    1994 Deville Installing Aftermarket CD Player

    ive had my 94 Deville for about 2 weeks now and ever since ive had it the old AM/FM/Tape deck has been in It so I decided to tear it out and put in a aftermarket cd player in it. when I pulled the old deck out I clipped all the wires but obviously left enough wire to wire up the cd player. anyways I was preparing to hook up the cd player when I got a stereo wiring diagram for a 94 Deville online. but a lot of the wire colors don't match up. like it said it was a pink wire for the electric antenna, and then there were a few different diagrams with numerous amounts of different colors for all the speakers. so im real confused about the whole deal. anyone have an actual good stereo wiring diagram I could see? thanks in advance

    =====================

    OH NO -

    I got a stereo wiring diagram for a 94 Deville online.
    but a lot of the wire colors don't match up.

    ya - no surprise there -

    so im real confused about the whole deal.
    what MIGHT be the easiest thing to do -
    re-attach the original plug -
    solder and use heat-shrink-tubing on each splice -
    then purchase the correct plug-in-adapter for your car -
    and simply plug the new unit in -

    when I said I clipped all the wires it isn't like I cut them all to where I didn't know where they went. my only issue is every single wiring diagram ive found has not matched up with the colors of my factory stereo wiring.

    Couple thoughts, what audio RPO does your car have. Did you compare to 93 wiring or 95, sometimes there is overlap. You shouldn't have to clip any wires... it will soon turn into a nightmare...
    Online diagrams are somewhat helpful but I have found few that are correct, get a FSM for wiring diagrams and it will answer all your questions.
