Question about 1997 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Dodge Intrepid. I just installed a radio in the car using the Wal-Mart wiring harness, but when I turn on the radio, I have to turn it all the way up to hear the music, and its all treble. There are two wires that are not hooked up from the harness, An Orange one and a plain blue one. I have the remote wire hooked up to the harness (Blue with White Stripe)and all the speakers are hooked up right. But I still have to turn it up all the way to hear any thing. Any Ideas?

That aftermarket radio may require different ohm speakers than whats in the car. open trunk and look at speaker magnets they will have the ohms printed on them if they dont say 4 or 8 ohms then they are incompatable with your stereo and may damage it if ohms are lower than 4 ohms. also make sure your radio balnce tone fader settings are correct. some of these new radios are so comlicated with that stuff it requires a 100 page book just to operate it.

I want to replace the radio in a 2002 grand am


Easy get the radio you want, then go to wal-mart and look for a wire install plug, and a radio install bezel. The plug will plug directly into the factory harness in the dash and all you have to do is connect the color coded wires from the new radio harness to the aftermarket one. The bezel will fill in the extra space from the size difference from the factory to the new radio.

Need to know color schematics for radio harness wiring


If installing Toyota radios/CD Players they just plug in regluar sockets in vehicle.
If installing Non-Toyota radios/CD Players youll have to buy a wiring kit from Wal-Mart/Circuit City/etc it would have the wiring diagram in it.
