You will have to hard wire it. The wire diagram for the radio itself should be on the radio or in the manual. Now for the cars wiring you will have to look online or call a dodge dealer to get the wires. Here try this...http://www.the12volt.com/installbay/stereodetail/1.html. This tells you the color code for your car.

Dual xd1222 radio fit a 97 stratus wire harness


Basically the radio will fit but since harness differs between some chrysler products, you need to find the pigtail that will fit the Dodge harness and give bare wires to connect the Dual's respective wires. An example of this can be seen at http://www.hifisoundconnection.com/Shop/Control/Product/fp/vpid/2669860/vpcsid/0/SFV/30046

I have found similar pigtails at Walmart, Best Buy, and some autoparts stores. Crutchfield includes all this based on your purchase - just a thought.

I have a 2000 dodge stratus im putting in my own radio i cant figure out where i put the black wire coming out of my car into my jvc radio?


If the wire has a connector on the end it will go into a hole in the back of the radio. If it is just a regular black elec. wire that is the gound and you will need to connect the black wire comeing from the radio to it. I hope this helps!

I install a radio it dont keep a memory


Pull the radio back out. I bet you hooked up both power wires (red and orange or yellow) to the ignition on hot wire. Orange or yellow depending on the radio usualy goes to the ignition on hot wire and red to a constant hot wire. Check the radio wiring diagram or list. One of the power wires has to go to a full time power source. check the wires with a circuit tester with the key off till you find the constant hot wire (battery power)

Installed the sony xplod


You may have used the dimmer wire to ground your radio and blown your fuse. First unplug your radio. This problem can be checked with a multimeter by seeing if the wire is grounded with the car off. Turn on the lights and see if it reads 12 volts on that wire. If so, use another ground wire or attach it to the truck's chassis earth.

Install in 2000 Neon?


Hi Siriusearl,

If the original connector and wires are not messed up and your doing a direct replacement of your Factory Radio, your in good shape. Go to Best buy and get you and adpater to go from 2000 neon. If you have the one that direct couples and leaves wires to terminate to the JVC, then you will have to hook up by standard hookup colors. And it should be color to color from JVC to the Adapter cable. If your still have trouble, leave another comment here and I will get an alert to check in on you.
