  1. I was wondering if anybody knows what the color codes for the wires are? like what does the green/black me and so on, and also i know this is a NEWBIE question but what is the red wire? i know it has something to do with power


    Thank You
     
  2. Red=switched 12V
    Yellow=constant 12V
    black=ground
    orange=illumination
    blue=power ant or amp turn on
    white=left front
    green=left rear(i think)
    purple=right rear
    grey=right front

    the solids are + polarity
    the stripes are - polarity
     
  3. umm im pretty sure you got the red and yellow mixed up, the yellow is a consective power, and the red is the power that is on only when your car is turned on (ignition)
     
  4. yup,my mistake:bang:
     
  5. what year r those color codes for???
     
  6. That's standard if looking at aftermarket radios/harnesses. It isn't always the case in the car. The power/illumination are generally correct. Speakers can be damned near any color the manufacturer has lying around.
     
  7. these r all the wires i got in their


    orange/black
    purple/white
    white/orange
    green/yellow
    blue/red
    black/white
    blue/black
    orabge
    red
    yellow
    green
     
  8. Those are the factroy harness colors. Is the factory plug cut off, if not go get an adapter. I got mine at wall mart for 5.00. If it is you can pull the speakers and look at the wires conneting to them and then find the constant, ground and switched wires with a voltage meter.
