    Needed: Stereo wire harness diagram!!!

    I need to find a wire harness diagram for the BOSE stereo system used in the 97 STS. There are no audio shops here that can get one for me. They've all tried and were unsuccessful. I even tried the local Cadillac dealership, and they were unwilling to look one up for me!!!! Can anyone help me find a site where I might get one? Or does anyone have one they can email me? I really need to get the wires in this system straight. Ill be selling the car soon, and im sure it would be worth a little more if the power antenna worked. But I cant figure out which wire is for the antenna. And im not about to go poking around in the dash with a 12V lead from the battery and fry something.
    Can anyone help? Or does anyone know which wires are which off the top of their head? Remember this is for the BOSE system.
    Thanks in advance to any one who replies.

    I don't want to steer you wrong here, so please keep in mind this comes from a 1995 owner. However, Cadillac often carries over design schemes through many revision years.

    For 1995 model year vehicles, the power antenna is operated from the trunk mounted radio chassis and it doesn't matter whether or not it's a Bose system. In fact, if you have the Bose system, the antenna power voltage is the same voltage that operates the 2 relays that power up the LEFT and RIGHT channel Bose power relays! I suspect it might be similar or even the same in your car.

    In that event, all the wiring is in the trunk.

    Note in the attached drawing that the radio chassis powers the antenna through a dark green wire. A second dark green wire denoted by the letter "A" enclosed in an inverted triangle goes off to power the 2 Bose relays that supply power to the speaker mounted Bose amplifiers.

    I'd expect you'd find something similar or, perhaps, even the same in your car.

    Regards,
    Warren

    Thanks for the help guys, but all I need to know is what's in the dash.
    James86coupe My email is : K_Kar_Kooter@hotmail.com if you can find anything that would be great.

    I really dont want to have to run new wires all over the car just to make a simple aftermarket stereo work. If I can figure out the wires in the dash I can hook the stereo up to the existing factory amps and be done with it.

    somebody posted schematics on here before, I have these saved on my hard drive but the size is too big for uploading to this message. There are 2 images, the antenna one is already given previously by Warren. I can email you the other. Hope this year will help you.

    Re: Needed: Stereo wire harness diagram!!!

    I recently changed out my factory radio in my 93 deville to an aftermarket Sony. I thought about have a radio shop install it, but I was being cheap they wanted approx. $65-75. Since I didn't purchase from them

    The solution I visited Circuit City.com and looked for a wire harness for my vehicle. THe part I purchesed pluged right into my harness within the dash.

    I went outside I already had my factory radio out plugged the harness in it fitted perfect. Only thing there were several wires coming from the aftermarket radio that I would have spent hours matching which wires went in each slot of the harness from the dash, So I went back into Circuit City and purchase another wire harness for my after market radio, and it went right in everything worked just like the factory radio including antenna.

    each harness was about $18
