A picture requires an installation, which is what you are doing. You should invest in a vehicle specific wiring harness. The wiring colors match for the connection and said harness then plug into the factory harness. If the factory harness no longer exists then you need the wiring diagram for the vehicle. You mention the vehicle has a premium stereo, the Metra part number is 70-5510. It's for an amplified system.
sound like a direct ground, each wire system has it's own color head light, tail lights, turn signal, back up, reverse, best to buy repair Manual for your car and find out what your cars lighting system color are find out what light is blowing your fuse the check those wires for a worn spot or check if a bulb is making contact with metal. if you recently installed big stereo system then problem started see if you nicked wire harness. best wiring diagram I have found is in a Chilton's manual
if you havent taken the factory stereo out of the vehicle yet, if were you i would go to an auto store and buy wiring harness that plugs into your factory harness, that gives you all the colors to match up with your aftermarket... that way nothing gets cut on or messed up... and with the electical stuff linked to the stereo system, trust me you dont want a headache like that... a harness kit only cost like 15 bucks, plus if you ever wanted to get rid of the vehicle you could take your aftermarket stereo out, and plug the factory one right back in... hope this helps
Certain headunits be it factory and/or aftermarket have lock codes in them so in the event that someone were to steal your radio they would not be able to use it. Most of the factory unlock codes are in the vehicles owners manual. you can check there but if its not there you're going to have to go to the dealer to have it unlocked. Most of the time they will not and sometimes cannot give those codes out over the phone. Hope this helps...
