Note:
using an optional snap on wire harness adapter will simplify the wiring. Most snap on
wire harness adapters have already converted and color coded the wires from the auto
makers in dash wire harness to match typical aftermarket radio wire colors.
** The wire colors listed in the chart above are typical for these vehicles during these years
but may not be the exact colors for this vehicle. This is another reason to use a snap on
wire harness adapter. **

After Market Radio Installation


Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

Im putting in a radio into my 1990 fifth avenue and i cant find a wiring diagram that is correct. i also was wondering if the stock speakers have a amp or something attached?


you can find an adapter that installs between the factory harness on the car and the type of radio you are installing,so you don`t have to cut and splice,you just have to unhook the original radio and install the harness to the original harness and connect the other end to the radio your installing and your done.you can find these at most radio and accessory stores.

Putting a new radio in my car, need to know what color wire what.


Here is a website you can go to find which wires are which. http://www.modifiedlife.com I would also suggest going to places like Car Toys and get a wiring harness to make your installation pain free. If you have the original factory harness for the old stereo still on, all that you would have to do is connect the harness to your new radio and plug it in to the factory harness. No cutting wires necessary.

Sounds like your Gr Caravan has the premium sound package. You likely haven't hurt anything - but you may need to modify the wiring a bit. The speakers have a tweeter speaker in the center of the main speaker and the wiring goes through that. However, it only worked with the premium package. Go in to the speakers and move the wiring connections from the tweeter to the main speaker. Your other option is to replace the speakers.

Power supply to in-door speakers 1996 grand caravan


I had this same problem. After reading other ideas and some trial and error, I finally got it. Most Caravans have an Infinity system (the speaker grill will say Infinity on it) ,which uses an amplifier to run the door and rear speakers. I had to ground the clip wire that was originally attatched to the strap ground on the factory installed radio. Then I also had to hook the wire on the new radio for power antenae (blue and white on my unit) to a blue wire on my new harness. This wire came from the last wire of 7 wire harness that had the other 6 wires for speakers. The original wire appeared to be green/red on my vehicle. After I connected both, the speakers cameon and sound great again

Original radio wiring harness


Google Volvo wiring diagram. They are available free. The diagram shows the wire location and colors. Otherwise, run a continuity test with a simple meter to discover a connection with some resistance between a pair of wires. If you here a click or two, from the speakers, you have found the right pair. Continue and label the pairs left, right, front,rear, until all are identified. Then reconnect. A pain but not rocket science.
