The code for the wiring colors should be on the back of the radio. But, you can figure this out with one extra speaker on the bench (or floor board) The colors are in pairs = "gray - gray with stripe" The stripe will be the negative side of your speaker. So you will have a Gray pair, white pair, blue pair and green. Using one speaker on the floor or already mounted, hook it up to one pair of colored wires, lets start with gray. Now run the radio balance right then left, then fade front to back, to see which your speaker is hooked to. Make a note of which, then the next color run the balance right then left, then fade front to back, then the next so on and so forth. This way you will know which is which and you will have it written down for future reference when you move the radio into a new car. So if your gray pair has no sound on the left balance you know it is a right side speaker, then if it has no sound when faded to the front you know it is a rear speaker, so in that case Gray would be "right rear", Hope this helps Fixya up.

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

Suburu radio wire harness. trying to match up with a new soni deck


Hello uze7, Here is the wiring match up for a 2009 Subaru Forester using the Metra 70-7552 wiring harness: NOTE: The actual harness will be listed as a Nissan harness, but has been used by Subaru since 2007. Also, I'm assuming that your Sony deck uses the standard color code. If not, you should have a manual that lists the function along with the colors. Match the wiring by function, not by color (although the colors may be the same). 2009 Subaru Forester Radio Wiring Color Code: Battery BLUE/RED (+) RADIO HARNESS Accessory YELLOW/RED (+) RADIO HARNESS Ground BLACK (-) RADIO HARNESS Illumination VIOLET (+) RADIO HARNESS Dimmer BLACK/WHITE (-) RADIO HARNESS Power Antenna YELLOW/BLACK (+) RADIO HARNESS LF Speaker (+) BROWN LF Speaker (-) BROWN/WHITE RF Speaker (+) BLUE/WHITE RF Speaker (-) BLUE/YELLOW LR Speaker (+) WHITE/BLACK LR Speaker (-) RED/YELLOW RR Speaker (+) GRAY RR Speaker (-) GRAY/RED Metra Harness: Yellow ? 12V Constant Red ? 12V Accessory Black - Ground Orange ?
