Did you happen to look into buying a wire harness adapter? The sell them fairly cheap at Auto Parts Stores. (approx. $20-$25) It is very easy, as well as making sure it is correct. Otherwise you are taking risks of many types. Such as, electrical issues, sound issues, etc. Just a suggestion.

Radio 12v: white/yellow + radio harness
Radio Ground: black/light blue - radio harness
Radio Ignition: black/pink + radio harness
Radio Illumination: red/black (dimmer) + radio harness
LF Speaker: orange/light green (+) - light blue/white (-)
RF Speaker: white/llight green (+) - green/orange(-)
LR Speaker: gray/light blue (+) - tan/yel (-)
RR Speaker: orange/red (+) - brown/pnk (-)

Can't say for sure but the constant, ground, and ignition wire colors. If those aren't present, look for the following:

12v Constant: Green/Violet or Green/Black
12v Ignition: Pink/Black
Ground: Black/Green

Hope this helps.

    simplify please and all the wires that u mentioned are there plus more and alot of the wires resemble each other should i pay $60 to get it installed professionally?

  • Stephen Lam Jul 17, 2010

    These wires that are used to power the radio and connect up to the speakers. Since a lot of the wires look similar you should verify each wire by using a meter before connecting your equipment. If this is too difficult for you to do, then the best option would to have your equipment to be professionally installed.

Try going to the nearest Walmart. They have cable harness adapters for all Makes of Cars there. You need to find the one that goes to your car then you will need some **** splices, and a crimping tool. You have to connect the wires from the cable harness to the wires that come from the back of the new car stereo you're wanting to install. You may also need a dash kit which they also sell at Walmart for cars. The wiring is pretty easy, red to red, black to black, the wires with a color and a stipe are the speaker wires. The ones with a black stripe are the neg. and the solid colors are positive. Ex. purple/puple with back stipe. There will be 2 sets of speaker wires for every speaker in the car either 4 or 6. Try that out and see how it goes.

No power

Red is power (+12v)
Black is negative
Orange or Yellow is memory
Blue is for amplifer turn on signal
Then there will be 4 or 6 pairs wires with the same color which are the speaker wires. The solid colors are positive, the solid with a black stripe are negative.
You can get a cable harness for your car from Walmart and then all you need to do is match all the wires color for color to each other from the cable harness to the new stereo wires with **** splices and a crimping tool which you can also get from Walmart and that's it. Then all you need to do is connect the two old connector from the old car stereo to the new cable harness connector which is made for your car and there you go. After that you may need a dash kit which you can also get at Walmart..Hope this helps.

Stereo wireing

go to advanced auto parts and buy a connector for your car. just go and give them year, model and make and when you get it connect the same color wires from the stereo to the stereo harness. all of the colors are the same.
