You can always look in the trunk where your speakers are and note the colors of the wires there. There will be 4 rear and 4 front (4 solid color, 4 striped [ground]). Once you dertermine the rear, find the other 4 that match and those will be the front. You will have a constant (battery) wire, ground, and hot wire also. Varies, but in mine, I think the yellow was constant, red was hot, and black was ground. hope that helps a little....

Go to advanced auto parts and buy a connector for your car. just go and give them year, model and make and when you get it connect the same color wires from the stereo to the stereo harness. all of the colors are the same.

I just got a Insignia cd/stereo/MP3 car radio and I really need an installation manual. Lots of wires, colors, don't know what they power. Where can I get the manual? It's going in my 01 Dodge Ram


Greg,

Do yourself a HUGE favor. Drop $8 on a radio wiring harness connector. You wire it to the aftermarket radio while sitting at your kitchen table. When done, yank the factory radio and simply PLUG IN the new radio directly into the truck's wiring harness. Done! No cutting of your truck's wires, splicing, taping or hanging upside-down making connections. Plus, when it's time to sell the truck - you can pull out your radio and dump the factory radio back in the truck in no time.

Hooking up a new stereo


Go by a stereo shop and get an adapter for your car. It connects all of the correct wires to the aftermarket radio without damaging or removing wires from old connector.

After replacing my battery i have to put the code in every time i start the car for the radio is this electrial or fuse problem


ok , as you may know, your car has a security feature that disables the stereo every time the power is disconnected from it. so that is your problem. you have 2 power supplies to your stereo. one is a wire that is connected to your ignition switch, so that is like an electrical switch so to say, that powers up the unit when you start the car. the second is a slightly larger wire that supplies a constant current to the stereo, even when the cars off. this wire allows the stereo to save your sound and radio presets, and other memory when you turn the ignition off. this constant wire is most likely your problem. im not sure where this wire is spliced into your battery. it may be at athe battery, or it may be a wire leading into your under hood fusebox. check the owners manual for the fuse locations, and check to see if they are bad. then, check to make sure there werent any wires or connecters that may have been left off by accident when the stereo was disconnected. finally if that doesnt work, you can locate this wire, and replace it, if you know how to use a digital multimeter. just determine what wire is the constant, cut and splice a new wire into the stereo-end of the old constant, then run that wire to a constant power supply, like directly to the positive battery post. if you do though, just make sure that the wire will be clear from any moving or hot parts, and dont forget to install some kind of fuse near the battery. im guessing a 10 amp fuse should be sufficient. hope this helps you, or at least gives you a good starting point.

The color of the wires from my old and new radio dont match up!?


Jags are definitely a pure breed. The new radio most likely has writing on the wires that tell where they are to be connected to. I take that back. I just checked the wiring of an older model JVC unit and there or not listings. If your radios doesn't have writing just remember Orange(or yellow) is illumination, and it goes to the fuse block; red is power, going to the fuse block; the big black one is the ant.; the little one is the ground to the chassis. The others are speakers. Connect them to the colors they are closely resembling in your Jag. Connect the power and turn on your radio. You can reconnect the lines to the correct speaker by checking each speaker. hope this helps.

Remote wire for amplifier


If it is not a factory stereo, it would be the blue wire, you can also connect amp wire straight up to red which is also the ign. wire for the radio. That way the amp will turn on with key also.

If you have a factory stereo, you can go to www.installer.com and get a free complete wiring diagram
