If this model has an amplified system, then you may need a different wiring harness. The harness you purchased may be for the non amplified model. Try that, and let us know.

I need to know the breakdown for the wiring in the 1999 toyota ca


SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE RUNNING THE POWER FEED FROM THE CAR THAT SUPPLYS THE FEED FOR LIGHTS OF THE FACTORY RADIO DOWN TO EARTH, IF YOU GET A VOLT METER AND TEST ALL THE FEEDS WHEN YOU SWITCH THE LIGHTS ON AND OFF, THIS SHOULD TELL YOU WHICH ONE, AS FOR THE RESTyou will need a volt meter and a 9v battery,
test all wires with meter to find a live with the ign switched off, ths is the live memory feed
the try again with the ign on, this is the switched live
there will be an earth/ground
light feed when you power the lights on.
when you do that to find the speakers
take a pair of remaining wires and place them on the 9v battery, work through the wires til you here a speeaker crakle, then continue till you find all speaker, that will allow you to hook up to a aftermarket unit,
or if you can get to a scrap car of the same year and type, cut the harness out and match up the wires
if the dash lights go on when you attach the 9v that will also tel you the dash feed is one of the 2

2002 malibu wiring diagram?!?!?!?!?!?!


ok, the red and yellow wires serve 2 different purposes.the yellow supplies constant power to your stereo, and the red is switched power. what youve done is combine the two, and connect them to a constant power source. like this, your stereo wont be switched with your ignition. so take off the red wire, but leave the yellow wire connected to the wire its already on. make sure your stereo fuse is good in the fusebox of the car. then, use a test light, with the ignition switch on, to find the second wire on your cars harness that has power. that will be your switched power. connect that one to your red wire, and that will solve your problem.

are you using and after market harness to go from your bronco to the harness to the new radio. if so make sure all the colors are matched up (e.i. purple to purple, purple/black to purple/black). did the speakers work before the aftermarket unit. Also check the wiring at the oem speakers
