My son is trying to put a new cd player into my daughters 1993 toyota corolla. He took the original radio out (cut the wires ) put the cd player in, but now we realise the tail lights and dash lights don't work. He is trying to put the original radio back but needs a diagram of the wiring at the back of the original radio. Can you help and do you know what the problem is with the lights?

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.
what you need is to buy a wiring adapter for your car.it only cost about 15 bucks and plugs right in to your original plugs that were connected to your factory radio.the great thing about this adapter is that you dont hava to cut your original plug off just in case if you ever want to reinstall your original back.also the wires that go to your new headunit are color coded to match the exact colors that you connect to your stereo.you can't mess your connection up because all you have to do is connect each wire to the right color,tape them up,connect your stereo and you have music with all of your speakers working like they should and without any headaches.i hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny
ok... the 98 corolla (that i know of) only comes equipped with the tape deck and radio, you probably have a after market radio, these are easy to replace, you can buy any standard cd player to replace yours, even if the wiring harnesses dont match up right, i offer a diagram for the colors and labels on my tips, its fairly easy to do, check it out and good luck!
I took my car to halfords to have my stereo fitted (also bought stereo from Halfords). they basically had to taken everything out of the middle bit to get to the stereo (All the air vents and control switches etc). It took about an hour to do, but at least you know there is no quick way to steal the radio once it is in. I think it helped that I managed to get a guy that had once been a macanic so he knew what he was doing.
Hope this helps
