Just installed a JVC KD-S16 radio into a 2001 kia spectra. Everytime the car is turned off the radio stations reset and so does the clock in the car. I used the wire harness. But I think it has something...

There is a constant power wire and a power wire that is actuated when you turn the car on. sounds like you may have them reversed.
You can check the pamphlet that came with your radio to see what the Jvc color code is for your hot's.
Double check them with the wire color code on the harness.

Need color codes for new radio to 99 nissan sentra

Hello jmartinatl,

The color codes for your receiver is here.

Just match the function of each wire the the appropriate wire on your vehicle. Or better yet, purchase a vehicle specific aftermarket wiring harness that plugs into the vehicle wiring.

Hope this helps.

What do the colored wires mean i am installing

It is what do they call color coding . Like example white goes to red wire or blue connect to orange . In radio ,the positive charge connect to the positive and the negative negative connect to the negative, there is a wire that should be connected to the ground and the wire that should be connected to the battery.

I am having trouble trying to install a stereo to my 1994 lincoln town car because i dont now the color code to the radio harnes so i can install it

Best thing to do is purchase a Radio Wiring Harness. These can be purchased at a Store like Circuit City, Best Buy, WalMart (not sure of your location) or a 12 Volt Specialty shop.

This harness will connect to your new radio harness and plug directly into the vehicle harness without having to cut wires. The Radio Wiring Harness will come with color identification to match to your radio harness.
