Have delco radio head unit model #1618995. has 7 wire plug 2 white wires on end one on end has small plug where do plug it too? has power checked with meter


Hi Steve,
I'm going to need a little more information. That looks like the serial number. I can't find any info on #1618995. What kind of car did it come out of? Sounds like some kind of Chevy. Is it an aftermarket radio? Delco is a bad choice, unless your replacing your radio with an other factory radio. What kind of car are you putting it in?
Let me know if your just trying to put an aftermarket stereo in, radio kits and wiring harnesses are available for most cars. Ray

Should i have any spare wires when hooking up an after market car stereo


Yes, It's a very good possibility that you will have a few wires left over. Normally a wire for an aftermarket amp to be triggered on when you turn your radio on and possibly a power antenna or a dimming function that dims your radio lights when your headlights are on. It of course always depends on if you have a power antenna or not, or if you have an aftermarket amp or not or if you have the dimming feature on your car or not. These wires don't apply to everyone.
You will just match the colors between the wiring harness that came with the DUAL radio and the interface adapter that goes to your car. Make sure you use **** style crimp connectors. If not the wires could come loose or cause a popping noise or cause the radio to turn off while driving.
Other than that, installing an aftermarket radio is mostly matching the colors up between the two harnesses and crimping the wires together.3_6_2012_2_31_36_am.jpg

How to connect aftermarket radio into 2002 toyota camry JBL radio (the standart wiring doesn't work).Thanks


Your aftermarket radio should have color-coded wires which identifies power, ground, speakers, etc. most depaetment stores carry a radio harness adapter kit. This will connect to your radio's exact color coded wires, and will plug right in to your factory's wiring plug. And don't forget electrical tape.

Need to know how to install my deck in my 1999 chevy suburban


The best way to install an aftermarket stereo is to go to a stereo installation store and get the in dash "metra" kit and the wiring harness adapter that allows you to connect the aftermarket stereo wiring to the factory wiring on the truck...the "metra" kit adapts the aftermarket radio to fit into the space for your particualar vehicle..the tech at the stereo store will know what all this means if they know what they are doing...To clarify, "metra" is a brand name for these kits andthey also go by the name scoshe...

Installed new CD deck in 07 Corolla, may have shorted something


first check the illumation fuse which to toyota its the panel fuse, check if it is blown. if not take the aftermarket wire harness u wired in with the radio harness and disconnect the orange wire (illumation wire) and see if u have lights again. sometimes the aftermarket orange wire won't work with toyota vehicles. good luck

You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.

If not....

Car Radio memory Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: The radio harness does not provide a switched power source. Run a wire to the fusebox for switched power.
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black/White
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue

Good luck

Illumination v. Dimmer


Good day,

The illum wire goes directly to the headlight switch and tells it when to light up, where as the dimmer wire is variable meaning it would dim up or down with your dash light control. Dimmmer is usually only need on factory radio's and not aftermarket. I suggest wiring only to the illuum lead and do not connect dim. Also about the clock make sure your red and yellow wires are not crossed, yellow is a constant hot and red is only hot when the ignition is on, so if they are backwards the radio would loose it's memory when you turn the key off.

Hope this helps
