Red wire need to be hot just when your key is on and the yellow wire is you auxiliary need to be hot all the time that is your memory and than you will have 8 wire they all have their pairs that is speakers and your blue wire wich is remote and amp if you have one
Hi, the wiring diagram is at the back of the manual. This unit has the standard wire colors for all aftermarket head units. Please get back to me with the car model and year if you need to know the car wire colors to match up.
just had the same problem-it does not come with the stereo or even the DTV1 box, it only comes with the NAV1 unit. Luckily I found a local stereo shop that sold me one out of ther NAV1 box since I only bought the DTV1 box with the stereo and I needed it. So hopefully you will have teh same luck , either that or you will have to buy it directly from Power Acoustik.
First of all the positive feed will go inline with a fuse to your ignition wire down in the fuse box area, drivers side kick panel if you can locate an ignition switch wire, put a test light to the thicker wires found in the kick panel under the carpet or if visible to the eye. Usually in ford vehicles the ignition wire is RED with a Light Green stripe and 12V+ Constant is Yellow which in your case you will not use. The negative feed or black wire is ground and that will go directly to the chassis ground on the vehicle or any ground wire you can find. The remaining wires will go to your speakers. Let me know if this works for you, I need to know if you have speakers and what colors are their wires. Let me know if you get stuck.
Guessing that you don't still have the owners/install manual.
On the back of the head unit there should be a group of unused/unconnected wires (with any luck they will be marked), one or more might be an amp turn-on or power antenna lead, so I suggest (with the unit turned on) testing each wire with a DC voltage tester so as to identify and separate any leads supplying 12+ volts. the remaining group will consist of speaker leads. Trial and error testing will determine the proper L & R rear speaker leads.
use a meter and check for the clock wire with the ignition turned off,,when u find it , use it for your memory wire as it has constant voltage or run a wire to the fuse box and look for the fuse that says clock and splice it in there
