Ok try this link : http://www.installdr.com/Harnesses/Ford-Wiring.pdf

TIP: the best way to test speaker wires to be sure is with a small battery (triple AAA or double AA should be fine or 9v is easiest) and touch the positive and neg terminals of the batt to the speaker wires and you should hear a popping sound in the speaker and to determine which wire is positive and neg just look at the speaker and if it moves outward when you touch the wires to the batt then the polarity is correct if it goes inward than it is backwards.

Hope this information helps

I am installing a sony cxs-gt09hp in a 2003 f250 and the wires dont match need to know what wires hook together


You should really invest in a $15 wire harness so you do not have to cut the factory plug.
Instructions will be in the package - but in the event you dont have a factory plug due to theft - here is the vehicle's wiring color codes...

Car Radio Battery Constant 12v+ Wire: Light Green/Pink
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: Black/Violet
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Light Blue/Red
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger: Blue

Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Blue/White
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Orange/Light Green
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): White/Light Green

Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan/Yellow
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray/Light Blue
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown/Pink
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Orange/Red

Thanks for using FixYa!!

What color is what when installing a car stereo in a 91 Grand Marquis?


you can go to your nearst car audio shop and buy a harness that will plug into your factory plug, which will allow you to wire directly into it with your aftermarket radio harness which is color coded to match. the reason i recommend this is b/c some of the marquis are factory amplified. although i have included some wiring info for your car, be sure to test all wires with a digital meter first.
Battery BLUE/YELLOW (+) RADIO HARNESS Accesory GRAY (+) RADIO HARNESS Ground BROWN (-) RADIO HARNESS Illumination GREEN (+) RADIO HARNESS Power Antenna BLACK/RED (+) RADIO HARNESS LF Speaker (+) PINK LF Speaker (-) VIOLET RF Speaker (+) LIGHT GREEN RF Speaker (-) BLUE LR Speaker (+) BLACK LR Speaker (-) YELLOW RR Speaker (+) RED RR Speaker (-) WHITE

Installing newer radio in older truck


Hello zachary_reed,

What you need is an aftermarket wiring harness. These are made by Metra, Scosche, and others and are made to plug directly into the OEM radio harness. It appears that the one you want is the Scosche FB02B available from SonicElectronix. You simply connect the wires from your new receiver to the harness wires and then plug it into the factory radio plug. Another online retailer that sells aftermarket harnesses is www.crutchfield.com. Your local car audio shop or perhaps Best Buy may also have the wiring harness.

Be sure to match up the wires from your new radio harness to the aftermarket harness by FUNCTION, not by color. For example, most newer receivers will use Yellow as the 12V constant (hot) wire. The wiring color code for your F150 is shown here. Make sure that the pin on the aftermarket harness is connecting the yellow from your new receiver to the green/yellow of the OEM plug and so on.

Hope this helps.

Installing a new car radio


if you have a wiring harness al the wires are color coded to match the after market radios colors. the yellow constant wire goes to 12 volt or battery wire. the accessory wire would be the red wire that is the switched 12 volts. the remote is for the factory amp or an aftermarket amp which turns on and off it would be the blue with white wire.

Installing Alpine CDE-9852 CD Reciever In A Ford Mercury Sable LS


well most commen tool is a phillips head screw driver (+) to remove components to get the old deck out you'll need a dash kit to mount the new radio in 15 buck from canadian tire or audio shop...
the easyest way to wire this up would be getting a harness to plug into the factory harness too get the color code and then u just make the connections red to red yellow to yellow makes it real simple that way... the other way is to get the hanes manual for your vehicle then find out what color each wire is then yu have to cut the factory harness wire up from the book takes alot longer but can be done its worth the 12-20 dollars to get the job done if you need more help ask
