Trying to hook up after market radio inside my 2005 chevrolet impala using a wire harness but it will not come on. I had another radio installed before this one but someone broke in my car and stole it. I have checked all of the fuses but getting not power. I asked around and was told that I have the right wire harness but it needs to be hooked up a different way for it to work. Can anyone help me with this problem and tell me which wires have to be crossed.

I had the same issue. You have to run the red power wire to a suitable 10 amp fuse in the fuse panel. Just remember that when you look for fuses, you connect to one that is not "hot" at all times. Meaning connect to one that operates off the key o ... 2005 Chevrolet Impala

I am trying to hook up an aftermarket stereo to my 2008 mitsubishi lancer. the wiring harnesses (metra 70-7005 and mito-02) that i have do not appear to line up with the mitsubishi wiring. when turned on, there is no power coming to the stereo.


Power to most radios is the red wire and ground is black. Do not mix up the two and make sure your plugs match "red for red" and "black to black" (the ground some times will also be green). If not you can blow a fuse in your box which you might nee ... 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer

1996 Buick Riviera mirror switch getting no power to the switch. No blown fuses anywhere. I've checked fuses under the hood, under the rear seat, at the fuse panel on the left side of the dash. With door panel removed there is no voltage coming into the switch. Most GM's use the orange wire as the in-coming hot wire. None of the wires in the harness are hot coming in. Next I'll be looking for a broken wire. Any other suggestions? Any idea which fuse is supposed to supply power to the switch? Non

I just installed a Sony cd deck into a new 2009 hyundai accent. I spliced the harness onto the built in harness supplied with the car. I cant get the stereo to power up unless the headlights are turned on. I used the wire color code from an online site that seemed to make sense. basically red to red, black to black but I did not ground to frame. I just used the black wi re from the harness. I did not confuse the red and black speaker wires with the power and ground wires.

WHAT DO I DO WITH THESE TWO WIRES? Thanks so much Kev


I have no idea about the wire that puts out gear position lights. But the one that makes dash be on constantly, is the memory wire for radio. You do need continuous power for radio to remember stored radio stations, audio adjustments and last source ... 2002 Honda Accord

I tried all the fuses, there is no illumination wire to the stereo, the bulbs are good, and i havn't seen any relays for it. I kn
