What's all need to install a aftermarket radio in a 05 Dodge caravan? Been awhile since I did it yrs before but the wife's van radio is going out CD player and radio itself

Radio, aftermarket radio kit(used to mount the radio), and an aftermarket wire plug. This plugs into the radio and your existing harness. Otherwise you have to cut and splice wires. I use a volt /ohm meter to cut and splice.

Replace ignition switch

1. Remove seat.
Always disconnect the negative cable first. If the positive
cable should contact ground with the negative cable
installed, the resulting sparks may cause a battery explosion
which could result in serious injury.
2. Disconnect battery cables, negative cable first.
3. Unscrew ignition/light lock ring. Push switch back through hole.
4. Cut switch wires approximately 3.0 in. (76 mm) from switch body. The new switch must be spliced into existing wiring harness using splice connectors.
5. After splicing new switch into wire harness, place switch into position. The word "TOP" is marked on the top of the switch body to allow for proper positioning of switch. 6. Install lock ring to secure switch in place.

The radio will not turn off when you open the driver's side door ( have to open the passenger to get the radio to shut off )

Sounds like the splice problem in the driver's side door sill.

Some times water gets into the channel, and causes issues with the splices to the VSM ( Vehicle Security Module ). The big one seems to be the door input. Other symptoms can be the power seat ( if equipd ) does not work, or the power mirrors stop working.

On the std cab, the splice is closer to the a pillar, on the SuperCrew the splice is towards the c pillar where the wires route up the pillar.

The splice is a 3 wires splice ( 1 wire from 1 direction, to 2 wires the other direction ) that are covered in loom tape that looks like hockey stick tape.

Pictures of the splices.

SuperCrew Purple wire

Be prepared with some 14 AWG wire to add to the splice ( need to cut back to find clean wire on both sides ), soldering iron for the splices, and marine heat shrink tube ( the ones with the water proofing gel in them ) to repair it.

A 2002 impala radio lights but no sound comes out

Below is an answer I found on line pasted it here - checked it out - found I had same problem. Additional notes from my repair...You must remove the scuff trim - pull back the carpet to get to the harness - inside the harness trace the two orange wires from the rear frontwards... the splice is approx. in line with the column between the front and rear doors...until you find the splice with a single orange wire - my splice was all green powder copper corrosion = no power. I pulled on the two rear wires and they immediately seperated form the single wire splice joint, came right apart - spliced -took about two minutes - radio works like new - good luck... I found the problem to be an orange power feed wire in the passenger side rear door scuff plate that totally corroded open. Evidently water came into the car interior through the fresh air vent below the front windshield and ran back though the wire harness tunnel. The splice area was just past the passenger rear door pillar where one of the orange wires was spliced into two smaller orange wires that provided power to the factory amplifier. Respliced the wires and now works great. Please pass this on as the most likely failure mode for this vehicles inop radio when the radio lights up but no sound. RICK

Radio/cd player went dead. Tried replacing fuses

Do NOT Cut and Splice. Your local parts store sells an aftermarket radio plug in which connects to your factory harness and then you can splice in your radio into the new connectors ends that are labeled for what they go to.

I need to know what radio wires are for what

Your best bet if you havent already cut the wires is to buy a radio installation adapter. If the wire are cut go to a salvage yard and cut a plug out of another car and splice it into your by matching the wires. Then use the adapter. The problems is that many of the wires in your car are multi purpose and if they are not hooked up right the radio may work but other more important things may not.

Hi, I need help with a head unit, i own a Pontiac Grand Am 2002, and i decided to change a stock stereo system(i had a standard one, not monsoon) anyways, i bought a Pioneer deh-2100ib. I know that theres...

I had the same problem with mine and my 2004 Chevy Silverado. Gm is making the cars so that have to buy the quick connect harness for it to work. All the chimes, idiot lights, electric read out is all through the radio harness, so you can not cut and splice any more. These harnesses are expensive too. Best buy is price at $120.00 for the Grand AM. My truck was $115.00. Its F****king rediculous!!!

Trying to splice wiring harness for trailer lights

there is no need to splice wires especially on a 02, you can get a trailer harness at any autoparts store that will connect into your original harness. Dont get me wrong you can splice into it but do you really want to ??

Major power window problems. 2000 pontiac bonneville

I had this problem where only the drivers door power equipment works.

It is caused by a splice under the driver's seat. Spice #S302 where the input from the drivers door module to the other door modules connects. It is one of those cheap *** splice that should be outlawed. Moisture gets in it and corrodes. Cut back the wires till you get the good stuff and redo it the right way.

Splice S302 can be found under the carpet about six inches before where the wires go up to the drivers seat. It is in a plastic wrap and tape. I believe the wires for the window are brown and white.
