There is no other go other then checking the voltage of each and every wire with the multimeter and have to connect to the respective wires of the radio which wire matches the voltage

Best Buy installed a new cd player in my 03 Tiburon GT. All of my instrument cluster lights no longer work. The fuse is ok. Anyone know the wiring color codes. Best Buy is unco-operative and want me to...


Is fuse 29 the one you say is good? If that fuse is good, check your tail lights. If the tail lights are not working either, check the TAIL LAMP fuse in the engine compartment relay box.
There are 2 different wiring diagrams depending on if you have the amplifier or not. If you have only the basic radio, it would not have the amp. If you have a premium option, it would have the amp.
There is also another wiring color code I got from another website that's different--more like the standard colors. I'm going to include that color code as well in case you find the colors don't match the diagrams.
In the diagrams, there are actually 2 wires that run the light on the radio. One is green and one is brown with a white stripe. An aftermarket CD player will probably not have any wires for the light and just have it come on when the radio is on--day or night. So, if they connected those factory wires anywhere, that may be your problem.
I have pasted all of the relevant wiring diagrams below, though they may be hard to read because of picture size policies at FixYa. Please let me know if you have more questions.

I have a 1994 silverado 2500 cab and a half. i am trying to use the stock wires and put in a pioneer supertuner. my problem is that every wiring diaram tells me the wires for the speakers and everything...


Most auto parts stores sell an aftermarket radio install kit. It will come with the connectors to adapt to your stock harness and then just follow the instructions provided and it will make it much easier. Radios are not an easy install anymore. 1 wrong wire and the truck may not even run

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.
