'99 Neon Highline Stereo Problem

02-23-2010, 01:40 AM
I just bought a '99 Neon and am wanting to install a new head unit but cannot find a wiring kit for it in stock. Found one online but am really wanting to just skip it cause I have the time and patience to bypass the plug-ins so I can get it hooked up within a month.
So can anyone post or desribe a wire diagram for a '99 Neon stock stereo?
If it's easier you could just tell me what colour each wire is.

There are kits all over the place. Just go to your local audio store and buy one. It should be about $25 and makes installation so EASY!

I now have the kit but when I tried to put it in the stereo won't work, but the stock one still does. I have triple checked the wires so I assume the head unit is messed up, even though I got it from Walmart, brand new.
Any other possibilities?

You might have the wires connected correctly, but are they making good contact?

Yep. Double checked, even rechecked my ground on my battery in case the old stereo was getting by with a bad ground because it's lower wattage....
