Hello,
The best thing you can do for your situation is to get a vehicle wiring diagram for your particular vehicle. This can be done at the dealer or by buying a vehicle manual at the autoparts store that has the wiring diagrams in it. You can then see the wiring color coding. They also make a factory plug pigtail that you can plug into your existing radio harness and then wire it correctly to the new radio. The new radio should have the wiring layout included with its documentation, and some radios also have small marking tabs on the wire ends to tell you what they are for. Good Luck, RAC

My alpine ida x200 keeps skipping during songs


All you can really do is use a CD Player cleaner *one that uses fluid* run it thru a couple times and try a disc again. Clean your CD's with liquid car polish an a microfibre towel, it works wonders for new and old CD's. If it still skips, It needs to be pulled for repair. They just replace the transport, usually runs between 100-150 depending on the service center. Hope this helps.

Does the alternator on a 1993 Geo Prism need grounded?


IF THE WIRE THAT IS HANGING HAS A TERMINAL ON IT WITH A LOOP, THEN LOOK ON THE ALTERNATOR FOR A STUD THAT MAY ACCOMODATE THE WIRE'S LOOP. IF THE WIRE HAS A PLUG THEN LOOK FOR A CONNECTION ON THE BOTTOM OF THE ALTERNATOR. IF NOTHING IS ON THE END OF THE WIRE, THEN HEAD FOR AN AUTO PARTS STORE WHERE THEY WILL HAVE THE APPROPRIATE PLUG OR WIRE CONNECTOR FOR YOUR VEHICLE. HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING.

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

Installing the Alpine IDA-X200


So it is powering up? On your actual deck will be a picture of the schematics of the wiring. With the system powered up, assuming you taped up the power wires, strip the front left wires coming from the deck and use them as your tester. You now know forsure they are for the front left so as you go through your cars audio wires you will find which wires are for which speakers around your car. Label them as you test them. Hope that helps.
