Hello... I will try and help you with your problem. I am assuming that you have cut the factory harness off in the truck? If you have and you can reconnect it, I would recommend doing this and then you can purchase a wire harness adapter and then just match the colors. The benefit in using an adapter harness is the ease of the installation, and the more you change the radio in the truck, the shorter the wires will get. If you do not have the factory harness, or cannot reconnect the old one, here is the hardwire code:
Wire purpose: Truck color: Alpine harness:
6 1/2" Doors
Left Front (+)
Left Front (-)
Right Front (+)
Light Green Gray
Right Front (-)
6 1/2" Rear Corners
Left Rear (+)
Left Rear (-)
Right Rear (+)
Right Rear (-)
this is actually an easy to fix solution, go down to your local parts store, or even walmart. what your looking for is a aftermarket radio adapter harness, this will allow you to connect your new stereo without having to cut wires or worry about if you got the right one in the right place. hope i could help, and good luck
Tricky really suggest getting a bentley repair manual well worth the money for the do it yourselfer. The issue is complex on different vehicles due to so many of them having wiring and electrontics tied into radios and then the computers. Bentley makes detailed wiring schematics also really suggest using mutimeters instead of test lights. If you go to the trunk check at the speakers write down the wire colors on both speakers then pull the door panels do the same that will give you left and right and of course front and back. Use a multimeter to test the remaining wires hopefully that should only be two for power and ground. Hope this helped.
Hook the 12v memory to a constant power, like the cigarette lighter, or parking lights(red I do believe) The yellow one is key powered, so hook that to something that only powers up with the key on. The black one is a ground, that should be obvious. As far as speaker leads, you can take the door panels off and see what wires are connected to the back of the factory speakers. Hope this helps.
check out this website www.mobileinformationlab.com
it is full of wiring diagram for vehicles.
did you happen to purchase the aftermarket wire harness that actually allows you to plug into the factory chassis harness? good luck let me know how you end up.
The cassette adapters are notorious for getting stuck in the deck. More often than not its the wire that comes out of it that causes it. The cleanest and safest way to remove the cassette adapter is to remove the radio, take off the top and "Help" it eject with your fingers or some narrow tool that may get behind it to push it forward and out.
If you dont want to take the deck out of the dash, you can try pushing the eject button while manipulating the adapter wire, but I dont recommend it. Its just better to take the deck out.
If the cd is ok, the read head on the cd player is probably covered in grunge! Get thee to ye olde local audio / TV shop and purchase a CD head cleaning kit.
Usually these come with a cd with a brush attached to it and some cleaning fluid.
Follow the instructions on the packaging and give your music cd another try.
you probly need a wiring harness....if this is the first aftermarket cd player in the truck... go to car audio place round town and ask for a wiring harness for your model truck....the wires will then be color coded.....hopefully this helps
