It's actually not too hard when you figure everything out. I just installed an aftermarket stereo and couldn't get any sound until I stumbled across a solution on this site. First you need to get the correct wire harness which I bought on ebay for $1.99. Then you need to get the install kit. I got mine at Radio Shack for $10.00 cause they're going out of business. You can get it at Best Buy too or any other car stereo place. To get the old stereo out. Take out the cup holder. There is a button on the top rear of it that releases it. Then remove the 2 screws at the bottom. Gently pull the entire trim that surrounds the stereo, cd changer and ac controls. You will now have access to removing the stereo. It's very easy after that. After you connect the wire harness and install the new stereo you need to run a wire from the red ACC wire on the stereo to the NBS relay in the fuse box under the hood. That's it! Good luck. Sorry I have no pictures.

    I must retract part of my answer as connecting the wire from the red acc to the 87 pin didn't work.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

2005 chrysler town and country how to attach aftermarket dvd player to factory screen?


The best reply for this is to see a radio teck that fits wireless into cars as they have the gear , looms and connections and the know how to do the job without upsetting the ECM program. IT will be money well spent especially if you use an accredited radio technician.

I have a 2005 malibu and want to replace my radio but keep my mileage and information screen, how can I do this.


assuming info screen is in the factory radio
couple ways of doing this
first and easiest is leave factory radio in place
and find a location for new radio (in glove box, under dash, (under seat if have remote) then just remove speaker wires from factory radio and install on aftermarket radio then run power and ground to aftermarket radio

option two
relocate factory radio to trunk or under seat (problem with this method is u have to look in trunk or under seat to read gas millage or info )
u will need to lengthen the data wires and run them to the new location of factory radio

2001 Chrylser Town and Country Van- where are the fuses


There are two in the Power distribution center (Intelligent Power Module) near the left fender shield under the hood. Has Relays and fuses in it. It also should have a decal attached identifing the fuses and relays. Fuse #5 is the 20amp Ign on power and fuse #14 is the batt/constant power. This module is one of the On-Board computers so they call it "Intelligent". Bare in mind this is for the factory stereo, IF an aftermarket stereo has been installed there will probably be one in the harness at the back of the stereo. Let me know if this helps.

Does the 1998 TOWN AND COUNTRY have a factory amp


good morning and welcome to fixya
Yes there is a pre-amp that powers your system, it is actually bolted onto the back of the deck ( radio) . If you pull the radio out of the dash and look on the rear of it there will be a shiny silver block with heat sinks in it that is the amp. you can remove and re-install and new one if you need. Just make sure that you re-apply die electric silicone between the mounting surfaces. If you remove the amp from the back then the radio will probably not function at all. They are hard wired into radio itself. You must solder the new terminals back into the board if you change the amp. hope this helps, let me know if you need any other assistence. thank you for using fixya and dont forget to rate



please rate this solution??

1999 Town and Country Factory Amp problem!!!


Are you trying to connect an aftermarket radio? This may be the whole problem as they are a pain to install without knowledge of the wiring. Did you get the kit to hook your stereo up to the existing plugs on the car? This is usually the best way to go. If you did, recheck your wiring.
