Installing an after market stereo

Fist off you will need an old wire coat hanger. Using some wire cutters cut out four straight pieces about 8cm's long. They need to be long enough to be pushed through the four small holes on the standard stereo.<br />

Re: Installing an after market stereo

You can always take the 'ignition controlled' wired off of your cigarette lighter. A was searching under the hood but there doesn't seem to be an switched wire anywhere other than the cigarette lighter inside.

Here's a double-din version I've built in my car. It's a JVC AV-61BT.

Re: Installing an after market stereo

I took out my standard Fiat radio / cassette player plus the metal cage and installed the new facia . . . all fine up to this point. The aftermarket stereo appears to have no live feed to it . . . its as dead as a door nail. The Fiat stereo worked fine and the aftermarket stereo worked ok until I installed it in my 2004 Stilo.

I did notice on my previous Stilo, where the aftermarket stereo originated from, that one of the thin wires leading into the back of the stereo had been cut and paired with another. Does this make sense to anyone?

Any suggestions would be helpful. . . . . Kevin

Re: Installing an after market stereo

But using option 2 only allows to listen to radio with the key in?
