Hey guys i just came across this site, seems worth being on
I took my cd player out of my exploder, bought the wiring harness for my 2000 dakota, and went to work.
I matched each wire as described ON the wires ( every single wire says what it is ) I then plugged in the new cd player and turned on the key, no results
In the dakota, there is 3 plugs plugged into the stock radio, gray/black/ground?
I plugged the Gray/Black into the wiring harness, and plugged the ground back into the stock radio ( just to see if it worked before putting the dash back together.)
Nothing happens, no power at all to my cd player....
HMMMM I thought, and I figured i screwed something up, blew a fuse etc.
So, I plugged the gray/black plugs back into the stock radio, still works -.-
I thought i had wired the harness incorrectly so i checked to make sure every wire was connected to the wire that said the same thing, they are.
So I guess my question is... Do i have to connect the STOCK ground plug into my ground wires on my harness? ( I figured that would be the same as grounding it to the stock deck? )
How can i tell if my cd player went to ****?
I think ive given the right info, if not lemme know and i will tell you!
PS. I taped the remote wire for now since i havent run my sub power wires from the battery.
Any help is much appreciated, thanks
