aright just to get u guys thinking bout this, let me try to explain the situation (im in school right now so the pic wont be up for a while)
theres two orange wires coming from the harness that goes into the radio (i dont even know if those are the original colors, maybe that bastard changed em?). okay so let me call em orange1 and orange2. so orange1 is then 'split' and theres a blue (remote lead) and red wire going from there. the red wire goes to power the cd changer along with another yellow wire, which initially comes from orange2. the red wire from orange1 is merged with another red wire that goes to my fm modulator, which has a different yellow wire that is connected to an on/off switch (the yellow wire might actually be the ground, but im not sure). my only concern is this: what are these two orange wires and how do i connect them back to OEM-style? after doing this, i would want to find the antenna trigger, which i blv is the pink wire, correct? but, i dont remember seeing a pink wire on the harness that goes into the radio. i think the pic will definitely help...ill try to take that pic asap and post it up.
thanks for all of u who read and tried to make something of this...i appreciate it
