Pioneer does not provide an installation manual for this product.
Luckily - the aftermarket industry has developed standards.

Here is a generalized explanation of what each of the colors - some are not used or included with your radio.

Yellow: Constant 12V Power

Red: Switched 12V Ignition Power

Black: Ground

Orange: Dimmer

Brown: Phone Mute

Green: Ground for Parking Brake (DVD Systems)

Blue: Power Antenna turn on

Blue/White: Remote amplifier turn-on



Speaker wires:


Green/Black: Left Rear -
Green: Left Rear +

Purple/Black: Right Rear -
Purple: Right Rear +

White/Black: Left Front -
White: Left Front +

Grey/Black: Right Front -
Grey: Right Front +

RCA Inputs and outputs:

Red: Right
White: Left
Yellow: Video

NOTES:
  1. In most installations - the BROWN MUTE wire will simply be terminated (not connected to anything.
  2. In most vehicles using an aftermarket head unit - when integrating the factory amplifier - you MUST send the amplifier a turn-on signal using the BLUE/WHITE wire.
  3. In cases where the radio/music turns off when you change the source from FM to CD or AUX - chances are good you have the BLUE and BLUE/WHITE wire reversed. (The radio is dropping the signal on the power antenna - and therefore your amplifier is no longer getting the turn on signal from the radio). Simply switch the blue wires to rectify the problem.
