Re: possible wiring problem?

I think you should add more details here, cause "volume problem" is a very vauge concept. it could mean too many things.

Do I need a special wiring harness for a Sony CDX-GT35UW to install in a 2006 Ford F-150

You might need an adapter, such as made by Scosche, that makes the installation much easier than cutting and splicing.

Did the Durango have the Infinity sound system? If so, there is a separate amplifier that is probably not being activated. Look for a blue or blue/white wire on the harness adapter and connect it to the Pioneer's blue/white wire. If it does not have blue/white, use the solid blue one.

Where do i hook the blue wire up to on a dual xhdr6435 into the dash

Hi, the blue wire is used to turn on a separate amplifier or to raise the antenna. If you don't have a telescoping antenna or amplifier, just tape off the blue wire and leave it hanging behind the head unit. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

What is the solid blue wire go to? I know its not the remote or power.

Hi, the blue wire is used to signal an amplifier to turn on. If you do not have a separate amplifier, the blue wire can sometimes be used to operate an antenna motor. If your antenna does not retract, the blue wire is not used.

I have a CDA-9855 Alpine head unit. It worked just fine when removed from my prior vehicle (05 VW Golf). I just installed it in an 01 Land Rover Discovery II using a wiring harness adapter so no cutting or...

it sounds like you have the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) turning on an external amplifier in your rover. the antenna remote wire turns off when you leave tuner mode.

No sound coming from my speakers

Possible scenerio's with the little info you gave.

1.You have a bad speaker thats blown or the wires are touching the chassis of your car.

2. You have a factory amp and you need to connect the blue wire to the amp turn on wire. And if it still doesnt work then you have to rewire it complete or maybe have to get a special car amplifier compatible harness so your aftermarket works with your amplified system in your car.

3. In certain Ford cars they crisscrossed the back speaker wires. To test this unplug your harness from the radio. VERY IMPORTANT( splice these colors of wires in the middle enough so you can use a 9volt small rectangular battery to make the speakers you want to test pop(harmless))
1. green = back left + speaker
2. green/black = back left - speaker
3. purple = back right + speaker
4. purple/black = back right - speaker

test green speaker wires first touch battery to the + and - and the speaker should pop if not you have already discovered the problem. Know this time pop the green + and the purple/black - on the 9volt battery if the speakers pop you have found the solution.

Just criss cross the the negatives of the back speakers. From the radio harness end attach green to green, purple to purple, green/black to purple/black and last purple/black to green/black. And all your speakers should work again.

Dont ask me why late Ford Models crisscrossed their speaker wires. They just did.

because you have a built in factory amplifier that has to be bypassed. another option is to buy the kit that they make so you can USE your factory amplifier.

if there is no amplifier separate from the radio - the blue /white wire from the back of the radio goes to the solid blue wire on the harness attached to the car's plug. the orange wire is not supported by the kenwood radio, so make sure you tape it well- if your not using a separate amp also tape up the blue/white wire coming off the harness you have coming out of the harness to the car. if this helps you please give me a good rating- if not please e-mail me at respectfully M.

red= accessories power on
yellow= power always on memmory
black= ground
blue white= amp switch this goes to amp
blue= power antenna
the other wires are speaker wires top is for the fronts
the bottom set is for the back speakers this is simple
suggestion if you dont know the wire hook up i suggest taken the wires and sterio to certified car sterio installer pay 5 bucks and have them splice the wires together for you so you dont screw up your vehicle wireing or your sterio this is crucial

Alpine CDA-7840

Some 4-Runners have a factory system that uses a separate amplifier to power the rear speakers. In this case you need to activate the amplifier using the blue/white remote output from your Alpine deck. It sounds like the wire that activates the amplifier is currently attached to the deck's blue "power antenna" output, so that the amplifier is only on when the tuner is selected. Disconnect whatever is attached to the blue wire behind the deck, and attach it to the blue/white wire instead. That should solve the problem.
