Fitting a pioneer stereo

I bought a pioneer stereo thinking it would plug straight in to my FORD RAIDER but it doesn't. The ford has tow plugs and the stereo only has one. Can you help please?

Go to Ebay.com. In the search field, type in the year and model of your vehicle along with the words "stereo harness adapter". Way cheaper here and guaranteed to have them. Local stores are hit or miss. You could also cut the factory plugs out and manually wire the radio via a diagram but I strongly recommend not doing this, especially if you thought a Pioneer car stereo was plug and play to your Ford.

How do you hook a pioneer cd player up to a 1991 ford taurus gl sedan

You can go to Walmart or Best Buy and buy an adapter so the new stereo will fit, and they also sell an adapter to hook your pioneer wires up to a plug that just plugs in to your original stereo wiring.

PLEASE RATE by checking one of the four thumbs ups!

Can I install a Pioneer Avic Z1 into a 2002 gmc jimmy?if so is there a dash kit and wiring harness available?

Yes, that is the best way to go. Most local automotive stereo stores sell an installation kit that has a surround that the new stereo mounts in to and fits the space of the stock stereo, and also comes with a wiring harness that wires the new stereo to a plug that fits tthe car's stock radio connector.

Looking for part #'s of oem radio's that will work in this vechicle

I suppose your looking for a plug and play fit where you just buy it and fit it and leave it? well Pioneer stereo's have adapter fittings for alot of models and i think it would be worth your while checking that out. Pioneer also makes alot better radio's/ decks than the oem manufacturer radio that is for that vehicle. If you cant find the adapter for your vehicle, it will cost you around 40-50 bucks to have it installed properly.

I have a Pioneer DQ-4000 receiver. Honestly I am

I think what you are looking at is referred to as a banana plug connector. You do not need to buy these connectors to make this work. If you unscrew the plastic connector out far enough, a hole from the side opens up so you can put your copper conductor through and tighten the plastic peice down. The banana plug is probably better for easy connection but using this method is just as good.

Can't fit subwoofer amp leads to pioneer DEH-2000MP Head unit

pioneer head units only distribute like 200 rms or so to the speakers. you might have to find a blue maybe even blue with white striped wire and nick it just enough to tie your amp wire around it. tape it up and see if it works.
