I have bought the new wiring harness, and attempted to hook up all the
wires as they were before however I have a stray orange wire that says
illumination but I have nowhere for it to go. This was all for installing
a new cd player, but I am back to the OEM radio until I can figure this
wiring thing out. If anyone can help that would be awesome. Thanks
In most if not all GM vehicles, a solid orange wire, controlled by
the headlight switch, is used for turning on any dashboard "night"
lights used with gauges, clocks, ashtray, glovebox, shift
indicators, etc. Your CD player may not need such a feed. Did the
OEM radio have an orange wire input ??
