Check the fuse behind the stereo and in your fuse box first off and make sure the power wire/ignition wires are on the correct pin. do this with a test light for verification. also check the ground wire. after you test and connect these 3 wires, the stereo should turn on. Your wiring harness may not be done correctly so visual verification with a test light would be the best thing before starting a car install. If this still does not work and the stereo you took out did, it is a malfunctioning unit.

    Update to my last post. Newer cars also have to have the buttons on the dash reconnected prior to testing the unit or else the check engine light will come on. (new) good rule of thumb is to connect everything and reinstall the dash prior to testing the unit. After initial testing, you can go back and troubleshoot. Other option is to keep obdii tester on hand to reset the check engine light.

Aftermarket stereo turns on but can't hear anything 1997 explorer


Did the truck have the premium sound system? If so, you will need to connect the blue remote wire to the blue remote wire on the harness. You may also need a special harness to bypass the factory amplifier.

Radio won't play


There may be differences between the color coding of the adapter wires and the color coding of the vehicle. Check to determine whether the wires were functionally matched, not just matched by color. Check for missing or poor connections

Should i have any spare wires when hooking up an after market car stereo


Yes, It's a very good possibility that you will have a few wires left over. Normally a wire for an aftermarket amp to be triggered on when you turn your radio on and possibly a power antenna or a dimming function that dims your radio lights when your headlights are on. It of course always depends on if you have a power antenna or not, or if you have an aftermarket amp or not or if you have the dimming feature on your car or not. These wires don't apply to everyone.
You will just match the colors between the wiring harness that came with the DUAL radio and the interface adapter that goes to your car. Make sure you use **** style crimp connectors. If not the wires could come loose or cause a popping noise or cause the radio to turn off while driving.
Other than that, installing an aftermarket radio is mostly matching the colors up between the two harnesses and crimping the wires together.3_6_2012_2_31_36_am.jpg

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.

Im installing an aftermarket stereo in my 2002 Grand Am.. I bought an expensive harness and its not working.. I have the radio working, but the ignition wire from the radio is hooked up to battery...


This vehicle does not have a switched power suppy in the factory harness. The orange wire in the car harness is a constant 12 volts.
To resolve connect the 12 volt power supply from the head unit to a switched circut at the fuse block and this will resolve your problem.

Install dual xd1222 into a 1993 dodge intrepid


The best way is to get a stereo installation kit designed for your car. It will have the surround for the new stereo to fit where the stock stereo fit. Also, it comes with a wiring harness that you connect the new stereo to then it plugs in to the stock radio plug. Most local automotive stereo stores should carry them.

I'm trying to put an aftermarket stereo into my 2002 chevy blazer but can't figure out the wiring. I can't get it to power up. Does anyone have any ideas?


Hello dusashbrax,

The wiring color code for the 2002 Blazer is here. Just match up the function of each wire on the aftermarket receiver with the appropriate color wire from the vehicle.

A better solution is to purchase a vehicle specific wiring harness. Then you just match it up with the receiver harness color for color.

Hope this helps.
