You will need to get a wire harness kit that is made for the type of stereo that you have and the car you drive. For instance, I have a 2003 Honda civic. The 2003 Honda civic is equiped with an Aiwa brand stereo stock. I'm not sure if this is for all civics, but for the 2003 Civic they installed Aiwa brand (my 2004 Suzuki Aero is equipped with a Clarion stock). Now, If I were to buy an Aiwa brand stereo wiring would be no problem, I would unplugg the old stock stereo and install the new one, but i hate Aiwa and I wanted to install a kenwood. Now I have two choices, 1) Buy any kenwood wiring kit and splice the wires (cut the old wires and cob job the rest, which I later found out take time and practice) or 2)buy an expensive hard to find Aiwa to Kenwood wiring adapter ($100 or more). I decided to splice the wires. Luckily my brother knows how to do this and he did it for me, but he told me that he ruined about three stereos before becoming a pro at it. The best thing to do is unplug your car battery, but since he was an expert we skipped that part. Also, air bags can explode if you were to short a wire. I did it myself on my Suzuki with success with out unpluging the battery. Just make sure you can read a wire chart and always connect the power wire last (keep your car off). Now the next step is to get the stereo chasis to fit. The best thing is to look at other cars of your type and see how they were installed and look. Every stereo is installed and will look different. The Civic and the Suzuki stereos are connected to a curved molded dashboard so I had to be creative. Flip face stereos seem to be the best because the hide into the dash. Other stereos will stick out a bit. .
