SOURCE: replacing factory radio

I am not sure what kind OEM radio yu got? sometimes the factory radio is floating ground, you must becareful, do not touch any wireto your car body.

First check the speake wire, use a 9v battery touch the speaker wire + and -to find out which is which and then one by one connect to your OEM radio and turn on and find out if it is a correct side or front and back.

hope this can help you a little bit.

SOURCE: Radio wiring ford xg ute

On new systems, like the one you bought to replace old one: grey and white are front, purple and green are rear. New wires should be labelled or shown on diagram on radio body. Stripes indicate negative side of speaker.

On your old loom: cut back behind plug, and strip wires at ends. Isolate power and grounds, and any that go hot EVER! Now checking just the remaining wires, use a AA or 9-volt battery, and touch pairs of wires to opposite poles of the battery. If you touch two that go to the same speaker, you will hear a slight static sound at that speaker: label these for that speaker, and so on. Once you get the pairs seperated and labelled by speaker location, the negs will be the striped ones, though you may not find they all have stripes. once you pair them, test in both polarity positions, the correct one will sound better right away. Should be able to reach max volume with little buzz or distortion. If not switch pow and neg sides. Hope this helps, TT

SOURCE: need the speaker color wires

Unfortunately all the photos I have are black and white. The method I use is to look at the speakers themselves and get the colors from the speakers. This has the added advantage of giving you the ability to make sure you have them hooked up in the correct order.
