How to set up radio without wiring diagram : First you need to hook up the lead and ground power wire to your radio.(the lead usually has a line all the way down it). Turn power on to the radio and switch to am/fm. Locate any lead speaker wire and connect it to front right -. Then take all ground speaker wires one by one and touch them to front right +. As soon as you hear a sound, find out which speaker it is coming from, as soon as you have identified correct speaker remove wires from right speaker and mark them carefully. Do this with the rest of speaker lead wires an speaker ground wires and you will be able to connect your stereo.

Iam upgrading my 98 corolla stereo to sony. My stereo says ground wire is brown and aftermarket sony stereo say is black what should i do


Black or black with a white stripe has always been ground. I would check the brown wire with a volt ohm meter. Set it on lowest ohms, Probe the brown wire to any metal part(you may have to scratch the metal. The meter will show numbers. If it reads OL. then it not a ground. Brown wires are always for interior lighting. to include radio. But i have to say, I have never done a 98 toyota.

Check colour coding off old unit plug too new unit plug sounds like acc wire is in wrong position for your model. Put stereos together an check loom from actual deck should have a plug on end make sure both same, if stereo has no plug from it an you plug loom into rear of unit then wrong stereo given an you will need service manual to correct wiring positions.

Tailights,Dashboard Lights Fuse Keeps Blowing Out


One thing to check and I have come across this a couple of times is that some factory stereos used a black wire for the stereo illumination, if you have wired the black (earth) from the new unit to this wire it will cause the fuse to blow, disconnect the earth from this wire and wire it directly to the vehicle.

I have a toyota trueno 1992 and i want to put a new stereo in it


Go to the auto parts store and get a wire adaptor made for a 1992 trueno. It will plug into your factory harness. The wire colors are prematched to your sony and other aftermarket stereos. Just match the wire colors, splice with connectors making sure no wires are exposed. (A little electrical tape for good measure around splices helps). Then it just plugs in. If your factory stereo has mounts that screw onto the radio, unscrew them and attach them to the sony. Remove sleeve from radio and discard. The screw holes are already on the sony.

1998 sunfire installed stereo and now dash lights and tail lights blowing fuse


Get a wiring harness connector for your 1998 GM car - THEN carefully follow each wire color on the harness. Do NOT connect anything to the GM orange wire except "Memory". Do NOT connect anthing to the harness for "Lights" or "Dash" or "DIM" - you will blow fuses. Only connect the Power, the memory and the speakers - period. Then you'll be safe.

2000 dodge caravan just stopped running while i was driving. it keeps blowing the 4th 20 amp fuse counting down from the rear of the fuse block. when you use a jumper wire to bypass the fuse the van runs....


If it is like the 2000 Neon it is power to the computer and without it the vehicle won't run. That hard part will be finding the reason it is blowing because if you bypass it with a straight wire you take a chance on burning the vehicle computer out. My problem turned out to be the Alarm power wire coming free from where it had been attached at the rear of the fuse panel and brushing up against that position and causing the fuse to blow.

I have 2 wires coming from the positive battery terminal. The first wire goes underneath the car to the starter. The second wire is separated at what appears to be a fuse link which goes into the drivers...


Hi, this second wire is a permanent live feed for inside the car, the things it runs are things like the stereo all its their for is so the stereo dont lose any stations that you have stored into the memory other than that their isnt much else it runs, maybe the clock, you could check by seeing what isnt working when the key is out, check the clock and stereo, if the stereo works with the key out then it must have its own live feed.

the chances are it wont work and you will lose the preset saved stations.

i hope that has given you some idea of what its for.

please let me know if you need further assistance.

plz can you rate this post as i have pages of unrated posts, thanks
