You can buy adapters at most car accessory outlets that just plug into the existing wiring saving the need to chop wires.

My jvc stereo will not power up but have found the black wire is live ?


hi peter, before you start using the rest of the harness cables find out if the harness you have is a jvc original for your model. the black wire is the ground/chassis cable only for a jvc kd-r411. you mite be using a compatible fitting harness whose " wire colour configuration" is incorrect for your model. cheers.

Red,yellow and blue with stripe hooks to what into harness


some decks have a solid blue for power antenna and blue with white stripe for amp turn on. if you have neither a power antenna or amplifier, i would not worry about connecting those two wires. do makes sure they are capped off and have no bare wires showing, as they are hot when the stereo is turned on.

I do not know how to wire nenwood kdc-422 to a 94 buick century?


You should have a wire harness pigtail that comes with your kenwood.
you can also purchase a harness adapter plug/pigtail at most audio auto stereo shops to fit your car make and model.
Be sure to save the packaging because the plastic bag has the color/codes for the harness. This harness is designed to plug right into the factory plug inside the dash just like the stock radios do.
All you need to do is splice the kenwood cables to the adapter plug pigtail you purchase for your car.
match up each wire as described here:

Best and FASTEST WAY TO DO THIS:

Go to walmart or BB and buy a car adapter for your factory wiring (it will click onto the existing factory harness) THEN match the colors...you're good to go!

Instaling alpine car/cd stereo cda 9807


Its probably your wiring harness that came with the stereo. Which can cause many more problems. alpine changed their wiring harness around that time. But they used the same plug, just wired different. So now there are crossed wires, but the plug fits, causing the amp chip to fry. maybe even further than the amp chip. an amp chip replacement runs about 80$ at a repair shop. if its just that.
