Audio Systems/Wiring harness


I need the correct wiring harness for a 2000 chevy impala. I purchased one from Walmart and stereo still won't come on but the factory works when I connect it back

I suggest you go to and go through their car outfitting sequence. There are a possible 2 or 3 different harnesses depending on the exact model of your Impala.

Also, got to and follow through their links for the harnesses.

You might end up at this page:

When you go to crutchfield, on the main search enter wiring harnesses; that will lead you to a click down for year, brand, model, etc.  If you follow that through it will guide you to the right harness for your car, I think.

Hope these possibilities will help you find the right one.
