Dodge uses a floating ground system on their sound systems, which usually creates some problems for easy swap over, plus you may have an amp in there that you weren't aware of. Check this site and search for your vehicle and wiring explanation. If worse comes to worse, running your own speaker wires independently to each speaker may be best solution in the end. You should be able to buy an adapter at any car stereo place that will make all that easier as well, that converts all that for you, or should if it's the right one for your application.

Installed aftermarket radio in 2001 dodge durango. not sure what to do with purple wire which is data lines system? and now guages dont work and neither does the mpg read out or anything up there all


Hopefully you used an aftermarket wiring harness that plugs directly into your Durango harness...(no cut splice etc) You did not mention if the new radio played correctly...sounds more like a fuse
to your Durango on these feature functions...your owners manual should help you identify which one...my guess is this 1 fuse controls your missing functions...hope this helps.

After Market Radio Installation


Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

Installing aftermarket radio. Wheres the accessory??


Did the radio play after you took the key out?
And do the chimes come through the speakers?
If so, then you need to get a harness to go inbetween the radio and the car harness.

Installing an aftermarket stereo, spliced the wires and have everything connected including the remote wire to the factory amp wire but still no sound.


There is no remote wire on these newer trucks....03 and up....u have to buy the harness....although i didnt....i have an 03 gmc sierra and just pulled the schematic and matched the wires. And there is no programming to do on an aftermarket stereo.....I work for GMC and we cant program aftermarket stereos......if u buy the right harness ...and its over $100 then everything should work just fine.....and this does not disarm ur alarm system either....mine still works fine....hope this helps

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban


You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.

Speakers not working good


The door buzzer chime is on the fuse box cover over the clutch/brake pedal. Trust me, you will enjoy not having it, i removed mine. As far as the radio...on my contour, there is a inline dash amplifier beneath the dash. If you have an aftermarket radio, i would pull the radio out and check the connections. A Haynes Manual #36006 has proven to be very useful with the wiring schematics. Good luck..98contourSVT
