Are you sure the radio itself is in good working order,dont want to seem patronising but should always start with the new part (what ever it is ) as a process of elimination

I want to put a pioneer car deck into my truck but I do not know the wiring in it

Hi,normaly you need a live wire and a earth wire,so if you find a live wire you need to put a fuse holder between the live wire that you have picked and the radio,then the rest is just to sort out your speakers.
hope this was some help.

Sounds like you need a new ignition switch. It is either attached to the key cylinder or down towards the bottom of the column, under the dash. It may just be loose, or needs adjusting.

1988 bmw 325si manufacture radio is missing but wiring cluster is intact apparently. Do i have to have a stock radio replacement or can i install a cd player deck without causing problems???

Generally you any after market radio can be installed into any car. You might have to cut the original wiring connector but basically all you need to hook up a basic radio/cd player is a positive and a ground wire. That's what powers the radio/cd player. Next all you need to do is hook up the speaker wires the unit. One other option is to check out ebay for a used radio/cd player. You will do better getting a radio that does not have an anti-theft feature. If it has an anti-theft feature you will have to enter a code to make it work.

I want to change my original cd player for a pioneer

This is because you need to purchase the aftermarket-oem harness plug.This harness plugs into your original equipment radio harness and allows you to plug any aftermarket radio into the stock deck wires.After you plug the harness in you can then connect the radio wires together.Your local autoparts store or circuit city or best buy or audio express will have these radio conversion plugs.I hope I could help
