In many cars the factory speakers are powered by an external amplifier. If this is your case you must get power to the amplifier or run new speaker wires from the head unit to the speakers. Running new wires is easier.

Radio wiring troubles for 1992 dodge dakota le


hmm well there are 2 solutions to this that i can give cause i dont have the wiring diagram for that truck..

The first would be to set with a multimeter and test the wires under the dash for the hot, and axcessories wire.

The second would be to run 2 wires directly from the battery to the inside of the vehicle and connect the radio using that.
The second solution is self explained so lets discuss the first.

The truck came with an original radio. connected to this raid is a jack with a bunch of wires. remove the connector. with keys out the ignition test every wire until you get 12V.. thats your hot wire. this wire always has power. Now lable that wire and push it aside. turn the ignition on and test the remaining wires until you get 12v .. thats the ignition wire or acesories. this only has power with the ignition on. The remaining paired wires are for the speakers. connect the new deck and vonnect the wires one pair at a time to determine their location. or ypu can look at the wires connect directly to the speakers to see which wires go to which. .. you can use the body of the truck as a ground.

97 dakota installed radio harness have power no sound


If you still haven't fixed this, look at your wiring harness. The blue wire that comes off your factory harness is the external amp in the Infinity stereo. I found this out when I hooked my Pioneer head unit up. Coming off the aftermarket stereo should be a blue wire that says remote. Hook those up and you should be good to go.
