Ok guys, somehwere back in time some idiot decided to cut the plugs off my Stereo harness in the TII. If anybody could give me a breakdown of the wires and where they are headed I would appreciate it, the car had the factory premium sound installed and was in the back of the car, but I am installing my Kenwood head unit and I don;t have the plugs to order a re-wire kit. Even a scan of the factory wiring would be fine, or a link to the specific page in the FSM would work too.

if you have the wiring diagram its like the type 2 or 3 system. basically it goes like this.

1 single spade : 12v battery or 12v switched

3 pin connector: 1 pin is the one the single wire isnt (12v or switched 12v), one of the others is the lights, the 3rd i think is the antenna

theres 2 4 pin plugs for the speakers. the rear should go directly, so you just have to test em. they are kinda color coded but i dont remember how.

the front goes to the amp, so its best to run your own, because the amp needs to be powered and its prolly broken, and its heavy

agreed, running a aftermarket amp greatly simplifies things

and it allows you to run new wiring as well

just remember to put the relay in the antennea so it works right

Blue with red stripe is constant +12VDC.

Blue with white stripe is switched +12VDC.

Blue with yellow stripe is antenna - need switched ground signal.
