The simplest way to figure out wire colors on the ford is to purchase the radio wiring harness from a stereo shop like a Metra or Scosche harness and match the aftermarket wiring color code to the opposite side (vehicle side) of the radio plug. If you are just replacing speakers, then removing the speaker from the car with the plug attached, you can easily figure out polarity. Just connect a 9v battery to the speaker leads on the speaker (NOT THE CAR) for a second will make the cone either pop out or **** in. When the cone pops out, note the polarity of the + on the 9v battery. This is the positive for the speakers. Hope this helped.

I need a color coding of the wiring for the harness i was given for my kenwood dpx308u. i just need to know which colors belong to which wires

Ok, you should have a wiring harness that plugs into the radio. That comes with the radio. You will need a wiring harness that is specific to your vehicle, this will plug into the vehicle harness. The wiring harness will have the correct colors to attach your radio to it. All aftermarket radios have standardized wiring. I recommend not attempting to hardwire your radio due to the risk of frying your entire electrical system. I hope this helps.

2001 honda civic ex stereo wiring diagram or color code

Sorry, I don't have the right diagram, but I will walk you thru finding the color code.
Connect a test light or voltmeter to ground and probe each terminal with the key off.
The one that has power is called hot and is used to maintain your station presets.
Turn the key on, and you will find another terminal. That is the accessory wire that powers the radio.
Next, hook the test clip to the hot terminal and probe the terminals again. The wire that yields a voltage will be the ground--It's probably black
