Replacing a stereo into a 2005 Saturn Ion

I was going to splice the wires from the new $80 Boss stereo (x-mas gift) to the wire harness from the old stereo that does plug into the saturns wire harness plug but I have an orange illumination wire and an orange and white wire that I'm not sure what to do with??? I don't even know what the orange and white wire is? Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Mike

Not sure if your still looking for a solution or not but here you go. that orange and white wire is normally the wire that controls the dimmer within the stereo. when you dim the dash light the factory radio lights dim and that wire is suppose to make the new radio do that also. in my past i have found that only about 30 percent of the aftermarket radios actually do that when hooked up. give this a try and let me know. good luck

Have a wiring harness for your vehicle if not get one and have a dash kit that fits your vehicle now plug the new harness into the plug that came from your stock radio now match all the wires from the stereo to the harness twist and tape if you can't solder also may need an antenna adapter to fit your new stereo all wires should be labeled and it's ok if there are a couple you don't use

No sound.


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

I've got a 1988 Dodge Ram and I know nothing about Car Stereos


go down to a electronics shop (future shop or best buy) and they will have a connector that will fit the original plug. Some splicing will be required but its all color coded with the deck
hope this helps

Rockford fosgate installation?


The best way to install a stereo deck is go get yourself a Scoshe wiring harness. This will allow you to wire the harness directly to the stereo, then plug directly in to the OEM wiring clip that is plugged into the factory stereo. It helps if and when you sell the truck and want to put the factory stereo back in. Plus you dont have to hack up wires. Hope it helps. You can get the wiring harness from any car stereo installation or customization shop.

Do you have the harness adaptors? it is best to use these rather than cutting harness. you can swap factory radio back in at later date and they will tell you the wiring ,if not i will try and locate the diagram for you

ILO XM-MP3-CD Car Stereo wiring


they all use the same colors. Every CD/DVD player manufacturer uses the same color scheme on all the same wires.

If you're asking what the right wires are in your car i'd get a wiring harness and just match up the wires and plug it in.

However if you're just going to cut off the car wiring harness and splice everything in go to www.installdr.com and use the guides they have.
