Power for memory, power when key on or accesories,etc, then all the speaker wires. Have you stopped at a stereo sales place, or autoparts place and asked for an adapter harness to go from your vehicle to an aftermarket stereo? It will make it much easier, much cleaner in case of removal later & will probably save a big headache too.

Camry 1994 sec radio reads HELP, need code to reset so we can listen to radio


Here's a sheet that has your code.

And here's how to put it in.

I've scanned the code sheet as two .jpgs so everyone with an older Toyota can save, share, upload, copy, paste and generally spread this helpful info around. One dealership actually wanted $45 just to put these in for me, but another, awesomer one just made me a copy of the sheet for nothing so I'm just paying their good deed forward.

Does any radio work for a 1986 camry?


As in aftermarket like a Sony or Kenwood or..???? Yes.
The easiest way to install one is to get an installation kit. One that has a bracket/face that fills the hole in the dash and the new radio sits in and a wire harness. The harness makes things so simple. You don't need to know what wire color is what. The cars factory harness plugs right in and the new radio wires will be the same color on the harness.

Up grade 1988 camry radio


Yes, you can.  This is a standard "DIN" opening.  Width and height are specified; but not depth.  The plastic empty space tray immediately below the radio - actually make this a "2 Din space"

If you are electrically savy - carefully remove the black trim bezel (two hidden fasteners in the middle section and a couple at the bottom; and a hidden white plastic tab buried way in the back at the bottom - need a long screwdriver to release - accessed only after removing the ash-tray...

I am not aware of any pre-existing wire harness adapter...

Electrically savy - get the above out -  and then measure the available depth.  You can get several molex connectors from Radio Shack, and cut the current wires - and put connectors on them - so that you can reconnect the original factory radio easily.  Unplug those, and make molex fittings going to the wiring for your new radio connecting to the molex you put on the factory wiring.

I'm currently looking at putting in a satellite navigation radio with screen, dvd player, etc. into my 1988 Camry which I've owned since new.  Only new car we ever bought....  Good luck.

Audio wiring problem


Constant 12V+ Blue/Yellow
Switched 12V+ Gray
Ground Brown (or your own wire to a metal grounding point)
Illumination Green
Antenna Trigger Black/Red

Front Speakers 4" Dash
Left Front (+) Pink
Left Front (-) Purple
Right Front (+) Green
Right Front (-) Blue

Rear Speakers 5 1/4" Rear Deck
Left Rear (+) Black
Left Rear (-) Yellow
Right Rear (+) Red
Right Rear (-) White

I a '83 camry, there are 2 seperate plugs that go into a factory radio.
One for Power/and front speakers, and the other for rear speakers.

Sounds as if you are missing part of the harness for the rear speakers (or it is shoved in the back of the dash unused by the previous install). If there is not an un-cut plug in the dash - your only course of action would be to run your own set of speaker wire to the rear.

See this picture... these are the plugs that should go into your factory radio....

Metra kit 71-1938 will go from your factory wiring directly into your factory radio.
