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

Should i have any spare wires when hooking up an after market car stereo


Yes, It's a very good possibility that you will have a few wires left over. Normally a wire for an aftermarket amp to be triggered on when you turn your radio on and possibly a power antenna or a dimming function that dims your radio lights when your headlights are on. It of course always depends on if you have a power antenna or not, or if you have an aftermarket amp or not or if you have the dimming feature on your car or not. These wires don't apply to everyone.
You will just match the colors between the wiring harness that came with the DUAL radio and the interface adapter that goes to your car. Make sure you use **** style crimp connectors. If not the wires could come loose or cause a popping noise or cause the radio to turn off while driving.
Other than that, installing an aftermarket radio is mostly matching the colors up between the two harnesses and crimping the wires together.3_6_2012_2_31_36_am.jpg

If you mean you bought a wiring harness adapter for your car so you could hook up an aftermarket deck - yes it's just color for color then.

Is there anyone who can answer a question re color codes for matching wires from harness to stereo i have a pioneer stereo and and need to install it in a honda civic need to match its wire colors to...


hoy cr*p. Thats a big question. I'm used to the simple hook up of red = hot wire, black equal ground wire, and white usually goes to the speakers. MOST electronic equipment use red as the "hot wire"...or the wire that is the main electrical wire. If your colors dont match, you might talk to a shop that specializes in installing car stereos. Good luck. thats how they make their money, but depending on the price you may decide not to mess with it yourself. Just label the wires with tape when you find out.

AC display won't dim after stereo installation


If you disconnect the stereo, does the temp. display go back to working properly? Did you connect the stereo Illumination wire correctly? Are all the other stereo wires connected correctly? Double check what the wires in the aftermarket harness are supposed to be and don't just go by color.

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...
