Question about 2003 GMC Sierra

2 Answers

Installing an aftermarket stereo, spliced the wires and have everything connected including the remote wire to the factory amp wire but still no sound.

I have a 2004 GMC Sierra and i am installing an after market stereo. I couldn't find a wiring harness so i cut the wires and began splicing them. The deck turns on but when I put a cd in, the speakers dont make any sound even though i have the remote wire off the deck attached to the factory amp wire. How can i get sound?

There is no remote wire on these newer trucks....03 and up....u have to buy the harness....although i didnt....i have an 03 gmc sierra and just pulled the schematic and matched the wires. And there is no programming to do on an aftermarket stereo.....I work for GMC and we cant program aftermarket stereos......if u buy the right harness ...and its over $100 then everything should work just fine.....and this does not disarm ur alarm system either....mine still works fine....hope this helps

ALL GMC TRUCKS 03' ON HAVE YOUR ALARM SYSTEM COMPUTER PROGRAMED TO THE ORIGINAL RADIO...EVEN IF YOU REPLACE THE ORIGINAL O.E.M. GMC PRODUCT RADIO WITH A NEW O.E.M. GMC RADIO THE VEHICLE HAS TO BE TAKEN TO A DEALER TO RE-PROGRAM THE CORRECT CODE FOR THE RADIO, AND ALARM TO WORK.
A 15 MIN JOB [BY AN HONEST GMC DEALER] ABOUT $30. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE COMPUTER TO INSTALL THIS CODE AND EVEN IF YOU DID, THEY WILL NOT GIVE IT TO YOU FOR FREE.
HOPE YOU HAD A CORRECT COLOR CODED WIRE DIAGRAM WHEN INSTALLING. DOING IT W/O SPENDING THE EXTRA $ FOR HARNESS COULD BE, IF NOT SPLICED CORRECTLY, BLOW YOUR FUSES, OR HARM THE RADIO OR SPEAKERS...INSTALLING AN AFTERMARKET RADIO DISABLES YOUR ALRM SYSTEM ALSO. MOST RADIO SHOPS RUN A NEW WIRE DIRECT FROM THE BATTERY [HEAVY GAGE, W/FUSE] YOU COULD TRY THAT BEFORE YOU TAKE IT TO A DEALER...JAMES IN PG

Might be able to get an adaptor that plugs straight in painlessly.
Failing that it's the standard trace and identify method that eats time like crazy.

All connected now no sound. Where do it connect the remote wire from aftermarket stereo. I believe that may be the issue.


Remote has nothing to do with the sound u less you're running an amp & subs. Is your high end speakers working? If not do you have factory amp?

What you should start with is to reconnect the wires that were spliced for the relay first putting the vehicle back into its original state. From my experience with these systems esp in the impalas they just dont let you out of theft mode after an overide relay pull. It should start when you reconnect all the original wiring. Then start over with what you want to do

What's the Motorola box under my back seat Chevy trailblazer 02 also I'm hooking a amp to battery where do I connect the amp turn on wire I guess it be remote wire


The motorolla box may be remnants of an old disk changer for the stereo. With an amp your power wire goes into the positive wire that goes to your battery, your ground wire will be connected to some bare metal close to wherever you decide to install the amp, and the blue remote wire will be connected to the remote wire that in on the wiring harness of your aftermarket radio ( I'm sure your not installing an amp with your stock radio). Good luck I hope this helps

Installing aftermarket stereo


Sounds like one of your connections are bad. Go through them again and be sure everything is secure. Also, definately check the fader and balance settings, could just be that the fader is set to front and balance is set to left. Also, why did you punch the first one?

I have a 92 marquis, and ive just changed out the factory stereo with a aftermarket. How can i hookup the amp that came with the bose system??


If you bought a wiring adapter kit for the aftermarket stereo, the unit should hook up directly to the stock bose system. Note: If there is sound coming from the speakers after installation, the amp IS hooked up...the speaker wiring is routed to the factory amplifier, not the stereo itself, the stereo wiring is just signal leads to the amplifier. In some instances, you may have to connect the amp remote wire to the remote wire coming from the aftermarket stereo(blue wire). I hope this helps. Any other questions, just reply.

What wire can I splice into on the factory stereo of a 2004 ford explorer to power a remote on wire for a aftermarket amp?


Use a test light and tap into the acc power wire, this is the wire with power when the key is on , then when key is off the power is off this way the amp turns on and off with the key, and it wont kill your battery when ignition is off, just use test light to test wires. hope this helps, note the wire is black and pink just test to make sure.

Installing an aftermarket stereo in 1996 explorer...sound issues.


You may have a factory amplifier in the rear of the explorer in the right cargo panel. You need to supply power to it by connecting the amp power on (Blue/White I think) in the dash to a power source (such as red on your stereo harness) so it comes on with the key. If you do have the amplifier, that's why you have no sound.

You have to run wires and antenna wire to trunk from head unit pull down the flap where the amp is and unplug the factory plug from the stereo think box is what i call it its the unit in front of the amp you will need to unplug the larger of the plugs it has like 10 wires in it and then unplug the antenna wire and you will connect it to the antenna wire you you ran back to the trunk do not splice any wires if you get a wiring kit for it it should have evrything you need
