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.

Install a jvc radio without a wiring harness adapter


You have a red wire for constant power. That goes to the battery. You have a yellow wire that goes to power that comes on when you turn on the car. Connect that wire to a fuse in your fuse box that comes on when u turn on the car. Usually a radio fuse. Connect your black wire to the solid black wire, that is the ground. Then the speaker wires. There will be 4 sets of wires. 2 wires to a set. Each set of wires will be the same color. One will be solid color, the other will have a stripe. The striped wire is you negative speaker wire. The solid is positive. Just hook them up to the speaker wires you have coming from the stereo and see which are front, rear, left and right.

How to connect aftermarket radio into 2002 toyota camry JBL radio (the standart wiring doesn't work).Thanks


Your aftermarket radio should have color-coded wires which identifies power, ground, speakers, etc. most depaetment stores carry a radio harness adapter kit. This will connect to your radio's exact color coded wires, and will plug right in to your factory's wiring plug. And don't forget electrical tape.

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

Audio wiring problem


Constant 12V+ Blue/Yellow
Switched 12V+ Gray
Ground Brown (or your own wire to a metal grounding point)
Illumination Green
Antenna Trigger Black/Red

Front Speakers 4" Dash
Left Front (+) Pink
Left Front (-) Purple
Right Front (+) Green
Right Front (-) Blue

Rear Speakers 5 1/4" Rear Deck
Left Rear (+) Black
Left Rear (-) Yellow
Right Rear (+) Red
Right Rear (-) White

I a '83 camry, there are 2 seperate plugs that go into a factory radio.
One for Power/and front speakers, and the other for rear speakers.

Sounds as if you are missing part of the harness for the rear speakers (or it is shoved in the back of the dash unused by the previous install). If there is not an un-cut plug in the dash - your only course of action would be to run your own set of speaker wire to the rear.

See this picture... these are the plugs that should go into your factory radio....

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.

I need to know what colors mean what, so i can hook my cd player up


Red - Power
Yellow - primary power must be joined to the red
blue - Remote
Black - ground or negative
To find your speaker wires check the color of the cord behind each speaker than match it with the same color in the dash.
or the easy way is to use a normal 1.5v penlight battery and try each speaker cord behind the dash and listen to which speaker give off a crackling noise so you can get the balance on the cd player right.
If u trying to find power in the car and don't have a tester than get a 12v light or bulb join the negative to the body and push the positive wire into each one of the holes in the factory plug in the dash one at a time until the light comes on. That is your positive the rest is easy. (DIY guru)

you can get something called a wiring harness from Walmart (or any place that sells car audio equipment). you plug it into the factory connection that would normally go to the back of the radio, and it has the wires labeled and color coded with what goes where. most times all you would need to do is match up the colors from the harness to the new radio you're trying to install. it makes it really easy to install after market radios, which im assuming you're trying to do.

How do I connect a line output converter to my factory head unit


depending on the type of line out converter that you have you simply just take the speaker wires coming from the head unit (you must know the color codes for the wires or you can do the process of elimination by pulling off the door panels and and viewing the colors and matching them at the wire harness behind the head unit). Pull out electric fuse for radio so you dont blow it while hooking up the wires. After you have done that just connect the speaker wires coming out of the head unit to the line out converter this will pre-amp your signal. After you have done that step on the other side of the loc you will have to connect and run rca audio cables to the back of your car to hook into your amplifier. The last step is to splice the power and ground wire coming from the wire harness and connect the radio power wire and loc power wire to the main power wire and then connect the radio ground wire and the loc ground wire to the main ground wire. Test and your done with the loc.
