Wiring harness on my 94 Ranger

I have a 94 Ford Ranger "splash"(cool truck really)that use to have a Pioneer KEHsomething SuperTuner. Someone thought they needed it more than me and took it out.Luckily the left the wire harness' intact. Problem: I bought a wire harness "kit" that had the black connector and the grey connector to put in a lesser Sanyo stereo in. Seems the kit I got had the two connectors reverse of what the truck's is. Now I need to know what color wire does what on the power/ground side of the connector setup. Of course my handy Chilton's is of no use in that dept. Please help as I aM GOING CRAZY LISTENING TO ALL THE SOUNDS MY TRUCK MAKES@!!!!!!

I have a 94 Ranger XLT extended cab. Here are the power/ ground connector pinouts and wire colors as shown in the factory service manual:
Pin 1 LG/Y Radio Memory Power (B+)
Pin 2 BK Ground
Pin 3 Y/BK Power (Hot in RUN or ACCY)
Pin 4 LB/R Illumination (dims with dash lights)
Pin 5 O/BK Illumination (does not dim)
Pin 6 BK/LG Ground

From the diagrams, looks like either ground will work.

Hope this helps.

Cant find a harness to plug into the back of a Dual XD250 RADIO.


You won't ever. They make a universal harness. You should have a wire harness for your new radio only that was included with the radio. It should plug into the new radio and the other end will just be wires. Then you will need to go to a parts store, ( AutoZone, Oreilly's, Advance Auto, Etc) and but a radio wire harness for your truck. It will have a connector or two that plug into the harness that plugs into the back of your stock radio and the other end will be just wires. you will then connect the two harnesses together by matching wire color. ( EG: Purple to Purple, Gray with black stripe to Gray with black stripe, etc)

Pioneer DEH-P3300 and 94 Mazda


Hello ryan_jaime,

It's good that you have an aftermarket Mazda wiring harness. It will allow you to make all of the connections in a well-lighted and comfortable location rather than fumbling around behind the dash.

If you are somewhat skilled at soldering, the most secure, electrically conductive, and positively insulated splices are made with solder and heat-shrink tubing. You can get the needed equipment from any Radio Shack, Lowe's or even WalMart. Be sure to put the heat-shrink tubing on the wires BEFORE you solder them together. I had to say that! Because I've forgotten many times! But if the soldering route is not for you, get properly sized insulated inline crimp splices and the appropriate crimping tool. Match up each wire by function on the Pioneer harness with the corresponding wire on your aftermarket harness. Most of the time, the wires will be color-for-color matched. But make sure, sometimes wires for things like "illumination", "dimmer", "mute", etc may not be the same colors.

Disconnect the negative battery terminal while you are working behind the dash. After you have the harnesses spliced together, plug the radio end into your Pioneer, remove the old radio from the dash opening, unplug the antenna and wiring harness plug and plug the other end of your spliced harnesses into the vehicle plug and the antenna plug into your Pioneer's antenna connector. Slide the Pioneer loosely into the opening, but don't secure it yet. Reconnect the negative battery cable and test the receiver. If everything works, slide it into the dash opening and secure it. Use the rear support stud and rubber bumper if needed. Install the trim ring or separately purchased dash kit as required. Put the "face-fixing" screws in to prevent removal of the faceplate if desired. Reinstall any dash trim removed and you're finished.

Hope this helps.

I need help wireing my pioneer stereo to my 1991 ford ranger


Large retailers that sell car audio systems (wally-world comes to mind) offer kits for this purpose. The kit contains plugs to connect to the factory harness, and you wire the Pioneer plugs to the adaptor plugs. There are many different kits, you must purchase the correct one for your application. The kit comes with instructions.


If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!
