Question about Car Audio & Video
I have a 1999 mercury sable sedan and one of my family members gave me a
Kenwood KDC-119 Radio. He didnt give me anything else with it. The kit comes with some wires and im wondering will i have to crimp or solder anything in order to install this radio?
The radio should have come with its own wiring harness as well. The install kit will have a wiring harness that connects to the factory harness the original radio is connected to. You need the Kenwood harness and match the colors of the harness to the colors on the install kit harness. They should be crimped to make sure you have a solid connection and do not let any loose wires hang out anywhere. Then it is a good idea to use electrical tape and insulate each wire, then tape them all together for easier installation.
If you do not understand how to do this, you really should take it to someplace that installs radios, they can do it quickly and easily. No worries then about if you have made any mistakes. I have seen many a radio in my shop needing repair from people who thought it was easy to install a radio, but didn't really know how to do it. One mistake can end up costing more than buying a new radio.
let me know if you need any more help.
