What type of stereo do you have? You can try and google that stereo name and put the words "wire connector, or adapter" after it and see what you come up with.. OR.. you may be able to go to wal-mart and check their department for adapters that may fit your stereo.

How to install this kit

Ok you would run your power(red) wire to your car battery ( ). You would run your remote(blue) wire to the remote wire in the back of your headunit. Same with your terminal/ audio wires. Finally you find a good ground for your black(-). Ex. My ground is the bolt to hold my back seats in. You just need it to connect to ur car body.

I cant get no power to my cap how do i hook it up

There sould be two post one for a positive and one for a ground, connect the wire from your battery to the positive, then run another wire from the cap to the amp. For the ground run a wire from your car body (the shorter the better) to the ground post on the cap, then you can run a ground from the cap to your amp OR you can run a ground from the car body to the amp (whichever may be easier for you) Remember to disconnect the ground from your battery before wiring, this will help prevent arching wires and damage to your system.

Hope this helps.

Having problems wiring a jensen vm8113 to my '05

any time I would wire an amp in my car I'd hard wire the power to the battery and the remote line would go to the fuse box ( cigg,acc,dome light, ect...)usually on the back of any after market head unit the remote line is blue or blue with a white stripe and most always it will have a connection crimped on the end.

Cant figure out what all the wires go to

Most car stereos have wiring for power, ground, speakers and amps/accessories, if you do not have an amp or fewer speakers you will not use all the wires, look in your manual or look on line for a wiring diagram to see what all the wires go to. Your main wires will be main power (usually Red) Back up power (for memory usually orange or yellow) a ground wire (usually Black) and speaker wires.

I was wondering which wires are which to hook up an after market stereo in my 1991 plymouth laser. i need to know what are the power wires and the speaker wires on my stock wire harness.

I don't have the exact wire pinout, but I can offer you a generic method. Usually wires in an automotive wire harness that are Red, are power.
I would suggest you buy a cheap multimeter, (If you don't already have one), and set it to the DC volts-50 volt range. They have multimeter's that are relatively inexpensive. $10 or $12 dollars.

There will be a Red lead to a probe, (Positive), and a Black lead to a probe. (Negative) Hold the Red lead to the red wire. Touch the Black lead to any good ground. Any clean of paint, metal surface on the car. The needle should go up to 12 volts on the DC scale.

Ground wires are generally Black or Green. Should you see a Green wire with a stripe on it, this is not a ground wire.

Wires that are of a solid color and have a stripe on them, are usually speaker wires. They will be in pairs. There should be a wire of a solid color with a stripe on it, and a wire of the same color, but no stripe, to make up one pair. One pair is for one speaker. For example:
Blue color wire with a White stripe, and a solid Blue color wire.

There may be two pairs of wires, or four pairs. Two speakers in front, two speakers in back, for the four pairs of wires.
After you find the power wire, and have it attached to the stereo, plus a ground wire, I suggest you make sure ALL the other wire ends are not touching each other, on the stereo. Put a small piece of Black electrical tape on them.
Take one pair of speaker wires, from the car harness, and attach them to the stereo. Turn the stereo on, and see which speaker wires you have. Move the Front/Back, and Left/Right controls.
Now it's just a matter of finding out the correct hook ups for those wires. Match them up.

What did they do????

this most likely was a remote ON/OFF for the amplifiers, sometimes it is easier to do than locating the remote wire on the dash unit.
