Installed after market radio in my 2002 buick rendevous i get power to the radio but no sound


Why you buy a harness that is factory matched from Best Buy. Could be the speakers were power amped from the factory stereo and the after market is not powering them. Would call Best Buy to confirm it.

After Market Radio Installation


Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

What kind of wire do I need to install Infinity reference series 605cs with a JL Audio 10" sub and a Alpine Flex 2 amp? Can I use my factory head unit?


You can use the factory speaker wiring for the Infinity speakers you should purchase a amp kit which will give you everything to install the amp. See site below

Well that all depends on the current audio system you have now is it just a basic or a premium factory system with a factory amp. Honestly you would get a better and cleaner sound if you change the factory head unit to a after market one which has preamp feeds and the higher the preout volt the better. Just make sure it is compatible with the amp volts input (Example 4v to 250mv) If you use the factory headunit you would have to by a high to preout adapter it connects to the exsiting radios speaker leads, but like I said before change the head unit you won't be sorry. Do not forget if you change the radio you need a radio install kit and the wiring harrness which converts the two radio plugs so you don't cut them so down the road you can remove the after market radio and just replug the factory right back in.

I want to change my original cd player for a pioneer


This is because you need to purchase the aftermarket-oem harness plug.This harness plugs into your original equipment radio harness and allows you to plug any aftermarket radio into the stock deck wires.After you plug the harness in you can then connect the radio wires together.Your local autoparts store or circuit city or best buy or audio express will have these radio conversion plugs.I hope I could help

Factory radio main key to ignition switch


The factory radio has nothing to do with a car starting or not starting. You can install any radio that you like in your car as long as it was installed properly there will be no problem. The no start needs to be looked at but don't look at radio for cause. Would need more info on the no start to help there. You should take notes as to conditions when car won't start.

My cd changer, radio and amp are inter connected.the owners manuel say that if all are not hooked up system will not work. i install an after market radio but cant get the factory amp to come on


Hello moemoneymood,

Since you did not specify the make and model of your aftermarket radio, I cannot pinpoint specific connection problems. Most aftermarket receivers have a "remote turn-on" lead, probably blue, but sometimes blue/white, usually terminated with a spade lug. In addition to power and ground, the amp requires this lead to be connected in order to properly operate.

Start by checking the wiring from the old receiver wiring harness and see which wires and what colors went to the stock amp. Then connect the corresponding wires from your new receiver to the amp. Some OEM receiver/amp systems had power and ground taken from the same harness, so you may need to run those separately.

Alarm system stoped working on 87 caddy fleetwood


First question , is it a FACTORY alarm or an AFTER MARKET alarm. Regardless, I haven't met an alarm yet, that protects the radio.. My guess is, that if it is an aft/market alarm, inadvertantly placed the system in the "VALET" where it doesn'i work. Let me know if you disconnected battery, and are there alarm toggle switches.
