Yellow is A battery wire, goes straight to the battery to keep the memory in the cd player. Red goes to the ignition, tells your cd player to come on when you turn on your car. Orange is secondary power. Just tie it in with the red wire. Black is ground. The wires that have two of each, Purple,white,grey,and green are speaker wires. And the blue wire all by itself goes to your amp if you have one to the remote hole.

How to install a Kenwood kdc 138 in a 1992 Ford Escort LX?


if its anything like my 92 ranger you take the dash apart around the radio and the stereo should unscrew, in my ranger the new cd player went in without any extra harness as it was the same size as the stock, if not you can but harnesses to go where your old stereo did, to connect the speakers you can buy a ford wiring harness from walmart or any store with an audio department. these plug in to your vehicles wiring harness so you don't have to cut it out, after that you simply match colours from the wires of the new cd player to the wiring harness

I cant figure out one of the wires on my kenwood car stereo


Hi, red = ingnition power black = ground yellow = constant +12v blue = remote. There should be 8 wires bunched 4 colours & 4 same colours with white stripes. These you will have to experiment with your cars wiring. This is just a eneral rule for most stereo wiring.
Hope it helps.

I have a 1995 f250 it had a tape factory player and trying to put a single factory cd player that came from a 1996 ford areastar van but the wiring is diffeent is this possible?


yes. more that likely if you look at the stereo it will give you a colour code as to what colour wires do what. if they dont then a simple google search for a stereo wiring diagram for each vehicle will be even better. if its just your speakers that are messed up then a neat trick to remember is if you take a AA battery and put the + side of the battery to the + side of a speaker wire and the - to the - then that speaker will come out. If the poles are backwards then the speaker will go in. good luck

Where can i get a wire harness for this stereo?


If you are in the UK then Halfords will have one in stock, or if they don't they will order one for you, if you are in the US any motor electrical services company will be able to supply one. We had hells own job getting a Kenwood adaptor for our porsche, but halfors came up trumps.

What wiring harness do I need that works 1996 Toyota Tacoma


Hello shonk_patric,

You'll have to go to Kenwood or to the audio dealer where you purchased the receiver if you do not have the harness that plugs into the back of the radio.

One vehicle specific aftermarket harness for a '96 Tacoma is the Metra 70-1761 available here at Crutchfield.

Hope this helps.

Go to your local wal-mart or radio shack and ask for a radio wiring harness adapater, it connects directly to your car wiring and there i\will be no need to cut your car wires. Best of all the harness cost less than $10.

I need to install a kenwood cd player into my 2001 ford explorer step by step


goto the auto parts store and purchase a pair of stereo keys, fascia adaptor and wiring harness (you may need to get fascia and harness from a car audio store or circuit city.)
Then use the stereo keys to remove the factory stereo. Push them into the small holes on the front of the stereo push them slightly outwards and pull to release the stereo. Unplug all the connectors from back keeping track of where they fall.
Insert wiring harness into the stock wiring
attach fascia in regards to its packaged instructions.
Place cage from new stereo into the hole in the dash using the tabs on cage to secure it,
Attach stereo to other end of new harness along with aerial (may need adaptor for this also depending on the new head unit.)
Insert stereo into new cage and voila nice new stereo.
