How do I install an aftermarket radio in my 2000 alero

I have the basic harness for the wiring but it appears I have to install it to the car's fuse box and also the manual suggests that I connect a yellow wire to the car's battery? I have never installed a radio like this. I have the Kenwood-108 model btw. Thanks!!

SOURCE: 1999 Oldsmobile Alero lighter fuse location

there's one under the hood and one right next to the left of where your left foot would be in the driver seat as for the diagram i would suggest going to an auto store and asking for a print out they'll give you a free one if you buy the part from them. the lighter should be in the fuse box under the hood

no problems for this mechanicaly but first to do this you will need a letter from the manufacturer stating that this is permitted and the manufacturer has a certificate of homoglonation for this vehicle thats fitted with this size engine,So providing that you can obtain this then you can have it fitted,next step is to consult an authorised motor vehicle technician who is a paid up member of the appropiate technical college to draw up the relevant papers for the technical specifications for the vehicle showing the new details.Next step is to take both vehicles to an authorised dealer to do the work,as only a garage with the right paperwork is permitted to do the work.they must be registered for value added taxes and hold a certificate of motor trade members federation.Finally when its all finished the vehicle must be be presented to the goverment run vehicle inspection station for a complete test.When it passes the vehicle roadworthyness test ,the vehicles registration document and technical specifications have to be altered in the traffic office which requires that you have paid 4% of the value of the vehicle to the goverment ,and the traffic office fee.The 4% tax can only be paid over the internet and only a registered accountant can gain access to the tax office with a digital signature so its 4% plus the accountants fee for doing this for you.Moral of story ??? if you live in spain buy another car .

SOURCE: Dash lights off in 2000 Alero

Loose wires are the hardest things to fix as even the best most experience mechanics don't like doingf them unless theirs a nice fat payment involved then its yah man I'll tak this time and materil fix till you find open check book job !!! No something like the bulb thats in the shifter ( console ) Door switches remote mirror or power window or lock switch If they don't work maybe their brocken wire is touching gronfd sometimes. If the lights in the door or shifer dontwork the door hinge area is suspect as the wires flex as the door is opened and closed the wire is the same color as it goes to all of these lights rember too that theres a wire in the radio too and if the car has an after market radio in it its the first place to cheack as the installers cause this problem way more often than the car wearing out does. remove and unplugg the radio if after market and root around in there to see if any one laid out hte wire bare and nort hooked up or taped. Many after market radios light as their turned on and dont use this wire but the factory radio does. Another car questioner didn't tell everything thats wrong to save for another question When I found out later the other things they had worked on and still were having troble with I could then figger out the real problem as I've seen so many and heard about em all. All problems effect other things therefore all problems or repairs halfway done or done too cheaply come into the picture Like your problem you might come back and say the power antenna has been broken Will it make the dash lights ficcker Yes. the tail light or front parking light or marker lite is busted bad gone or hanging under the car or just plain gone will thesthtings make the dash lights filcker? Yes

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


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.

After Market Radio Installation


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.

I totaled my 01 Nissan Sentra, I was able to take out my aftermarket stereo with the wireing harness already attached - I had te deck professionally installed because I did not trust myself to connect all...


I can't answer your question, but i can give you a suggestion. What I did, was go to eBay and buy a radio wiring harness for the vehicle I was going too install the radio into (I think this one is for you vehicle eBay auction # 330605601746, I have nothing to do with said auction. You can also try Amazon.com, but eBay for me was cheaper) You hook the radio up to the harness and just plug it into the car's radio plug. Since the car currently has an aftermarket radio installed, they may have cut the cars plug off and installed it directly. You would have to pull the radio out to check first.

Should i have any spare wires when hooking up an after market car stereo


Yes, It's a very good possibility that you will have a few wires left over. Normally a wire for an aftermarket amp to be triggered on when you turn your radio on and possibly a power antenna or a dimming function that dims your radio lights when your headlights are on. It of course always depends on if you have a power antenna or not, or if you have an aftermarket amp or not or if you have the dimming feature on your car or not. These wires don't apply to everyone.
You will just match the colors between the wiring harness that came with the DUAL radio and the interface adapter that goes to your car. Make sure you use **** style crimp connectors. If not the wires could come loose or cause a popping noise or cause the radio to turn off while driving.
Other than that, installing an aftermarket radio is mostly matching the colors up between the two harnesses and crimping the wires together.3_6_2012_2_31_36_am.jpg

How to connect aftermarket radio into 2002 toyota camry JBL radio (the standart wiring doesn't work).Thanks


Your aftermarket radio should have color-coded wires which identifies power, ground, speakers, etc. most depaetment stores carry a radio harness adapter kit. This will connect to your radio's exact color coded wires, and will plug right in to your factory's wiring plug. And don't forget electrical tape.

Changed Radio and now car won't start


What stereo did you use as a replacement? If you used a aftermarket (kenwood, sony, etc) cd player, you need to use the proper adapter harness. These cars have a build in theft deterrent system that involves the stereo. So, when you replace the stereo, a component of your anti theft system is missing. The use of the harness gets around this feature somehow, and allows you to use aftermarket CD players. Also, ensure that no wires are getting pinched behind the stereo, and that all your connections are soldered and shrink wrapped to avoid any future problems. I have provided a link for the correct adapter harness to your vehicle.

Im hooking up a pioneer radio in a 1999 alero


anytime you are installing aftermarket stereo in car you should purchase wiring harness converter which comes with schematic, but if you insist on doing it old school youll need a repair manual to show color codes on wiring or a 12 light meter but lucky for you I looked up the wiring codes online heres link:
