I don't know if it ever had the Infinity, I bought it used with a custom job installed. But the factory wiring harness is still there.

I have been working on the oem radio in my '97. I googled for a schematic and was unable to find one exactly like mine (non-infinity.) What I did find after much reading is that though the pin locations found in many diagrams didn't match my harness plugs, the color codes are fairly consistent. I used a meter to check for resistance (4 ohms, I believe) to find speaker pin locations and test wiring for shorts, easier than chasing wires. I have forgotten whether it is the front or the rear, but one pair has the positive lead in one plug and the negative in the other.

I, too, would like to have an actual schematic for my non-infinity setup.

Go here.......www.installdr.com. Just do a search for your model and you'll find detailed write ups for installation and wiring. Many people here have used that site for help.

Thanks for the advice, everyone. I ended up doing a search on JF and found the right image for my ZJ. It turns out I blew out a bass block in one of my crossovers, so I had to disconnect my tweeters. Sacrificed my high end, butt least I can listen to music now.

That definitely helped, but unfortunately since locating the problem I've corrected it and bought new crossovers...I apparently blew mine out some how. However, the same issue popped up, and I apparently can't run tweeters through my driver side door. Is there a wire connection for tweeters under the forward/top dash panel where it looks like you're meant to mount them in those empty vents? I may try wiring through there before I give up entirely.

If you originally had the base system the wires should be under the panel unless the previous owner did something with them on the new system install. Unfortunately, even if there they dead end into the connector block adjacent to the BCM. Connectors C351 and C307 as seen in the diagram. They are parralell{?} to the full size speakers.

Since the new install of the system before you bought it it will be difficult to troubleshoot from here. Sounds like almost that the system is pumping too much power and blowing the crossovers. But thats just a guess.In my laredo I just ran two wires parralell to each door spreaker at the radio to supply the instument panel speakers.

The upper pic is of a base system without a amp.

Got it all figured out guys, thanks for the help. The issue was being cause by a feedback loop due to the tweeters in my 2-way door speakers. Ripped em out and stuck some 300W Pyle mids in the front door, whole new Pyle component setup in the back, and she's all good. Sounds ten times better, too.
