SOURCE: I need the colour wire

In the caravan are 2 types of Radio.
1. Normal sound system.
1 Premium sound system.
Note: If you don't want to cut the original wires,
You can buy a harness connector to install the aftermarket Radio. The connector are made by aplication, and are plug in.
The colour of the connector are the same colour with the Aftermarket Radio. Just you need to soldering or just put joint connectors.

Normal: colour of wires.

Pink = Battery voltage.
Red/withe = Ingnition Voltage.
Brown/red and Dark green. = Left front speaker.
Dark bku/red and Voilet = right front speaker.
Brown light blue and brown/yellow. = left rear speaker.
Dark blue/orange and dark blue white = right rear speaker.
Ground is a single wire behind the radio.

If you have a premium sound. You need to use the front speaker out to connect the speaker on the door and the speaker on the dash. To complete the 6 speaker.

OK... I hope this information work for you.

Thank you , For use fixya. Rate please.

SOURCE: wiring on back of head unit

You don't need to change the cables from the head unit on.  Just strip of the end of the wires where the old speakers are and crimp on the proper connectors to connect them.  Alternatively you can just solder the wires directly to the speakers.  I always **** splice at least 6" of wires onto the end so you have more wire to work.  The only reason you would change the wires would be because you are putting more than 200 watts per channel.  You didn't speak of an amp so no worries.

SOURCE: neg and a pos on each side of car speakers

Depends on your amp. If they are dual 4 and your amp is 1 ohm stable and you have 2 subs, wire red to red and then red to plus on the amp. If your amp isnt 1 ohm stable wire ch1 red to + on amp, ch1 black to ch2 red, then ch 2 black to - on amp. If this sounds like french to you, go to a stereo shop in your area and pay them to hook up your stuff. It will be a lot cheaper than buying a new amp and subs.

I need to wire my sony cd player into my fiat cinquencento but I have no idea how to wire it in I just spent 23 on a wire for the stereo an it only cost me a tenner for the actual stereo I dont want to...

most car stereos are simple to wire, especially sony!

Main power cable colours are:..
RED = LIVE (+)
YELLOW = MEMORY/SWITCH LIVE it will be next to the red and black cables

You should now be left with a couple of audio out jacks and speaker cables,

the speaker cables are straightforward, most have a twin, ...E.G if you have a grey wire, this should be next to a grey and white (or grey and black, depends on model) wich is classed as its PAIR/TWIN.............

an so forth,, purple, white, brown.....ect ect

each colour havin a twin as stated ealier!! (they are twinned, as the solid colour is usually the negative speaker, and the solid colour with a stripe through it is usually the posative speaker connection (eg..single solid colour is (-)...and...solid colour with stripe is posetive (+)...)

I want to install it in my 1998 dodge ram but i dont know where to begin. i need step by step help with parts i would need.

hi well it is a long process but i hope this will help you, tools you will need are 1x Philips screw driver ( cross head screw driver ) 1x 10mm socket and driver 2x original security keys ( if required! ) first thing to do is make sure you have all the parts for your radio that are needed these should be supplied with the system but here is a check list of what you need to fit it this will also depend on how you will mount it in the dash also, some car radio stores have power adaptors specifically for certain types of audio equipment to vehicle power plug, ie, they should have a lead that will plug into the plug from your vehicle into the plug for the audio unit..would be worth having an ask before you start cutting plugs off of things first and would cost only a few bucks, not only that it saves all the wiring up from one thing to another and also if you sell your truck, you can just plug original radio back in just a tip.... 1x security cage 2x security keys 1x power plug lead 1x aerial adaptor ok, to remove the original radio Open up the power outlet door and locate and remove one (1) Phillips head screw using your Phillips screwdriver . Set screw aside. Open up both the cup holder door and the ashtray door, remove the bezel that surrounds the radio and climate control and extends across the instrument cluster,To do this, grasp the bezel with your hands on the bottom right side of bezel just above the cup holder door pulling toward you to release a series of clips. Once released, work the remaining clips loose by pulling toward you all the way around the bezel. There are a total of fourteen (14) clips. When the bezel is loose disconnect the wiring harness to the power outlet and set bezel aside. Using a 10mm socket & driver locate one of the (1) screws below and to the left of the radio holding the radio in place. Remove that screw and set it the same with the screw on the top right, remove this and set aside, gently grasp the bottom of the radio and pull towards you (note!!! some may have a security cage already fitted if so, make sure you have the keys handy to remove it ), once in the correct position you can then access the rear plugs and areal, disconnect them from the radio, and set the radio aside ok that's the easy bit done, now the hard bit starts...... Pull all the plugs out of the old radio recess ( don't pull so hard as to brake them though, just enough to work with if you do not have the plug to plug adaptor ) you should have 2 or 3 plugs depends on if you have tweeters in your truck, the main power plug should have these wires on it as you look at the plug from the front ( where it plugs into the old radio ) from left to right brown/red = left front speaker - neg dark blue/red = right front speaker - neg black/yellow = day sensor orange = dimmer red/white = fuse power ignition pink = fuse box + pos violet/brown = ccd bus + pos white/black = ccd bus - neg light green = choke relay brown/yellow = left rear speaker + pos dark blue/white = right rear speaker + pos dark green = left front speaker + pos violet = right front speaker + pos brown/light blue = left rear speaker - neg dark blue/orange = right rear speaker - neg black/dark blue = ground - neg ok, that's that done, first things first, make sure you put the security cage in before we go any further, as if you connect the wires so they are permanently connected you will have to undo all your hard work and start again, so now that's out the way now we have what the colour ( i am from uk lol colour ) wires are for what things, time to connect them to the stereo plug, you can either cut the plugs and directly wire to wire, solder them, or just twist and tape them, i personally am a perfectionist and would solder them and use shrink covers on them, or just get plug to plug adaptor..ok here we go, the main power wires are the most important, obviously we need power to the system, and also we need to keep the programmed stations once done, so here is the wire to wire connections you need to do from your old plug to the new stereo plug ( as i said its up to you how you do them ) ok..... you need the constant power ( memory for the set stations and other stuff ) and an ignition power and also a good earth/negative
this will be as follows
Pink ( old plug ) to Yellow ( new plug ) constant power or memory as it is known. Red/White ( old plug ) to Red ( new plug ) Ignition power ( when ignition is turned on ) Orange (old plug ) to Orange/white ( new plug ) Dimmer ( when dash is dimmed if to bright ) Black/Dark blue (old plug ) should be left as is no need to touch, Black ( new plug ) this should be attached to a clean metal area as this is the main earth to chassis.
ok that's the power sorted, it should now be able to switch on and off and remember programmed stations.ok now to the speakers...check the other plugs for these wires these are as follows
violet right front speaker pos+ (old) to Grey ( new ) dark Green left front speaker pos+ (old) to White (new) dark blue/white right rear speaker pos + (old) to Purple (new) brown/yellow left rear speaker pos + (old) to Green (new) brown/red left front speaker neg - (old) to White/black (new) dark blue/red right front speaker neg - (old) to Grey/Black (new)
and that's that...the new stereo does not have provisions for 6 speakers unless you are transferring it through an amp, this is the basic 4 speaker set up, there may be more wires for other speakers on the power plug from the new stereo, and these might go to the other speakers if you have them, you will also have other wires on the new plug, like parking sensor wire, this is connected to the hand brake/parking brake wire, and electric areal wire etc etc, these will have labels on them to tell you what they are for, you do not have these with the old plug, and some of them you will not need to use, that will be up to you on what you will be adding, like amp's, TV/DVB receivers, multi disc CD changer etc etc...well i hope this has helped you, its taken ages to write.....good luck, please comment and rate thanks

Colour code for speaker wires.dont know + from -

I am guessing the cable is figure 8 two cores attached to form a single cable. The core with the line down it is very often the - and the plain the + however it is irrelevant, as long as the cable that is connected to the source, CD, or whatever, the colour that goes to + there, must go to + at the speaker terminals, likewise the - must be connected in the same way neg to neg. This follows for ALL the speakers connected to the system as if you get a pos+ connected to a neg- it will cause the speakers to be "Out of Phase" and could cause sound distortion. Rule of thumb, without any stripes or line black, is usually negative -
