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.

How to install an aftermarket radio in a 2004 Chevy C2500

You will need a wiring harness for the model truck you have, plus a filler kit. The filler kit is what the radio will actually attach to and fill the space left by the factory radio. Follow the diagrams for wiring from the harness and the aftermarket radio. Generally, there are 8 wires to be connected for a four speaker system. In addition, you will connect a ground wire (black), a yellow wire (constant power), a red wire (this is to turn the radio on and off with the ignition), and a solid orange wire (illumination). Because you have a GM product you will also need an antenna adapter. All these things can be purchased at Best Buy, or WalMart.

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.

I am trying to connect a kenwood KDC-MP3035 to a 1997 Honda Passport but none of the wires match up, what do i do to make it work?

Hello oz101ez,

The wires have to be matched by function, not by color. Here is a link to the color code for the stock radio harness in your Passport. Connect whatever color wire your Kenwood manual says is for 12V + (usually yellow for most aftermarket receivers) to the "red/white" in your Passport. Connect the Kenwood accessory wire (usually red) to the brown/white wire in your passport. Just continue matching up each wire function and colors on both ends.

Best would be an aftermarket wiring harness vehicle specific for the Honda Passport/Isuzu Rodeo. The Metra 70-7712 seems to be the correct one for your vehicle. probably has the largest selection of wiring harnesses available anywhere. They'll even match the vehicle harness to an aftermarket receiver harness and connect them using solder and heat-shrink insulation if you desire.

Most local car audio shops will carry some wiring harnesses. Also retailers like Best Buy may have them, albeit at much inflated prices. Online car audio retailers like and have a good selection and their prices will probably be somewhere in between, lower than local but higher than

Hope this helps.

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.

Stereo turns off when headlights turned on

Sounds like you have the ground for the radio hooked up to the illumination ground wire. Check for orange or orange/black wire coming from the radio harness. Did you buy the harness for the car as well? If so then just match all the colors of wires from the car harness and the radio harness. By car harness I mean the harness that plugs into the harness that the original factory radio plugged in to.

You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.

If not....

Car Radio memory Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: The radio harness does not provide a switched power source. Run a wire to the fusebox for switched power.
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black/White
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue

Good luck

Chevy Tahoe radio wiring problems

I had the same problem and here's what fixed it. By default, I did not connect the blue/white striped remote wire to the harness. Apparently there is an amp somewhere in the vehicle I did not know about. After looking at the factory wiring and the aftermarket harness, I noticed that the remote wire was used and I connected it with the remote wire on the harness and everything came up and worked perfect.

The adapter for the radio

what kind of radio did you get-if it is a new aftermarket radio it would come with a plug that you must wire to the aftermarket wiring harness you bought then if you got the correct harness it should plug into the Car- Metra has the correct harness it is part #70-1770
