Need a wiring diagram for a DEH-X6600BT. IT'S GOING IN A 1993 CHEVY ASTRO VAN. I KNOW KNOW THE WIRES OF THE VAN. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO CONNECT TO ON THE RADIO. THAY ARE DIFFERENT COLORS.


I hope someone comes along who can help; in the meantime, you might try the following. Naturally the power wires will be 12V and usually red(+) and black(-), if they're not, you can examine the other colors, to determine if their are separate ground wires for each speaker. If it uses a remote, and you want to hook that up; I can't help. sorry. But, if the speakers have a common ground, there will only be 1 wire for each speaker, the other connects to the ground of the car. If there are two wires for each speaker, they will be 4 different colors, with a 2nd wire which has the same color for all 4 speakers, so each speaker has a colored wire, and a common colored wire. This will leave the power connections, unless you have other controllers (see above).

One you know which are the power wires, you can connect them to a spare 12 V battery, and then comes the fun part. While adjusting the radio for front back, left and right, using the colored and a common wire for each speaker, this will be the same as the ground wire for the power even if not the same color, you can connect it to ground for the test. Then connect the colored wire and common wire to a speaker, by adjusting the controls you can find out if that colored wire is for front or back, left or right. Then you'll have your color code.

Although prolonged use of only one speaker or only two could cause damage to the radio, short use to troubleshoot at low volume shouldn't be an issue. Just don't use it that way.for a long time!

I hope this helps. Let me know.by rating up my answer! :-)

I hav a 95 berrta and im tying to put a head unit


Hello chrisuftring,

Here's a link to the wiring color code for the '95 Chevy Beretta.

You'll need to match the function of each wire from your head unit and the color code for that would be in your manual. Most aftermarket units are somewhat standard as far as power, accessory, ground, and speaker connections are concerned. But the wiring colors may be different for such leads as remote, power antenna, illumination, dimmer, and muting.

An Alpine head unit has the following wiring colors:
Blue - Power Antenna
Blue/White - Remote
Pink/Black - Audio Interrupt (muting)
Orange - Illumination
Red- Switched 12V+
Yellow - Constant 12V+
Black - Ground
Gray - RF Speaker (+)
Gray/Black - RF Speaker (-)
White - LF Speaker (+)
White/Black LF Speaker (-)
Violet - RR Speaker (+)
Violet/Black RR Speaker (-)
Green - LR Speaker (+)
Green/Black - LR Speaker (-)

With this head unit, you would wire Yellow to Orange, Red to Yellow, Black to Black, Orange to Gray, Blue to Pink, Gray to Light Green, Gray/Black to Dark Green, White to Tan, White/Black to Gray, Violet to Dark Blue, Violet/Black to Light Blue, Green to Brown, and Green/Black to Yellow.

Note that there are 2 "yellow" wires in your vehicle color code. You'll have to test them to determine which one is the accessory wire and which one goes to the left rear speaker. Using a 12V "test light" is the simplest. Connect one side of the light to ground. With the ignition ON probe the yellow wires. One of them should light the tester, the other one won't. Verify that the light goes out when the ignition is OFF and your have separated the redundant "yellows". The one that lit the tester is your 12V+ switched wire and the other one goes to the left rear speaker.

Hope this helps.

Wiring colors


You will need a voltmeter. Normally red is power, black i ground, yellow is memory power. the best way to know for sure is to use a voltmeter to test what each wire is recieving in power and when. If the key is off then the wire that has 12volts dc is for memory and the main power wire should be at 0volts dc. When the key is on that wire should have power now. the ground will be black on that car. Good luck.
