How do you get all the wires to fit when instaling an aftermarket CD deck in a 94 Aspire?

Owning a 96 Aspire, and being a mobile electronics installer, this answer is 100% correct. Unless ur installing a crappy JVC or Jensen head unit (which have an abundance of wiring on the back) you should be able to stuff the wires behind the stereo fairly easily.

This is the way I did it personally when I put my aftermarket CD player in it. Got my stereo pullers (about 4 dollars at Wal-Mart), yanked the old one out, wired up the stereo to the adapter, hooked it up to the car, and when you've got everything hooked up, if you reach behind everything, there's a little crook to stuff all the wires in. I just did that and it fit like a dream. Granted, I had to get my girlfriend who has smaller hands than me to do it for me, but still.

remove the speaker covers from fear deck. remove the four screws that hold the speakers in the rear deck. four screws hold each speaker in place. unplug the wires from the connecters. if aftermarket speakers cut after plug and splice new speaker wires into existing factory wires. reverse the procedure to install new speakers.

Security is in the deck. You will be replacing it with a new deck so the security features in the old deck will not be a problem.

The deck has to be a aftermarket deck. On the wiring harness, you will see a blue wire that says rem. Hook it up there and you should be good

yes as long as it has the amp remote and the two audio cables

You have to buy the wiring harness for the new deck the connect the corresponding wires

User Avatar

you have to remove the pastic face plate that surrounds the radio unit, (few screws) once done remove the face plate, and should have 2 bolts holding the radio in undo those and pull out radio then disconnect wires accrodingly

That depends. There should be two red power wires on the back of an aftermarket deck. One will be 'constant' power, the other will be 'switched' power. The 'constant' one always has power, so that radio stations and other settings aren't erased when the vehicle is turned off. I'm assuming you're not using an adapter harness to connect the aftermarket deck directly to the GM radio harness.(always the preferable option) Most of the time(when not using an adapter harness) I will locate a pre-existing wire in the dash that is 'constant', and tap into that for the 'constant'. The 'switched' power can be connected to the factory radio's 'switched' power source. You'll have to figure out which wire that is in the GM harness and connect to that, or (not so ideally) cut that wire and connect it to the deck.

Ive installed some aftermarket decks in late model mazda's , try wiring your own ground to get the dash lights back... seems the wire that the factory deck grounded with acts as a relay or something with a negative signal running through it

the rem slot on your amp to the rem trigger on your deck (blue wire on most aftermarket desks)

Remove rear deck lid, use a 9/32 socket to remove screws, remove wires, reinstall them onto new speaker, reinstall the screws and the rear deck lid...

User Avatar

Mine does, rear deck, can see it from the trunk, lots of wires going to it

User Avatar

if you bought a kit there should be a small blue wire that has a posative and negative terminal to it...there should be a hook up at the back of ur deck with the terminal openings where the wires will connect...the wire might not be blue but in most cases it will be.. after that its easy to hook up to the amp

User Avatar

Yep you can you just order a new plate and it takes out the stock deck and keeps in the a/c controls and stuff the plate is around 50 bucks sites like crutchfield have it

User Avatar

It may be related to the colors of the wires for color coordination when installing the Clarion deck.

User Avatar

Take the door apart, unscrew the speaker and there are the wires. They run from there to the back of your stereo system. If you pull out your deck you can see the other ends there

User Avatar

if it is an after market deck you must have the dash wires not hooked up behind the deck, and for the fuse replace it....

User Avatar

You should check the fuse inside the truck it is either on the driver side by the door or under the dash on the driver side If you have an aftermarket deck and the fuses are good in the trucks fuse holder there is one behind the deck. To access it you have to pull out the deck. Any stereo shop can find it and replace it for you.

The factory subwoofer is actually a 9 1/2" Free air subwoofer. Aftermarket would be a 10". the mounting space available is 11 1/2" inches. So when you buy one aftermarket make sure you have enough room.

You should remove the factory car radio. It really is inexpensive. Just remove it, put an aftermarket alarm in, and an aftermarket deck. Any other attempts or circumvents usually cause problems. I have a 97 civic and that process is exactly what I did and it was the best decision I have ever made.

Yes. Of course you can. I recommend going to Walmart of or any other store that sells car stereo do it yourself products and buy a wiring plug for that year of car. You match up the wires on one end of plug to factory wires under dash and then match up wires from back of CD player (stereo plug) to the wires on the other side of plug. Then connect the plugand insert player. The factory wires will not match up to the wires from stereo plug and can be confusing (because for example there are 5 factory wires that you will need to match to the 3 stereo plug wires just to get power to the deck) and this way you won't accidentally hook wrong wires up and possibly fry your deck or cause a short in the car's electrical system.

you need to make sure that you purchased the right harness for your year and model, (i have a 2005 impala and just did this about 3 months ago). make sure that you splice the right wires for each speaker into the harness that you bought for you car (NOT the CD Player Harness), note that the speakers and all the wires you need to splice will be the same colors as the ones that you are splicing them into. then you will need to install a dash CD player instillation kit, or a deck. afterwards, your CD player should be running right.

best bet would be to not cut any wires at all. you can buy a wiring harness from wal mart and it costs maybe 15 bucks. the plug fits with the factory plug in the truck and all the wires that connect from this harness to your deck match as long as your deck isn't too old leave the factory plug in your truck it is alot easier and you wont have to worry about it shorting out...
