Need help with electrical and security issue , car will not hold charge or crank.

Asked by Aug 14, 2017 at 09:26 AM about the 2001 Chevrolet Impala

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

An idiot friend of mine said they could install a new radio for me.
He did not use the adapter kit. He cut all the wires .

Hooked up the new radio , only worked with headlights on .
He took the new radio out . Reconnected the wires to the harness ?

Now the car will not hold a charge or crank without a jump. The security light
is on. and can someone please tell me what the orange wire is for ?

I am a college student with a tight budget . If i can't fix this I have no way to
get to school 22 miles from my home .

Any advice will be helpful ,
