Need to look up the color codes specific to the make and model of your vehicle as well as the color codes for the stereo being installed You can usually find those on google with enough looking around

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.

You need to buy an adaptor. You can buy them at Wal-Mart for about 10 bucks.

What's the wiring directions for radio replacement in 2004 aveo?


If you are talking about putting an aftermarket radio in, do yourself a favor and get the correct wiring harness for that car. You won't cut any factory wiring and the harness will be pretty much color coded to your aftermarket radio.

Replaced factory radio with aftermarket radio, now heat, ac, radio, controls not working (checked fuses, none blown)


was this a hack job?> cutting wires. (cutting harness wires?)
or did you use those nice install kits with the connector pig tails
that find the factory harness connector.
if you messed it up, only the FSM can save you now.
read the schematics.
see ZJ
here
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service

no electrical tape allowed (heat shrink)
no wire nuts (horror to max on cars)
no cannibal splices. (the cut in to factor wires, nasty they are)
or it can be bad.

How to connect a Hyundai car radio to my Toyota ute


This is most likely impossible if either is a late model vehicle. As far as wiring you will need to cut the factory Radio harness out of the Hyundai, you will also need a wire diagram for the Hyundai. You will need to buy a harness designed to install an aftermarket head unit into the Toyota, the new harness will come with a description of which wires perform what function. You will then need to match these to the wires on the harness cut from the Hyundai using the diagram. Even if you do all this other hyundai radio will not bolt in where the factory Toyota radio was, and there is no adapter made for something like this. I would suggest just buying an aftermarket stereo. It will be MUCH easier and will almost definitely sound better than a stock Hyundai unit.

I usually buy a wiring harness adapter off of ebay.com or BestBuy.com to get wires that are labeled to work with the aftermarket radios available for your Buick Regal.

They don't cost much and can save a lot of headaches.

You can buy aftermarket plugs that will plug in to your harness and have the radio wires on the new plug. This keeps you from cutting your harness and reinstalling your factory , if you decide to.

Installation of new cd player in 2002 VR-X Lancer


There are aftermarket wireharnesses available. I suggest the $15-25 purchase. The wires usually match color for color to the aftermarket stereo saving a major head ache if attempting to figure out the factory harness. These adaptors are available at many audo part stores and local installation shops. To check the harness you need, Metra, on of the main aftermarket wire harness manufacturers has an application chart on line, see metraonline.com or a search for American International or Scosche.
