No - the factory cable is a one piece cable to the radio- what you can do is to cut off the end that went to the original antenna replace it with a female antenna end and just plug the new antenna into it (easiest way)

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables

Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

I want to install it in my 1998 dodge ram but i dont know where to begin. i need step by step help with parts i would need.

hi well it is a long process but i hope this will help you, tools you will need are 1x Philips screw driver ( cross head screw driver ) 1x 10mm socket and driver 2x original security keys ( if required! ) first thing to do is make sure you have all the parts for your radio that are needed these should be supplied with the system but here is a check list of what you need to fit it this will also depend on how you will mount it in the dash also, some car radio stores have power adaptors specifically for certain types of audio equipment to vehicle power plug, ie, they should have a lead that will plug into the plug from your vehicle into the plug for the audio unit..would be worth having an ask before you start cutting plugs off of things first and would cost only a few bucks, not only that it saves all the wiring up from one thing to another and also if you sell your truck, you can just plug original radio back in just a tip.... 1x security cage 2x security keys 1x power plug lead 1x aerial adaptor ok, to remove the original radio Open up the power outlet door and locate and remove one (1) Phillips head screw using your Phillips screwdriver . Set screw aside. Open up both the cup holder door and the ashtray door, remove the bezel that surrounds the radio and climate control and extends across the instrument cluster,To do this, grasp the bezel with your hands on the bottom right side of bezel just above the cup holder door pulling toward you to release a series of clips. Once released, work the remaining clips loose by pulling toward you all the way around the bezel. There are a total of fourteen (14) clips. When the bezel is loose disconnect the wiring harness to the power outlet and set bezel aside. Using a 10mm socket & driver locate one of the (1) screws below and to the left of the radio holding the radio in place. Remove that screw and set it the same with the screw on the top right, remove this and set aside, gently grasp the bottom of the radio and pull towards you (note!!! some may have a security cage already fitted if so, make sure you have the keys handy to remove it ), once in the correct position you can then access the rear plugs and areal, disconnect them from the radio, and set the radio aside ok that's the easy bit done, now the hard bit starts...... Pull all the plugs out of the old radio recess ( don't pull so hard as to brake them though, just enough to work with if you do not have the plug to plug adaptor ) you should have 2 or 3 plugs depends on if you have tweeters in your truck, the main power plug should have these wires on it as you look at the plug from the front ( where it plugs into the old radio ) from left to right brown/red = left front speaker - neg dark blue/red = right front speaker - neg black/yellow = day sensor orange = dimmer red/white = fuse power ignition pink = fuse box + pos violet/brown = ccd bus + pos white/black = ccd bus - neg light green = choke relay brown/yellow = left rear speaker + pos dark blue/white = right rear speaker + pos dark green = left front speaker + pos violet = right front speaker + pos brown/light blue = left rear speaker - neg dark blue/orange = right rear speaker - neg black/dark blue = ground - neg ok, that's that done, first things first, make sure you put the security cage in before we go any further, as if you connect the wires so they are permanently connected you will have to undo all your hard work and start again, so now that's out the way now we have what the colour ( i am from uk lol colour ) wires are for what things, time to connect them to the stereo plug, you can either cut the plugs and directly wire to wire, solder them, or just twist and tape them, i personally am a perfectionist and would solder them and use shrink covers on them, or just get plug to plug adaptor..ok here we go, the main power wires are the most important, obviously we need power to the system, and also we need to keep the programmed stations once done, so here is the wire to wire connections you need to do from your old plug to the new stereo plug ( as i said its up to you how you do them ) ok..... you need the constant power ( memory for the set stations and other stuff ) and an ignition power and also a good earth/negative
this will be as follows
Pink ( old plug ) to Yellow ( new plug ) constant power or memory as it is known. Red/White ( old plug ) to Red ( new plug ) Ignition power ( when ignition is turned on ) Orange (old plug ) to Orange/white ( new plug ) Dimmer ( when dash is dimmed if to bright ) Black/Dark blue (old plug ) should be left as is no need to touch, Black ( new plug ) this should be attached to a clean metal area as this is the main earth to chassis.
ok that's the power sorted, it should now be able to switch on and off and remember programmed stations.ok now to the speakers...check the other plugs for these wires these are as follows
violet right front speaker pos+ (old) to Grey ( new ) dark Green left front speaker pos+ (old) to White (new) dark blue/white right rear speaker pos + (old) to Purple (new) brown/yellow left rear speaker pos + (old) to Green (new) brown/red left front speaker neg - (old) to White/black (new) dark blue/red right front speaker neg - (old) to Grey/Black (new)
and that's that...the new stereo does not have provisions for 6 speakers unless you are transferring it through an amp, this is the basic 4 speaker set up, there may be more wires for other speakers on the power plug from the new stereo, and these might go to the other speakers if you have them, you will also have other wires on the new plug, like parking sensor wire, this is connected to the hand brake/parking brake wire, and electric areal wire etc etc, these will have labels on them to tell you what they are for, you do not have these with the old plug, and some of them you will not need to use, that will be up to you on what you will be adding, like amp's, TV/DVB receivers, multi disc CD changer etc etc...well i hope this has helped you, its taken ages to write.....good luck, please comment and rate thanks

I want my player to play dvd while driving how do i bypass to make this possible

  • 1st you will need to purchase a 12 volt or above Momentary Push Button/(Toggle)switch (about $5 Radio Shack)
  • 2 2nd Using the Diagonal Pliers adjust the length of the Radio's Emergency Brake Wire to your desire. Make sure you have enough wire so you can mount it where you can easily access it like beneath your steering wheel/ on the Dash Board.
  • 3 3rd Connect one end to the emergency brake wire from the radio and then connect the other wire from the switch to a ground to your car. You can use the same ground connection that you used for the radio and it will be fine. Make sure you wrap up the wires using the Electrical Tape to prevent shorts.
  • 4 4th (Using Button Switch) When you are ready to use the DVD player insert DVD and after a few seconds the screen will turn blue and the message to "Set the emergency brake" will come on. Now just press the button (4x Times)for one second and release it. On The fourth time the screen takes about 6 second to display the video.
  • 5 5th (Using Toggle Switch) When you are ready to use the DVD player insert DVD and after a few seconds the screen will turn blue and the message to "Set the emergency brake" will come on. Now just flip the swtich on and off (4x Times). On The fourth time the screen takes about 6 second to display the video.

    Forgot my password cant get into screen. model xdvd8181

    Look for the fuse box under your dash, (its some times installed under your steering wheel.) if its not there look under your hood inside your engine. somewhere there should be a fuse box. now... once you find it on the cap, lid, or door that covers the fuse box look for the fuse that says "stereo" or "radio" its usually a 15amp fuse. (most cars).... pull that fuse and turn the car ON and make sure that was the fuse for the stereo. (in this case the XDVD8181) it should not be ON... (the car should be ON and the indash should be OFF) leave the fuse OFF for 6 minutes that should be enough time for the indash to reset. once you have done that replace your fuse and turn your car back on, your indash should be back on and your screen, you should have the ENTER CODE screen up. Now the default code is 0000. if you for some reason forgot your code OR your code is not working, Call this number- 1-866-382-5476 they should help you from there.
    your welcome... ALex UTa

    Does Pioneer still offer FREE replacement screen ribbon cables??

    Yes they will replace the ribbon cable for free for only one time. but if you did the bypass mod they will unmod it and charge you $200 for doing it. In that case you better of send it to that guy Rich with Same Day Audio Service on Ebay, he will fix it with his company manufactured milspec ribbon cable for I think $85. His cables are much higher quality than Pioneer's and come with a free lifetime warrantee if you have it perform by him or you can purchase the cable from him and put it in by yourself but he won't guarantee it if you do. It not very hard to do if you are a little bit technical incline. I bought a few cables and replaced them myself with the Ribbon Cable Exhausted Tutor Guide on, but I have figured out a much easier way to do it. Let me know if you need help. Goodluck to you.

    Panasonic CQ-VD7001U

    You will likely have to purchase another remote. I don't know of any solution. When I had a problem with my panasonic, it was VERY hard to find a solution to the problem. They wanted me to ship it back to them and it ended up being I had a dead battery in my remote and the radio wouldn't turn on with the power button on the radio. Good thing I tried the battery before I sent it back. I would try ebay first to find a remote. If you can't find one, try to find someone who has the same radio and borrow their remote long enough to disable the anti-theft feature.
