It would be helpful to know the unit and colours you have. Does the stereo have a universal connecting block, have you tried to get a user manual from the maker? Is the car colours or stereo colours the problem. If its the car use a volt meter, 'shell' the earth and check for power and switched and illumination

SOURCE: WIRING CHANGE FOR 2002 DODGE CARAVAN

Your best bet on that one is to go to a place that sells car audio systems or even some autoparts retailers have them,and get the proper adapter harness already made up. A few more dollars but, a whole lot less headaches.

SOURCE: looking for 1996 ford mustang wiring diagram for stereo

things to consider:
Does it have a factory amplifier?
Is the factory harness still present?
Does it still have the speakers present?

You are going to only have a certain amount of wires... If the factory harness is still there you can simply purchase an aftermarket or just look at one in a local store on what wires are what.

you would have your:
gray and gray w/ black
purple and purple w/ black
green and green w/ black
white and white w/ black
these are normally used as an after market clip on harness for that factory wiring. (left front, right front, left rear, right rear)

Obviously your going to have the constant (yellow), ignition (red) and the ground (Black);
so the others would be either a remote (amp or power antenna) usually white with blue strip and dimmer normally orange for the after market harness, and the others will be the speakers.

What you COULD try is using a 9v battery and picking up the wires that are solid and striped and touching them to the 9v battery.

When you find the two that make that speaker make a popping sound you have found that speaker.
Once you have found the speaker that pops, you should be able to take it out and look at the color of the wires to make sure you will have the pos and neg for each speaker correctly set.

You dont want some speakers being in phase while other are out of phase. if so the sound wont be right.

whatever color they are coming out of your car for example one set is green. choose a color coming out of your cd player to hook up to green. test that if the front left speaker works wrap masking tape around the green wires in car and label front left. do that until you have them all labeled and correct then hook them up according to what you learned. I know it sounds tedious and it is but it's the only way you can figure it out if they are not labeled.

I need to know what colors mean what, so i can hook my cd player up


Red - Power
Yellow - primary power must be joined to the red
blue - Remote
Black - ground or negative
To find your speaker wires check the color of the cord behind each speaker than match it with the same color in the dash.
or the easy way is to use a normal 1.5v penlight battery and try each speaker cord behind the dash and listen to which speaker give off a crackling noise so you can get the balance on the cd player right.
If u trying to find power in the car and don't have a tester than get a 12v light or bulb join the negative to the body and push the positive wire into each one of the holes in the factory plug in the dash one at a time until the light comes on. That is your positive the rest is easy. (DIY guru)

do you have a test light?your speaker wires should be four sets of matching color,dark/light blue,dark/light green,dark/light purple and one other matching set of colors. then there should be one black wire which should be ground.with a test light you can find your power and accesory wires. your power wire will always have power with key on or off,the acc wire will only have power when key on. i hope this will help.
