I just changed the stereo in My 03 tj and it was pretty simple. You have to remove the upper dash panel to get at the 2 screws that hold the stereo surround in place. it just pops off with clips.Then it's just a matter of popping off the surround and undoing the 4 screws that hold the factory deck in place. I hugely recommend going to a place like Future shop or similar and getting a wiring harness adapter, mounting kit and you will need an antenna adapter. The wiring is really easy to follow and will be clearly marked on the packaging. So just match it to the appropriate wires on the stereo wiring harness and plug into the jeeps factory harness, plug in the antenna adapter and put it back tgether in the reverse order of how you took it apart. Took me about 45 minutes to do mine.

You need to remove the front face on the dashboard...either you can "feel" your way through this, or you can get a basic manual like haynes that contains instructions. Most radios have accessory packages available that consist of an adapter harness and face plate which will make the job go a bit easier.R&R instructiona are not complicated but too long to write out.
Good luck!

I have a 2010 Jeep Wrangler and a cd is stuck in the stereo. I've tried disconnecting the battery and several other things. it still plays though


it needs to be serviced.
best is to , remove it and upgrade to a media center with no CD.
CD;s are dead. everyone use flash USB sticks now,
like 4000 songs on one stick easy.

the HEAD end CD player must be dismantled to find cause.
it can be simple (done many i have) or hard, expensive and hard to get parts. inside. or just a dirty switch.

How can i replace the manufacture radio in my car and replace it with aftermarket car stereo


You best bet, because of a warranty, is to have a professional shop install your stereo. But if you are like all of us guru's here, you like to get your hands dirty.

First you need to remove the dash around your factory stereo. Be patient here and try not to break any of the dash. You may need to remove screws and pop loose plastic retainers located on the backside of the dash.

Wire the after market stereo to the harness located below by maching the colors provided. Thank the stereo companies for making this simple. Use crimp connectors or solder your connections, which ever best suits you. Tape up any remaining wires with eectrical to minimize the chance of a short.

Take the metal sleeve provided by the sereo you choose and install it into the install kit located below. Once you have removed the factory stereo, test fit the install kit and attach any tabs neccessary provided by the kit.

Now take the aftermarket stereo and place into the sleeve you installe din the install kit until it clicks into its locks. Now, the harness you wired up earlier, plug it into the factory harness and then into you stereo. Hook up the antenna, you may need to purchase a antenna adapter. Now before you install the stereo, do a test run to make sure everything is working. Once you are content that it is all working, install the new stereo and then reverse the steps in removing the dash panel and stereo.

Stereo wont work


It sounds like a wire somewhere in the wires that run to the speakers is getting a short. Something very similar happened on my mothers car. I trouble shot it and eventually found out it was the stereo that needed replacing.
You can buy a new stereo anywhere that sells them. Be cautious of used as you never really know what you are getting. Installing a new stereo is not very difficult but you have to make sure you have everything you need. You can get everything you need at your local electronics store. Just go to the mobil audio section and tell them which stereo you want and that you need the stuff to install it. All the places around where I live have free instalation with the purchase of a new stereo. Most after market stereos will require a dash kit to fill in the space left over from the size difference between the factory stereo and the after market stereo.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.
