My car radio is not switching on.the name of my car radio is a sony xr ca440x


For the most part, all car stereos, including the Sony XPLOD car stereo will have the same basic wiring with the exception of some additions for connecting to after market amplifiers. They all have a wire for the memory which is continuous power and one for main switchable power. There will be one main ground and a speaker ground. The rest of the wires are for the speakers. These are usually paired as the same color except the wire with the black stripe is the speaker ground. The easiest way to hook up a new radio is to get a pigtail harness for the Sony XPLOD from any store that sells radios. This is a direct hook up simplifying installation. The pigtail has the proper connection to simply plug in to the original connector and the other end to the new radio.

I have a 96 escort with no radio ;the wires are there,but i want to install a new radio.i don't know what wires hook up to the new radio


Hi, if the connector is still there, it is easiest to purchase a ford wiring adapter. The adapter will match the factory wires to an aftermarket stereo. If the connector is gone, see your factory wire colors below. Please let me know if you need additional help or have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

easy fix is to go to a car audio retailer such as best buy an pick up a wire harness adaptor they generally cost 10 to 15 bucks this will save you the hassle of tracing down the wires however general wires are red-power black-ground blue remote amp turn on eight of the wires are for the front and rear speakers thier colors are paired an example would be solid green and then green with a black line these two wires are for one speaker +/- connections you can connect on speaker one at a time and then use the balance and fader control on the radio to check which wire are for front/rear and left/right speakers the factory radio has extra wires which usally control power antena,and dimmer switch for when you turn the headlights on

Hooking up amp and subwoofer to stock radio


Are you sure that you want to attempt this?
It's a nightmare if you never have worked on any kind of car stereo. I've installed my share of after market stereos, so I know it's lots of brain work and patience.

The color of the speaker wires are the only wires that you can probably identify right off the bat. It's not too complicated to attempt yourself. If you have put in an after market stereo before. Your Lexus has factory installed rear deck speakers. Look at the bottom side of the rear deck. Pop your head in the trunk and look up.

On the right speaker there are 2 wires and on the left speakers there are 2 wires.

I think that all 1991 Lexus LS models came with factory installed rear deck speakers. The speaker wires are factory installed. You want to keep these original factory wires as is, but want some thicker higher wattage amp wires for your sub woofers, but write down the 2 left and 2 right speaker wire colors with the stripes, for example the red with yellow stripe, blue with red stripe, brown with orange stripe, black with white stripe and so on. There are four wires in all. Keep your wire colors on a piece of paper, because we come back to that later on.

You will need to run the thick red power cable to the car battery. That gets bolted directly down to the battery. You'll have to remove the bottom door jam that holds the carpet down. There might be a couple screws that you'll have to remove to pull up the jam. Tuck the red wire and lead wire in under the carpet and screw the jam back on when done. Do the same for the 4 thick higher amp speaker wires and route them to the back in the trunk.

Make sure to bolt the Black Ground Cable on the Chassis of the car for a good solid ground. The one thing that will cause a short is a loose ground wire or weak ground to the body.

Remove the radio from the dash. Be careful not to break the plastic around the radio. You should probably ask somebody for help, if you can not handle it yourself.

Now we need that piece of paper with the 2 left and 2 right wire colors with stripe laid out, you can do your splicing of wires. Simply splice the left and right speaker wires with the amp normal speaker wires that lead into the amp.
The amp may have stereo RCA jacks for input, I'm not sure which you have.

Make sure to match Left to Left and Right to Right. Now the AMP lead wire gets connected to the stereos power wire. This wire may be red or yellow, but I do not think it's gray. To test the wire splice into the yellow wire with the lead and start the car and turn it off. If the amp stays on with the car turned off, then change it to another wire. The goal is that it won't drain the battery with the car turned off.

There's some troubleshooting involve with factory installed stereos and making modifications. If you get this far you did a great job. You'll have it when the lead wire is connected and the car turns off and the amp turned off and when the car turns on and the amp turns on. Make sure you do not mess with the antenna wire. that turns on and then shuts off after the antenna is up.

New radio installed - now dash lights don't work


Most factory stereos are wired to the dash dimmer switch. Usually if the dash lights go out after an after market stereo installation, it is because the wire that originally went to the factory stereo is not used for after market stereos. Double check the fuses and ensure the wire that controlled the lights on the factory stereo is not grounding out on something.

I need the colour wire description for a 2000 dodge caravan Im removing the the factory stero and installing after market stero and need wring diagram , what each wire is for ,speakers ,power etc.


HI.
In the caravan are 2 types of Radio.
1. Normal sound system.
1 Premium sound system.
Note: If you don't want to cut the original wires,
You can buy a harness connector to install the aftermarket Radio. The connector are made by aplication, and are plug in.
The colour of the connector are the same colour with the Aftermarket Radio. Just you need to soldering or just put joint connectors.

Normal: colour of wires.

Pink = Battery voltage.
Red/withe = Ingnition Voltage.
Brown/red and Dark green. = Left front speaker.
Dark bku/red and Voilet = right front speaker.
Brown light blue and brown/yellow. = left rear speaker.
Dark blue/orange and dark blue white = right rear speaker.
Ground is a single wire behind the radio.

If you have a premium sound. You need to use the front speaker out to connect the speaker on the door and the speaker on the dash. To complete the 6 speaker.

OK... I hope this information work for you.

Thank you , For use fixya. Rate please.
