I would need further information: What most people do not realize is that a wiring harness is not a "one size fits all" thing. There are two harnesses that you may need.

To remove your factory car stereo and install a new aftermarket car stereo there are wiring harnesses for most cars that will plug right in to the wires from your old factory radio.
For that, you will need to buy the correct wiring harness for the year and make of your vehicle. Say, for example: 1987 Toyota.

Then there is a wiring harness for the specific car stereo. You will need the make and model number of the unit itself. Example: JVC model KD-AVX77.

Need wiring diagram fo 1994 nissan quest gxe premium stereo


A picture requires an installation, which is what you are doing. You should invest in a vehicle specific wiring harness. The wiring colors match for the connection and said harness then plug into the factory harness. If the factory harness no longer exists then you need the wiring diagram for the vehicle. You mention the vehicle has a premium stereo, the Metra part number is 70-5510. It's for an amplified system.

I need the wiring diagram for this sony car radio. trying to install it on a different vehicle thx


You don't need the wiring diagram, you need a wiring harness. They are only a few bucks and will save you a ton of time and the risk of frying your entire electrical system. The wiring harness will come with instructions. All radio wires are standardized. All you will need to do is crimp the appropriate colored wire to the matching wire on the harness. Then plug the harness into the vehicle. Hope this helps.

I need a color coding of the wiring for the harness i was given for my kenwood dpx308u. i just need to know which colors belong to which wires


Ok, you should have a wiring harness that plugs into the radio. That comes with the radio. You will need a wiring harness that is specific to your vehicle, this will plug into the vehicle harness. The wiring harness will have the correct colors to attach your radio to it. All aftermarket radios have standardized wiring. I recommend not attempting to hardwire your radio due to the risk of frying your entire electrical system. I hope this helps.

Installing after market stereo


Dave,

You will need to go buy a wiring harness adapter from your local Walmart (usually cheapest there) or Local Electronics place (ie Best Buy). The wire harness that goes out from the radio goes into the Adapter and the adapter plugs into the car harnesses. Also these Adapters come with the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. They typically run 10 - 15 bucks depending on where you get them. Thanks for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

Wiring/Installation of Pioneer CD Player


You need to get an installation kit that also has the universal wiring harness to connect to the factory harness in the car. That way you only need to match the wire colors of the Pioneer harness to the wire colors of the universal harness and made good connections and insulate those connections. Then the Pioneer harness plugs into the Pioneer radio and the universal harness plugs into the factory harness in the car.

Let me know if this helps, or if you need more help.
