I have a 1998 Toyota Camry...Trying to hook up an Alpine...Need to know what wires to connect to the alpine.Car Wires are same with grey spots.....

From what I can tell you cut the wires to your factory wiring harness and that is what you want to hook up to. My advice is to reconnect the factory harness and buy the adapter harness for your car and use that to hook up to the alpine it will save you hours and possibly your sanity. If you want to hook up directly to your car without the adapter you will need to figure out what wires are the power ignition and ground with a multimeter or power light. Easiest way to find ground is to just put in a ground wire with in a foot or so from the deck. Then it's just a guess and check for the correct placement of power. I suggest turning the power placement on the deck to what speaker you want and repeat for all speakers until your finished. Or you can buy a Chiltons or Haynes manual the should have a wiring diagram

My KDC W-3044 is shown Protect. what should i do???

If it is in protect mode then you have a short in your system. A blown speaker will cause it to go into protect mode, also if there are any power supply problems like a loose ground wire or a sketchy connection at the wiring harness it will also trip. My advice is pull the deck check power supply and ground and wiring harness, if it doesnt go away you know its the speakers.It may however need to reset and you will need to unplug the wire bundle from the deck for a moment before getting into the messing with the speakers or wires. Hopefully that cures it so test it and see. Okay if that didnt fix it then you likely have a blown speaker somewhere in the vehicle so get that replaced and rock on.

I cannot match up the wires from my clarion DB265MP head to the wires from my 99 honda accord lx. when i ground the head and touch the main power line to the battery terminal, it works though. what gives?

you need to buy the wiring harness that is for your car then you can just hook the harness to your deck and plug it in to the car,unless your wires in your dash are all cut up,in that case you need a tester light.ground the light on somthing and look for the wire that lights up when the car is turned off,this is your battery back-up it goes to yellow on the deck,next look for a wire that has power with your ihgnition and loses power when ignition is off,this one goes to the red on the deck,look for a ground they are usually black but test it for power cause that would blow your fuse,or make your own by drilling a hole somewhere in the chassis and attach to black wire on deck,as for speakers you will prob need to remove front speakers,look at the colors and these are the same as colors youll see where deck is,then check back speaker wire colorwhich also runs to your dash

Hello clarky909,

On your Alero, the 12V constant wire is ORANGE and should connect to the YELLOW wire coming from the DEH-2300 wiring harness. 12V switched on your Alero is YELLOW and should be connected to RED coming from the DEH-2300.

Hope this helps.

Chrysler Part No. P56038933AB Radio Wire Color code

1982 to 2001 wiring harness color code Chrysler.

12V constant pink or pink/white stripe
12V accessory red/white stripe
Antenna/Amp turn on white
12V Illumination black/yellow stripe
Left front + dark green
Left front - brown/red stripe
Right front + purple
Right front - blue/red stripe
Left rear + brown/blue stripe
Left rear - brown/yellow stripe
Right rear + blue/ orange stripe
Right rear - blue/white stripe

there is no ground wire in the harness, the metal braided strap is the ground.
use a ring terminal,speed clip, and screw to attach the ground wire from new radio
when replacing infinity radios and speakers, there are 4 wires instead of 2 at the speaker plug. the large gauge blue and black wires are the power supply for the amp, the other 2 are signal wires from the deck and will match up to the wire color codes above. simply cap off the power and ground and use the other 2 for speaker leads.

One thing i hate to see is someone who just hacks off the plugs behind the radio because they are too cheap/lazy/dumb to buy a wire harness adapter for the nice new aftermarket deck they just bought. ive seen everything from masking tape to house wire nuts used to connect wires, and they never last.
there is only 1 reliable permanent way to connect wires together - SOLDER AND SHRINK WRAP!!! whether you're connecting wiring for a radio, fog lights,repairing a cut wire, etc solder those wires, you'll be glad you did when you never have a problem with that circuit again.

This is a listing for part #'s for dash kits wire harness adapters
all part numbers are metra unless otherwise noted
dash kit 99-6700, 99-6701 and 99-6500 will work for most cars
wire harness adapter 70-1817
reverse harness( to replace factory plug that have been cut off) 71-1817
speaker adapter plugs 72-6510, non amped 72-6513 when equiped w infinity system and bypassing fact amps

no antenna adapters are required until you hit 2002 model year.
beginning in 2005 chrysler switched to a high speed LAN system in all its cars and trucks. there is no longer a switched ignition lead in the harness.
Good Luck
