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

I have a 2001 yukon and am wanting to change out the radio. Is the radio going to need any extra parts due to anti theft security?


Depending on what radio you install you will need an installation kit so you can plug in your OEM wiring and not have to splice and decipher factory wiring. Check with Best Buy or Crutchfields' (online)

YUKON CD PLAYER NO SOUND!


Is your IP Bus cable on the INPUT and not the OUTPUT ? I know it sounds funny, but usually(95%), that's the case. If it's in the wrong plug, you'll have power and a display, but no audio. That's why your getting data but no audio.

Conection


to install this unit in your car........as a beginner i would strongly recommend buying a aftermarket radio harness (this harness will attach to the wire plug in your factory deck simply unhook the factory player and attach this harness to the plug you just pulled out of the factory unit) once this harness is installed on the factory plug it will be a simple colour match (just attach wires to pioneer wires IE. red - red, white - white........once all the wires are attached install in dash recommend buying a mounting unit for this net part it will hold the deck in place in your dash...........after that is done install your pioneer unit push it in place apply power by turning car on..........pioneer deck should turn on and work if it does not turn right on look for a source button on the pioneer unit and hold it down till the unit turns on
good luck
hope i was able to help

Check to see if the power steering pump is still turning. If you have a broken drive belt (serpentine belt or "fan" belt), and the pump doesn't turn, you have no power assist. If the pump is still turning, check the fluid level in the reservoir.
