Question about Jensen CD4610 CD Player

1 Answer

Car radio I installed a aftermarket radio in my 91 dakota. I didn't buy a wiring harness and wired it straight. One problem though. Had an extra orange wire that works the dash lights that was in the original wiring harness. What can I hook it to, to make my dash lights work? Tried hooking with the switch wire for the radio and it blew the fuse for my tail lights.

1997dodge Dakota stereo install pioneerDEH-2300ub

Pretty straight forward, just get a wiring harness from ebay, amazon, best buy, autozone, or any stereo place. It's a 2 part harness, one is black and one is grey, just like the ones in your truck already. Connect the wires from the radio to the wires on the harnesses. Soldering is best, crimp on connectors or small wire nuts are good enough, or even just taped up if you are good at twisting wires in a way they won't come apart. Tape them up good. Then just snap the harnesses into place with their corresponding colored harness in the vehicle and you're ready to go. No need for an antenna adapter in these. And you will want a plastic mounting kit so it's not just sliding around in the void. Only 2 bolts/screws will be used to hold in this bracket the top right facing up and bottom left facing left. The plastic mounting kits are like 10-20 bucks. If you get a universal, just snap off all the extra tabs you don't need. It's self explanatory once you look at it and see how it goes into the truck. If you need more help let me know and I'll post some pictures. I have a 97 and a 99 sitting out in my yard.

05 grand what do i need to install a aftermarket radio

Get a wiring harness adapter kit (about $10) from a stereo shop. It has harness plugs that will plug directly into your harnesses in the dash, and has color-coded wires that you will color-match to the wires on the aftermarket deck's harness. You may need an antenna adapter as well. If your stock stereo face is taller than the aftermarket one, you'll need a dashboard adapter kit to take up the extra space.

What color is what when installing a car stereo in a 91 Grand Marquis?

you can go to your nearst car audio shop and buy a harness that will plug into your factory plug, which will allow you to wire directly into it with your aftermarket radio harness which is color coded to match. the reason i recommend this is b/c some of the marquis are factory amplified. although i have included some wiring info for your car, be sure to test all wires with a digital meter first.

Broken wire in wire harness clip

i'm not sure what part is broken from your description but i will try to help...

you can purchase something called a reverse harness that looks identical to your vehicle's OEM harness that plugs into the factory radio. the only difference will be the wiring color on the new harness will be standard aftermarket wiring (ie 12volt yellow, ign red, ground black, etc.) and if you cut each wire from the OEM harness and solder it to the reverse harness location for location then the new harness will be good to go. i would personally do this as a single wire at a time so you are not staring at 16 cut wires going to the new harness. check at Best Buy and see if they carry the 71-1770 Metra wiring harness and that will be the one you need as the reverse harness and if you are installing an aftermarket radio get the 70-1770 also. if you aren't comfortable with all this your local installers should be able to do this job for you pretty reasonably.

Installing newer radio in older truck

Hello zachary_reed,

What you need is an aftermarket wiring harness. These are made by Metra, Scosche, and others and are made to plug directly into the OEM radio harness. It appears that the one you want is the Scosche FB02B available from SonicElectronix. You simply connect the wires from your new receiver to the harness wires and then plug it into the factory radio plug. Another online retailer that sells aftermarket harnesses is Your local car audio shop or perhaps Best Buy may also have the wiring harness.

Be sure to match up the wires from your new radio harness to the aftermarket harness by FUNCTION, not by color. For example, most newer receivers will use Yellow as the 12V constant (hot) wire. The wiring color code for your F150 is shown here. Make sure that the pin on the aftermarket harness is connecting the yellow from your new receiver to the green/yellow of the OEM plug and so on.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I am installing a new head unit into my dads 98' Buick LeSabre and the factory harness has been cut and I'm not sure of the color code and not sure how to run the extras thru the new head unit and how...

Metra makes wire harnesses for your problem. If your wire harness is, 70-5555 the part that goes into the OEM radio will be 71-5555
Try and put in the car info. The harness will come with wire codes for splicing the new plug.
