What is the color code for the stereo in a 2004 chevy venture

I'm sorry Brando, but I do not know what you are referring to by "color code" for the stereo. Factory stereo? Wiring harness color coding for an aftermarket stereo? If you could provide more information about the problem you are having I'd be glad to help you, Thanks...

No sound.

The first thing you need to do is doublechecking all the new wirings, it sounds like a contact.

Wiring diagram for a kenwood KDC MP232 to a 2003 chevy malibu

Aftermarket cd players are all universal and have the same colors. You need to go to your local car audio store such as walmart, bestbuy, ect and buy a wire harness adapter. Then all the wires are color coordinated to make it easy, just wire colored wires together and plug in. If I have helped please leave positive feedback. Thanks

Pioneer deh-2700 in 1995 chevy truck help.

your best bet is to buy an adapter harness.they are available at wal-mart as well as autoparts/car audio outlets. you will not have to cut anything. the adapter will plug into the factory harness and the wires from it are color coded the same as your pioneer radio. you can also buy them online here.
Hope this helps!

Need to hook up a 200 pioneer stereo with wire harness from 96 honda accord to the wiring on a 64 impala

you'll need a small 12 v lamp to figure out which one has the power terminals. after mapping that out you need to find a small battery and hook it up to a pair of wires to figure out to which speaker the wires go to.

note : new car radios don't use the chassis ground as common (negative).. the head unit has a negative and positive wire for EACH speaker.
