Re: 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.

Do you need color codes for the deck.. they should be on a sticker on the unit itself...if you need color codes for the vehicle your driving thats another thing..does ur vehicle have a harnass?? Or was the stereo harnass and plugs cut?

If you have a female harness to connect to the veicle side you will pretty much color match. The only exception is that you may only have an amp turn on wire but only a power antenna on the vehicle. In this case you would connect blue w/white stripe wire from radio harness to the blue antenna wire on the vehicle side.
If you are doing a hardwire (factory plug has been cut off) you can obtain a wiring code for your vehicle at www.the12volt.com for most vehicles.
here is the wire digram hope it helps

MAY THIS HELP YOU
Do you have the harness adaptors? it is best to use these rather than cutting harness. you can swap factory radio back in at later date and they will tell you the wiring ,if not i will try and locate the diagram for you
Notice, this is from the 2005 Ford F150 Wiring Harness. Other radios should be the same or very close. From the main 24 wire connector on back of radio (C290A).
