Use a test light if the colors are different. Real easy and basic.
red accessory :turns on and off with the key
yellow memory :stays on all the time
black ground :obvious
blue remote :only used with an amplifier
the rest are speaker wires.
if you have 2 orange wires. they are illumination wires usually only used for the stock radio not aftermarket just tape them off.

What year mercury mountaineers wiring harness will match my 99 mountaineer awd 5.0 w vin# 4M2DU55P2XUJ33364 wiring harness


Looks like 99 to 01. they are a pain to pull. I would go mine before pulling another. Old vehicle. Junk yard part. Most likely you have many plugs to replace on it.
