Make sure you have proper voltage on both the red and yellow wires in the main wiring harness to the back of the radio. Car stereos have two 12-volt inputs. If only one is connected, you can get unexpected results. If you have voltage (12v+) on these two wires and the radio has ground, then unplug it and reconnect. If it still doesn't work, the radio is toast.
You won't ever. They make a universal harness. You should have a wire harness for your new radio only that was included with the radio. It should plug into the new radio and the other end will just be wires. Then you will need to go to a parts store, ( AutoZone, Oreilly's, Advance Auto, Etc) and but a radio wire harness for your truck. It will have a connector or two that plug into the harness that plugs into the back of your stock radio and the other end will be just wires. you will then connect the two harnesses together by matching wire color. ( EG: Purple to Purple, Gray with black stripe to Gray with black stripe, etc)
YES go to walmart and look at the dash Plastics inserts there marked with year make model and a SCOOSH wiring harness to plug in to ur old harness so u can connect the harness to ur Head unit wiring and color Cornated with What it is on the wires HOOK THAT SONA ***** UP looks nice
HOpe i helped bud i have the same unit in my 02 intrepid Se
The problem is that the dash opening in your Alero is only 6 3/8" in depth and the XDMR7710 is 7X7X2, which means that unless you cut into the vehicle firewall to make some room, 5/8" of the receiver will need to stick out the front of the dash.
Sounds like you have the Premium Sound system. The main power plug is long and probably black, the other plug is square with a grey round cord coming out correct?
You can either take your power harness back and get the correct one ( a little more expensive) or run ALL 4 sets of speaker wires back to the right rear quarter panel. That is were the OEM amp is mounted and taking that panel out requires you to remove the top and bottom tailgate trims, a dozen screws, the seat belt D-ring and 4-5 plastic push clips that will probably snap off...:( Also, this will not make the OEM subwoofer work.
From 20 years experiance in this biz, save the time, spend the extra 30$ or so and just buy the correct connector. Check MetraOnline.com and search there.
