One of the easiest and quickest ways to do this, is to go to an audio store and buy a wire harness. It should plug right into the factory plug (providing that it is still intact) and then plug into your new radio. If not, it will have ready to go wires for the harness that came with your radio.

What will cause a 1991 Dodge Spirit factory radio to short out even with a new power cable and a new ground possibly the antenna?

The antenna wouldn't cause it to short out, that just helps it receive the signals to play music on the radio... How old is the radio... if it is factory from 91 then it might of been its time to go... i have a radio from a 90 Dodge Caravan, same as whats in your Dodge Spirit cause they carry the same radio and it short out on its own where the numbers and stuff wont light up but will still play music... I took the radio out of my 92 Dodge Spirit and put it in the van (since the trans went out in the 92 Spirit) and it works great... it might of just went out because it was ready to go.

first you have to pop the cover off that's around the radio and then remove the 2 screwes that holds the radio. second unplug the wire connector from the radio. you also need a stereo connector for your aftermarket CD player to connect to the existing wire connector. once you have installed the connector to your CD player you need a installation kit for a 2000 dodge stratus to put your CD player in and bolt it to the existing holes your radio came from. plug your connectors and antenna wire together and reinstall your 2 screwes and pop your cover back on and you are done.
