FAQs

What color wires should be connected when installing a car stereo?

Generally, black and yellow wires are used for ground connections, red is used for power from the battery to the head unit, blue is for remote turn-on (to turn on an amplifier), white is for left positive, and green is for right positive. Always refer to your car’s specific wiring diagram when making connections. Additionally, remember to use electrical tape or crimp connectors to secure the wires once connected.

Which wire is the 12v constant in car radio?

In most modern vehicles, the 12v constant wire is usually yellow and can be found in the harness behind the radio. Sometimes, it may also be labeled as “BAT” or “12V”. It’s important to ensure you have correctly identified this wire before connecting it to your new car radio. Ensure it is a 12v constant and not another type of wiring, such as an ignition wire. Once you’ve identified the correct wire, you can connect it to your new car radio.

What color wire is positive in 12V?

The positive wire in a 12V system is usually colored red. It is important to remember that the positive wire will also be connected to a terminal or switch labeled with either “+” or “P.” In some cases, the positive wire may also be marked with a stripe or other marking to indicate its polarity. When in doubt, always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions for the correct wire color.
