I just got a Insignia cd/stereo/MP3 car radio and I really need an installation manual. Lots of wires, colors, don't know what they power. Where can I get the manual? It's going in my 01 Dodge Ram


Greg,

Do yourself a HUGE favor. Drop $8 on a radio wiring harness connector. You wire it to the aftermarket radio while sitting at your kitchen table. When done, yank the factory radio and simply PLUG IN the new radio directly into the truck's wiring harness. Done! No cutting of your truck's wires, splicing, taping or hanging upside-down making connections. Plus, when it's time to sell the truck - you can pull out your radio and dump the factory radio back in the truck in no time.

Im in great need for the color coded wires for the factory stereo, I just bought the car and the person who had it before me, ripped out the stereo and cut off the wiring harness before the bank...


ok there should be 8 speaker wires, red wire +, a yellow wire acc(i think its called) and a black wire -, the after market stereo will come with a harness and it will be labled to make it easy, with car speakers it dosent watter what why you put the wires on the same speaker as they are both positives, if there are any left over on your stock loom I would not worry thats all you need. Just ask me if you need any more help

Im putting n a stereo but i dont no the color code


The stereo side of the wires should be labeled. Check out the12volt.com for a wiring schematic for the truck side. I advise against cutting and splicing wires for a stereo installation though. They make inexpensive harness adapters that will allow you to splice into the stereo harness without cutting into the factory wiring.
