I have a 1998 saturn and i put in a new stereo all wires are connected and working fine but the power antennae isnt hooked up neither is the orange illumination wire when i hooked the illumination wire to...

Hi, not sure what model you have, but you can get the factory wire colors here:
page down to select your model.

It sounds like you tapped into the brake light wire rather than the illumination wire. Also, there should be an antenna wire in the car if you have a retractable antenna. Did you purchase a GM connector with the new steroe to wire it in?

How do i hook up my parking brake wire on my xdvd710

The yellow/blue wire out the back of the head unit needs to be hooked up to the same wire that is responsible for illuminating the "BRAKE" light on your dash. This tells the DVD player that the car is not in motion. Where this wire is and how to tap into it is entirely dependent on what kind of car you have. You may need to trace the wire out or consult a wiring diagram.

If you wish to bypass this feature (which may be illegal in some states) try this:

** Insert a DVD
** Let it play until you hear sound
** Press STOP twice on remote
** Enter 26604
** Press ENTER

What to hook the dimmer wire & illumination wire to

Those lower end Sony models dont use a dimmer or illumination. The display is constantly one brightness level.
Simply terminate or tape off those wires from the plug.

Illumination v. Dimmer

Good day,

The illum wire goes directly to the headlight switch and tells it when to light up, where as the dimmer wire is variable meaning it would dim up or down with your dash light control. Dimmmer is usually only need on factory radio's and not aftermarket. I suggest wiring only to the illuum lead and do not connect dim. Also about the clock make sure your red and yellow wires are not crossed, yellow is a constant hot and red is only hot when the ignition is on, so if they are backwards the radio would loose it's memory when you turn the key off.

Hope this helps
