SOURCE: I am replacing the radio in a 2000 Malibu, and

Your probaly better of find the wires yourself its pretty simple.

First off you need to find the earth wire, its the wire with continuity to ground. Next you need to the wire that has power when the ignition is off, this is you constant/memory wire. Then find the wire that has power only when the ignition is on, this is acc. power wire.

Now to find which speaker wires go to which speaker. depending on how many speakers the car has there should be at least 4-8 wires for the speakers, two for each speaker.

all you have to do is get a nine volt battery an put power to the speaker wires and you should hear the speaker crackle, it wont hurt the speaker at all, if you cant get this to work just look at the wires on the speaker and match them to the ones in the dash.

hope this helps you out

I have bought a 16 pin iso lead power wiring harness adapter to enable me to fit a panasonic stereo in my old BMW. Please could you tell me why the adapter has a brown wire which is not connected at one...


Harnesses are made for many vehicles. The harness you bought may fit another year model where the brown wire might be used. If you are not using this wire, just tape it up and secure it. It will be fine as long as everything is working on the stereo you have installed. good Luck.

I dont know how to wire it to my car stereo wires


Do yourself a favor and run to audio store or even autoparts store & get an adapter plug/harness, cost is a few bucks but well worth it. It plugs into factory harness & you wire your new stereo to it according to diagram with new system.

Stereo Upgrade in 1997 Sentra


hi there. I am not sure about the speakers. But there is a wiring harness available for a aftermarket head unit. I have a '97 sentra the base model XE version. I have just put in an alpine head unit and you defenately hear the difference even on factory speakers. But you will need 2 kits to install an aftermarket head unit in the car. 1. A dash kit. I got mine from canadian tire for about 20 bucks, it comes with instructions on how to put it together and its straight forward, just make sure u get the one for your year and make of car.

2. The wiring harness. there available at mostly every car audio place for about 10 bucks. again make sure u get the one for your year make and model of car. installing this is difficult so unless your good at electronics get it professionally installed. you have to splice the wires into the back of the aftermarket unit, then the plugs plug right into your existing factory car harness.

hope this solves your problem, the dash kit is easy to put together and install into the car, but the wiring harness is a bit difficult, i had my harness installed for about 40 bucks and u save money if u put the dash kit togehter yourself because thats 1 less thing they have to do. good luck.
