Factory Stereo Wires
#1
I was wondering, have any of you used your factory power wires for your aftermarket stereo and if so are you getting a lot of feeback or engine whine? What is the best place to pull the power wire power for a new stereo?

Has anyone ever used the factory wires for the power source for a modern radio?

Run a seperate wire to the acc on the fuse block. If your still picking up ignition whine (Which mine didn't). They make an in line filter/choke that will eliminate it at Radio Shack.

Yeah, after I replaced a aftermarket rats nest with a factory harness.

Its been awhile since I had my factory radio out, but I believe you can use bullit connectors on your new radio harness and plug right into the factory harness without cutting it. Hopefully someone else knows for sure.

That was my plan. Use the clamp on for the radio power cable and go directly to the fuse box for the clock and radio memory power. I have not put a radio in a car in over 2 decades and the last one I did the damn thing whined so badly I said I would never do it again. Thats my fear. When I do something it has to be perfect or I have to redo it over and over until it is and I hate doing things more than once. Anal retardation is what I think they call it.

Personally I use marine grade butt conectors with the solder and sealer in them. That way you don't have to worry about corrosion down the line. I bought a small pen torch at hell anywhere for like $13 flame is only about 1/4 in wide by 1 inch long
