If you are sure you matched the wires up correctly, then odds are it is a bad harness. If you have access to a multimeter, you can check voltage on the speaker terminal to see if you are actually getting a signal. I would verify Jeep follows a normal wiring scheme as well. I have never installed a radio on a Jeep, so I can't say for sure. I would assume they would. You will probably have to get a new harness. Wal-mart will probably do an exchange for you.

Sony xplod stereo wiring diagram


Yes you need to turn on the BOSE amplifier in the car to hear the sound. The wiring diagram is actually on top of the factory radio
You will need a 12v trigger to turn the amp on. this is assuming you have all the speaker (inputs) connected to the output from your new deck.

I just bought a new kw-AVX740 radio and i have a 01 mustang and i don't really no how to install it


first and foremost you need to buy a car audio installation kit for your car model and year. Wal mart has some, but i think you may need to drive down to your local car audio shop and buy one from them if wal mart don't have them. Remove the old/factory radio. If an aftermarket radio is already installed then you may get lucky and find the harness already installed, but depending on what kind or radio it is( ex: DIN or Double DIN), but the specs for your radio is Double DIN(fat) so you may still need to buy the installation kit. Once you have the kit, everything is color coded, just match the wires and connect, then plug the harness after you have secured the wires. For a clean professional installation look, solder your wires(60/40 solder and soldering iron needed) and seal the connection with a heat shrink tube(audio shop carries the tube as well) and your good to go. I found you the install manual, just copy and paste(make sure all wires are connected with keys off the ignition until everything is good and connected)

1994 jeep cherokee sport radio just all of a sudden quite playing do you have any suggestions


Check the fuse. If you aren't sure where to find it, then check the owners manual for the fuse listing(schematic). It's also possible the cheap radio may have croaked. Cheap replacements & easy install wiring kits are available @ wal-mart. Ask the department clerk for help if need be.

the yellow wire on the radio harness needs to have a constant 12v power supply and the red wire needs a switched 12v supply and that should solve your problem

I need a diagram to wire a sony car radio to a 2006 toyota tundra


I'd suggest starting with a radio harness adapter designed to provide wire-ends for the plug head in your tundra, I've found a few on eBay in this search:

Beyond that, here's the wiring diagram & installation manual for your gt200 radio:

Iam looking for a picture diagram showing how to install an after market radio ,any one know where i can find this online ? thank you


Buy an install kit. This will include faceplate and radio chassis adapters for your vehicle. They are not costly. You will also want to get a plug and play style wiring harness adapter for your vehicle; Scosche is one of a few different manufacturers who make both of these indispensable items for stereo installations. Electronics stores almost always have these, as do Wal-Marts.

Need to know color schematics for radio harness wiring


If installing Toyota radios/CD Players they just plug in regluar sockets in vehicle.
If installing Non-Toyota radios/CD Players youll have to buy a wiring kit from Wal-Mart/Circuit City/etc it would have the wiring diagram in it.

Factory Amp


I assume you used the correct Metra plug (70-1878) to install the radio. Ensure the blue and white wire on the Metra is attached to the blue and white wire (or solid blue) on the Sony. This will provide + turn on voltage to the factory amp.
The other good possibility is that the Metra harness has a black and a black and white set of wires both must be ground.
Lastly the Metra harness does not provide these( -) grounds, they are supplied by the braided strap . or the single wire that was attached to the back of the Jeep radio.
