Wiring diagram for a 2000 chevy venture and a jvc stereo


It is impossible to know without more information, but purchasing an adapter is the easiest thing to do. You can even find them at most Wal Mart stores. This will plug directly into the factory radio wiring letting you make the connections to the radio without cutting up the van wiring. Connecting the adapter to the radio is usually matching colors and makes the job easy.

If you want to use your dvd player whilst driving then i will tell you the best way to go about doing this but please read these warnings first.

WARNINGS.
1. any work you do at your own risk
2. it highly illegal to use any dvd or telly whilst driving
3. if caught using dvd whilst driving you will get a big fine and points on your license for driving whilst distracted.
4. if you have an accident whilst the dvd player is driving you wont be insured and you will be liable and charged with dangerous and reckless driving.
5. any short due to work carried out can cause you to destroy the stereo and in some cases cars have been set on fire, so if you are unsure what you are doing then please dont go ahead with this work as you could end up in a right mess.

Ok now the warnings are out of the way.

I take it you dont want to watch the dvd whilst driving but a passenger does i dont reccomend this work be carried out if the driver is planning on watching the dvd whilst driving, its not worth the risk its just to dangerous.

How To Bypass The Parking Brake To Watch DVDs'

the best way of doing this would be to get hold of the instruction manual to install this stereo you might get this off the net but if not you can contact the makers and they will be able to send you one for free, just the cost of postage to pay.

Now to actually bypass the parking brake witch dont let you play dvd whilst driving what you need to do is locate the wire that goes to the parking brake now this wire should be a brown wire unless somebody has re wired the stereo to fit other cars, once you are sure you have located the correct parking wire thats brown you then need to remove this wire from the parking brake. Now you need to earth this wire out to any metal on the car and secure it to that metal part this should then bypass the parking brake system for you.
You do this at your own risk you can destroy the stereo and in some cases set fire to the car so if you have never done this type of work before then please leave this to somebody who knows what they are doing.

Take your time, make sure you have the correct earth wire any other wire and you will short the stereo out destroying the stereo and possibly your car, so be warned.

No sound coming out of speakers


Old unit? possible innacurate grounding. miswired speakers. stay color code correct if possible. take 9v battery,touch wires until you get desired scraping sound without radio on or c/d running, (how to distinguish lfront, rfront ,lrear ,rrear locations. If you dont have matching color coding from deck harness to existing wires, you have to do 9v trick to find and isolate sp wires. Yellow or red can be power, not necessarily red. black obviously ground, blue is remote power for power antenna or for powering up a power amp..will pick my sons brain if you need more or detailed info.

My car stereo was stole they cut the factory wiring harness from the durango i need to know the color codes of the wires please


That's hard to answer cause it depends on how far back on the wire harness they cut. Plus if you have a Bose system or not. I would highly suggest to take it into a stereo install shop to at least check it out but maybe install the new stereo.

There is a wiring color code that all vehicles use but if the wires have been cut to far back they will be different colors. If you have a factory amp then you will have to rewire for the speakers to bypass it.

I added below the color code. Make sure you disconnect your battery before you start wiring anything.

Please note: You can do major damage to your truck computer and other components if you wire it wrong.

Proceed at your own risk

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.

Hooking up a new stereo


Go by a stereo shop and get an adapter for your car. It connects all of the correct wires to the aftermarket radio without damaging or removing wires from old connector.

You will need a brain to run the head unit. I have 3 of the same units. If you want to sell your head unit let me know, other wise its useless.

I am having trouble trying to install a stereo to my 1994 lincoln town car because i dont now the color code to the radio harnes so i can install it


Best thing to do is purchase a Radio Wiring Harness. These can be purchased at a Store like Circuit City, Best Buy, WalMart (not sure of your location) or a 12 Volt Specialty shop.

This harness will connect to your new radio harness and plug directly into the vehicle harness without having to cut wires. The Radio Wiring Harness will come with color identification to match to your radio harness.
