Question about Cars & Trucks
I am tryin to install a cd player an the wire colors are not like any others,i dont know were the red,yellow,&black wire hooks up to,i found the right back an left back for my 6/9,please help me.
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

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.

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.
