I just installed a CD Player yesterday but have misplaced my sheet. The way I had to do it was connect the power and ground wires for the stereo. Then take a pos and neg wire coming from the stereo and touch a pos and neg wire running back into the dash and see what speaker comes on. Actually I bought the connector kit so the wires coming from the speakers ran into the connector and the connector wires were marked. My problem was the Pioneer wire harness that I had to splice to the connector kit was not marked and didn't come with a wiring diagram so it was slightly more difficult. But I had to do that on one of my wifes old cars. (Weird british car!) Anyways, I'm rambling. Hope you can find an answer somewhere in this mess.

Thanks, what I want to do is I have a sony preamp only head unit that goes to a PPI amp than to a kicker ss-120, ( 2-12's with horn tweeters fullrange) what I was thinking of doing was taking out the kicker to regain my back seat and using an apline 4 channel amp I have to run the 4 factory speakers, that's why I need to know what wire in the factory harness goes to which speaker. I could probably find out the colors from the harness manufacturer. Thanks I don't know what I'm going to do right now anyway It will come to me but appreciate your response, later,
TONY

If you're going to be using a Sony preamp only headunit why do you need to know the speaker wire colors? That headunit isn't going to have any speaker connections on it. All the connections will be made with RCA's that connect to your amplifiers.

You'll only need to find the power, ground, and ignition turn-on lead in the factory harness.

check out www.the12volt.com they have wiring diagrams for just about any car. Also why dont you try a wiring harness adapter so you dont have to worry about the colors of your wires and then you dont have to cut the stock harness

If installing a new radio, it's much easier to get the matching harness for your truck from a good car audio shop or Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. But here is the wiring info:

Left front spkr + Light green/violet
Left front spkr - Light green/dark green

Right front spkr + Light blue/violet
Right front spkr - Light blue/black

Left rear spkr + White/red
Left rear spkr - White/black

Right rear spkr + Tan/violet
Right rear spkr - Tan/black

Constant 12volts + Pink
Accessory 12volts + Red/white
Illumination 12volts + Orange
Dimmer circuit variable 12volts + Tan
OE amplifier 12 volt remote on, if equippped: Dark green/red

Ground is the black wire with the 1/4" spade terminal on the radio chassis

I have 01 Dakota quad cab. My rear speakers just stopped working. Dealership said radio was bad, so I put a new one in. Speakers still don't work in rear? What is the best way to bypass the infinity amp??

It is not too hard to bypass the amp, but before doing that why not take the amp to a good car audio shop, get it bench tested and see if it can be repaired if it's bad? Have you checked the rear speakers to see if it's a bad pair of speakers instead of a bad amp output? Since the amp gets its input from the high-level speaker outputs from the radio, it could also be the rear speaker output wires from the radio are bad, shorted or cut/damaged too. In my experience at least, dealer service depts don't have a lot of experience with audio systems and they may not know what is really wrong.

If this were my truck I would remove the amp and check its outputs with a known working test speaker then use an ohm meter to check the rear speakers to see if they are blown or have shorted voice coils. I would also test the rear speaker wires from the amp location to be sure that they are not shorted to ground, which would mute the output from the amp and possibly damage the amp. Have you done any other work to the truck that may have pinched, cut or shorted out the rear speakers' wiring?

Did both rears quit working at the same time or one at a time? Did they exhibit the bad sound characteristics of a blown or damaged speaker before they finall quit working?

These are some of the things that could be causing the problem. But if the speakers, radio and wiring are all ok it is easy enough to bypass the amp. You need to take a look at the wiring decal on the factory radio then match the speaker input wires at the amp for each output to their respective speaker leads in the truck. I probably have that info if you need it. You might even find a bypass wire harness at a car audio store, Best Buy, Circuit City etc. I don't know if they make one but it would make life much easier for you if you have to bypass the amp.

As far as I know they both stopped same time. The only work I have had done was a shorted wire for rear left door lock. They worked after that, its been a good year or so. I had another radio tried it but no luck with that.
