I need to know what the wiring harness wires do and go to by the colors of the wires. Example (yellow=12v constant/Red=12v acc/ Black=ground)

OK, I assume you are talking about the harness of wires from the radio itself. If you are going to install this, I recommend you purchase an install wiring harness. This way you can plug into the factory harness of the vehicle. If you are attempting to hardwire the radio, please don't. If you vehicle doesn't have the factory vehicle side of the harness, try visiting the scosche or PAC website to see if they have it first. If you purchase a wiring harness, it will have all the information for the right install. Hope this helps.

I have an delco electronics radio for my GMC 1500 Sierra 1994. Model no is: 16179985 There is no harness so I need to know what goes where! Many thanks Anders Australia

Is this a stock GMC radio you are putting in your Sierra, if so, visit the scosche or PAC website to see if they have one available. If you are installing an aftermarket radio, then you need to purchase a wiring harness. It will have the color coding on the package. If you don't have the vehicle side of the harness, again, visit the scosche or PAC website for availability. Hope this helps.

Can I hook up a pioneer deh-p3500 without a harness?

If you are talking about the radio harness, probably not. If you are talking about the wiring harness to plug it into the vehicle. The answer isn't so simple. Aftermarket radios have standardized wiring colors. BUT, they don't match vehicle wiring. So, unless you know your vehicles wiring diagram very well, I wouldn't recommend installing without the wiring harness. If the problem is that someone installed in your vehicle before this and cut the vehicle side of the harness, then I recommend you visit scosche or PAC website to see if it is available. It CAN be done, the question is SHOULD it be done. And the answer is no. Harnesses are very cheap these days, unless you have a data transfer style radio, then it gets a little costly. Most are around $7-$20. Hope this helps

If you make a close verification on the back side of kenwood DNX9980HD 20 PIN HARNESS then you can see a Light Blue wire with Yellow stip ( BLUE/YELLOW) on it with a identification mark as "Remote cont". You have connect this wire to the Brown wire with white strip (BROWN/WHITE) from the 20 PIN HARNESS of AXXESS ASWC . There wil be a brown wire also from this 20 PIN HARNESS of AXXESS ASWC, leave it free insulated. It will not use with kenwood radios. You have to check for LIGHT BLUE with WHITE strip. There is also two other blue wires of which one with white strip. You hve to choose the light blue wire.

Wiring help for realistic 5 band equalizer don't know year or model of unit it has no wiring label on it. has 3 gray wires, 3white wires,3 green wires, one black wire,one brown wire....

the 5 thinner cables goes to positive lead of each speaker from the radio (input to amp) the red one to battery.You will not use the negative led for the speakers from the radio. The remaining coarse ones goes to the speakers (each pair same color to a speaker) and the red one feed radio positive led. Black is ground.

Where does the brown mute control wire connect to? what do the dimmer + wire and dimmer negative wire connect to on the kdc-bt645u?

unless you are going to connect to a cell phone, don't worry about the brown wire. unless the display is too bright at night, i wouldn't worry about the dimmer wire either.

It won't connect to my 98 dodge ram. I order a wiring harness for my dodge but what i got is already in my truck

There are scosche, aftermarket to factory wiring harness at Wal-marts for about $10-15.
Or you could hard wire, the stereo harness into the factory directly. It is not very hard to do. If remember right, there was no good factory ground, so you would have to run one yourself. As with any electronics installation a multimeter or test light can be useful, but a good wire striping tool and electrical tape will be needed.
I would start by checking my factory harness with the multi-meter, and finding (or rechecking for) the wire with 12v that is constantly on, and for the wire with 12v only when the ignition key is turned to either "on" or "Accessory". The wire colors for your truck, should be:
Constant 12V+ Red
Switched 12V+ Red/White
Dimmer Orange/White
Antenna Trigger Yellow
Left Front (+) Dark Green
Left Front (-) Brown/Red
Right Front (+) Purple
Right Front (-) Dark Blue/Red
Left Rear (+) Brown/Yellow
Left Rear (-) Brown/Light Blue
Right Rear (+) Dark Blue/White
Right Rear (-) Dark Blue/Orange

Now that is the basic factory package, if you have an upgraded model with a factory amp (not very common) it will be different, but same concept applies.
