Durabrand Db1200 installation

We bought this am/fm cd player to put in my daughters 2000 SL2 Saturn, but the wire harness is different. I do not have the instructions. Can you tell me what color wire goes to what? Thank you,

    Installing a Durabrand db1200 into a ls 2000 Saturn. I have power but, there is no sound coming from the speakers. The color codes on the indash harness connectors has two orange wires which do not have a corresponding color wire on the db1200. Where do I go from here?

If anyone STILL needs the pin outs for the Durabrand DB 1200 AM/FM radio/CD player, I spent most of the afternoon reverse engineering the radio to get them. Below is the solution using a canabalized and modified (trimmed) ATX PC Mother Board power connector.

Looking at the radio from the rear, with the 12 pin connector in the lower left corner, pins 1 thru 6 are left to right top row, pins 7 thru 12 are left to right bottom row. Pinouts and wire colors are as follows:

PIN CLR FUNCTION
1 RED +12 V FROM IGNITION KEY ON/ACC
2 RED +12 V FROM BATTERY (FUSED)
3 WHT LEFT REAR SPEAKER +
4 BLK LEFT FRONT SPEAKER +
5 BLK RIGHT FRONT SPEAKER +
6 BLK RIGHT REAR SPEAKER +
7 YEL GROUND
8 VIO +12 V SWITCHED - FOR PWR ANT OR AMP
9 GRY LEFT REAR SPEAKER -
10 BLK LEFT FRONT SPEAKER -
11 RED RIGHT FRONT SPEAKER -
12 BLK RIGHT REAR SPEAKER -

I hope someone can use this information. If you have questions, email me at [email protected] and include "DB 1200" in the subject field so I don't send it to spam. I can email you a modified installation wiring diagram in pdf format if you desire.

I have a 1992 Saturn, took out the old radio, want to install a panasonic am/fm/cd player. I have a yellow wire from harness that is hot, and a black wire that is hot. I need to know how all these wires...


Yellow wire should be your remote turn on/12V source and the black is typically a neutral or ground wire. You should be able to connect to your car adapter wire for wire and the ones aren't being used I would just cut it and put black electrical tape around the end.

Best and FASTEST WAY TO DO THIS:

Go to walmart or BB and buy a car adapter for your factory wiring (it will click onto the existing factory harness) THEN match the colors...you're good to go!

Your best bet on that one is to go to a place that sells car audio systems or even some autoparts retailers have them,and get the proper adapter harness already made up. A few more dollars but, a whole lot less headaches.

the easy way is to buy a 5$ harness from pepboys or a auto stereo store ask them a harness for your make and model car to hook up a after market radio that harness will plug into your factory harness also the new harness will give you a wire diagram telling you what wires are what if you dont know about what wires are what on your after market radio they are sometimes listed on the top of the radio its real easy most radios are red power yellow aux -only power when ignition is on and black ground speakers are most of the time one color for all negitive and multi colored for positive good luck I hope this helps good luck....
