You need details, make model, car, etc.etc. I can give you a response with out that info, but it would be like this.
"hook up radio to power and sound, ground it, raido works"
doesn't help huh.
What have you done, tried, what were your results.?

Can I wire my new radio to the factory radio harness if I cut it


You would need the wiring schematics to both radios to ensure you are wiring the right leads from one radio to the other...or else you could end up damaging the receiver and/or the amp.

Cant find a harness to plug into the back of a Dual XD250 RADIO.


You won't ever. They make a universal harness. You should have a wire harness for your new radio only that was included with the radio. It should plug into the new radio and the other end will just be wires. Then you will need to go to a parts store, ( AutoZone, Oreilly's, Advance Auto, Etc) and but a radio wire harness for your truck. It will have a connector or two that plug into the harness that plugs into the back of your stock radio and the other end will be just wires. you will then connect the two harnesses together by matching wire color. ( EG: Purple to Purple, Gray with black stripe to Gray with black stripe, etc)

I was installing an after market Pioneer CD Player into a 1993 Suzuki Swift. I installed it with all the right wiring and everything was working fine with the stereo. Once I turned the headlights on, that...


The adapter harness for the radio is probably not wired correctly. I'll bet you also have no tail lights. You probably wired the harness so that the illumination circuit for the factory radio is wired to the wrong terminal of the new radio, thus the problem occuring when you turned on the headlamp switch. I have seen this many times when someone is trying to wire a radio adapter harness without having access to the factory wiring harness diagrams for the vehicle...the wire colors on the adapter harnesses don't allways match the wire colors of the factory harnesses. You need to know which wire is which and wire the correct wires together regardless of what color they may be. If you wired it simply by the wire colors, it most likely is not correct.
If you are lucky, it only blew the fuse for the tail/dash lamps. It is possible that you now have some serious vehicle wiring harness damage caused by the short circuit that was created.
I would disconnect the new radio and get the car fixed first. Then you need to find out which of the wires in the factory harness is for the illumination circuit and make sure that nothing is connected to it on the adapter harness. Most aftermarket radio/stereo systems do not use this circuit at all.

Wiring my jvc kd-g331 to a 1996 vauxhall corsa


You can go to a place that installs car stereos and purchase a universal wiring harness for your car that will cost about $15 and allow you to do the wiring very easy without the need to know what every wire is for. This harness would be wired to the harness you got from JVC for your new radio and all you need to do is to match the colors of the JVC harness to the same colors of the universal harness that would then just plug right into the factory wiring harness for your car and then the other end plugs into the connector for your JVC radio. It is very easy and insures that you have all the proper wires connected to operate your radio and have full functions available for use.

If you require to know what each wire from the JVC harness is for, just ask.

I would be happy to offer you more help if you need it, just reply to this post and I will get back to you as soon as I am able.

If you found this free information to be useful a FixYa! rating would be appropiate and very much appreciated. After all, it is the only reward we get for helping people like yourself for free.

Thanks and good luck with your radio installation,

Dave
