Disconnected factory car stereo to install another stereo and now my car won't start. I think there was some sort of anti-theft device hooked to car stereo. What can I do? Cause I'm currently stranded.

Do you
have the same problem?

Did you try putting your original radio back in?

Already cut wires. Do you know which wire needs to be connected?

No, I need you to tell me the wires, the colors that you cut.

You may have blown a fuse. Start there first.

One has 7 wires and the other has 9 wires. The seven wires are: white with lt blue stripe, white with purple stripe, brown, blue, gray with red stripe, orange with yellow stripe and a black wire. These are on the one harness. Does that help?
