    We tried to hook up a new radio in our 2004 Pontiac Grand Am, we got it all hooked up and when we turned the key we had power to the radio but the car wouldn't start, as soon as we unhooked the new radio the car started just fine??? Weird! What is the deal how do you fix this??

I need to know how to wire a pioneer 150MP stereo wiring harness to a Pontiac Torrent. 2008.


Best thing is to buy the correct harness adapter as your vehicle uses a class 2 databus. Replacing the radio and not using the harness you will lose the door chime, ignition chime, on star, and any driver info that is done via the radio as well as there is no accessory wire for the factory radio. If you still want to do it without the harness go to www.modifiedlife.com. there is a large wiring database on their site

I just got a Insignia cd/stereo/MP3 car radio and I really need an installation manual. Lots of wires, colors, don't know what they power. Where can I get the manual? It's going in my 01 Dodge Ram


Greg,

Do yourself a HUGE favor. Drop $8 on a radio wiring harness connector. You wire it to the aftermarket radio while sitting at your kitchen table. When done, yank the factory radio and simply PLUG IN the new radio directly into the truck's wiring harness. Done! No cutting of your truck's wires, splicing, taping or hanging upside-down making connections. Plus, when it's time to sell the truck - you can pull out your radio and dump the factory radio back in the truck in no time.

You can find these at other stores locally too. Good luck!

I was installing an after market Pioneer CD Player into a 1993 Suzuki Swift. I installed it with all the right wiring and everything was working fine with the stereo. Once I turned the headlights on, that...


The adapter harness for the radio is probably not wired correctly. I'll bet you also have no tail lights. You probably wired the harness so that the illumination circuit for the factory radio is wired to the wrong terminal of the new radio, thus the problem occuring when you turned on the headlamp switch. I have seen this many times when someone is trying to wire a radio adapter harness without having access to the factory wiring harness diagrams for the vehicle...the wire colors on the adapter harnesses don't allways match the wire colors of the factory harnesses. You need to know which wire is which and wire the correct wires together regardless of what color they may be. If you wired it simply by the wire colors, it most likely is not correct.
If you are lucky, it only blew the fuse for the tail/dash lamps. It is possible that you now have some serious vehicle wiring harness damage caused by the short circuit that was created.
I would disconnect the new radio and get the car fixed first. Then you need to find out which of the wires in the factory harness is for the illumination circuit and make sure that nothing is connected to it on the adapter harness. Most aftermarket radio/stereo systems do not use this circuit at all.
