SOURCE: I need to know which color wire is for what replacing radio

Normally you red wire is the battery+. Black is ground-. Yellow should be battery backup which should go to your ignition. You wil then have either two sets or four sets of wires depending if its a 2 or 4 channel radio. For instance,Brown, and brown with a white stripe- White and white with a black stripe and so forth. these will be you speaker wires. In every instance you wire with the stripe will be your negative.

SOURCE: need wiring color description for

Thanks for visiting FixYa!

Most all older GM cars using Delco wiring (up to about 1989-90) used the same wiring colors.



Locate three plastic plugs fanned out of a single harness bundle. Plug colors are blue, white and black. Each plug has four pin positions and may have four corresponding wires. All plugs are almost square, and have alignment ridges that guide insertion to specific slots at the rear of GM radios. A fourth, smaller and flatter plug may accompany the other three. This plug is usually connected for electronic preset and clock memory.


Locate the following colors on the blue plug for rear speaker connections:



Right: Negative=light blue, Positive=dark blue

Left: Negative=yellow, Positive=brown.


Locate the following colors on the white plug for front speaker connections:



Left: Positive=tan, Negative=light gray

Right: Positive=light green, Negative=dark green


Locate the following colors on the black plug for power connections:



Yellow=12 volts ignition, black=ground, gray=illumination, pink, if present, activates a power antenna.



The small, flat plug has an orange wire to a 12-volt battery for preset and clock memory.


Trace each wire through the adapter plugs, strip the ends applicable to the stereo you are installing and use crimp connectors to mate the wires with the stereo's output wires. Use a test light to test power and illumination connections. Use a multimeter to test for ground wire continuity and speaker connections.

Have delco radio head unit model #1618995. has 7 wire plug 2 white wires on end one on end has small plug where do plug it too? has power checked with meter


Hi Steve,
I'm going to need a little more information. That looks like the serial number. I can't find any info on #1618995. What kind of car did it come out of? Sounds like some kind of Chevy. Is it an aftermarket radio? Delco is a bad choice, unless your replacing your radio with an other factory radio. What kind of car are you putting it in?
Let me know if your just trying to put an aftermarket stereo in, radio kits and wiring harnesses are available for most cars. Ray

I am adding a kicker 500 watt amp and a pair of 12" kicker subwoofers to my factory(non Boss - possibly Delco)audio system. I need to tap into the rear deck 6X9 bass speaker wires to make the kicker s


You will know if you have them O.O.S. ( out of synk ) they will simply not sound right. You want them hitting in the same polarity.
Make sure you check to see that you have disabled the on board amplifier(s) before just cutting the wires.
You didnt add any information about what type of automobile you have, other than saying "Delco" so I am assuming its a GM vehicle?
If so, you will want to Google " speaker wire color for (make/model/year)"

Ignition coil wiring diagram


I would probably go ahead and replace the components, at least with used parts as a trial.
Do you have the Delco system or the Magnavox system ? The Delco system has 3 small coils.

Replacing stock Delco stereo display unit Model #16161954 in my 1993 Buick Regal with another stock unit, do I just color match all the wires?


yeah. if you were going to put an after market cd player in there, you would actually need to purchase a wiring harness though. but yes, just match the wires, but be careful to not cross them, because those wires are small enough to melt if you cross them.
