Installing a DVD player in place of a Cassette deck

I am trying to install a DVD player in a GMC 2001 Yukon XL. I want to hard wire the audio through the factory stereo. I want to remove the remote cassette deck and install the DVD player in that spot and use the factory wiring to power and run the audio. I have pretty much figured out the wiring and have a couple of problems. First their is a pink wire that must tell the main stereo that the cassette deck has a tape in and is running, if this wire is cut the main stereo dosn't reconise the cassette deck. the second problem is that the purple with white stripe runs the left channel and the green with white stripe runs the right channel. I assume that these are the + side. But is the ground to the 2 channels the black chassis ground? here is the wires in order and what I can figure out that they do.
Orange-constant power
Dark Green-no change when disconnected
Black-Negative power ground
Black with white stripe- no change when disconnected
Purple with white stripe-Left channel
Green with white stripe-Right channel
Black lose covered wire-no change when disconnected
Grey-no change when disconnected
Pink- tells stereo that cassette deck is running, stereo goes to radio if this wire is disconnected.
I checked these by cutting wires while a cassette tape was playing.
The car has a built in TV connected to a VCR. The VCR is dead and if I run the video and audio through the imputs on the VCR I only have wireless audio by way of headphones or a FM reciver through the stereo. Either way it has a high piched squeal and poor quality. I am using a pyle PLDVD-132 mostly because it is very small and will fit the cassette spot with slight modifcation.
I am very sorry about my spelling, it has never been a strong suit of mine.

    I am not trying to replace the entire radio. The cassette deck is a seprate unit but it is factory installed. I would be more than tickeled to purchase an aftermarket harness for $17 but where? I don't belive that on acualy exhists. I have pluged the RCA plugs into the RCA plugs of the VCR with a male to male adapter but this only makes a wireless audio conection there is no speaker system with the TV it only works through an FM converter or wireless headphones. This is why I want to hard wire the audio to the factory stereo.

Be careful guessing the wires you can buy a wire harness for this SUV and all wires are colour coded to your after market radio or DVD in-dash system all you do is match the colours........for your VHS player there should be two output RCA on the VCR unit run the RCA wires to your new in-dash unit plug it into the aux input of your new unit that will solve the whine (some gm models high-end mainly have security features built in to the factory radios this can cause airbags to deploy if wires get crossed wrong) buy a wire harness for $17.00 to avoid any costly problems
hope this helped

Can not find out how to put in aftermarkit cd player in a 1991 chevy z71 and have the kits and still cant do it


Need some more info. Is your unit the small square tuner at the top of the dash next to the gearshift and the cassette in the center of the dash below the AC?. If so, you need to install the deck in the center below the AC. To make it very easy use the adapter harnesses as well, that way 80% of the installation can be done at the kitchen table. Wire the harness kit to the new decks harness, mount the deck in the kit, then put the antenna adapter on your new unit. In your truck, that whole center AC area pops off then it's 4 screws and the cassette is out. Same for the Tuner piece. The factory antenna wire is right behind the cassette deck. Pull it back, plug it in, test your speakers, snap it back in the dash, replace the tuner part with a pocket and your good to go. Total time hour to 2 hours for a novice. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you step by step. Hope this helps

Installed sony stereo in 2001 dodge ram


are you running an amplifier off the deck? it may be that you are turning the amplifier on with the power antenna wire instead of the amp turn on lead. so when you go from tuner to cd the amp turns off.

Mounting CD player correctly.


you could try to see if the store that you bought it from has a faceplate or converter to hold it in place

(I have a 94 Buick Century, they don't make the model of cd player standard for that vehicle anymore.)

'99 Mercurary Tracer cassette player problems...


The cassette adapters are notorious for getting stuck in the deck. More often than not its the wire that comes out of it that causes it. The cleanest and safest way to remove the cassette adapter is to remove the radio, take off the top and "Help" it eject with your fingers or some narrow tool that may get behind it to push it forward and out. If you dont want to take the deck out of the dash, you can try pushing the eject button while manipulating the adapter wire, but I dont recommend it. Its just better to take the deck out. Good Luck
