Stereo Wiring Q's
Posted 17 October 2003 - 10:04 AM
BLUE - RED/blue stripe - WHITE
YELLOW - RED/green stripe - BLACK
The blue from the old radio was plugged to blue and the black into black.
My new deck has a Yellow (battery tag), Red (acc tag), and a black (ground) then of course the speaker wires.
The Haynes manual has a wire layout that's useless...it's "Typical of 1980 through 1994 Audio System Layout." I don't have some of the wires it says and I've got wires the diagram doesn't have.
Can anyone help me out? Please. I drive alot and I'm getting bored!

Anyone have a FSM with wire diagrams for a 1981 DL that you can scan and email or post?
Or has anyone wired one up and can tell me which wire's which?

If you don't have a voltmeter, then make a testlight .. use a turn signal bulb( or any auto bulb you may have laying around.) and solder or tape wires on to it.. works great

Set the meter to read DC volts with the function switch and set the range to read at least 12 volts. Place the red test lead in the "+" position and the black lead in the "-" position. You are now ready to test for voltage on the car leads.
Place the black meter lead on a good ground point on the car and then place the red meter lead on the wires you want to test for voltage then take your reading.

and run them direct to the fuse box there are special little leads just for that purpose ( there flat and will slide right in between the fuse and the fuse clip) there at radio shack for 1.00
yellow wire will go to the clock or any fuse that suplies constent power with ignition off take the red wire and start touching in tell you find the fuse that supplies power that where you hook the yellow wire to the red wire can go to the radio fuse
the blue/white wire is the power amp
and of coures black ==ground

I put a Pioneer CD deck in mine. I ran both a hot and ground directly from the batt due to the fact that I have a 0.3v differance between batt/engine ground and chassis ground.
