Stereo wiring instructions

I have a new stereo to fir into a 97 Golf CL unfortunatey when the original one was stolen they ripped out the connectors on the back so i just have the wires. I have the connecting loom to fit the new stereo but cannot see how to match the wires together as the colour coding is different.

How would i find out which wire is which so i can connect them together correctly?

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

Trying to install a new cd player in my 97 audi a4 but do not have a wiring diagram of the wires in the car


The easiest way to wire it is to get a pre-fit harness that fits the vehicle and stereo. Search the stereo's web site to find one.

I have a 1993 chevy lumina that I want to put a Clarion radio in, the original was stolen along with the wiring harness, so I only have bare wires exposed, what parts do I need to purchase?


You can purchase a small package of crimp connectors for the electrical connections. If the wires are exposed, you can connect them using this following list of connections.
These are the CAR's wiring (not the radio unit)
Car Radio Battery Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: Yellow
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Amplifier Location: N/A
Car Audio Front Speakers Size: 4′ x 6′
Car Audio Front Speakers Location: Dash
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Car Audio Rear Speakers Size: 6′ x 9′
Car Audio Rear Speakers Location: Rear Deck
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue
Look on the owner's instructions for the radio, the wiring diagram should be there. If not you can visit the clarion website with the radio model number to get the color codes for the radio wiring..
Simply crimp each to the correct corresponding wire. You may have a few extra.. the antenna power, or the radio mute.. just cap the ends of these..
