Can I wire my new radio to the factory radio harness if I cut it

You would need the wiring schematics to both radios to ensure you are wiring the right leads from one radio to the other...or else you could end up damaging the receiver and/or the amp.

I'm looking for a factory wiring diagram for my 1999 vw passat.

Hi Chad,

If you cut the car's radio connectors off the wiring harness, you'll void the warranty of the car (or worse). Trying to splice or "tap" the wires will get confusing even if you don't connect the blue wire with the white stripe to the white wire with the blue stripe.

Do yourself a huge favor and purchase a wiring harness adapter for your 199 Passat instead. Crutchfield sells one for your car for $10. Likewise, most electronics stores that deal witrh mobile installs have them too - check out Best Buy, Circuit City, Fry's and even your local independent radio shops.

You wire the new radio's harness to the harness adapter for the car in the comfort of your home (the light is better and you don't have to contort yourself to do the work). When complete, bring it out to the car and plug one end into the car, and the other into the radio. Insert the antenna plug and you're done wiring!

If you want a wiring diagram, those usually aren't available online for free. You need to spend a few dollars for a Chilton's Auto Repair Manual or similar at an autoparts store. You may find registering at a site for Passat Enthusiasts will be beneficial.. all the folks there have Passats and discuss everything from tire sizes and rims to transmission rebuilding. One such site is the "Forum" section of Passat World.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Car audio wiring diagram for 1998 volvo s-70

CLICK HERE for your vehicles full service manual. If you are cutting wires.
Be warned your vehicle has a factory amplifier installed, and needs to be bypassed to hear the speakers if you are just wiring behind the dash.
Metra makes a harness you install on the aftermarket radio, then simply plug into the vehicle's harness.
All the wires are labeled for easy installation.

70-9220 is the metra part number. Click on the number to see an eBay auction.

I a '83 camry, there are 2 seperate plugs that go into a factory radio.
One for Power/and front speakers, and the other for rear speakers.

Sounds as if you are missing part of the harness for the rear speakers (or it is shoved in the back of the dash unused by the previous install). If there is not an un-cut plug in the dash - your only course of action would be to run your own set of speaker wire to the rear.

See this picture... these are the plugs that should go into your factory radio....

Metra kit 71-1938 will go from your factory wiring directly into your factory radio.

Need To Wire In A Aftermarket Radio In A 2008 F-150

Easiest way is to go to web site, When you order a radio face plate or factory wireharness they give you a free installation kit which shows the color codes of each wire for the radio. Also, when you get the wireharness you don't have to cut any factory wires, it just plugs into your factory harness and you connect the open ends to your new radio.
