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.

The connectors for all GM oem radios for this car/year are the same. The place that sold you the new radio should be able to provide a patch cable with a connector at one end that fits the aftermarket radio, and one or more connectors at the other end that fit into the connectors in your car. If you can't get that patch cable from them, try sonicelectronix.com. These cables are usually unique to the brand of your aftermarket radio. Although it's a bit late, It's a good idea to check that these patch cables are available from the seller before buying the radio.
If you can't find a patch cable and the cable that came with the new radio has no connector(s) on one end, you will need to splice those wires to the correct wires going to the old radio connector, and for that you will need the wiring diagram for both your car and the new radio. You should be able to get the wiring schematics for your car from Alldatadiy.com, and your new radio should have come with a connector pinout description.
disconnect the negative battery cable from the Altima's battery.
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.
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.
Pry the radio trim panel loose with your fingers or a flat-head screwdriver and remove it.
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.
Slide the cage included with your new stereo into your dash adapter. Slide the stereo into the cage and dash adapter.
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.
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.
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.
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
