Most likely you will benefit from finding the proper adapter. Many vehicles have enhanced systems with an amplifier onboard making it difficult to wire aftermarket stereos directly.

Hi, I have an offbrand, dual 15"s, but they still work like the normal brand ones. The question is, why they give me feedback when the car is off and some Windows r open. It just sits there and hums


It sounds like your amp isn't shutting off. If its humming when the stereo is off, and the key is in the off position, make sure that you have the remote power wire coming off the amp hooked to the blue/white wire coming off the stereo harness(with aftermarket harness). If your using the stock stereo, it can be hooked to the switched 12+ wire ( lookup factory wiring here:
The Install Doctor The Do It Yourself Car Stereo Installation Resource... ) but the amp will only shut off with the key off, not when the stereo is off and the key is in the on position.

Sorry i forgot to say i have a 1996 saturn so i need the stereo wiring color code of stock stereo to put in my new stereo


Buy a wiring kit from wal-mart or stereo shop. It will allow you to plug into stock wiring without cutting anything, and have instructions for hooking up your new system. Cheap and easy, plus you can go back to stock should you ever sell the car.

2001 gmc sierra rear pillar speaker setup. So I hooked up rear 4x6 speakers in the stock location. From the factory it didnt have rear speakers and when I hooked these up to the factory wires l dont have...


I would guess that GM didn't hook these wires up to the factory stereo, as the factory stereo may not have the front back fade feature. They put the wires in to save you time if you decide to put another stereo in. Look under the dash, you will probably see the other end there. I'm not sure about this. Just a guess, but my tractor trailer is set up that way, and I only have 2 speakers, but wires are run to all possible speaker sites. Good luck.

I replaced the stock radio with an aftermarket one and my tail lights and dash lights dont work now


Most likely you got the illumination wire for the stock radio grounded. The stock radio has lights in it that are connected to the dash lights to illuminate the dials of the radio. Most aftermarket stereos don't have a hook up for that. The wire may have got hooked up to ground. I would check the fuse to see if it's bad. Also you might want to undo the new stereo, replace the fuse, if it's bad, and check the wires for battery when the headlights are on.

How do i connect a kenwood amp to my 2003 bmw m3 with a stock hk system and head unit? i just need to kno where to connect the amp to the car radio


You will need to connect your speaker outputs from the head unit to the high power inputs on the amplifier. If the amp only has low power inputs(rca jacks) then you will need to get a device that lowers the output signal from the radio so the amp can be connected. The red wire will go to the switched power. The yellow will go to constant power. Black goes to ground. Now the blue wire is the signal the amp gets from the stereo to turn on. Your stock stereo will probably not have this ability so you will have to hook that wire to the switched power. Your amp will come on whenever the key is on...even if the stereo is off. If your stock stereo has a wire that sends out a power signal when it is turned on you could try that for the blue wire. Just make sure you have the negative battery cable on the car disconnected so you don't short out your vehicle's electrical system while installing the amp.
