Question about Car Audio & Video
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.
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.
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

Check out this website
it is full of wiring diagram for vehicles.
did you happen to purchase the aftermarket wire harness that actually allows you to plug into the factory chassis harness? good luck let me know how you end up.
