Wiring problem for DEH 1430R

I have a vauxhall vectra, the radio had been removed prior to my buying the car. I have purchased a Pioneer DEH 1430R cd player/radio and the harness kit with 15 bare end wires. The car is an ex police vehicle and has about 30 wires taped up emerging from the radio cavity, can someone tell me which wires go to which on the harness please.

Re: wiring problem for DEH 1430R

I have to ask if you are willing to spend a little time with the 30 wire bundle? First of all you have to have a 12volt dc tester and a 9v dc battery. Take the tester and check each wire of the 30 wire bundle until you find one with 12 volt. Mark it and set aside. If you get more than one with voltage that is OK just mark them w/tape and make sure they get capped or taped as not to short anywhere. Now that you know which wires are HOT, lets move onto the others.If possible find out how many speakers are in the vehicle. Take the 9v battery and find small gauge wires in the bundle of 30 remove insullation on the wires about 1/2 inch touch one wire to one post on the battery and another to the other post (Just a tap, do not hold on too long) you will hear a speaker pop. Find out which it is front left, back right etc. and mark the pairs that make it pop. If possible to pull the speaker you can identify the wire colors from the speaker to see if they are in fact in the 30 wire bundle. After you locate your power and speakers the 15 wire harness should be easy to attach to the proper connections. Hope this gets you going.

I need to remove my Pioneer DEH-1100 from my 1996 Honda Civic. All I can figure out is how to remove the front panel, but I need remove the whole thing and put in a new one. Please help. Thank you.

hi afetr you have removed the front panel look on either side of the stereo there will be a slot on either side, you will need to purchase "radio keys" for the type of radio you have from a good auto store you can buy them off the shelf, you insert either key into the slots on the sides and then pulling them in slightly pull the radio at the same time ( if you just pull straight you will only pull the key's out so bend them in slightly as you pull ) it should come straight out of the security cage....hope this helped

Installation wiring diagram??

No need to guess what wires go where. Buy a wiring harness for your specific year, make and model.

You make connections from your pioneer harness which are all marked, to the Harness you will purchase for your car. They cost about $20 and can be purchased at most autopart stores, or major electronic retailers.

Once you make the connections from the pioneer harness to the harness specific for your car, simply unplug your factory radio and plug in your newly wired one.

Pioneer deh-2700 in 1995 chevy truck help.

your best bet is to buy an adapter harness.they are available at wal-mart as well as autoparts/car audio outlets. you will not have to cut anything. the adapter will plug into the factory harness and the wires from it are color coded the same as your pioneer radio. you can also buy them online here.
Hope this helps!
