Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

Hi, I am installing a new head unit into my dads 98' Buick LeSabre and the factory harness has been cut and I'm not sure of the color code and not sure how to run the extras thru the new head unit and how to run the interior dimmer so the new head unit will dim also. I did buy the aftermarket harness to install it properly but like I said the factory harness has been cut all but three wires and I'm not sure how to fix it right. Please help me. Thank you Dave

Metra makes wire harnesses for your problem. If your wire harness is, 70-5555 the part that goes into the OEM radio will be 71-5555
Try www.metraonline.com and put in the car info. The harness will come with wire codes for splicing the new plug.

My car stereo was stole they cut the factory wiring harness from the durango i need to know the color codes of the wires please


That's hard to answer cause it depends on how far back on the wire harness they cut. Plus if you have a Bose system or not. I would highly suggest to take it into a stereo install shop to at least check it out but maybe install the new stereo.

There is a wiring color code that all vehicles use but if the wires have been cut to far back they will be different colors. If you have a factory amp then you will have to rewire for the speakers to bypass it.

I added below the color code. Make sure you disconnect your battery before you start wiring anything.

Please note: You can do major damage to your truck computer and other components if you wire it wrong.

Proceed at your own risk

I have a 98 buick century someone put an after market head unit in and now i have no sound the harness is all tight any idea what else i should look for?


Was this just installed or did it just quit. If it was just installed make sure the remote turn on wire powers up the factory amp. Some decks will stop all sound if there is a short on a speaker. disconnect each speaker cycling the key each time and see if you get sound

Need wiring color codes to install a new radio


the easiest way to install a new radio is to get the wiring harness adapter for your vehicle it runs about $25 and then you do not have to cut the factory harness. the wiring codes will come with the new harness and is just matching up there color code to the new stereos color code.

1998 BUICK LESABRE CUTS OFF WHILE DRIVING


The problem is the crankshaft sensor for sure. It is mounted behind the crankshaft pulley which is pretty difficult to get off as you need a special puller. A shop should charge about 1.5 hours for this job. It is a very common problem.

Installation of new cd player in 2002 VR-X Lancer


There are aftermarket wireharnesses available. I suggest the $15-25 purchase. The wires usually match color for color to the aftermarket stereo saving a major head ache if attempting to figure out the factory harness. These adaptors are available at many audo part stores and local installation shops. To check the harness you need, Metra, on of the main aftermarket wire harness manufacturers has an application chart on line, see metraonline.com or a search for American International or Scosche.

I need to install a max385vd in a 2002 pord f-350, do i need an install kit?


Regardless of whether this is an amp or a head unit, an install kit is either very helpful or necessary. If it's an amp, you'll need it for sure - you can't power an amp with 18 gauge factory power wiring like a head unit can use. You need to get at least 10 gauge power and ground wire, 18 gauge remote turn-on wire, and RCA patch cables to conduct the sound. If you have a factory head unit, you'll also need a line-level adapter to give you a source for the RCA patch cables.

If this is a head unit, you'll need the adapter harness to plug your existing stereo harnesses into the new head unit. It makes it simple - the wires on the new head unit are color-coded for what they do, and the adapter harness is identically coded. Match the colors, then plug it in. You may also need an antenna wire adapter (some cars require this).
