Generic wiring schematics seldom match the OEM wiring as to get the diagram the book publishers have to virtually strip down a vehicle as the diagrams are copy write protected. IN many cases the manufacturers of the vehicles change wiring harness suppliers and the OEM schematics will vary to your vehicle. When in doubt take it to an installer and have them fit it as diy people generally install incorrectly and produce faults in the CPU program

HI. there are shorts present within the wiring harness. I would recommend replacing the entire wiring harness, if possible. I would also check the actual fuse to be sure that there is no corrosion or connectivity issues within that particular fuse box connection that pertains to the radio unit.

When radio was stolen the wiring harness was cut. I have a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo and I need a diagram to match the colors to the after market radio wiring harness.

Best thing to do is go to a junk yard find the same truck and take the wiring harness off of it.Then go to wallmart and for 15.00 you cna buy a kit that just snaps into place

Need diagram.

Haynes manuals have all kinds of diagrams, but wire colors stated can NOT be trusted. they get close, but a voltage tester becomes your best friend. Do the dummy check and if you are removing a radio or something like that, check the top of the stock radio for pin identification, then just match up the wiring harness.
