It could blow a Fuse, it could do nothing. What is the Year/Make/Model of the Stereo and then you need to determine the Wiring Cause. RED is normally POWER, was there voltage applied to car when you touched the wires?What happens if my yellow and red wires on my - eaudint.jpg

Connecting a new stereo with red for AC power, black for ground, Yellow for battery fuse wire. The car stereo wiring has orange, black, yellow but no red wire. it has 3 others as well


Orange is your steady power source and Yellow is your switched power source so your new stereo would connect Red to Yellow and Yellow to Orange in most cases but it is best to use a test light to check before making connections.

Radio wiring code for 1987 mercedes benz 300. With aftermarket radio the windows switch ligths blinks and have no instrument ligths.


Hi, the aftermarket stereo does not use the illumination wire. You must tape that wire off (purple/gray). That wire is either connected to the wrong place or is touching chassis ground and causing your instrument lights to dim.
Connect the stereo's red wire to the car's black/yellow wire; and connect the stereo's yellow wire to the car's red/white wire.

Gauge cluster lights won;t light - replaced cluster, dimmer switch - did put new stereo in car? Fuses, bulbs all good. What could be the problem?


When you put the stereo in, what did you do with the red wire with a green stripe? The aftermarket radios don't always use these, so you have to wrap the ends, depending on whether or not you used a wiring harness. If that wire is shorted on the chassis, it will blow the dimmer fuse.
