Customer Question
My question is very similar...
My question is very similar to that of customer Big dog. I am having a difficult time in finding certain wires which give power to a double din stereo that needs to be wired and installed. Problem is there isn't any car harness it had been cut off along with none of the cars wire colors. So far I have done a volt meter light test with engine off and on accessory. Off it seem to have a orange wire that's has 12v I'm guessing it's the constant power. And a dark green. One green with white has power to it while on in accessory. This is a 2002 Chevy Avalanche. Could I get your professional opinion and suggestions as to where to start and what to do. And I'll standby ready to inform you of any more details or answers you need that will help
