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.
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.
Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.
This is common with Porsche, VW and Audi. The radio IS part of the anti theft system and part of its ground circuitry. The best thing to do is to replace the radio with the stock unit OR, find someone with Porsche experience to which they will be able to wire it accordingly to match the factory wiring. Not everyone can do this. Is it equipped with an aftermarket alarm system too? If so, have it removed.
Either way it goes if you have the system installed into your car there should be no problems with the rest of the car. I know that some dealerships try to scare you in putting in a custom stereo system by sayingthat it could mess up your car. It can only mess up your car if you do not know what you are doing.
DON'T REMOVE FACTRORY CONNECTORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Spend $15 and buy a wiring kit. It plugs right into your vechile wires and the kit tells you what wires are what. Splicing the wires will lead to headaces down the road!!!
