My dxz665mp has two power wires (a 15 amp and a 3 amp) what are they for? I am new to installing and I lost the box and instructions.


Cd players require 3 wires for the unit to power on and thankfully name brand companies have made it easy for the consumer by making the wire harness with standardized wire colors. The wires that have the in-line fuse holders should be yellow and red.

The yellow wire is the constant 12 volt power feed to the the deck. This wire needs to have power all the time for the deck to maintain it's memory (ie saved radio station presets, audio settings, clock etc...).

The red wire is called the switched ignition or ACC (accessory) wire. This wire will only have power when the key is turned on.

The third wire all decks need is the black ground wire. All car electronics need power and ground to turn on.

The other wires are your speaker sets... white (+) and white with a black stripe (-) for the front left speaker, grey (+) and gray/black for front right, green (+) and green/black (-) for left rear and purple (+) and purple/black (-) for right rear.

Other wires...not all makes and/or models of radios have these but, if your's does, here's what they are.

blue with a white stripe - amp turn on wire, used for providing a turn on trigger to aftermarket amplifiers (some factory amplifiers too depending on the make, model and year of vehicle)

orange or orange with a white stripe - illumination wire

solid blue wire - power antenna wire, this makes motorized antennas go up and down when you turn the radio source on/off

Chrysler Part No. P56038933AB Radio Wire Color code


1982 to 2001 wiring harness color code Chrysler.

12V constant pink or pink/white stripe
12V accessory red/white stripe
Antenna/Amp turn on white
12V Illumination black/yellow stripe
Left front + dark green
Left front - brown/red stripe
Right front + purple
Right front - blue/red stripe
Left rear + brown/blue stripe
Left rear - brown/yellow stripe
Right rear + blue/ orange stripe
Right rear - blue/white stripe

there is no ground wire in the harness, the metal braided strap is the ground.
use a ring terminal,speed clip, and screw to attach the ground wire from new radio
when replacing infinity radios and speakers, there are 4 wires instead of 2 at the speaker plug. the large gauge blue and black wires are the power supply for the amp, the other 2 are signal wires from the deck and will match up to the wire color codes above. simply cap off the power and ground and use the other 2 for speaker leads.

One thing i hate to see is someone who just hacks off the plugs behind the radio because they are too cheap/lazy/dumb to buy a wire harness adapter for the nice new aftermarket deck they just bought. ive seen everything from masking tape to house wire nuts used to connect wires, and they never last.
there is only 1 reliable permanent way to connect wires together - SOLDER AND SHRINK WRAP!!! whether you're connecting wiring for a radio, fog lights,repairing a cut wire, etc solder those wires, you'll be glad you did when you never have a problem with that circuit again.

This is a listing for part #'s for dash kits wire harness adapters
all part numbers are metra unless otherwise noted
dash kit 99-6700, 99-6701 and 99-6500 will work for most cars
wire harness adapter 70-1817
reverse harness( to replace factory plug that have been cut off) 71-1817
speaker adapter plugs 72-6510, non amped 72-6513 when equiped w infinity system and bypassing fact amps

no antenna adapters are required until you hit 2002 model year.
beginning in 2005 chrysler switched to a high speed LAN system in all its cars and trucks. there is no longer a switched ignition lead in the harness.
Good Luck
