Hi,

It depends on which audio system you have. Do you have the standard or amplified system?
If you are unsure I can find out if you provide your VIN.

I am not sure, I have 3 plugins on the back of the factory stereo. I think it is amplified because two of the plugins have the red and black wires.


 


my vin# XXXXX XXXXX


 


Thank you

No problem, let me pull your VIN so I can see what stereo you have then we can identify the wiring.

ok

Okay, you've got the amplified 7 speaker system in your Endeavor. On a side note you also have an open recall for your shifter to replace a portion of the interlock cable at no charge.

Now with regard to your plugs and Navigation , are you installing an add-on navigation and you just need to identify some of the wires or are you replacing the factory radio altogether? The reason that I ask is that this is an amplified system and is not a "quick" install.

Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

I am replacing the factory all together with a new Alpine INE Z928HD nav system. I know I have a lot of work ahead of me, thats why I'm asking for the best possible advice.


 


Thank You

No problem at all.

With a complete replacement on this vehicle you need to run new wiring to the speakers. The reason for this is the amplified system does not have any compatible adapters to re-use the amplifier.... so you need to run your speaker output wires from the new radio/nav to the speaker wires located at the amplifier (in the passenger kick panel area at the end of the dash).
You will not be able to re-use the factory subwoofer safely.

If you are OK with this, I can plot out all of your wire identifications for the radio and at the amplifier so you can plan your attack. It will take a while to get all of them ID'd for you, probably a half hour to an hour if that is OK.
Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

Ok, yes that is a of work but with you help I feel confident I can get it finished. I'm ok with waiting for you to get the ID's.


 


Thank You

No problem.

I am starting on it right now, I'll post back as soon as I have everything down for you.

Ok, Thank You Doug!

Okay, thanks for your patience.

I am posting a diagram of each connector before the wiring identification. Please be aware that the pin numbers on the diagrams are as viewed from the back of the connector, the side where the wires go in. Not from the 'business end'. All pin outs are always viewed from the back/wire side of the connector.

graphic
1 - White - Multi display wiring
2 - Black - Multi display wiring
5 - Green/Orange stripe - Right side steering wheel resistance controls
6 - Brown - Multi display wiring
7 - Red - Multi display wiring
10 - Green/Black stripe - Left side steering wheel resistance controls

Note that none of the C110 wires will be used for an aftermarket installation.

graphic
14 - Green/White stripe - tail light input (auto dimmer)
20 - Blue - Accessory/Ignition on power
21 - Red/White stripe - Constant/memory power
22 - Black/Yellow stripe - Rheostat (manual dimmer, typically not used on aftermarket radios)

graphic

31 - Pink - Amplifier
32 - Brown - Amplifier
33 - Green - Amplifier
34 - Red - Amplifier
35 - Brown/White stripe - Amplifier
36 - Pink - Amplifier
37 - Yellow - Amplifier
40 - Black - Amplifier
41 - White - Amplifier
43 - Gray - Amplifier
44 - Light Green - Amplifier

Note that none of the C113 wires will be used for an aftermarket installation.


So with that information, you are going to use the C105 wiring to hook up your constant power, your ignition/accessory power. If you have a dimmer wire, you will connect it there too, and if you have a rheostat wire (almost no aftermarket units have these) you would connect it there as well. Note that most people leave both the rheostat and the dimmer wire disconnected which provides full brightness on the new radio at all times.

When you removed the radio you probably noticed that there was a long bracket bolted to the dash support with a 10mm nut. This is the ground for the radio. You will need to take the ground wire from your new radio and run it to this stud and bolt it down there. The factory wiring does not have a ground wire, it grounds through that bracket so you need to run the ground wire there.

At this point you should have all of your speaker wires left on the harness of the new radio to connect. All other wires that are not connected (rheostat, power antenna, etc) should all be safely taped off. You should not have any loose wire ends back there that do not have protective tape over them.


For the speaker wires we will need to extend all eight speaker wires over to the passenger end of the dash to the amplifier. The amplifier is located here:
graphic
Unbolt the amplifier and pull it down to unplug it.
The amplifier has two connectors on it, an 18 pin and a 12 pin. The 12 pin is the wiring from the radio that we will not be using so you can ignore it altogether.
The 18 pin looks like this:

graphic
1 - Gray/Red stripe - Right Rear speaker negative
2 - Yellow/Blue stripe - Left Rear speaker positive
3 - Red/Blue stripe - Left tweeter positive (unused or crossover to left front positive)
4 - Blue/Red stripe - Right tweeter positive (unused or crossover to right front positive)
5 - Black/Red stripe - Right Front speaker negative
6 - Blue - Amplifier power UNUSED
7 - Black - Ground UNUSED
8 - Gray - Subwoofer negative UNUSED
9 - Yellow/Red stripe - Right Rear speaker positive
10 - Gray/Blue stripe - Left Rear speaker negative
11 - Orange/Blue stripe - Left tweeter negative (unused or crossover to left front negative)
12 - Orange/Black stripe - Right tweeter negative (unused or crossover to right front negative
13 - White/Blue stripe - Left Front speaker positive
14 - Black/Blue stripe - Left Front speaker negative
15 - White/Red stripe - RIght Front speaker positive
16 - Blue - Amplifier power UNUSED
17 - Black - Ground UNUSED
18 - Yellow - Subwoofer positive UNUSED


You can leave the amplifier installed or take it out entirely, but you must leave it unplugged. Connect the speaker wires for left front right front, left rear and right rear speakers to the identifications above.
The left and right tweeters you can wire in parallel to the front speakers (just wire the left front positive wire from the radio to both left front positive wires on the amp for speaker and tweeter and so forth) or you can get a crossover installed in between to split the signal.... or just leave them unhooked etc.
Do not connect anything to the other wires on the amplifier connector. We are only interested in the four primary speakers and their eight wires, and the tweeters if you choose. The power, ground, and subwoofer wires will be left untouched, as will the other electrical plug on the amplifier. Again the connectors must be left unplugged from the amplifier as well.

I can't emphasize this enough.... when you are done wiring things up, make sure everything unused is taped up. If you have wires from your radio harness or an adapter harness that are unused, tape them. Even if they are cut clean with no exposed wire, they will find a way to short out if you do not tape up the ends.


If you have any questions just let me know.

I have that on my head unit, which is Alpine. I need to know which factory wires I hook those into.

Now on your parking brake switch its a little trickier. You can catch it at connector C04 above the brake pedal under the dash as well. It is on pin 13 and is a yellow with green stripe wire.

OK, so I have everything connected but I'm still having problems. I called Alpine and the tech told me the reverse light was probably running hot constantly. Is there another wire that only gives voltage when the car is in reverse only?

Give me a moment to double check my diagrams.

OK.

Yeah I definitely gave you the right spot. Its only live with the vehicle in reverse.You certain you got the right connector and wire?
Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Is that the only problem you have? If so you can use a test light or multimeter to verify its only getting power with the vehicle in reverse.What is going on? The backup camera stuck on?

Yes backup is stuck on.

If you unhook your orange and white wire from the car does it turn off?

Do you have a test light or multimeter?
Ask Your Own Mitsubishi Question
Customer reply replied 4 years ago

No. But I did hook up to the red/blue wire that goes into the reverse light bulb and it works. So I can just leave it hooked up there?

Yeah. You may have got the wrong connector up front. I was just trying to save you hiding some wiring.

hey Wayne, a while back I was installing a nav system in my 2006 Endeavor. I had to wire the system in to the foot-parking brake, and the brake pedal. Now the brake light stays on in the dash. I was wondering how to remove this. With the light on, it keeps me from getting into my system settings. Any idea of what could be the problem?
