This is pretty easy on the MX5 - just a matter of removing the existing unit and replacing it with one you want. It might pay to take a bit of a note about which cables were which before you do it - otherwise it might be a bit of trial and error!

One of the easier jobs to do - make sure you check you've got the required connectors - if you need new ones, auto or electrical stores stock them - you'll probably need to get a crimping/wire stripping tool as well.

Hope this helps,
Sherwin

2000 Buick Century. Put in a replacement radio/cd/casset player. Radio works, clock works, but CD and casset do not. The message comes up E 13. What does this e code mean?


if its a radio shack radio, it means E13 means "Tape Communication Error". It is caused by the
microprocessor reading speed pulses from the tape deck either too fast, most other makes mean about the same thing, normally a stuck tape will cause this code to show up, either that or the drive gear that loads and unloads the tape is broken, cracked, or jammed

Wanting to install a cd player in a 1977 mercury grand marquis, wondering y an old tape deck will work but a modern day cd player will not. Is there a wiring harness that i can use to install a cd player?


Hi,

NO problem here, the supplier of the CD player will have an interface(wiring plugs adaptor) that will convert the original wiring to suit the (new) replacement unit. A good Auto Elec will also solve any problems but the interface wiring will illiminate all this. Good Luck

Cannot play ipod on 2000 malibu using tape adapter. malibu has cd player and remote tape deck


Instead use a radio adaptor where you would set you radio to a particular channel. The adaptor emits a signal correspondent to that radio signal and allows you to listen to your iPod.

1998 Corolla Radio problem/replacement


ok... the 98 corolla (that i know of) only comes equipped with the tape deck and radio, you probably have a after market radio, these are easy to replace, you can buy any standard cd player to replace yours, even if the wiring harnesses dont match up right, i offer a diagram for the colors and labels on my tips, its fairly easy to do, check it out and good luck!
