i have a newer model radio i need,to know which is the spear wires


is this a new question or old? message me, i can help


Speaker wire


red/yellow power (one battery for memory, black ground, blue usually power antenna, on the new radio the wires should be labeled if it is after market, read the stripes closely....(most of the time it is a matter of matching the colors, light purple/ light purple and stripe, or THE HARD WAY....turn the radio on, each channel, set to left front, and touch wires until you hear that speaker sound....for each one...


On my truck the original wire harness has a blue wire as the accessory wire and not a yellow wire is that normal?
