I have bought a 16 pin iso lead power wiring harness adapter to enable me to fit a panasonic stereo in my old BMW. Please could you tell me why the adapter has a brown wire which is not connected at one...

Harnesses are made for many vehicles. The harness you bought may fit another year model where the brown wire might be used. If you are not using this wire, just tape it up and secure it. It will be fine as long as everything is working on the stereo you have installed. good Luck.

I'm trying to install the frd04 but I have to connect the purple and green wires to the 24 pin insert...... Do I need to use anything special in order to connect them or do I just need to insert the wire...

this is for radios that have AUX button only if you have a SAT button don't use this interface

the gray violet needs to go to constant 12 volts it will be good if you can cut a litel of the pastic on the vehicle harness and attach this cable to that connection
use black tape to secure the connection
the black/green is ground and can go anywhere like the back of the factory radio or center screw

Im trying to change the radio out with aftermarket cd player in a 87 s10. witch wires are the power wires on the factory wires?

2 things. 1. Don't splice your factory wiring, look at auto zone or any auto repair place. buy the "factory radio adapter" (plugs into stock harness with new leads) 2. Buy a Haynes guide for your car also at these places. (will give pin outs for any wires etc) And for connector types I would suggest using the male female insulated crimp on ends, then if you go from one after market to another just unplug and go.

I hav a 95 berrta and im tying to put a head unit

Hello chrisuftring,

Here's a link to the wiring color code for the '95 Chevy Beretta.

You'll need to match the function of each wire from your head unit and the color code for that would be in your manual. Most aftermarket units are somewhat standard as far as power, accessory, ground, and speaker connections are concerned. But the wiring colors may be different for such leads as remote, power antenna, illumination, dimmer, and muting.

An Alpine head unit has the following wiring colors:
Blue - Power Antenna
Blue/White - Remote
Pink/Black - Audio Interrupt (muting)
Orange - Illumination
Red- Switched 12V+
Yellow - Constant 12V+
Black - Ground
Gray - RF Speaker (+)
Gray/Black - RF Speaker (-)
White - LF Speaker (+)
White/Black LF Speaker (-)
Violet - RR Speaker (+)
Violet/Black RR Speaker (-)
Green - LR Speaker (+)
Green/Black - LR Speaker (-)

With this head unit, you would wire Yellow to Orange, Red to Yellow, Black to Black, Orange to Gray, Blue to Pink, Gray to Light Green, Gray/Black to Dark Green, White to Tan, White/Black to Gray, Violet to Dark Blue, Violet/Black to Light Blue, Green to Brown, and Green/Black to Yellow.

Note that there are 2 "yellow" wires in your vehicle color code. You'll have to test them to determine which one is the accessory wire and which one goes to the left rear speaker. Using a 12V "test light" is the simplest. Connect one side of the light to ground. With the ignition ON probe the yellow wires. One of them should light the tester, the other one won't. Verify that the light goes out when the ignition is OFF and your have separated the redundant "yellows". The one that lit the tester is your 12V+ switched wire and the other one goes to the left rear speaker.

Hope this helps.

How do you install the frd03-dvd? mines came with no instructions.

Hello jeffery_armi,

The FRD03-DVD allows you to replace the factory head-unit and retain the audio and power to your OEM DVD player. With the FRD03-DVD, the audio from the OEM DVD player is connected to the auxiliary input of the aftermarket radio to allow the DVD audio to be heard over the vehicle's audio system.

The FRD03-DVD harness consists of a molex-plug, stereo RCA audio male connectors, and red and black wires ending in "pigtails".

1) Connect the molex plug into the OEM harness.
2) Connect the RCA audio connectors into the "AUX" inputs of your aftermarket head unit.
3) Tap the red "pigtail" wire into the "accessory" lead of the vehicle radio harness (also usually red).
4) Tap the black "pigtail" wire into the "ground" lead of the vehicle radio harness (also usually black). Alternatively, the black wire may be terminated with a ring terminal and secured to a metallic ground nearby.

Hope this helps.

Loose wire in wiring harness

You could eliminate the harness plug all together by cutting each respective wire on ether side of the plug and hard wire it or crimp on blade or bullet style male and female solderless connectors, one wire at a time.
