On my newly installed car Radio the reception fades in and out while driving. New harness and new antenna adapter and regrounded unit. Any possible solutions.


One way or another, you have a poor connection from the radio to the antenna. Check the following and make sure all cables are clean and completely and properly inserted:
- a poor antenna cable connection to the adapter or from the adapter to the radio
- a faulty adapter
- a damaged antenna cable connector (wire in center pin)
- a damaged socket on the radio

Good Morning! I will send the steps needed to install wiring but I need to know what do you have in the way of the harness. Do you have the complete harness or only the portion between amplifier, touch screen, and sound system? Are the 2006 fuse boxes included with the firewall connector?

Abs light went on afte i replaced the leafsprings and now my tail lights and blinkers dont work if i tap the breaks or have my front head lights on


There is a harness connector along the driver's side frame rail going to the back of the truck. Check that this is plugged in, and check the harness either side of the connector for damage.

2000 Accord Aftermarket Radio Issues


A lot of new cars, and most likely yours with antitheft system, will not allow you to just install a new radio into car. You might need to get a harness to connect the new radio to the car. Search on ebay for one.

How do I remove the factory installed radio from 2006 Honda Pilot LX


I'm doing this from memory since it's been about four months since I actually did this.
This is for a 2005 LX. EX procedure may be slightly different.

Disconnect the negative battery cable and make sure it can't come back into contact with the negative battery terminal.

1) Remove the plastic tab (where a push button probably is for EX model) to the upper right of the radio.
2) Carefully pry off the plastic piece which surrounds the stereo. I used a thin screwdriver and sock, and slightly scraped things up. In hindsight I should have used a specialized pry tool for removing such things. I think there were four or five places where this plastic panel is clipped into place.
3) After you get the plastic panel pried off, slowly remove it. You will need to disconnect the three wire harnesses connected to the buttons / indicators on the plastic panel.
4) The plastic panel should now be out of the way. Remove the four mounting screws holding the radio in place.
5) Slowly slide the radio towards you. Disconnect the wire harness and the antenna.
6) You should be ready to install a new stereo.

As a side note, when pulling the wire harnesses apart be sure to pull from the plastic connectors and not on the wires. If you pull on the wires, they may come loose from the harnesses.

If you are hooking up an aftermarket stereo, be sure to use a wire harness to connect from the aftermarket stereo to the Pilot's harness (otherwise you'll end up having to cut off the Pilot's wire harness which isn't ideal). I'd also recommend soldering and heat shrink tubing the aftermarket stereo's wiring to the aftermarket stereo's wire harness. It takes a while longer than the crimp or electrical tape method but ensures a robust connection and no electrical shorts when done correctly.

My aftermarket stereo has a power antenna connection. This needed to be connected (the Pilot's antenna is part of the rear window and thus isn't powered) because there is a signal booster which requires power (otherwise you won't be able to tune into any AM stations and will get very poor FM reception).

Installin 07 f150 head unit in 04 f150


You could try a Salvage yard if you know what it looks like. Then I would think the Dealer may have a harness and experience with Ford radios. Radio Shack maybe, then last would be a Stereo shop but you need to know if they are a good installer. You would not want electrical problems after they work on it.
