The stripe is probably the +, and the darker color wire is probably the -. If unsure, test it with a multimeter.

Color codes for stereo


They make kits just for this. Just plugs into the existing harness and then you run you wires to the wires from that harness, some may even have matching plugs that go directly to the Head units wire harness plug. I did My Mustang by cutting into the wire Harness and simply used a multimeter to check for battery, memory 12 volts and running light or dash board Illumination wires then you can test the wires coming out from the stock radio to see which are right, left , front, rear, antenna out, etc..

I just labeled them with magic marker on some masking tape with what they were before I cut off the harness permanently.

I have a 1985 Camaro Berlinetta with a unknown 305 in it. The noise on the starter broke in half I took it out it's for a 1980 Impala. I tried a 1985 Camaro starter no luck. I put a new 1980 impala starter...


If I remember correctly, there were two noses for those starters, either should work as the difference was that on one both bolts were long, the other used a long and short one.
The one thing that may be missing there is that both starters used a front support bracket that either fastened to the case or to one long bolt that holds the starter together that had a short threaded extension on it. the other end of the bracket attaches to the engine block. Under load, that bracket keeps the starter from trying to tilt up and break.
Another thing that can break the nose is an ignition cross-fire. that can shock the housing and also give you that problem. Make sure the ignition wires are good as well as the cap and rotor.

Trying to get the color codes for the speakers wires someone cut my radio wires and im trying to install new one.


Usually speaker wires have a solid color, and a stripe of another color on them. Sometimes it's a solid color, and rings going around the wire of another color.

The striped wire is the Positive. Then there will be a wire, that is the same color as the stripe. (On the striped wire) This is the Ground wire.

Stereo wireing


go to advanced auto parts and buy a connector for your car. just go and give them year, model and make and when you get it connect the same color wires from the stereo to the stereo harness. all of the colors are the same.
