If you had a "Bose" sound system - Factory installed - it should have and Amplified System - which means the original stereo will supply power to the Speaker Amps - that is the circuit that didn't get connected and why there is no sound.
I hope that resolves your issue
If you still have the original stock radio plugs it's best to buy a wiring harness that will connect to the factory plugs. Then the wires are all labled to hook up any cd or radio.It's called a stereo connector made by scosche check it out.
this is the year way before the radio color standards. so get it off the metro forum/ in google i type, "metro forum" no qoutes and see..... yah. or get it off mitchels or alldata dot com. or buy and FSM on fleabay.
There is an extra wire on the back that should be hooked up to the car for that function. If your car does not have this feature for the original factory stereo then you'll have to find some wire in the dashboard that comes on when you turn on the headlights. If you bought a car stereo adapter when you installed the new stereo to plug it directly into the factory plug then there should be a wire for this purpose. If you connected all the wires correctly then again, maybe the feature wasn't available on your car.
The original radio is a BOSE system and it has a buit in amp. So if you replaced the deck you need to replace the speakers all so. Don't cut the wires to hook-up the deck buy an addapter KIT. It's not just the stereo that runs though that harness the factory alarm does all so and that will cause you problems. Anyway back to the stereo you need to add an amplifier and problem sovled.
Its because u probably u have factor amps like my car that has infinity sound system I used the wire harness adapter that plugs into the factory harness u need to plug the wire that is alone and not in the factory plug into the power antenna/remote wire sould fix that issue
glad you posted what colors you do have , cause 2 resources didn't match ,actually 3 , i did find a match to your colors was a 97 year model premium radio, so we have a match .....
black/ light green = ground dark green = left front spkr + purple = right front spkr + blue/white = right rear spkr - brown/blue = left rear spkr - brown/yellow = left rear spkr + blue/orange = right rear spkr + black/yellow = park lamps brown/red = left front spkr - orange = dimmer signal pink = fused battery + green/red = radio choke relay red/white = fused ignition blue/red = right front spkr -
You may be connecting this stereo into an amplified system. If the original factory stereo worked with the factory amplifier, your stereo is not turning the amplifier on. If you purchased the aftermarket wire harness that mates to the factory stereo connector, hook up the "Amplifier Trigger" wire, this wire is usually blue.
What type of car is it? You can purchase speaker harnesses at any car audio shop that will allow you to snap into the factory plugs.
Also, beware if your system was designed for 8 ohm speakers - using 4ohm speakers instead could cause some problems. Most aftermarket stereos are designed for 4ohm speakers, but some factory stereos designed for 8ohms could be damaged if you give them a smaller ohm load.
