It's not too old, you can do it. You said three adapters. Is that three different ones you bought or three plugs on the car. You should be able to go to Wal-Mart and By a plug that will work.

    The cd player you have should have come with a wiring harness. If you don't have it you need to contact the manufacture of the cd player to get one. Then get a vehicle adapter from wal-mart. Hook the cd player harness to the wal-mart harness and it will work. The wal-mart harness will have instructions with it on which wire go where.

My daughter has a 98 olds 88 i removed the stock stereo and put in a pioneer cd player but i didnt see any wire on the stereo side for the elec. antenna i was wondering how i can wire it to work


Most aftermarket pioneer cd/radio decks have the electrical connector for the antenna that I've seen.

Is this a cd only deck, or does it have radio functions?

Did you use a new harness wiring adapter to get the pioneer radio to work with the old harness?
There should be a color coded set of wires for the power antenna on that. And, then the Pioneer radio should have wires that were labeled for the power antenna.

Wire harness dont know how to hook up radio cause colors dont match up


If your puting in a aftermarket stereo system, they make adapters that will plug into the factory harness and have a diagram of what to hook up to your new stereo. They should have one of these at a stereo store or even auto parts or Wal Mart. I had to put one in my 89 Caravan and 88 Prelude. I got them from the local stereo store and they were about $12 bucks or so. Depends on how much your stereo place overcharges.

Hope this works for you....

Trying to install a new stereo.


If you don't have one, buy yourself a $5.00 12volt test light, it will come in handy in situations like these, and many others. Can you not find 12volt constant in yoour old connection?

1983 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Electrical problem. I AM STUMPED


It goes thru the dash circuits. Yes! add a wire from the alternator output to the plus battery . The charge lite may be inoperative - either on or off. You might want to put a fuse in that new line.
A cheap volt-ohm-meter would help you see if the alternator is charging 14-14.8 volt and the alterantor field is being energized.
