Orange and white are usually speaker wires. you should be able to just tuck away without adverse effects.

1993 dodge shadow radio wire diagram i have a problem with my instrument lights on the dash board speed,gas,temp,gages lights will not come on the radio light is on and it plays and works good but i have...


Hello! I will assume you are connecting a factory radio for your 1993 Shadow.
Remove the Orange wire from ground...Listed below is wiring from car to radio; You may need this one day...You are correct; There isn't a dimmer wire...The Orange wire, from the radio, connects to the Orange/White of the vehicle...Grounding the Orange wire is causing your problem...

1993 Shadow...Orange/ White=Illumination...Red=Hot at all times...Red/White=Switched 12volts...Black=Ground

Factory radio...Orange=Illumination...Pink=Hot at all times... Red/White=Switched 12volts...Black=Gnd.


Car; Orange/White to Orange of radio
Red To Pink
Red/White To Red/White
Black To Black

Let me know how you make out..
