to make it work.
Your best bet on that one is to go to a place that sells car audio systems or even some autoparts retailers have them,and get the proper adapter harness already made up. A few more dollars but, a whole lot less headaches.
This is going to be a loose ground. Since the problem occured after a heater core replacement I would check the ones there. Pull the kick panels off of both sides and make sure the grounds are hooked up and tight. They will have bolt thru connectors on the end of the wires.Also look at the center brace area under the dash sometimes they have them there too.
The yellow wire does not get used unless you have a power antenna to hook it to. The red wire is suppose to be hooked to the wire that was used as power for the stock stereo, so it turns on and off with the key. If you have it hooked to constant power, it has power coming to it even when it's turned off. That and the fact that you may need a better ground is most likely the reason you're getting the moise even when turned off. You may also want to check your speaker connections.
