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

The wire to which you refer applies power to the radio with the ignition switch in the ACC position and also maintains power flow to the memory when the radio is off. The proper connection should be apparaent from the installation instructions that came with your Metra adapter.

Your best would be to buy a harness adapter to connect the new deck through the adapter into the existing OEM wire harness connector. It makes things so much easier and more reliable.

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.

My car stereo was stole they cut the factory wiring harness from the durango i need to know the color codes of the wires please


That's hard to answer cause it depends on how far back on the wire harness they cut. Plus if you have a Bose system or not. I would highly suggest to take it into a stereo install shop to at least check it out but maybe install the new stereo.

There is a wiring color code that all vehicles use but if the wires have been cut to far back they will be different colors. If you have a factory amp then you will have to rewire for the speakers to bypass it.

I added below the color code. Make sure you disconnect your battery before you start wiring anything.

Please note: You can do major damage to your truck computer and other components if you wire it wrong.

Proceed at your own risk

Does the xo vision avs 444 need a power source? and how do i power it up?


i CANNOT FIND THAT MODEL !! Is it an in dash stereo ? Or an external accesory ? XO makes SOO many different things that I need more info. Unless its a stereo unit that goes into your dash, for that you will need to go buy a clip that takes the stereos wires and turns them into the plugin for you factory stereo hole. (EG- Canadian tire, about $15 for most cars.)

I want to take out factory radio to install stereo


Stereo dealers have wire harness adapters for almost every make and model of car. It will come with a connector both with color coded pigtails that are usually prestripped. The package will described which wires go where and their color codes. The deck you bought should have a pigtail with color coded wires and they'll match up to the ones on the harness adapter for your car.
After connecting them all properly, you can take your deck with the attached pigtail and plug adapter and plug it directly into your car stereo plug where your old radio was connected...don't forget the anntenna lead as well... Not to difficult...email if you get stuck...

that should be all you need. The adapters are called a dash kit with should fill the in the gaps of the factory stereo, and also you will need an aftermarker wiring harness to go from the factory plug out to your new head unit.
