    most radios have a black wire for ground, a single yellow wire for power, a single red wire for switched power (only has power when vehicle is on) and dual grey wires, dual white wires, dual etc. for speakers. the single blue wire is for remote accessories like an amp or eq.

Usually it's....

black = ground
red = switched battery power
yellow = constant batery power (for clock...etc)
orange = illumination
blue = amplifier turn on or accessory (electric antenna, amps etc)

green/white/purple/grey are speaker wires.

I'm installing the Pyle plcd33mr in my 1996 rinker 180 boat and the wireing harness on the stereo does not match up with the boats. How should I go about fixing this


The trick is find the adapter which plugs into the original radio's harness. In the automotive world, these adapters are vehicle specific and readily available. The adapter plugs into the original radio's harness and the wires on the adapter are the same colors as the wire colors on the new after market radio's plug. So it's a matter of connecting yellow to yellow ,etc.
I was unable to locate adapters for boat radios, or radio pin outs . I would think they are available as the automotive adapters are.
I suggest you go to a local marine supply store and ask if they carry radio adapters for after market radios. You can also try doing a web search. It may work if you can come up with the name and model number of the original radio in the boat, and try a search using that info....

Radio won't play


There may be differences between the color coding of the adapter wires and the color coding of the vehicle. Check to determine whether the wires were functionally matched, not just matched by color. Check for missing or poor connections

just get the harness kit from a sound shop/bestbuy/walmart. it plugs into your car harness and has wire colors that match all the wires on the radio. it makes it fool proof and a breeze.

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.

Wiring Diagram


If you could post a clear picture of the back of the radio where the plug goes in I might be able to help you. I need to see the number of pins, their configuration and the shape of the socket. It wouldn't hurt to see the colors of the wires in the plug too.

I am having trouble trying to install a stereo to my 1994 lincoln town car because i dont now the color code to the radio harnes so i can install it


Best thing to do is purchase a Radio Wiring Harness. These can be purchased at a Store like Circuit City, Best Buy, WalMart (not sure of your location) or a 12 Volt Specialty shop.

This harness will connect to your new radio harness and plug directly into the vehicle harness without having to cut wires. The Radio Wiring Harness will come with color identification to match to your radio harness.
