What stereo did you use as a replacement? If you used a aftermarket (kenwood, sony, etc) cd player, you need to use the proper adapter harness. These cars have a build in theft deterrent system that involves the stereo. So, when you replace the stereo, a component of your anti theft system is missing. The use of the harness gets around this feature somehow, and allows you to use aftermarket CD players. Also, ensure that no wires are getting pinched behind the stereo, and that all your connections are soldered and shrink wrapped to avoid any future problems. I have provided a link for the correct adapter harness to your vehicle. http://www.amazon.com/Stereo-Harness-Oldsmobile-wiring-installation/dp/B000KL2PEI
THE OLDSMOBILE ALERO DONT HAVE A EXTERNAL ANTENNA MAST. THE OLDS ALERO HAVE WIRE GRID ANTENNA INCORPORATED INTO THE DEFOGGER GRID IN THE REAR WINDOW.THE GRID ANTENNA HAVE A REAR WINDOW ANTENNA MODULE MOUNTED BEHIND TOP OF THE REAR SEAT BACK. THE RADIO ANTENNA CABLE GOES TO ANTENNA MODULE LOCATED TOP OF THE REAR SEAT BACK.
You can purchase a wire harness from Auto Zone for you particular car, all the wires match up and it takes the guess work out, it cost about $15.00 and about five minutes to connect wire and ready to install.
Your best bet on that one is to go to a place that sells car audio systems or even some autoparts retailers have them,and get the proper adapter harness already made up. A few more dollars but, a whole lot less headaches.
anytime you are installing aftermarket stereo in car you should purchase wiring harness converter which comes with schematic, but if you insist on doing it old school youll need a repair manual to show color codes on wiring or a 12 light meter but lucky for you I looked up the wiring codes online heres link: http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/stereodetail/1690.html
go to walmart find your cd player, dash kit ,wiring kit and then this is what you do .. remove the old radio attach the wiring harnes you bought to the factory wiring harnes this will allow you to match the color code up for your new radio with out cuting wires then install the new dash kit witch will allow you to install your cd player with a factory look this should be everything ou need to know
do you have a test light?your speaker wires should be four sets of matching color,dark/light blue,dark/light green,dark/light purple and one other matching set of colors. then there should be one black wire which should be ground.with a test light you can find your power and accesory wires. your power wire will always have power with key on or off,the acc wire will only have power when key on. i hope this will help.
