I just bought a Durabrand 60 watt AM/FM Car CD Player (DB1215). I took out a factory radio of a 1991 Honda Accord. The wiring connection for the Accord is still in place and has 14 wires in the plastic casing. The casing for the new Durabrand is much smaller than the one in the Accord. Do I need to cut the wires the the plastic casing from the old and then re-wire the new system? The wires on the new system have different colors than the ones from the old???

I would say you should consider trashing the cassette because no one rocks that anymore and go get a cd player from walmart for $70 or so..... sorry if seems rude but cassettes are out dated and a new cassette player is only like $50 at walmart
red-power(keyed), yellow-power(constant), Black-ground, Blue-remote(usually to amp), this is the basics to get power to the radio. The rest(white/white-black, green/green-black, gray/gray-black...are for speakers)
The harness looks like what is depicted on this link: http://cgi.ebay.com/JVC--16-PIN-WIRE-HARNESS-FOR-CD-PLAYER-BLACK-BRAND-NEW_W0QQitemZ370214069143QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20090612?IMSfp=TL090612198008r8862 This
connector fits the following JVC Car Radio/CD/MP3 Players with
16 pin connection.
All wires are labeled. Hope this helps....................sodeep
the easy way is to buy a 5$ harness from pepboys or a auto stereo store ask them a harness for your make and model car to hook up a after market radio that harness will plug into your factory harness also the new harness will give you a wire diagram telling you what wires are what if you dont know about what wires are what on your after market radio they are sometimes listed on the top of the radio its real easy most radios are red power yellow aux -only power when ignition is on and black ground speakers are most of the time one color for all negitive and multi colored for positive good luck I hope this helps good luck....
Sounds like you may have shorted the ignition lead, normally red). Also some radio manufacturers use a cheap fuse holder on thier radio harness so check the fuse holder and the fuse. Then check the radio fuse in the fuse block of the car. Finally check the wire harness where it plugs into the radio (if applicable) a wire may have pulled out.
Make sure all connections you made are insulated.
I have a 93 accord ex with the bose amp system. Had a Sony deck put in it. It had the popping and the noises. It was installed at a store and they had to hook the red power wire to the antenna wire to get the sound to come out of the system when playing a CD. I thought that was bogus to have the antenna up all the time so I took it back out and put another quick hookup harness in it and it did the same thing. Will not put out any sound till the red power wire is hooked up to the antenna wire so that it goes up when the key is turned on. Installed the same stereo in a 94 taurus SHO with amp and it worked great. I believe that there is an expensive kit that converts the bose system to hook up a unit so that it doesn't pop click buzz, and have to have the antenna up to play.
