I don't know if the American wire harness is the same as the euro but atleast in the euro one the colors are as follow,

right front speaker blue and aqua (blue +)
left front speaker pink and purple (purple +)
right rear speaker red and white (red +)
left rear speaker yellow and black (black +)
then you should have 4 -5 wires left the gray one is ACC (ignition remote)
the blue one with the yellow line is constant +
and then thy heaviest gauge wire left is -

these colors are written here by memory i can not say if they are 100% correct, i know the rear speakers are 100% i know the pairing of the front speakers are 100% i think this is the polarity of the speakers, ether it is blue and purple or pink and aqua that i know for sure, and the ACC and constant I'm not completely sure about, but the colors are as i sayed, one is heavier gauge than the other and that one is constant +, but i recommend that you go and buy a wiring harness or a wiring harness that has the ISO standard end on the of the harness and the touota plug on the other, cus most cd players u buy now a days have the ISO standard plug on them.

You can get something called a wiring harness from Walmart (or any place that sells car audio equipment). you plug it into the factory connection that would normally go to the back of the radio, and it has the wires labeled and color coded with what goes where. most times all you would need to do is match up the colors from the harness to the new radio you're trying to install. it makes it really easy to install after market radios, which im assuming you're trying to do.

I would guess that GM didn't hook these wires up to the factory stereo, as the factory stereo may not have the front back fade feature. They put the wires in to save you time if you decide to put another stereo in. Look under the dash, you will probably see the other end there. I'm not sure about this. Just a guess, but my tractor trailer is set up that way, and I only have 2 speakers, but wires are run to all possible speaker sites. Good luck.

I have a 97 vti-s that somebody ripped the factory stereo out and left bare wires i have 13 wires - 12 of which i know and a yellow/black one that i need help finding what its for


some times factory stereos have extra wires that when installing an after market stereo might be extra. if you have your 3 power wires figured out, your speaker wires figured out, and remote start amp wires, then your good. it is possible that it is a wire that turned the light on the factory stereo when lights were turned on in your car. hope this helps, goodluck

It's actually not too hard when you figure everything out. I just installed an aftermarket stereo and couldn't get any sound until I stumbled across a solution on this site. First you need to get the correct wire harness which I bought on ebay for $1.99. Then you need to get the install kit. I got mine at Radio Shack for $10.00 cause they're going out of business. You can get it at Best Buy too or any other car stereo place. To get the old stereo out. Take out the cup holder. There is a button on the top rear of it that releases it. Then remove the 2 screws at the bottom. Gently pull the entire trim that surrounds the stereo, cd changer and ac controls. You will now have access to removing the stereo. It's very easy after that. After you connect the wire harness and install the new stereo you need to run a wire from the red ACC wire on the stereo to the NBS relay in the fuse box under the hood. That's it! Good luck. Sorry I have no pictures.

Stereo wiring


You might save yourself a lot of headaches by stopping by a car stereo sales/installation place, and ask for wiring adapter harness. They should have an adapter plug that goes from your factory plugs to the new stereo. $10-$20 well spent. You may even find what you need at an auto parts store that sells stereos too, or radio shack.
