I have a 1998 Toyota Camry...Trying to hook up an Alpine...Need to know what wires to connect to the alpine.Car Wires are same with grey spots.....


From what I can tell you cut the wires to your factory wiring harness and that is what you want to hook up to. My advice is to reconnect the factory harness and buy the adapter harness for your car and use that to hook up to the alpine it will save you hours and possibly your sanity. If you want to hook up directly to your car without the adapter you will need to figure out what wires are the power ignition and ground with a multimeter or power light. Easiest way to find ground is to just put in a ground wire with in a foot or so from the deck. Then it's just a guess and check for the correct placement of power. I suggest turning the power placement on the deck to what speaker you want and repeat for all speakers until your finished. Or you can buy a Chiltons or Haynes manual the should have a wiring diagram

How to hook up the pioneer stereo to wire harness?


Not real clear on question, but you can buy a direct fit wire harness and the wires are color coded so you don't have to cut and splice your wires on your factory harness.The harness hooks to your factory plug and you wire it to your pioneer stereo wires. Harness is about 7.99 up at most stores.

My 00 dodge avengers new cd player is not working with my system


There should be a wire in the factory harness that turns on the infinity amps. If you used an aftermarket adaptor harness it should have a blue or a blue white wire in it, or both. When this wire, or wires receive 12V, the factory amp will turn on. this will need to be hooked to the aftermarket stereos blue wire.

I dont know how to wire it to my car stereo wires


Do yourself a favor and run to audio store or even autoparts store & get an adapter plug/harness, cost is a few bucks but well worth it. It plugs into factory harness & you wire your new stereo to it according to diagram with new system.
