94 frontier, cant get cd player to work. all the wires are right, but there is two more plugs that idk what they are for.


Make sure you have a good earth, no earth, no go. Just about any point on the metal car body or chassis will be good. Next use a circuit tester(it is just like a screw driver with a bulb and and wire running through it, it lights up if you have a powered circuit. They are cheap and simple a great test tool, cheaper than a multimeter.). Turn your ignition key to Acc., earth tool, probe wire, if light in tool lights, your wire is good for power tied to ignition. You can always run your power direct to the battery, but for a couple of reasons this is not advisable.

Lastly, check that speakers are wired correctly, your speakers have a + and - points that match the same speaker wires coming from the player.

The extra wires can be possibly for auto aerial, lights or whatever, if the player works without them, don't sweat it, just tape them up so they can't short out.

I need a radio wiring diagram for a Holden Commodore LS 1991


Regardless of colour coding, please follow the following instructions (require multimeter):


Note: Attach multimeter earth wire (black) to the vehicle body. Convenient places may be the metal ignition barrel, the vehicle's car arial plug, cigarette socket body etc.


1) Testing for voltage with key out of the ignition, locate the permanent positive wire. This will wire into the yellow wire on your new stereo. The yellow wire circuit powers the stereo's memory.


2) Testing for voltage again. This time you are testing for a wire which only offers power with the ignition turned on. This one will wire into the red wire on your new stereo, and will power the unit only with the ignition on.


3) Now you know which your vehicle's positive wires are you can now test for an earth wire. Switch the multimeter to the resistance setting. There is one setting which will allow a buzzer to sound once you find continuity. With the ignition off test each wire until you get a buzz and a low resistance reading. This should be your earth wire. Double check this with the ignition in the on position. It should remain the same. If it changes to a positive with the ignition on and with the vehicle's lights switched on, then this is the dimmer feed for the stereo's screen. If you unintentionally found the dimmer feed, then you can ignore this wire, and search again for a wire which only offers an earth.


Now you have your power and earth wires located and can wire these into your stereo before continuing.


4) Next you need to use the stereo's balance and fade controls to allow only one speaker output to work from the stereo. So let's start with Left Front speaker output only. turn the stereo volume to mid way so that you can hear when you have connected to the right speaker. bare the remaining wires on the car side and test combinations of the remaining wires until you find the front left speaker of the car. Wire your stereo's wires once you find the correct connections.


5) Repeat the above steps with all remaining wires, remembering to adjust your stereo's balance and fade controls to only allow one speaker output at a time, to ensure the only one possible channel to work and help you identify which of the car's wires power the speaker you have selected.


Before re-assembly of the dash panel, check that your stereo and all functions work properly, being sure to use your fade and balance controls again to test all speakers individually.


If you want to be extra careful and wire the vehicle's speakers positive and negative, according to your stereo's outputs, not that this makes much difference on standard stereo arrangements, then follow this next step:


Make sure you can see the speakers themselves and connect a 1.5 volt AA or AAA battery to the speaker wires. If the speaker's cone pushes forwards, then the wire you connected to the battery's + terminal is indeed the positive wire and should be wired as such. If the speaker does the reverse, then you have the wires the wrong way around. Do not repeat this test for extended periods as damage may be caused to the speaker circuit.


Tip: Always solder all connections and insulate well from each other. Stereo connections can corrode over time and are prone to movement behind the dash. Poor connections may cause faults and low quality sound.

I brought a rover mgzr and want to put radio in it but the wires in the loom have had the connectors cut off so i just got the speaker wires and the four wires to power the radio, I know which speaker...


My assumption would be black = earth, red/black = power, purple power antena? green white? start by getting a test lamp put the earth ********, turn ignition on & check all wires for power also test in acc position & off position in case 1 is memory (constant power) once you know which ones are power put the test light in the power & black to check the black is the earth. Once you have + & - & speakers it should work.

Put new stereo in car but spekers dont work and the airreul is atink like an earth


Please check if the stereo is wired according to the correct wiring specially connecting the +12, the switched +12 , the ground and the speakers. Now check each and every speaker carefully using a AA cell to hear the noise when the wires are held so as to confirm that the speaker lines are correct ., the speakers are working and there is no shorting.
The ground must be given seperately to the stereo and the antenae earth line is normal to the connection.

Wiring harness picture needed for 1993 Nissan Altima. When headlights turned on, stereo shuts off.


Nissan change their color codes on their harnesses all the time , a diagram won't be much use.
What has happened is that Nissan has a wire that appears to be an earth in the stereo harness , but goes live when the headlights are turned on ( it is there for the factory stereo to dim the lights when the headlights are turned on.)
Easiest way to connect stereo is to use a Multitester set on 20 volts to find Power , Accessory and earth wires, remembering to turn your lights on and off each time to check for the Nissan sneaky wire. ( You are lucky, I have seen whole looms go up in smoke because of that wire )
To isolate the individual speaker wires, solder a couple of wires to a AA battery and " flash " it across the pairs of suspected speaker wires while listening for a " Crackle " from the speakers, this is a handy way to figure out which wires go to each speaker without having to pull the doors apart to look.
Happy Fixing Marshall
