SOURCE: 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.

1991 Ford Explorer XLT Radio and Speaker Wire Colors
Pulled out the stock radio and found two plugs on the back of it. One plug had 7 wires (Power, Dimmer, Amp etc.) and one had 8 (Speakers).
7 wire plug (I could see these wires immediately from the plug):
Car Radio Battery Constant 12v+ wire = Light Green w/ Yellow Stripe
Car Radio Ground Wire = Black
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ wire = Yellow w/ Black Stripe
Car Radio Dimmer Wire = Light Blue w/ Red Stripe
Car Radio Illumination Wire = Orange w/ Black Stripe
?? Don't know ?? Red Wire (No power to wire Constant or Accessory)
Car Radio Amp Wire = Blue
8 Wire Plug (Wires were wrapped in a grey outer sleeve, had to cut sleeve to get to wires.):
White w/ Green Stripe (+)
Brown (no stripe) (-)
Purple w/ White Stripe (+)
Light Blue (no stripe) (-)
Light Green (no stripe) (+)
White w/ Orange Stripe (-)
Light Blue w/ Black Stripe (+)
Yellow (no stripe) (-)
Speaker Wires (found at the individual speakers in the doors)
White w/ Green Stripe (+)
Green w/ Orange Stripe (-)
Orange w/ Red Stripe (+)
Black w/ White Stripe (-)
Orange w/ Green Stripe (+)
Blue w/ White Stripe (-)
Red w/ Green Stripe (+)
Red w/ Blue Stripe (-)
Hope this helps. I spent hours looking for the correct color key and this one works for my '91 Explorer.

SOURCE: where do you connect
The yellow wire is most likely the memory wire as it needs to be connected to a constant 12 volt source.
"Hook red wire to to acc fuse" means you need to hook into the fuse block under an Accessory Fuse. (ie: something that can't be turned on unless the car is running or the key is in the "Accessory" position)
The red wire is explained above. It does not connect to the harness.
Just remember that the yellow wire needs to be hooked to a constant 12 volts and the red needs to be hooked to a circuit that is only active when the car is running or switched to the "ACC" position.
