You can find that at a walmart or a local car audio shop. Depending on the make and model of your vehicle will decide wether it is in stock or not. Good luck.

I need instructions to connect a JVC KD G230 TO A 2007 TOYOTA COROLA.

Get the harness for your car. Any local stereo shop will have it. Also pick up the dash mounting kit. It will have the instructions to take your dash apart.

My radio has all the bells and whistles. It is a large square box that an aftermarket radio will not fill. It seems to have no reception at all. when it gets warm it starts to recive but very weakly. ...

A used one will work, you can get the code at the dealer. As for aftermarket radios: standard aftermarket radio size is referred to as 1 din. Your stock stereo is 1.5 din. To install an aftermarket stereo in Amy car requires an install kit, in your case the kit will make up for the size difference by just filling the gap with black plastic. But there are aftermarket stereos that are 1.5 din. They will still require an install kit, but will completely fill the hole in your dash. If you're planning on getting a $99 stereo at a parts store don't bother and just find a stock one. But spend $150 on an aftermarket stereo and you'll be very happy. Good luck.

What kind of aftermarket dash kit do I need to

A dash kit is not needed, just a little modelling but not hard at all. The Factory double din radeo is a little taller than 4in so you need to space it out with a slim piece of mdf on the top and bottom of the new radio cage. Then the trim plate around the screen will fill all gaps perfectly.

How can i replace the manufacture radio in my car and replace it with aftermarket car stereo

You best bet, because of a warranty, is to have a professional shop install your stereo. But if you are like all of us guru's here, you like to get your hands dirty.

First you need to remove the dash around your factory stereo. Be patient here and try not to break any of the dash. You may need to remove screws and pop loose plastic retainers located on the backside of the dash.

Wire the after market stereo to the harness located below by maching the colors provided. Thank the stereo companies for making this simple. Use crimp connectors or solder your connections, which ever best suits you. Tape up any remaining wires with eectrical to minimize the chance of a short.

Take the metal sleeve provided by the sereo you choose and install it into the install kit located below. Once you have removed the factory stereo, test fit the install kit and attach any tabs neccessary provided by the kit.

Now take the aftermarket stereo and place into the sleeve you installe din the install kit until it clicks into its locks. Now, the harness you wired up earlier, plug it into the factory harness and then into you stereo. Hook up the antenna, you may need to purchase a antenna adapter. Now before you install the stereo, do a test run to make sure everything is working. Once you are content that it is all working, install the new stereo and then reverse the steps in removing the dash panel and stereo.
