Question about 1995 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

New Car Radio, New Harness but no power, Nissan P/U '95

Old radio acting up. Bought a car harness for my new radio. Installed both according to instructions. Now, I got no power on radio. Reconnect the old one, and still no power. Very frustrating. Should I check the car wiring now. That seem to be above my paygrade.

Nissan Pick Up Truck, 95
New radio: Dual
Harness bought from walmart.

Any help is appreciated. -Michael

Trying to install a radio in my 97 nissan kingcab xe pickup but i cant find a diagram for the stock radio wiring harness anywhere, help me?


if the stock pigtail is cut, that sucks! you can always get an adapter harness, even from walmart! plug and play. just splice the new harness into the new radio harness. easy as all connections are color coded. if you talk to a service writer at nissan, you may be able to get a diagram from them.

I am tryin to remove the factory radio from a 2000 Nissan Altima and install an aftermarket radio. but i cant seem to figure out a way to get the trim panel around the radio and HVAC module out. And i can...


  • disconnect the negative battery cable from the Altima's battery.

  • 2

    Pry up the trim panel surrounding the gear stick. The trip panel is held in place by plastic clips that will disengage when the panel is pried up. Use a flat-head screwdriver to pry up the panel. The panel doesn't need to be completely removed, just pried up enough to reveal two Phillips screws along the bottom of the radio trim panel.

  • 3

    Remove the two Phillips screws along the bottom edge of the radio trim panel, just above the gear stick. Remove the two Phillips screws from above the radio. Remove the ashtray.

  • 4

    Pry the radio trim panel loose with your fingers or a flat-head screwdriver and remove it.

  • 5

    Remove the four Phillips screws holding the radio in place. Set the screws aside for use later. Slide the radio forward and disconnect the wires from the back of the device.

  • 6

    Slide the cage included with your new stereo into your dash adapter. Slide the stereo into the cage and dash adapter.

  • 7

    Connect the wires from the dash to the back of your new stereo. All stereos have slightly different connections methods, so refer to the owner's manual accompanying your new stereo for the proper connection procedure.

  • 8

    Slide the stereo and dash adapter into the dashboard. Use the previously removed Phillips screws to mount the stereo in place. Replace the radio trim panel and gear stick trim panel. Reconnect your battery.

  • If you are putting a aftermarket stero make sure you buy a stero harness that plugs into the cars harness, on the back side of the harness you just installed will have open wires to conet to your new stero. If you cut the wires from your car to try to splice it to the new raido it can cause problems with the electrical system includeing making the transmission shift or act funny. you can pick the harness at wall-mart, car auido, best buy, or any car auido place.

    I have an 2002 nissan centra I got a new stereo deck so I went and bought a wiring harness to install it, I matched all my wires by colour accordingly but I get no power at all!!.. There is one wire left...


    Check all the fuses to see if they have power. I think the fuse your looking for is in the box under the hood by the battery. I recently had the same problem and had to tap into the big blue wire by the in the car fuse box to get the constant hot to the radio.

    A lot of new cars, and most likely yours with antitheft system, will not allow you to just install a new radio into car. You might need to get a harness to connect the new radio to the car. Search on ebay for one.

    Can not find where to plug CD player to the harness


    does the radio have cd changer controlls? if so you may find the wires in the trunk if not you will have to buy a harness from ford and make sure the cd changer will work with the stock radio. Call the local ford dealer parts dep but make sure you have the vin number from the car with that they can look up the car and tell you what options where installed from the factory and can order the correct cable

    My factory radio went out in my car...so i had a new one put it in. After the guy installed the radio we noticed that my park lights and dash lights werent working. We checked the fuses and they were all...


    I really hope that this guy bought a wiring kit to put in the aftermarket radio, because this could be simple. Your stock radio runs the dash and parking lights threw it's display and that needs to be looped with the new radio. On the aftermarket, there is a orange wire that does this. Since the stock wiring is different with every make and model of auto out there, you need to buy the wiring kit that plugs into the car's harness and matches in color to the harness of the new radio. Putting together the orange wires will give you back your lights. If this person cut the orginal plugs off of the car and wired it direct to the car, you may want to see if the plugs can be put back on and the wiring kit installed or you going to be going through a nightmare of figuring out what wire is what on the car side. Those wiring kits that plug into the car and wire up to the radio are cheap and can be bought at Wal Mart for about 20 to 25 dollars. Good luck
