if its anything like my 92 ranger you take the dash apart around the radio and the stereo should unscrew, in my ranger the new cd player went in without any extra harness as it was the same size as the stock, if not you can but harnesses to go where your old stereo did, to connect the speakers you can buy a ford wiring harness from walmart or any store with an audio department. these plug in to your vehicles wiring harness so you don't have to cut it out, after that you simply match colours from the wires of the new cd player to the wiring harness
YES.... to prevent cutting of any factory wiring (this use to be the old install method and requires much more time and expense) and potential electrical fires, you can now buy quite cheaply, what is called a Radio adapter harness.
As you wish to install a Kenwood radio to your Toyota Scion, simply buy an adapter loom which has a 2005 Toyota Plug on one end, with a Kenwood plug on the other (this essentially replaces the wiring loom that came with your Kenwood unit).
So, it's that easy .... Plug and Play.
And... if you sell your Toyota and wish to put your old Toyota radio back in, the original radio just plugs back in. PRESTO !
Generally, the way I put an aftermarket cd-player in, is to use a new 'harness adapter' that connects to the old harness and has all of the wires color coded and labeled for easy installation of a new radio using wire nuts. I wouldn't try to cut into the existing harness, without knowing what was what.
What's the 'little plug thing' off of the grey wire?
Im quessing you are trying to install a sony radio into your jeep. The question is do you still have a plug on the wires in the dash? Or has the plug been cut off? If you still have the plug-you can buy a wire harness from Best Buy or Crutchfield or any car stereo shop that will match the wires for you. If you need more info on how to install this radio without the harness, e-mail me cuz it's alot of typing for nothing if you don't.
i'm not sure what part is broken from your description but i will try to help...
you can purchase something called a reverse harness that looks identical to your vehicle's OEM harness that plugs into the factory radio. the only difference will be the wiring color on the new harness will be standard aftermarket wiring (ie 12volt yellow, ign red, ground black, etc.) and if you cut each wire from the OEM harness and solder it to the reverse harness location for location then the new harness will be good to go. i would personally do this as a single wire at a time so you are not staring at 16 cut wires going to the new harness. check at Best Buy and see if they carry the 71-1770 Metra wiring harness and that will be the one you need as the reverse harness and if you are installing an aftermarket radio get the 70-1770 also. if you aren't comfortable with all this your local installers should be able to do this job for you pretty reasonably.
you must buy a wire harness connector from best buy or another dealer with knowlege and parts available / ps with this connector you just connect the wires from the radio to the connector following the color diagram and then snap on the connector to the car plug and it will work..
you will have to go to the gm garage and ask for the wiring diagram to match the wires up. but the way to fix it the right way is to go to the junk yard and cut the harness out of a car and splice the wires back together then go to wall mart or best buy to get the right wiring adapter then you can match them colors up to your new radios wires and plug into your car
If your installing a stock radio/cd player from another Dodge the wiring plug is the same and will fit.If your installing a aftermarket radio/cd player(JVC,Pioneer,etc)you will need to buy a adapter plug that wires up to the radio and is a direct fit to your factory wire harness,so your not cutting your wires.When you buy the adapter plug it comes with a wire diagram of which wire is what.Your aftermarket radio should have a diagram also,either on it or in the manual.Hope this helps you.
