You won't ever. They make a universal harness. You should have a wire harness for your new radio only that was included with the radio. It should plug into the new radio and the other end will just be wires. Then you will need to go to a parts store, ( AutoZone, Oreilly's, Advance Auto, Etc) and but a radio wire harness for your truck. It will have a connector or two that plug into the harness that plugs into the back of your stock radio and the other end will be just wires. you will then connect the two harnesses together by matching wire color. ( EG: Purple to Purple, Gray with black stripe to Gray with black stripe, etc)

SOURCE: wiring harness on my 94 Ranger

I have a 94 Ranger XLT extended cab. Here are the power/ ground connector pinouts and wire colors as shown in the factory service manual:
Pin 1 LG/Y Radio Memory Power (B+)
Pin 2 BK Ground
Pin 3 Y/BK Power (Hot in RUN or ACCY)
Pin 4 LB/R Illumination (dims with dash lights)
Pin 5 O/BK Illumination (does not dim)
Pin 6 BK/LG Ground

From the diagrams, looks like either ground will work.

Hope this helps.

How to install a Kenwood kdc 138 in a 1992 Ford Escort LX?


if its anything like my 92 ranger you take the dash apart around the radio and the stereo should unscrew, in my ranger the new cd player went in without any extra harness as it was the same size as the stock, if not you can but harnesses to go where your old stereo did, to connect the speakers you can buy a ford wiring harness from walmart or any store with an audio department. these plug in to your vehicles wiring harness so you don't have to cut it out, after that you simply match colours from the wires of the new cd player to the wiring harness

Should i have any spare wires when hooking up an after market car stereo


Yes, It's a very good possibility that you will have a few wires left over. Normally a wire for an aftermarket amp to be triggered on when you turn your radio on and possibly a power antenna or a dimming function that dims your radio lights when your headlights are on. It of course always depends on if you have a power antenna or not, or if you have an aftermarket amp or not or if you have the dimming feature on your car or not. These wires don't apply to everyone.
You will just match the colors between the wiring harness that came with the DUAL radio and the interface adapter that goes to your car. Make sure you use **** style crimp connectors. If not the wires could come loose or cause a popping noise or cause the radio to turn off while driving.
Other than that, installing an aftermarket radio is mostly matching the colors up between the two harnesses and crimping the wires together.3_6_2012_2_31_36_am.jpg

Dual xd1222 radio fit a 97 stratus wire harness


Basically the radio will fit but since harness differs between some chrysler products, you need to find the pigtail that will fit the Dodge harness and give bare wires to connect the Dual's respective wires. An example of this can be seen at http://www.hifisoundconnection.com/Shop/Control/Product/fp/vpid/2669860/vpcsid/0/SFV/30046

I have found similar pigtails at Walmart, Best Buy, and some autoparts stores. Crutchfield includes all this based on your purchase - just a thought.

I got a 1998 ford expedition eddie bower and im trying to install a radio i just bought and i need to know the colour coding from the car eglike power wires and speaker wires


just get the harness kit from a sound shop/bestbuy/walmart. it plugs into your car harness and has wire colors that match all the wires on the radio. it makes it fool proof and a breeze.

Wiring for stereo in 94 ford explorer


Sounds like you have the Premium Sound system. The main power plug is long and probably black, the other plug is square with a grey round cord coming out correct?

You can either take your power harness back and get the correct one ( a little more expensive) or run ALL 4 sets of speaker wires back to the right rear quarter panel. That is were the OEM amp is mounted and taking that panel out requires you to remove the top and bottom tailgate trims, a dozen screws, the seat belt D-ring and 4-5 plastic push clips that will probably snap off...:( Also, this will not make the OEM subwoofer work.

From 20 years experiance in this biz, save the time, spend the extra 30$ or so and just buy the correct connector. Check MetraOnline.com and search there.
