We got an aftermarket stereo for our 2001 Volvo s60 an got the wrong wiring harness so we cut into the stock harness to put the new stereo in an now the driver door has no power and all the electrical on...


Hi Kacie.

Pretty much the only thing to do is remove the harness you spliced into the incorrect harness and use crimp connectors (the GOOD ones, not those cheap plastic blue ones) to match wire-for-wire and restore the original circuitry. THEN have at the correct harness and reinstall the stereo wiring. It's a PITA all right, but it really is the best way to fix your problem.

Sorry about the bad news...

Color codes for stereo


They make kits just for this. Just plugs into the existing harness and then you run you wires to the wires from that harness, some may even have matching plugs that go directly to the Head units wire harness plug. I did My Mustang by cutting into the wire Harness and simply used a multimeter to check for battery, memory 12 volts and running light or dash board Illumination wires then you can test the wires coming out from the stock radio to see which are right, left , front, rear, antenna out, etc..

I just labeled them with magic marker on some masking tape with what they were before I cut off the harness permanently.

Should i have any spare wires when hooking up an after market car stereo


Yes, It's a very good possibility that you will have a few wires left over. Normally a wire for an aftermarket amp to be triggered on when you turn your radio on and possibly a power antenna or a dimming function that dims your radio lights when your headlights are on. It of course always depends on if you have a power antenna or not, or if you have an aftermarket amp or not or if you have the dimming feature on your car or not. These wires don't apply to everyone.
You will just match the colors between the wiring harness that came with the DUAL radio and the interface adapter that goes to your car. Make sure you use **** style crimp connectors. If not the wires could come loose or cause a popping noise or cause the radio to turn off while driving.
Other than that, installing an aftermarket radio is mostly matching the colors up between the two harnesses and crimping the wires together.3_6_2012_2_31_36_am.jpg

IF I HAVE A 98 DODGE NEON AND A DB165 CLARION STEREO HOW DO I MATCH THE WIRING TOGETHER?


Well, this depends on how easily you want the job. If you want it quick and easy, go to ANY best buy, sears, or car audio place and ask them for the appropriate wiring harness. A wiring harness is a pre-wired "Modual" that Links up with your car's current wiring modual. These are a WHOPPING 12-15 dollars. These piddly price can literally save you 1-3 hours of needless work. IF your just bent on saving that 12 bucks... and wanna solder ALL those wires together one by one and do all teh matching, etc, the first place to look would be the wires on the back of the Stereo unit. Most stereo output wires are labled in small print. Then find a manual for your car , year , make and model, and see what the stock wiring is... simply match em up and solder em together.

The wires for the stereo are cut


Yes this is not to bad to deal with.. make sure you use quality wire connectors so you don't have problems later with bad connections. you pretty much just have to match the colors from the harness in the car to the ones on your deck. If you don't want to cut off the harness connector on your deck just purchase one that you can connect to your deck and cut the wire ends on the other side of the adapter. The only wires you wont be able to match color for color is speaker wires... for these you will just have to hook them up temp. and test to see that they are connected to the proper speaker output. close.gif Read more >> Options >> answers-logo.gif
