not sure what plugs what, but you need to hunt down the wire (with a test light) that only has power through it when the ignition is on .. than find the second wire, which will have constant power.. the one that only has ignition power goes to the yellow wire on your head unit normally, and the constant goes to red.. although refer to your user manual for the cd player.

 

from there just guess what wires are the speaker wire, and which side is which wires etc.. i usually just chop the whole harness off and solder wires from there.

take a run off the cig lighter for the +switched

+ battery will need a new line from the battery WITH a fuse

run new speaker leads as the factory ones are crap

-ground just screw into a metap part near the headunit to the body

I have found its ALWAYS better to run new wiring when doing an aftermarket stereo install. The old thin wires they use for factory stereo's back in the day were not made to handle the amount of juice we want to run through it.

You might end up blowing fuses, melting wires, or just totally crap sound.

fresh is always best! :)

I ran my own constant power direct from the battery . And then Spliced accessories from the defogger button for the rear window .

 

Worked perfect
