If you can help me i need to know if it is possible to wire a amp into a 2002 landcrusier stock headunit cheers


yes, there is an amp turn-on wire from the head unit (black with a red stripe). You will need to add a power wire and fuse from the fuse box to run the amp. You can use the speaker outputs as inputs to the amp, depending on what you are trying to do. Please let me know if you need more help, and identify the amp model as well as the speakers you will connect.

LED lights up but! ???


Sounds like there is a problem with the amp. Try switching the inputs around for that output on the amp. If that does not help, Yes I would have to say that there is a problem with the amp output circuit.

Just installed new front (Pioneer TS G4643R) and rear (Kicker KS4100) speakers in my 1989 S-10. The left front and rear speakers work great but the right ones are not so good. At low volume they both have...


It sounds to me like your wiring is having problems. An easy way to tell would be to switch your speakers around. Take the ones on the left that you know work, and place them on the right side. If you have the same problem, then that tells you the wiring is having problems. Another problem could be that the speakers are wired out of phase. What that means is that the positive of the speaker is connected to the negative of the radio or amp, and that the negative is wired to the positive of the amp. Do you have an external amp? Try switching them around, and let me know how that works for you.

I have a BMW 318i 1993 and when i got it there was a big speaker and amp hooked up. I unhooked it but now i cant get any sound....the radio lites up but no sound. i know speakers work cuz they worked...


Hello pinkpimpin20,

Without knowing exactly what modifications were made to the factory sound system, it's difficult to point you to a particular fix. The number of channels on the "big amp" that you disconnected would help. Even the make and model.

But, from your description it's possible that the previous owner installed a multichannel amp to drive both the "extra bass speaker", usually referred to as a subwoofer, and the original vehicle speakers. In that case, the speaker wiring from the head unit (receiver) was cut and the receiver side of the wires was rerouted to the input of the aftermarket amp. The output of the amp was then connected to the other ends of the speaker wiring.

To restore to the original, you need to pull the stock receiver and resplice the wiring. If the previous owner cut the plug completely, it may be necessary to purchase a replacement from your BMW dealers service or parts department. It's possible, but not likely that the previous owner used both an aftermarket "harness" and an aftermarket "reverse harness" to avoid having to cut the wiring. In that case, all you'd have to do would be remove them and plug the radio harness back into the vehicle harness (or the back of the radio). But most DIY audio enthusists don't mind butchering the vehicle wiring. And you'll probably find that electrical tape was used to secure the wiring. After a year or so under the dash, it'll be a sticky mess to unravel.

The speaker wiring colors for the '93 318i are as follows:

Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Yellow/Red
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Brown/Orange
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Black/Red
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Brown/Orange
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Yellow/Black
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Black/Orange
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Blue/Black
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): Brown/Orange

Hope this helps.
