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.

I have 1993 honda accord im try to swap a 2000 honda civic radio but my honda accord all we have for speakers cables are red blue green yellow and white,i can't figure it out wich one goes were the 2000...


All cars with 4 speakers have 8 speaker wires (4 positive and 4 negative). The colors of the wires for these two cars are not the same. The only way to know which wire goes where is to get wire diagrams for both cars. Before cutting up your wire harness, check that the radio you're installing will bolt into your car and fit. Just swapping the mounting bracket may not work.
