If you bought a Pioneer receiver, you should know what its connections are. Adapter harnesses sometimes do not have the same color wires, BUT the connections are correct. In the 2001 PT Cruiser, the LF speaker wires are DK GRN (+) and RED/BRN (-). The RF speaker wires are VIO/DK GRN (+) and DK BLU/RED (-). The LR speaker wires are BRN/YEL (+) and BRN/LT BLU (-). The RR speaker wires are DK BLU/WHT (+) and DK BLU/BLK (-). A RED/WHT wire supplies power to the radio when the ignition is on and a PNK wire is a fused B+ input which is always hot. An ORG wire provides panel illunination and a BLK/YEL wire from the headlamp switch prevents the panell illumination from turning on unless the parking and/or headlamps are on

SOURCE: wiring harness on my 94 Ranger

I have a 94 Ranger XLT extended cab. Here are the power/ ground connector pinouts and wire colors as shown in the factory service manual:
Pin 1 LG/Y Radio Memory Power (B+)
Pin 2 BK Ground
Pin 3 Y/BK Power (Hot in RUN or ACCY)
Pin 4 LB/R Illumination (dims with dash lights)
Pin 5 O/BK Illumination (does not dim)
Pin 6 BK/LG Ground

From the diagrams, looks like either ground will work.

Hope this helps.

What is the wire color code for a2001 malibu stereo. i would like to put an after market stero in?


if you havent taken the factory stereo out of the vehicle yet, if were you i would go to an auto store and buy wiring harness that plugs into your factory harness, that gives you all the colors to match up with your aftermarket... that way nothing gets cut on or messed up... and with the electical stuff linked to the stereo system, trust me you dont want a headache like that... a harness kit only cost like 15 bucks, plus if you ever wanted to get rid of the vehicle you could take your aftermarket stereo out, and plug the factory one right back in... hope this helps

My new car stereo doesnt have same wiring as original


Most new radios have wiring accessery kits, or a simple wiring harness kit. the colors match up to your new stereo, and offers a harness that clips into your factory harness. Or, you can look at the diagram to find out which wire is which, and find a wiring diagram for your factory harness and simply line the 2 up, cut off factory harness, and wire them directly.

I dont know how to wire it to my car stereo wires


Do yourself a favor and run to audio store or even autoparts store & get an adapter plug/harness, cost is a few bucks but well worth it. It plugs into factory harness & you wire your new stereo to it according to diagram with new system.

you should never cut the wires on your factory harness... metra and other companys have harnesses that fit your car and would provide you with a correct wire color code you need to hook up a aftermarket stereo keep that in mind but i will post the wire diagram u are looking for
