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 dont know how to hook it up


2 grey 2 green and 2 purles are speaker outputs. one of each color should have a black line. thats usually the speaker negative. blue is remote power out to connect to remote power to amp. red is 12 volt power(+). black is power ground (-) yellow is switched power from fuse block.

Power turns on then 1 second after protection light comes on and power light blinks


MAKE SURE THAT THE POWER AND ESPECIALLY THE GROUND CONNECTIONS ARE 100%. REMOVE THE RCA INPUTS AND SPEAKERS. POWER THE AMPLIFIER UP AGAIN UNDER THIS NO INPUT, NO SPEAKER LOAD CONDITION AND IF IT STILL GOES INTO PROTECTION, THEN IT WILL NEED TO BE SERVICED. LET ME KNOW IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE.......V

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.
