No power applied to radio


There were four Grand Cherokee models in 2000 and two radio systems. If it is an aftermarket radio you are trying to install, the radio-to-harness adapter may be the wrong one. Also, where remote steering wheel controls are involved, they may not work with the new radio.

Radio out


Ensure that the unit you've used comes from a vehicle with steering wheel controls. If it's a aftermarket radio additional hardware is needed. Metra SWC-1 is often used.

Steering wheel radio wires, i need a wire color diagram to steering wheel for the aftermarket radio i need to know the wire colors that controls what.


The wires that control the radio from the steering go to the Body Control Module (BCM), not directly to the radio. The BCM sends data over the serial bus to the radio.

Why can't i use my steering wheel controls?


Most likely the reason behind that is your new cd player will not support that function. Your original cd player built for your car was engineered to mesh perfectly with all the buttons in your car and when you install an aftermarket radio into your car it just isn't capable of controlling all the features(steering wheel controls) that the original was built for.

You may be able to find an aftermarket cd player for suited for your car with the capabilities that you desire.

Good luck,

What are the two plugs on the back of the factory radio


Power for memory, power when key on or accesories,etc, then all the speaker wires. Have you stopped at a stereo sales place, or autoparts place and asked for an adapter harness to go from your vehicle to an aftermarket stereo? It will make it much easier, much cleaner in case of removal later & will probably save a big headache too.

CTS in dash navigation system


There is a company called PAC that specializes in modules like you describe - keeping the steering wheel controls functional with an aftermarket radio.

Click HERE to visit their site. You have to choose a compatible manufacturer. Basically - it is turning the steering wheel controls into a "remote" hidden in the dash.

CLICK HERE for the PAC installation guide for the 2006 CTS

For best results and compatibility, look for a shop in your area that carries PAC - it is a common manufacturer in the BIZ, and have them install it.

The simple answer to your question is YES as long as you use the module compatible for the brand of radio you are installing.
