00 Mitsubishi Eclipses factory or stock wiring harness color diagram


You need to provide more information on what you need help with . If you are putting in an after market radio, you can get a wiring harness that will just plug into your radio harness and with the instructions you can wire this yourself. Usually simple. Go to a good parts house for parts and help.

I was installing an after market Pioneer CD Player into a 1993 Suzuki Swift. I installed it with all the right wiring and everything was working fine with the stereo. Once I turned the headlights on, that...


The adapter harness for the radio is probably not wired correctly. I'll bet you also have no tail lights. You probably wired the harness so that the illumination circuit for the factory radio is wired to the wrong terminal of the new radio, thus the problem occuring when you turned on the headlamp switch. I have seen this many times when someone is trying to wire a radio adapter harness without having access to the factory wiring harness diagrams for the vehicle...the wire colors on the adapter harnesses don't allways match the wire colors of the factory harnesses. You need to know which wire is which and wire the correct wires together regardless of what color they may be. If you wired it simply by the wire colors, it most likely is not correct.
If you are lucky, it only blew the fuse for the tail/dash lamps. It is possible that you now have some serious vehicle wiring harness damage caused by the short circuit that was created.
I would disconnect the new radio and get the car fixed first. Then you need to find out which of the wires in the factory harness is for the illumination circuit and make sure that nothing is connected to it on the adapter harness. Most aftermarket radio/stereo systems do not use this circuit at all.

Need to know color schematics for radio harness wiring


If installing Toyota radios/CD Players they just plug in regluar sockets in vehicle.
If installing Non-Toyota radios/CD Players youll have to buy a wiring kit from Wal-Mart/Circuit City/etc it would have the wiring diagram in it.
