What is the year make model of your car?

The blue wires aren't stock. Someone could of had an amplifier installed and ran those blue wires from the radio to an amplifier. Might want to see where they ran those blue wires to.





Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.

That appears to be what's left of an aftermarket system that was removed and all the wires were cut. Good luck with that................

You got this car from SAM. That stands for Stupid (can you guess this word?) Moron. Sam is a big fan of car stereos and likes to install them himself. However, Sam is willing to blow $250 on a new deck but not the $15 that WalMart has the adapter kit for the wires. So Sam does it himself and hacks up wiring, puts those lousy wire nuts on and then sells it off to the next guy who ends up asking us about what has happened. My poor guy, you are the lastest victim of Sam.
