When removing a factory radio, the plug in the back of the radio(don't cut it). Audio shops sell adapter kits for radios. You can just plug the adapter into the cars plug, and then into the new stereo. This will save time and money in the long run. Please check into this first. Hope this helps.

Can i use the factory radio harness and factory cd/radio fom an 01 chevy sedonia van in my 04 chevy venture if so i need a color code for the radio wiring for a 01 chrevy sedonia van


I am not sure if the radio was changed between those model years. If not, they should have the same plug on the back. If it has changed I recommend that you look for an adapter kit that has the correct plugs. Splicing the wires is always a hassle and will likely lead to speaker problems in the future. Adapter kits can be found at Wall Mart or most auto supply stores.

I want to change my F-150 radio, basic, with a radio/cassette/cd, will I need a different harness?


You will need a harness adapter for your model truck. This you will want to solder and heat shrink over the solder joints (Dont just twist tem together) then just plug it in to the factory harness.

You will probably need an adapter kit also.

The wiring harness adapter should come with the color codes for the wires corresponding to your trucks speaker and power wires pinouts make sure you correctly connect them to the color codes of the stereo for proper speaker placement and voltages

Radio wires differ from the speaker to the radio


This is the most common problem with self installs.The best thing to do is to get the car radio installation plug,it will plug into the factory plug for your factory radio and will give you a color coded pigtail to wire into that usually matches up perfectly with new aftermarket car radios.If the wires are already cut then you best bet is to extend the wires so that they are easy to work with hookup the power,ground,antenna and try dirrerent combos to isolate each speaker and label the wires accordingly.
