Are you trying to use that radio in a different vehicle, or are you trying to find out what wires in your vehicle you need to connect to a new radio? Your best bet either way is to go to your local library and find the service manual to that make, model, and year of vehicle, and look up either the wiring diagram, or connector views of the radio. You can also buy conversion harnesses to plug a new radio right into your vehicle, so you don't have to splice wires. You don't want to just start hooking up wires because putting power or ground in the wrong spot can wreak havoc on the vehicle and the radio. Hope this helps.

I have a Kenwood KDC-2023 and i want to know what each colour wire means and what is their function, also how to connect it to a toyoata camry 1998 xv20

This link will get you the owner's manual with the identification of the plug wires.

This link will get you to a company that makes wireing harnesses to attach to the plug wires from the radio to the factory wiring harnes.You can look up your vehicle to find out the parts you will need. You will need an installation kit also.

If I had someone work on my computer and now the internet provider is saying I don't have a modem. Does that mean the person I had work on the computer took it or could there be another explanation? I've...

Take a look at the "back" of your desktop computer.
Look for a "square" socket, with 4 (not 8) parallel gold wires inside the socket.
You may see _two_ such sockets, side-by-side -- if you do, you certainly _do_ have a dial-up analog modem.
If the socket has 8 wires, it is your network-port (connect an Ethernet cable into that socket).

Click Start
Right-mouse-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click Hardware.
Click Device Manager.
Is there a "branch" of the hardware "tree" for 'modem' devices?
Is the modem listed in GREEN, or is it coloured YELLOW or RED,
meaning that the software for the modem is not correctly installed.

Radio wiring colours for fiesta 2000

if you are looking to put a new stero in the best thing to do is go to radio shack or the parts house and spend 5 or 10 dollars and get a wiring adapter. You can wire the thing in your house all the colors are the same and then you just walk out to your car plug it in and go. It is worth the money it is pretty cheap anyway.

The cable has been cut off of my acer monitor (v771-m) I took the back off the monitor and want to fit another cable from a different make, can someone tell me which colour wires go to which pin on the...

Have you already removed the wire from the back of the monitor or have you already replaced the wire and now want to reconnect the 15 pin D-type plug?

If its just the D-type you want to reconnect then have a look here:

Its not the easiest diagram to follow but all you need to remember is that some wires are used and some are not.

If you dont have a particular colour of wire then it probably isnt used.

I hope that helps...

Need radio wiring color info.

the best way to find out which wire is which is grab a test light now find the BATTERY WIRE and IGNITION WIRE the battery wire should constantly have power and the ignition wire should only power up when u turn the ignition on

the other wires are ur speaker wires what u would need to do is get a AA battery snip the wires that have the same colour but one should have a striped colour with it and make the wires touch both ends of the AA battery u will hear a speaker make static sound this will determine which speaker that wire goes to

Let me know how u go

BTW the earth wire just goes to the body and u will have a Interior light wire wire that to the cigerette lighter globe
