Pin color code

Just a suggestion.
Go to Walmart and get a Scoche adapter kit for your car radio.
It will make it so much easier to do.
But normally the darker colors are the speakers the red orange etc side is power.

Which radio wires go where? 2003 Chevy Cavalier

red=hot/power, black-ground/negative,orange or yellow usually = remote wire for an amp or interior as far as the speaker wires go,strip the wires on the new radio and just touch different wires from in the dash to ONLY the speaker wires on the back of the radio,thats not the best solution ever given but it's what i have always done in that position.

2001 BMW 740IL 2001 RADIO WONT STAY ON,WHY????

I have the same problem but after reading all kinds of post I've learned that there are a number of things that may effect the nav screen and the radio intermitten turning off after a few minutes.

1) is called the magic reset. Look up the procedure. I believe after the vehicle has been sitting and not run for a while, you need to take the negative terminal off. 20 seconds to a minute. Then re connect.

2) battery may be low. Test it or recharge it and see what happens. You may need a new battery.

3) Fuses

4) Failed Nav system or amplifier.

I'm going through mine tomorrow. See if any of the easy fixes work first.

I purchased pioneer speakers and am attempting to replace my stock speakers. Problem is there is already a plug and outlet on the factory speakers, which there is not on the new speakers. is this called ?...

yes they are called speaker harness adapters. You can just cut the factory ones off if you know the polarity (positive/negative) of the speaker wiring.
An easy way to find out is take a 9v or AA battery and two pieces of wire. Strip the wire and attatch one piece to the positive and another to the negative of your test battery, I use red wire for (+) and black for (-). Then take the other ends and touch the factory speaker connector (where it plugs onto the speaker). If it moves out or UP then you have the polarity correct and the wire that your red tester went to is the positive of the new speaker and the black test lead wire touched the negative. If the speaker moves in or DOWN then you simply have it reversed.
All pioneer speakers come with a set of wires so you can cut the factory connector off and put the new one on.

I put an after market cd player in my 2003 acura 3.2 tl type s. all the speakers are working fine but i am not getting any sound out of the factory subwoofer, it is not working. any idead what i did wrong...

You got to connect the blue amp turn on wire. If still dont work. then you got to find the factory amp find the two wires that sends frequency signals to the amp. You will see a total of 7 wires. So you've got to use process of elimination. Use a multimeter.

1.Constant 12 Volt
2. Ground
3. Amp turn on
4. + output wires going to the + of the subwoofer
5. - output wires going to the - of the subwoofer
6 + input wires going to the radio harness
7 + input wires going to the radio harness

6 & 7 are like the rca's you plug in at the input of an aftermarket amplifier and and on the other end plug in the output subwoofer of the Radio.

So on a factory amp you wont see any RCA's its all wires. Once you find the first 5 just remember the last 2 wires.

If you want your radio to control the gain and volume of the Subwoofer get a long RCA plug it on the back of your radio that says sub output and then cut the other end of that RCA and connect the positive the + input wire on the amp and the negative to the negative input wire on the amp.

If you dont know whats positive or negative just go ahead and connect it and experiment. You will know if your in phase when the subs sound boomy. Then the connections are correct. If it sounds Tinney then the connection is out of phase. solder then tape all connections with black electrical tape. Dont leave any power wires exposed or else cause a short and blow fuses.

Good luck

I cannot find the

use your handy dandy test light. it's the easyest way. pretty cheap at autozone. remember, you will have one at 12volts constant, if you can't find one on the connector, tap your cigarette lighter. next turn on the key and find the switched 12volts and make sure it's the right one by turning power on and off. turn the lights on and off just to make sure you didn't get the illumination wire.

Loose wire in wiring harness

You could eliminate the harness plug all together by cutting each respective wire on ether side of the plug and hard wire it or crimp on blade or bullet style male and female solderless connectors, one wire at a time.
