The orange wire is usually for a dimmer. MOst stereos will not have this connection.

Trying to install pioneer cd player in street rod.


You need:

a 12v + source from the battery (yellow wire)
a 12v + switched with the key (red wire)
a Ground (black wire)

then you need your four speakers hooked up, i'm unsure of the color codes on them but they are usually pairs i.e. green and green with black stripe for one speaker white with black stripe for another etc.

other wires such as illumination (orange) and power antenna (blue) are optional

the illumination (orange) you would connect to 12v + from a headlight switch and it would cause the unit to dim when you turned your headlights on

The power antenna (blue) is used, as the name implies to control a power antenna if you have one, or more commonly as the signal to turn an audio amp on (on the remote connection)

Hope this helps

Installing CD player


here is the wiring schematic.
Constant 12V+ Orange Switched 12V+ Yellow Ground Black Illumination Gray Dimmer Brown Antenna Right Window Trim Front Speakers 6 1/2" Doors Left Front (+) Tan Left Front (-) Gray Right Front (+) Light Green Right Front (-) Dark Green Rear Speakers 4" x 6" Side Pillar Left Rear (+) Brown Left Rear (-) Yellow Right Rear (+) Dark Blue Right Rear (-) Light Blue

And you will need a Wire harness... Metra #GMRC-LAN-01
And a mounting Kit Metra #99-3305
And antenna adapter Metra #40-cr10

This is for the basic radio... if you have upgrade NAV/Onstar/Premium sound.... there are different wiring harnesses available.

Let me know if you need more help.

Well first you will have to get the fit kit for your car to prevent the radio from being stolen, and make it fit right. you can get this part at Best Buy, Circut City, or even sometimes at walmart. also you will need to get the proper wiring harness. all you have to do is go to an audio place and ask them for the proper parts for your car and they will get them for you. After you have everything that they say you need all of the wires match up colors. extra wires you will have is the remote wire witch is blue w/white stripe. and an orange one (illumines) witch if isnt on the wiring harness for your car its fine. all the ill. wire does is dim the radio when you dim your other componets in your car.

You didn't cut the plastic connectors off the factory wiring, did you? One is gray and one black.... if not, just get to a stereo shop and buy a wiring kit for your car and all colors will match. They're about $10. If you DID..... well..... we have a LOT of work to do....
