Radio will not go off


Hi Steve, I'm glad to help! I'm assuming you installed the CD Player and now it stays on. Most CD Players have 2 power wires, sometimes only 1. If your only has one then you have your power wire connected to a wire on the vehicle that stays hot with the key in the off position. Here's what you do to find the wire you need. Take a test light and place it on a fuse in the fuse block, then turn the key off and if the test light turns off thats where you want to connect the power wire for the CD Player. Then when you turn the key off the CD Player will go off also. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Steve.

Generally, the way I put an aftermarket cd-player in, is to use a new 'harness adapter' that connects to the old harness and has all of the wires color coded and labeled for easy installation of a new radio using wire nuts. I wouldn't try to cut into the existing harness, without knowing what was what.

What's the 'little plug thing' off of the grey wire?

How hard would it be to put a different cd player in my 2003 Monte Carlo SS ??


It is very simple actually. What you will need is a face plate, an aftermarket wire harness and the skills to connect this wire harness to the new CD player harness, they are usually color coded so very simple. TO remove you stock CD player you will need to pry off the plastic surround then there are 4, 7mm bolts that will need to be taken out and the stock CD player will pull out. Unclip the wire harness and antenna

do you have a test light?your speaker wires should be four sets of matching color,dark/light blue,dark/light green,dark/light purple and one other matching set of colors. then there should be one black wire which should be ground.with a test light you can find your power and accesory wires. your power wire will always have power with key on or off,the acc wire will only have power when key on. i hope this will help.
