Question about 1995-1997 Chevy Suburban Ignition Starter Alarm switch

Installing a new radio

I removed my stocked radio, from my 2001 Suburban, and connected the power connects and the radio turns. But the rest of the wires color code doesn't match the manual. I may have messed things up by removing the wire harness.
I know the radio works because I connected the radio speaker wires to a small house speaker and I got sound, but when I connect the radio speaker wires the the car I get no sound.
The wires I have left are:
2- light freen
2-dark green
Can anyone help me out, I would extremely appreciate it. Thanks

First of all u need a test light hook one end to ground check for positive power with the other end of the test light. One of the wires comming from the vehicle will show power with ignition on and light switch on this is dimmer wire for speaker location get a nine volt battery put two wires to it {not your power or ground wires} you should hear a buzzing noise this would tell you speaker location .

Radio anti-theft code

see dealer if stock, if not stock., contact the maker of the RADIO.
most radios are set to no code. (new)
if PO (prev.owner or kids) set it. then you must guess it.
there is no secret bypass. (not public,) RTM it says just that.
if you could bypass it, radio thefts would skyrocket.
At some dealers, they do have a fix but you just show up with registration in and match your drivers license. or no dice.

Check the connections at your battery and alternator. Make sure the battery posts are tight. Check the chassis ground connection for the battery.
You failed to mention the reason for replacing the light assembly but, I would check the harnesses for damage and continuity.

Disarming chapman vehicle alarm system on 94 chrysler new yorker

If you have removed the brain, I don't see why you need to remove the rest, unless you just want it out of the car. Without the brain the wiring should cause no problems to your car unless there is a bad connection. If you need more info on how to remove the remaining alarm---
remove the siren in the engine compartment. Most everything else will probably be found under dash drivers side. If it has been installed with connectors, remove them at point of connection. If solderd cut at point of connection and use electrical tape to cover exposed wire. You will have one wire connected to the dome light circuit, one to the parking lights, one to a relay to disable the starter. Cut it out and reconnect starter wire. Led, a switch, maybe a button also-not hard but maybe not necessary?

Ran battery down. Installing new battery. When

You didn't say whether this was a factory or an aftermarket security system. Factory systems can usually be reset by using the key in the driver's side door, and turning key to "lock" then "unlock". An aftermarket system may benefit from having the ignition key in the "ON" or "RUN" position.
