Hooking up kenwood cd player in a 2000 silverado but the wires aren't labeled coming out of the cd player. Pls help

If you use a wire harness adapter, you just have to match the colors from the Kenwood plug to the wires in the adapter. No guesswork.

Kenwood uses the CEA standard for car audio wiring:

Yellow: 12VDC constant power
Red: 12VDC key-switched power
Black: Ground
Orange/White: Illumination
Blue/White: Remote output for amp turn-on
Blue: Power antenna activation

White: Left front speaker (+)
Gray: Right front speaker (+)
Green: Left rear speaker (+)
Violet: Right rear speaker (+)

Each wire with a black stripe is a negative speaker output.

You can download owners' manuals from Kenwood's web site.

Messing with wires is not going to help. The CD player might be misaligned due to damage, or using a CD with a label, for instance. Or the laser lens could be dirty, and need to be swabbed with alcohol.
