Asked in Dodge Caravan
How do you wire a aftermarket stereo in 2005 dodge caravan?
The easiest option in the world would be to visit Best Buy or a local car audio store and buy a wiring harness for your vehicle. They are typically priced between $15-25. It will connect directly to the factory harness and MOSTLY match up color for color on the end that wires up to the aftermarket stereo. If in doubt have a professional install it.
Asked in Technology, Kia Spectra
How do i wire my car CD player in Kia Spectra?
Buy the Metra wiring harness adapter for your year Kia. Plug in the adapter to the factory wiring harness. Use crimp connectors, solder, heat shrink, etc to connect the wires from the car CD player to the adapter. Make sure no bare copper wires are exposed. Simply match up the wire colors with the CD player and adapter. Save your factory radio. You can quicky unplug the aftermarket harness and CD player and plug your factory radio back in when you sell the car. DO NOT CUT THE FACTORY WIRING. The factory wiring color codes are vehicle specific. If you cut the wiring already then take the car to a professional car audio shop and pay for your mistake to be repaired properly.

Asked in Chevy S-10
What color wire goes where when wiring an after market deck in your 1997 Chevy S-10?
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...
Asked in Lincoln Mark VII, Honda Civic DX, Radio
What is the wiring for a factory amp on a 1990 Mark vii that the harness has been cut out?
if this is like my 89 don't worry about the diagram if you don't have the amp. This is wrecking yard material. Find that car in a wrecking yard and then get the amp and the wiring harness and clip the harness so you have enough wire to splice the same colors together. Radio Shack has match melt solder strips and heat shrink tubing to make the splicing easy. Or at this point probably cheaper to just rewire the whole stereo system with an aftermarket system And if your thinking about using a mark 7 factory amp for somthing else you wasting your time most normal head units produce as much power as that, your question is a little unclear i guess is what im trying to say.

Replaced stock stereo in 01 Civic EX and now factory keyless entry do not work How to fix?
Go to www.installdr.com and they will walk you through it. You need an adapter for a non-Honda radio Answer Pagan Audio (on Ebay) as well as AUTOTOYS on the internet sell "Metra" wiring harness for around $10 ~ $15 That will match your factory harness so you won't have to cut and spice and also have a secondary plug which will plug into the car's factory plug and allow you to retain factory alarm/keyless entry and dome light. Answer The harness Pagan Car Audio (Ebay) does not work for a 98. The pigtail harness they sell has a "male" connector and so does the factory keyless entry/alarm harness from the car. You must cut the ground, 12V continuous (yellow) and the ignition (red) wires from both harnesses and connect them for there harness to work, a pain. Answer I had to keep my stock radio harness in the dash when i replaced mine. The keyless entry sensor is located in the harness.

Asked in GM and GMC, 1995-2005 Chevy Cavaliers, Radio
How hard is it to change the radio in a 2004 cavalier?
It is pretty easy, go to the stereo shop and buy the install kit as well as the wiring harness adapter for your vehicle. All you have to do is follow the directions and match up the wires of the new stereo wire harness with the adapter you have purchased. Remove the old stereo, install the mounting hardware. It should plug right in to the factory wire harness and snap in place.

Where can you find the diagram for the wiring harness for a 1988 Dodge Dakota to install a new radio?
you don't neccesarily need a wiring diagram if the stock plug is still there. when you buy a wiring kit for that specific vehicle the wires will be color coded to match up to the new radio (red to red, yellow to yellow etc). you just connect the wiring harness for your truck to the wiring harness for your deck and plug 'em in. if it's not there...you need a 12v constant, 12v switched, ground, and +/- spekaer wires for each set of speakers.

What are the car stereo wiring colour codes for a Pioneer Car Stereo?
Is the wiring harness on a 05 flhtpi different than one on a standard model?
Yes it is different. I have a 2004 FLHTPI. The wiring harness for the FLHTPI is set up for the extra lights and accessory plugs for the additional equipment/electronics that the police bike is outfitted with. I tried to install the air temp and oil pressure gage in the dash and could not match the schematics on the installation instructions to the wiring harness. I had to bring it in to have the gages hooked up. I plan to add a stereo and will run into the same issue with the wiring harness. I haven't found any good resources on the internet regarding solutions yet.

All depends. Typically you want to upgrade from stock to aftermarket. Decide your brand. Amazon for deals. Get the wiring harness for your model car also on Amazon. Remove stock, plug harness into stock. Match wires to deck (takes some skill to correctly do it. But smart person with internet access no problem). Thats first base simple change. -semi professional mobile electronics inst
