I need a wiring diagram for a Mitsubishi Stereo DX-262AL. I want to replace it with a Clarion CD stereo, which I need to "marry" to the existing DX-262AL car loom. Any help much appreciated.


Hi there,

Option 1: If you haven't purchased any components yet.

If your Mitsubishi still has the original OEM (factory) wiring loom, then the newest method of connecting an aftermarket head unit (i.e. Clarion) is by using a 'snap-on' adaptor harness which eliminates the need for any cutting/joining/soldering.

The adaptor you want is the Mitsubishi-to-Clarion type: one end of the adaptor has the Mitsubishi (female) plug and the other has the Clarion (female) plug.

These adaptor looms can be purchased from most automotive accessory shops, or you can purchase very cheaply online from Ebay.

Check this link (this is the Clarion MAW2-16 adaptor for 1995-2004 Mitsubishi vehicles) @ USD $1 + $11 shipping (Note: the Year of your vehicle will determine which harness you require):

Option 2: the hard way

If you REALLY want to do it the hard way and start cutting wires, then here is the wiring colour codes:

EARLY MITSUBISHI AUDIO CONNECTORS:

LATER MITSUBISHI AUDIO CONNECTOR (SINGLE TYPE):

I trust this answers your question? :-)

your best bet is to buy a chiltons book for your car from an auto parts store. also i might add: reconnect your wires to the factory plugg you cut off and buy a wiring harness from a car stero installer or radio shack for your car it will automaticaly adapt your original harness (which your having trouble with) to a standard wiring setup for an aftermarket stereo. then its all about maching colors :)

You will need to hool up the blue and white wire will need to be connected to the amp turn on in the vehicle. Hopefully you are using an installation harness to make your job easier. The vehicle has a small amplifier in it. it does need to be turned on when you turn on the stereo.

Power to most radios is the red wire and ground is black. Do not mix up the two and make sure your plugs match "red for red" and "black to black" (the ground some times will also be green). If not you can blow a fuse in your box which you might need to check. If you have a meter you can check your car harness plug to see if you have 12 volts on your red coming out. If not make sure your fuse is good and you have the power on in the car (key turned backwards on most cars will power the harness if not turn if forward like you are going to crank it. If you are not sure the radio is good, you can pop the hood of your car and hook up the red wire from the radio to positive side of the battery cable and the black to the ground side of the battery cable and you should be able to turn the radio on. If you see it power up, you will know your problem is in your harness. Hope this helps

Installation of new cd player in 2002 VR-X Lancer


There are aftermarket wireharnesses available. I suggest the $15-25 purchase. The wires usually match color for color to the aftermarket stereo saving a major head ache if attempting to figure out the factory harness. These adaptors are available at many audo part stores and local installation shops. To check the harness you need, Metra, on of the main aftermarket wire harness manufacturers has an application chart on line, see metraonline.com or a search for American International or Scosche.

Problem installing car stereo


THE FIAT BRAVO HAS A STANDARD ISO CONNECTION WHICH SHOULD PLUG INTO MOST AFTERMARKET STEREOS AND THEREFORE YOU WON'T NEED TO KNOW THE COLOUR CODE, IF THERE ISN'T ANY PLUG ON THE STEREO BUY AN ISO PLUG THEY'RE NOT EXPENSIVE AND CONNECT IT TO THE RADIO AND JUST PLUG IT INTO THE CAR HARNESS, YOU DON'T REALLY WANT TO CUT THE CAR'S WIRING
