Three ways to do this -- either you have to find out what the wires in your dash actually do, by consulting a manual. Or, you have to do trial and error - find the hot and accessory wires with a light or voltmeter, then guess the rest until it works.

Third, and what I've been doing the past few years, is to go to your favorite electronics store and get an adapter harness. It will plug right into your dash wiring and you won't have to do any crimping, soldering, or twisting.

I got a car stero with a cd player, the one I am taking out was


THe speaker wires from "new" radio will be in pairs ie;GREEN/ RED/ GREY / , They look like they are the same color but you will find a "tracer color" on one of the paired wires, ie plain GREEN / GREEN with a thin black stripe etc. The single Red will be Battery power the Orange will be Ign / accessory for the radio station memory. the other wires will vary but should be (possibly) panel illum/ power antenna/ aux power and ground wire . The radio will ground off the antenna connection .but should be connected at a later time . good luck .

No sound.


The first thing you need to do is doublechecking all the new wirings, it sounds like a contact.

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.

After market cd player to go into holden jackaroo


Best advice, go down to Target or Wal-Mart and purchase a wire harness kit for your vehicle. Splice it to the wires on the deck. If the deck is aftermarket it should be all color matching. Then once that is done all you do it plug it in just like the factory radio did.

I have a 1988 chevy astr van and need to know how


The easiest way is to purchase an installation kit that is matched to your vehicle, and comes with a pigtail plug that inserts directly in to your existing radio connector, and the pigtail wires match up color for color to your new unit

Radio connection Pioneer vs Subaru Forester


I would like to refer you to a reputable car audio dealer.

If you have NOT yet CUT THE FACTORY HARNESS, DON'T!!!!!!!
Airbags are nothing to take lightly...

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a wiring harness adapter from a reputable source such as METRA, Scoche, or Pozitive Connections. Every wiring harness adapter changes the colors at the "pioneer side" of the harness to color match the PIONEER RADIO. All you have to do is color match, plug and play.

HOPE I HAVE HELPED.
