Hey,
hope you can help me ;-)

i m writing from Mallorca Spain and I have the car listed above. The previous owner of the car changed the amp into an aftermarket 2 channel amp. Now I have a broken 1999 model for parts with an original amp. The problem I have is, that the amp from 99 has different connectors and more wires than my car has. I reconnected all the wires and it is working but the amp now drains my battery when the car is off and the key is taken. I could nott find the mistake.
Do you have any idea where I made a mistake?
Oh, sorry if I have any writing mistakes. ;-)

Hello,

You have a constant hot wire wired in to a switched power should go. On aftermarket stereos the yellow wire is the constant hot wire and the red is the switched power. Aftermarket amps also use a remote start wire that is also a switched power wire. This is usually a blue wire. I have included for you in the diagrams below the stereo wiring diagrams for both the 1996 and 1999 Chrysler Seabring's, so you can match which wire should go where. Get back to us and let us know how it turns out, please.

Thanks,
Alex

Thanks for your fast reply.
But I removed the aftermarket amp out off the car and installed the original infinity amp. The problem is, that my Sebring is a 1996 model but the amp comes from a 1999 model and seems to be different. I connected the wires from the original amp to the cars wires color by color. So I don t have any aftermarket supplies inside.
At the cars wires there are two yellow black one s do you think that this can be the problem?

Hello again,

I don't see a yellow/black wire on either the 96 or 99 wiring diagrams. I do see a yellow/blue wire on both. Could these be these wires?

Thanks,
Alex

Hey,

Thanks for answering. I put you the picture again in here where I marked the wires I mean.
Those two wires have the same color yellow black or blue. Maybe it helps.

Hello again,

Okay, I'm not sure of the question. You have what wires go where for both vehicles. Simply match the wires from the your 96 and connect them to the wires from the 88 diagram to where they would be going if you where hooking up a 96. If the right front speaker(+) id gray/blue on the 96 and it is gray/red on the 99. Then take the gray/blue wire coming from the pin associated with it on the diagram and connect it to the gray/red coming from the connector of the speaker. Repeat this process until all the wires are connected and you are done.

Thanks,
Alex
