I'm trying to install an aftermarket cd player in my 05 wrangler x, but every wiring diagrams I've found are not matching up to the wires I have in my dash. I've got 2 wires with constant power and two wire that are showing ground, and only one showing switched power. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

did you cut your factory harness? i hope not...if you did test light & ohm meter will be your best friend and youll have to test every wire... never trust a diagram.. things can change. for instance mid model year etc.

if you didnt cut harness spend the $15 (if standard harness which i think it is) and buy a wire harness @ a car audio shop then all you have to do is match aftermarket harness to new one color for color.

some of these new vehicles if you cut factory harness your screwed.. bc alot of vehicle electronics run through radio....for instance. chevy cobalt... air bags, ignition, lights etc ect all run through factory radio... jeep is one of last companies to do this but alot of their newer vehicles do..
