After putting in many stereos over the years, my suggestion is to get an after market wiring harness for the radio designed for your truck. They will have the same color wires for ease of installation. Remember that the black wire will be ground and the red and yellow wire will represent power. Here is a website you can go to to find the wire color code for your vehicle. http://www.modifiedlife.com

They sell a installation kit so you dont have to cut any wires. You unplug the factory unit install the proper plug into the new unit and factory harness and your done.

use a multimeter to check wires. you should get a voltage reading if your wires are good. check fuses. disconnect trailer harness and try checking wires from that point . if you have voltage you may want to check the wiring of the trailer harness to be certain it is correct. you may also want to check your ground to that side. if fuses are blown you have a short

You probably blew a fuse in the back of the radio, or in the fuse box. Check both to be sure. And remember, always disconnect the battery before you do something with the wiring harness.
