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

JVC headunit oranges with white stripe (illumination wire).


As far as I know, If the illumination wire is connected, the radio dims the display when headlight is turned on.

unless you have a power antenna or an external amp, all those are extra wires. just cap them off. the orange wire is only used if the radio has an illumination feature that allows dimming on the radio. it is not needed to see the radio. DO NOT connect the blue/white from the radio to the orange of the harness. whenever you turn the radio on it will send 12V to your cars illumination circuit. this could damage your lights, dash lights and maybe the radios output.

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..

Lights dont come on on the stero but stereo is working what would it b also what are the orange with white and light grey wires


Be sure the orange wire with white tracer is getting power,. It is for illumination. You can visit the Sony website and download a free installation manual for this receiver. Hope this helps.

Replacing a stereo into a 2005 Saturn Ion


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

Wiring problems?


http://inform3.kenwoodusa.com/manuals/kdcmp238.pdf

There are no illumination wires on this deck, so the Orange and orange/wht are not used on the wiring harness. Orange wire is NOT for memory. Yellow wire is +12VDC Constant for memory.

If you hooked up the 12Vdc to the orange wire, your fuse for your dashlights have blown. Check your cars fuse panel for a blown fuse.

The orange wires are sending a signal out to radios with illumination circuts. You just sent a 12VDC signal upstream and it collided with the Cars signal and blew the fuse.

Tape off the orange wires, and all will be fine after changing the fuse.
