Re: need to know colour for main live wire for radio
I take it you don't have access to a test light? No being sarcastic, but if no color can be confirmed, for $5.00 at autoparts store or hardware store, it will help you find it, and certainly come in handy in future.

the wire colours bore no resemblance to the colours that were shown in the manual so I used a voltage meter to find out which wire was my permanent live, which was my ignition live and which was my earth/negative. As I already knew the colour codes for the speakers from the radio I was installing it was just a processes of elimination to get them in the right order
work it out with a meter ,,,,find perm 12v feed neg and pos ---yes could be any coloured wire depending on car maker,after finding perm 12v feed for memory look for pos from ign switch,now speaker wires are easy as both will be same colour for a speaker but one will have a band through it if not sure or colour blind like yours truelly then use pos and neg on speaker wire till you hear a thump from speaker then you know you have the right wires and location of speaker ,,ie.. front left back right ect ....Now you are a fully experianced radio fitter ??
Hi , how badly are the wires burnt. If you can still see the colours just cut the wires and join colour to colour.If you still have problems just phone me on 01978780731 I am a auto-electrician living in Wrexham . Rig
One easy way to know which ones are the speaker wires is by using a double AA battery and connec one wire on any side of the battery and just tap the other side of the battery with a nother wire and when you find the right one you will hear the speaker make a sond keep doing this until you find all the speakers well I hop this helps.
test all gronds and powers then the remaining cables use a AA batterie and conect one cable on each end on the baterie like on of on of like toching at times and that will make the speakers to sound for a little then you will identify every speaker then read the diagram on the radio and plug it in acording to the radio diagram
