There are adapter plugs available for most models of vehicle that simply plug in to the dash wiring of your vehicle. Then you simply connect the color coded wires to the ones on the aftermarket stereo you are installing. It saves a great deal of time and is much safer than trying to figure it out on your own and risking frying your stereo or damaging your car.

You haven't listed the make and model of vehicle, if you do I can get you a part number for the adapter plug you need.

What is the wire color code for a2001 malibu stereo. i would like to put an after market stero in?


if you havent taken the factory stereo out of the vehicle yet, if were you i would go to an auto store and buy wiring harness that plugs into your factory harness, that gives you all the colors to match up with your aftermarket... that way nothing gets cut on or messed up... and with the electical stuff linked to the stereo system, trust me you dont want a headache like that... a harness kit only cost like 15 bucks, plus if you ever wanted to get rid of the vehicle you could take your aftermarket stereo out, and plug the factory one right back in... hope this helps

Im putting n a stereo but i dont no the color code


The stereo side of the wires should be labeled. Check out the12volt.com for a wiring schematic for the truck side. I advise against cutting and splicing wires for a stereo installation though. They make inexpensive harness adapters that will allow you to splice into the stereo harness without cutting into the factory wiring.

How do i remove the factory stereo out of my 2002 dodge durango and replace it with an aftermarket stereo and also getting the speaker to work if they are amped


take the plastic thing off that goes all the way around the guages or w.e. then ther should b 2 bolts on the front of the stereo take them out. take out the radio n unconnect wires. then get a wire kit n plug it in and hook it up. if the speakers dont work either get new ones or rewire them using all different wires.

I dont know which color wires are for what!


Dont know if you tried this already but go to a car audio store and ask for an adapter the plugs into your stereo and then it plugs into the factory wiring harness. its easier and cleaner and less stressfull. if you done so write back and Ill see if I can send you a pick or something.

Purchase the aftermarket wire harness at from a local installation shop. WIres will match color for color to this harness then mate to the factory connector. This could save hours attempting to figure out the factory wire harness.
