I have a jack that fits w the wrong color wires meaning i need the pinout..power wires layout..?


The easy fix is t buy a wiring harness adapter for your new radio. Walmart sells many, car stereo shop will have more. This keeps you from cutting up your wiring in case you sell the car but keep your radio.

Putting in a new cd radio on Toyota echo 2003


need to match the wires in the car with the wiring for the radio.. find and mark what they are and connect them in this order...each speaker(normally 4) radio memory(stays on all the time) battery positive/with key on.. and ground wire usually black or brown..and the radio antenna as well.. these wires wont be identical colors but the funtion of these will be..match and connect.. and check before putting in the dash..for proper operation.. good luck and be careful..if the radio did not come with its own conector and wire pigtail.. get one from a stereo dealer that does custom installs..

Putting a new radio in my car, need to know what color wire what.


Here is a website you can go to find which wires are which. http://www.modifiedlife.com I would also suggest going to places like Car Toys and get a wiring harness to make your installation pain free. If you have the original factory harness for the old stereo still on, all that you would have to do is connect the harness to your new radio and plug it in to the factory harness. No cutting wires necessary.

All i want to know is what each wire does and for how i would install a radio.


when installing an aftermarket radio, you will have a wiring harness with the new radio. you will have to buy seperate an adapter harness for the vehicle you are putting the new radio in. these wires are usually labled. Just match the colors with colors. watch for solid colors and the wires with stripes on them. The solid ones are positive and the one with stripes are grounds. Its pretty self explanitory once you start doing it
