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
Brown: Phone Mute
Green: Ground for Parking Brake (DVD Systems)
Blue: Power Antenna turn on
Blue/White: Remote amplifier turn-on
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:
- In most installations - the BROWN MUTE wire will simply be terminated (not connected to anything.
- 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.
- 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.
