I have a 97 corolla DX plus and few days ago i tried to swap the stock stereo for a BOSS 835UI stereo. Once i was done, the new stereo worked for only 2 minutes and then it started smoking and eventually stopped working. I want to make sure before i put in the new stereo that i am connecting the right wires. Here is the wiring harness that i made for the stereo:
Stereo wiring diagram------------Corolla's wiring harness
Yellow (Constant 12 volts) <> Blue/Yellow (Radio Constant 12V+)
Blue (Power Antenna/Remote Turn on) <> Green (Radio Illumination Wire)
Red (Ignition ACC) <> Gray (Radio Switched 12V+)
Black (Ground) <> Brown (Ground)
Wires for speakers were very straight forward so those were not a problem. Except, there is White/Green wire which was connected in stock stereo with rear speaker's connector. What is this wire for?
There is one more problem, whenever i press the brake, interior lights come on with the brake lights and at night whenever i turn on the interior lights, brake lights stay on with them as well. As far as i know this is a ground problem but i need to know how can i resolve this issue? Is there a possibility that this problem might have caused the new stereo to smoke?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
