According to any wiring diagrams I have looked at for the radio in your vehicle (both the premium and base systems), the only wire that I see that could get pretty much anyone confused unless they know is a dimmer wire coming from your headlamp switch. The only reason I cannot be 100 percent sure is because according to the wiring diagrams it is a black and yellow wire but I don't see any other wire with yellow that could cause a question. To be sure you can always check at the connector on the headlamp switch and check for continuity but if I were a betting man I would put my money on this. I went on and gave you the wiring diagram for the base system (without an amp). Not sure how well you can see anything due to a size limit on pictures but I hope I was able to help.

    The yellow is a memory which would be low but constant amp. Power. The blue is a remote wire for a amplifier if not useing one just cap it off good luck

if there is no amplifier separate from the radio - the blue /white wire from the back of the radio goes to the solid blue wire on the harness attached to the car's plug. the orange wire is not supported by the kenwood radio, so make sure you tape it well- if your not using a separate amp also tape up the blue/white wire coming off the harness you have coming out of the harness to the car. if this helps you please give me a good rating- if not please e-mail me at Merle840@aol.com respectfully M.

SOURCE: need color codes for a kenwood kdc- 122p head unit in dash.

Hi there,
Generally you can find these manuals freely available at the manufacturers website, however it usually take ages worth of searching and i thought id save you the hassle,
Head to this link for your units entire manual.. Page 17 i think it is exactly.
http://www.cartoys.com/cartoy/pdfs/kdc-122s_manual.pdf

There a good little unit but sold a few when i was working in the industry.

Otherwise generally you can pick up pre wired pugs that adapt the cars harness via one plug to the back of the stereo avoiding any splicing. If youre interested in them head to this website,

Hope this helps, 
Have a happy easter
Cheers
Steve

SOURCE: What wiring harness do I need that works 1996 Toyota Tacoma

Hello shonk_patric,

You'll have to go to Kenwood or to the audio dealer where you purchased the receiver if you do not have the harness that plugs into the back of the radio.

One vehicle specific aftermarket harness for a '96 Tacoma is the Metra 70-1761 available here at Crutchfield.

Hope this helps.

The only wire that you should hook up from the amp to your head unit is the remote power wire which is the blue wire on the wiring harness for the head unit. Sometimes they are blue with a white stripe. Hope this helps.

The yellow wire goes to + (hot) 12 volt constant, red wire goes to ignition switch, Hook up your amp together with the red wire
(switched) and the amp will come on with the ignition switch.
Blue and white wire is for the power antenna.
