    Hi, just putting a deck in an 85 aries for a friend, and I want to check to make sure what wires I am splicing. From the car there's red, red\white, orange, yellow\black, green, and black. Just confused as to what the red\white, yellow\black, and orange are. Thanks for the help

    Did you first check with BestBuy to see if there is an adapter harness available for your car deck and car? That way you don't have to splice any wires whatsover. you install the adapter into the car deck and the other end to the existing car harness. About $15.

    You should get a car manual with a schematic. Or you'll end up following the wires to the speakers to see what is what. Usually red is +12v, black is ground. Everything else is for the speakers. Unless you have an auto antenna lead. That may or not be orange.

    typical manual: http://www.themotorbookstore.com/reliant.html

    adapter harnesses: http://www.tune-town.com/cars/stuff/dodge/

    Check your local library, ebay and your local car store. You might be able to "peek" at a book's schematic if you know what to look for and how to read them.
