Well, I don't know what exactly you had hooked up but, the yellow wire from the Pioneer connects to the vehicle battery wire(light green) behind the radio, the red wire goes to the vehicle's accessory wire(yellow/black).There doesn't seem to a ground wire listed for this vehicle behind the radio so, you have to ground the radio to chassis (some metal behind the radio).
This should handle your power issue.

LF speaker(+) green
LF speaker(-) Black/white
RF speaker(+) white/red
RF speaker(-) black/white

Can I "PLEASE" get a wiring diaphragm?


Do you still have the factory harness hanging out of the dash?? Do you just need to know what the wires are on the stereo??? If your factory harness is still there go buy you a factory install kit for your make and model of car. if you need to know what wires are what on your radio let me know

How do i install it the rite way ??


You need a dashkit, wireharness and antenna adaptor. It all is vehcial specfic so you need to look in up for the make model and year. Use schoche or metra online to give you the part numbers of the kits some cars will not require the dashkit or the antenna adaptor.

What wire do I connect my after market stereo memory wire to? My aftermarket alpine stereo is connected to a 2006 GMC 1500


You need to get the Wire color code for your pacific stereo and for your pacific car. Your really lucky if they randomly end up to have the same color code. Each speaker has two wires that need to be connected to the car, a negative and a positive. All negative wires SHOULD be connected to only other negative corresponding wires. Not a huge deal but you sacrifice sound quality. There is a "12v + Constant", one on the stereo and one on the car that need to be connected. There is also a "12 Switch" on each end that need to be connected. The constant is continiously running power to your radio to keep the time accurate as well as keep your setting on your stereo. Some have what is called a memory wire, only one, either coming from the car or the stereo that needs to be connected to the constant connection. You also have a thicker gauage wire that is usually black on both ends, but you never know, that needs to be connected. Electricity cannot travel through thin air, it has to be physicially in contact with the ground(indirectly or directly). If your hooking up a sub or an amp I really haven't gone through the proccess, but for a simple 4 speaker and stereo system, that should be all that you need, for more cars. All Different. Some have two costant wires. DO NOT use both to only hook up stereo. You use only one with one appliance the other is for amps, and subs. If you have both of the constants from the car connected to the constant on the stereo your car will not start, and your gauages will short out until one of them is disconnected. If you are only use one, it is a good idea to use the larger gauage wire. The smaller the wire the more risk of fire(in correspondance to the watt to gauage ratio). I hope this helps. Spent all day doing it. Never found a guide. My advice is to call the manufactuers personally because none of the info I found matched up to the other sources I found.

I am hooking up the stereo and I know I have power coming to the wires cause the black and yellow ones spark but when I hook them to the stereo I don't get any power


The yellow wire is the constant wire, you need to find the battery + wire which will be red and hooked that to your deck, the red wire is the main 12v wire and the yellow wire is there just to use a little bit of power to keep the memory i yur deck, i.e. the time, cd position stuff like that

Where does the blue/white remote wire hook to.


Hi, I'm not sure I understand your question. It sounds to me like you haev a 1989 GMC truck, and you've installed a JVC CD player in it. The CD player has a blue and white wire coming out of the back, and you would like to know where it goes and what it does. Is that right? If so, then the blue/white wire labeled "Remote" coming out of your CD player is intended to turn on an external amplifier or some other "remote device". If your truck has a power antenna installed, this would be the wire that tells your power antenna to extend and retract. Many stereos have two of these wires - one for the power antenna and one for an amplifier. If you don't have an amplifier or power antenna, you don't need to do anything with this wire, just leave it alone and make sure it doesn't touch any bare metal behind the radio. Hope this helps.

on the back of he cd player is the wire harnest there should be a SOLID blue wire on there take the remote wire connect it to that and run it to your amp and put it where the amp says remote. there is an easier way you can hook up your power to the amp then take the remote wire and just run it directly to the power wire on the amp you should only need a couple inches of wire and it will work fine
