Hi!
I just registred after finding _the_ best swift info site on the net... hehe.

I got my drivers license just a couple of days ago, and I got my first car that very same day. It's my mom's old Suzuki Swift 1.3 GT -90, and I love it!
It's just one thing though.. It has a crappy stereo in it. It's an old pioneer tape deck, It can be taken out easyly out of an "casett" mounted in the dash. now.. I went out and ordered an new stereo deck with CD/mp3 features.. It's not any "great" brand but it did suit my economy :).

So... my questions are:

Is that deck (the pioneer) stock in that -90 swift ?
and how in hell do I get that casett insert out of the dash...
I have no clue how to wire all the things together but I hope it got an ISO-Standard connector or something..


Here's the CD I ordered incase anyone is interested :).

Thanks in advance!

All the Swifts I looked at had Clarion as the OEM stereo.

The deck comes out easily enough - once you locate and remove the screw locking the mount to the dash crossmember - the connectors are not standard, but don't let that stop you.

Pull the Pioneer and take a look see how it's been wired - maybe the installer reused the plugs from the original install, or maybe he cut & spliced. Personally I like to install new, heavier speaker leads, and only reused the power connections.

The original wiring should have two 4 way connectors for the speakers - one for the front, the other for the rear - and a 3 way connector for power, with a +12V switched, a +12V constant, and +12V lighting that you may or may not need, depending on the deck you're installing. The ground is done directly to the dash crossmember.

You can find the wire colors listed elsewhere in this forum

Thanks alot for the tip!

I managed to rip out the pioneer and the casett that was mounted in the hole.
There was alot of wires, I mean, damn it was like a jungle... I think the installer had "hotwired" the cables from the original cables, cause I managed to find the original "iso" cables with the two 4way speaker jacks and one that's a little smaller with 3 male pins...

btw, are the standard connectors like this:
one 4pin female, one 4pin male and one 3 pin male?

If so, I guess it's just off to buy a OEM to ISO converter cable to make it fit with my new stereo, wich is supposed to have the ISO standard connection.


Anyone have any more nice tips ? =)
you never know when you need them hehe.
