Original radio wiring harness

I have a 1991 Volvo 240 and I am trying to install the original radio back in. Two aftermarket radios were previously installed and both stolen. The latest thieves ripped the radio from the dash pulling apart a lot of wires. I am able to get power to the radio, but the speakers are stumping me. I'm assuming the factory amp was bypassed when the aftermarket radios were installed. How do I get the OE radio to work again?

Google Volvo wiring diagram. They are available free. The diagram shows the wire location and colors. Otherwise, run a continuity test with a simple meter to discover a connection with some resistance between a pair of wires. If you here a click or two, from the speakers, you have found the right pair. Continue and label the pairs left, right, front,rear, until all are identified. Then reconnect. A pain but not rocket science.

After Market Radio Installation


Hey man, you have an amplified system. use a 70-1858 wiring harness and jump the blue/white wire from the aftermarket radio to the pink wire on the second plug. this will power on the factory amp with the aftermarket radio.

Removing dash of 2003 camry to replace radio


If your dash has not been modified by whomever installed the aftermarket radio, it should go like this:

Using a flat screwdriver, gently pry the bottom edge of the air conditioner control assembly to disengage the clips (there are 6 of them). Pull the control assebly out and disconnect the electrical connectors and set aside.

Remove the 4 bolts on the lower edge of the radio finish panel located under where the air conditioner assembly was located. Pry around the edges of the radio finish panel to disengage the 5 clips (two on either side and one at the top center) The finish panel and radio assembly will then pull out of the dash so the electrical connectors can be disconnected and the radio removed (again, this is providing that no modifications have been made).

Hopefully, you will find the vehicle wiring harnesses and radio mountings still intact. Many times, aftermarket radio installers will cut and splice several of the wires from the original radio connectors, And modify the mountings to accomodate a radio that was not made to fit the vehicle, making it necessary to repair the wiring harnesses and/or mountings before an original-type radio can be reinstalled.

You can buy aftermarket plugs that will plug in to your harness and have the radio wires on the new plug. This keeps you from cutting your harness and reinstalling your factory , if you decide to.

This is because you need to purchase the aftermarket-oem harness plug.This harness plugs into your original equipment radio harness and allows you to plug any aftermarket radio into the stock deck wires.After you plug the harness in you can then connect the radio wires together.Your local autoparts store or circuit city or best buy or audio express will have these radio conversion plugs.I hope I could help

Car audio wiring diagram for 1998 volvo s-70


CLICK HERE for your vehicles full service manual. If you are cutting wires.
Be warned your vehicle has a factory amplifier installed, and needs to be bypassed to hear the speakers if you are just wiring behind the dash.
Metra makes a harness you install on the aftermarket radio, then simply plug into the vehicle's harness.
All the wires are labeled for easy installation.

70-9220 is the metra part number. Click on the number to see an eBay auction.
