I don't have a wire harness for my Pioneer car radio DEH 780 MP and it's a 14 pin iso connector I need the diagram so I'll know what color wire to put in the right place for it


Walmart and some auto parts stores have installation kits that have the plugs already wired for your radio and vehicle harness. You simply connect them together.....no cutting or splicing.

Apparently, you have no power at the 12 volt battery/memory wire at the radio harness of the vehicle. This wire is white with blue in color.
Also, based upon your description, you have connected the battery/memory wire and the accessory wire of the radio to the 12 volt accessory (switched) wire of the vehicle. This wire is white with red in color.
Check the radio/ stereo fuse of the car. You may have blown the fuse during your installation.
You have no memory at the radio because when you turn off the key, you lose all power to the radio.
Also, I mentioned the wire colors just in case you used an aftermarket radio wiring harness. Make sure that the yellow from the Pioneer unit is going to the battery power source and, the red of the Pioneer is going to the switched power source.

Hello ryan_jaime,

It's good that you have an aftermarket Mazda wiring harness. It will allow you to make all of the connections in a well-lighted and comfortable location rather than fumbling around behind the dash.

If you are somewhat skilled at soldering, the most secure, electrically conductive, and positively insulated splices are made with solder and heat-shrink tubing. You can get the needed equipment from any Radio Shack, Lowe's or even WalMart. Be sure to put the heat-shrink tubing on the wires BEFORE you solder them together. I had to say that! Because I've forgotten many times! But if the soldering route is not for you, get properly sized insulated inline crimp splices and the appropriate crimping tool. Match up each wire by function on the Pioneer harness with the corresponding wire on your aftermarket harness. Most of the time, the wires will be color-for-color matched. But make sure, sometimes wires for things like "illumination", "dimmer", "mute", etc may not be the same colors.

Disconnect the negative battery terminal while you are working behind the dash. After you have the harnesses spliced together, plug the radio end into your Pioneer, remove the old radio from the dash opening, unplug the antenna and wiring harness plug and plug the other end of your spliced harnesses into the vehicle plug and the antenna plug into your Pioneer's antenna connector. Slide the Pioneer loosely into the opening, but don't secure it yet. Reconnect the negative battery cable and test the receiver. If everything works, slide it into the dash opening and secure it. Use the rear support stud and rubber bumper if needed. Install the trim ring or separately purchased dash kit as required. Put the "face-fixing" screws in to prevent removal of the faceplate if desired. Reinstall any dash trim removed and you're finished.

Hope this helps.

Im hooking up a pioneer radio in a 1999 alero


anytime you are installing aftermarket stereo in car you should purchase wiring harness converter which comes with schematic, but if you insist on doing it old school youll need a repair manual to show color codes on wiring or a 12 light meter but lucky for you I looked up the wiring codes online heres link:

Radio connection Pioneer vs Subaru Forester


I would like to refer you to a reputable car audio dealer.

If you have NOT yet CUT THE FACTORY HARNESS, DON'T!!!!!!!
Airbags are nothing to take lightly...

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND a wiring harness adapter from a reputable source such as METRA, Scoche, or Pozitive Connections. Every wiring harness adapter changes the colors at the "pioneer side" of the harness to color match the PIONEER RADIO. All you have to do is color match, plug and play.

HOPE I HAVE HELPED.

Swapped out players and new one doesnt power up


Ok. recheck your harness. WIth some brands yes the harness will plug into the radio from a different manufacturer but recheck the wire colors. They usually change pins out. For example whats power on a particular pin may be a speaker wire on another brand unit with the same style plug... so get the harness that came with this radio. Check the pin location and wire color on that pin to the other harness. I almost guarantee that there is a difference. Hopefully you didnt damage your new cd player... let me know how it goes...
