Having trouble installing my Pyle PLDBT30U

Is there an extra wire you have to get besides the standard wire harness to install a Pyle PLDBT30U? There looks like there is another wire i need to buy, but i am not sure if i have cut the wires or buy a new wire harness.

Your part number is Metra 70-5520
It is a standard Ford plug, but is used on your car as well.
Only 1 plug is necessary

    These are the wire codes to help u identify the plug in question.

    If you have a factory amp, it is located in the trunk (passenger side), and you will need to unplug and bypass the hi-level inputs (in) to the amp to the (out) of the amp. Like a jumper cable - otherwise the radio will not be loud (if it plays at all)

    heads up!

I have a Pyle PLR14MP that I am installing in my 1975 Ford F100 - There is only one wire to the ignition switch on the radio whereas my old radio had two wires. There is a green wire, a blue wire, a back...

The other wires are for display brightness and memory. In old OEM installations, there is only one wire for each speaker. The other wire is the chassis or body.

Do i need to bye a instalation kit to install a new sterio

It is usually a good idea to buy the installation kit, mainly for the wiring harness, but sometimes extra mounts are required during installation that are included in the installation kit. It is possible to install a stereo without the kit, but I highly recommend the kit.

How to install a cd/radio in a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire Went to Future Shop, they have the player, but i would have to buy hundreds of dollars of wiring because of the computer system in this year of vehicle....

The 2003 sunfire does, in fact, need extra wiring!
You'll need a mounting kit $20-$30 (required for all radios)
Wiring adapter harness required because of OnStar/Factory Amplifier/Navigation etc will run approximately $140 for the most expensive one.
Depending on the factory installed equipment (nav/onstar/amplifier) will determine which wiring harness you require.(1 of 4 available for this yr/make/model)
A normal standard wiring harness runs about $15 and looks like this....


Yours will look more like this one....
There is no way around the cost - as the other electronics in the vehicle are dependent on it.

How do i Install my pyle plr24mpf into a 1993 chevy cavalier?

Here is an easy way to figure it out. Inside the dash where the old radio was, you should be able to find the speaker wires. You should have two that run to each speaker, positive and negative. If you aren't sure about whether this is the correct pair of wires, I've got an easy way for you to find out. Just take a AA (1.5v) battery and touch each wire to one end of the battery just for a second, You'll hear a click come of the appropriate speaker. If you don't hear a click you either have a bad speaker or you have the wrong set of wires.
Once you locate the speaker cables you can just hook them up to the radio. From what I can tell on the internet, this radio is very simple. Red wire goes to the power supply, you will have to find a nearby wire with power from the old radio or you can tap into an existing wire for something else like the cigarette lighter. Just be aware that some wires only have power when the ignition key is on, so keep that in mind, depending on whether you want the radio to go off when you take the key out. Next you should see a black wire, this connects to the body of the vehicle, it is called a chassis ground. Find somewhere metal on the body of the car, and attach it there with a screw and washer. Make sure it is a good solid connection, you don't want it falling off or shorting out. You may see an existing ground wire from the old radio, they are usually black or brown or another dark color. Next you have left channel speaker, and right channel speaker, those should attach to the positive cable of the speaker on the appropriate side. The positive is usually marked with a white stripe or some sort of ridge embossed into the plastic insulation of the speaker wire. The two negative speaker wires will both connect to the chassis ground where you connected the black radio ground wire earlier.
If your wiring setup looks different, or these instructions are unclear, I would recommend you just take the whole works to a car stereo shop and have them put it in for you. If you screw it up you will probably damage or destroy your radio and possibly mess up your car electrical system also.
Good Luck...

Wiring troubleshoot

Make sure that your car is not amplified!! Some Celicas have an amplifier under the passenger seat. If this is the case, you will need to either bypass that amplifier and go directly to speakers, or you'll need the proper interface plug. The extra rapid heat build-up indicates that your radio is incorrectly wired (channels are mixed up)
Your Pyle radio may have an extra wire for "amplifier turn-on" or for "mute". A standard wiring harness for Toyota (Scosche part TA-02B) should work in dash behind the radio in non-amplified vehicles. If you are still having difficulty, please seek advice from a local stereo installation shop.

I am having trouble trying to install a stereo to my 1994 lincoln town car because i dont now the color code to the radio harnes so i can install it

Best thing to do is purchase a Radio Wiring Harness. These can be purchased at a Store like Circuit City, Best Buy, WalMart (not sure of your location) or a 12 Volt Specialty shop.

This harness will connect to your new radio harness and plug directly into the vehicle harness without having to cut wires. The Radio Wiring Harness will come with color identification to match to your radio harness.
