Some nice thief cut the wiring harness of stereo taking plug of stereo unit and mating connector. I have a another radio with a plug and another female connector to splice on to main harness. In reviewing the colors they don't match to wires on harness. If I have the colors that mate I can have a direction to go. Can someone help me out as I can rearrange them to work ( Ihope !)

Rog:

Sorry about your loss...hope you get a chance to confront the person responsible some day (a thief's worst nightmare!!) .

I usually start by probing the bare wires independently (without the aid of a schematic). You can use a simple "light bulb tester". Just attach one end to the harness wire, and the other to chassis ground, and try various key positions. This will identify your hots pretty quickly.

Then I usually break out the schematic, and verify the hots. For the speaks (if they are still there), you can rig up a homemade tester out of any radio with a speaker or headphone output. Referring to the schematic, you should be able to send a signal to each of your speaks.

By process of elimination, you'll be able to identify ground, and any other leads. You may have a power antenna on that model.

If you run into any probs, or need the schematic,email me.

good luck, John

I looked all over the web, bought a $20 Chilton's manual. I still couldn't figure out those speaker wires. Then I found this Message board! My new stereo and speakers sound great!
Thanks guys.

the green wire will be hot all the time for memory

the suabr has a common ground speaker, so on the aftermarket radio you will hook up the +left front, the+left rear, and only one of the grounds from the radio will be used, so the left sude front and back share the same ground, the right front and back share the same ground

so you will be using the front left- and the front right-, the other rear - wires will not be used
