Question about Jensen CD4610 CD Player

1 Answer

Car radio I installed a aftermarket radio in my 91 dakota. I didn't buy a wiring harness and wired it straight. One problem though. Had an extra orange wire that works the dash lights that was in the original wiring harness. What can I hook it to, to make my dash lights work? Tried hooking with the switch wire for the radio and it blew the fuse for my tail lights.

How to install an aftermarket radio in a 2004 Chevy C2500


You will need a wiring harness for the model truck you have, plus a filler kit. The filler kit is what the radio will actually attach to and fill the space left by the factory radio. Follow the diagrams for wiring from the harness and the aftermarket radio. Generally, there are 8 wires to be connected for a four speaker system. In addition, you will connect a ground wire (black), a yellow wire (constant power), a red wire (this is to turn the radio on and off with the ignition), and a solid orange wire (illumination). Because you have a GM product you will also need an antenna adapter. All these things can be purchased at Best Buy, or WalMart.

I have a BMW 318i 1993 and when i got it there was a big speaker and amp hooked up. I unhooked it but now i cant get any sound....the radio lites up but no sound. i know speakers work cuz they worked...


Hello pinkpimpin20,

Without knowing exactly what modifications were made to the factory sound system, it's difficult to point you to a particular fix. The number of channels on the "big amp" that you disconnected would help. Even the make and model.

But, from your description it's possible that the previous owner installed a multichannel amp to drive both the "extra bass speaker", usually referred to as a subwoofer, and the original vehicle speakers. In that case, the speaker wiring from the head unit (receiver) was cut and the receiver side of the wires was rerouted to the input of the aftermarket amp. The output of the amp was then connected to the other ends of the speaker wiring.

To restore to the original, you need to pull the stock receiver and resplice the wiring. If the previous owner cut the plug completely, it may be necessary to purchase a replacement from your BMW dealers service or parts department. It's possible, but not likely that the previous owner used both an aftermarket "harness" and an aftermarket "reverse harness" to avoid having to cut the wiring. In that case, all you'd have to do would be remove them and plug the radio harness back into the vehicle harness (or the back of the radio). But most DIY audio enthusists don't mind butchering the vehicle wiring. And you'll probably find that electrical tape was used to secure the wiring. After a year or so under the dash, it'll be a sticky mess to unravel.

The speaker wiring colors for the '93 318i are as follows:

Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Yellow/Red
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Brown/Orange
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Black/Red
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Brown/Orange
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Yellow/Black
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Black/Orange
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Blue/Black
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): Brown/Orange

Hope this helps.

What color is what when installing a car stereo in a 91 Grand Marquis?


you can go to your nearst car audio shop and buy a harness that will plug into your factory plug, which will allow you to wire directly into it with your aftermarket radio harness which is color coded to match. the reason i recommend this is b/c some of the marquis are factory amplified. although i have included some wiring info for your car, be sure to test all wires with a digital meter first.

Stereo turns off when headlights turned on


Sounds like you have the ground for the radio hooked up to the illumination ground wire. Check for orange or orange/black wire coming from the radio harness. Did you buy the harness for the car as well? If so then just match all the colors of wires from the car harness and the radio harness. By car harness I mean the harness that plugs into the harness that the original factory radio plugged in to.

Thanks
