Sounds like you have a short, check fuses. Did you buy a fitting adapter for the new radio to the factory wiring harness? It's the easiest way. If your hard wired the new radio in, check the wiring.

SOURCE: original radio wiring harness

Google Volvo wiring diagram. They are available free. The diagram shows the wire location and colors. Otherwise, run a continuity test with a simple meter to discover a connection with some resistance between a pair of wires. If you here a click or two, from the speakers, you have found the right pair. Continue and label the pairs left, right, front,rear, until all are identified. Then reconnect. A pain but not rocket science.

Does any radio work for a 1986 camry?


As in aftermarket like a Sony or Kenwood or..???? Yes.
The easiest way to install one is to get an installation kit. One that has a bracket/face that fills the hole in the dash and the new radio sits in and a wire harness. The harness makes things so simple. You don't need to know what wire color is what. The cars factory harness plugs right in and the new radio wires will be the same color on the harness.

My 2005 chev tahoe cd player won't play cd's and won't eject them. The cd light keeps flashing. I don't think there is on stuck. There wasn't any signs of trouble before this...


I have run into this problem many times on your particular type of radio. I have worked in a gm dealership for years. Sometimes we can reprogram them and they work better, but all will eventually need replaced. The cheaper option is to have an aftermarket radio installed, for the price of a new factory radio, you could have a much nicer aftermarket unit.

I have a 2005 malibu and want to replace my radio but keep my mileage and information screen, how can I do this.


assuming info screen is in the factory radio
couple ways of doing this
first and easiest is leave factory radio in place
and find a location for new radio (in glove box, under dash, (under seat if have remote) then just remove speaker wires from factory radio and install on aftermarket radio then run power and ground to aftermarket radio

option two
relocate factory radio to trunk or under seat (problem with this method is u have to look in trunk or under seat to read gas millage or info )
u will need to lengthen the data wires and run them to the new location of factory radio

Replacing factory radio


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} This is slightly tricky. Start by removing the trim around the shifter, its friction fitted so it will pop off with gentle force. Then you can remove the larger piece of trim that surrounds the shifter and extends up to the cup holders, I found that prying from the cup holder end seems to work best. Now you will be able to remove the trim that runs down the side of the center consol and includes the cup holders and power plug, you undo the 2 screws near the shifters then pry it off down the sides and pulls clear from the dash. Only then can you undo the bolts that hold down the bottom of the radio frame. From there it becomes alot easier. Push on the frame where you just pulled the bolts out of while prying gently at the radio consol. The whole thing will come out the factory unit comes out easily then you can put your dash adapter (schoche makes a decent kit) and aftermarket unit in.

Check your fuse there could be a wire for the lights on the factory radio touching the aftermarket radio.
