88' YJ radio wiring colors are diff. than others.. help?

I took my radio out cause it was not and how can you enjoy a nice drive with out some tune.
The PO made a mess behind that stereo system so I just clipped all the wires so I can reconnect them properly. I did a lot of jeepsearch and I don't have all of the same colors like all the ones I found. Can someone help me out?



These are the wires I have to work with coming from the jeeps harness. There is 13 and I numbered them from left to right. And what I THINK the wire is.
1.) black - ground or (-)left speakers
2.) brown/white - left speakers
3.) green - left speakers
4.) green/white - left speakers
5.) purple/white - (+12v) ignition switch wire
6.) black/white - left speaker
7.) blue/white - ?? Has +12v when ignition is on
8.) orange/black - ????
9.) pink - (+12v) constant
10.) brown - right speakers
11.) black - ground or (-)right speakers
12.) white - right speakers
13.) white/black. - right speakers


Here is my aftermarket radio harness (for a pioneer stereo) and colors and what I found what wire is which.


1.) yellow - (+12v) constant
2.) red - (+12v) ignition switch
3.) green/black - (-) left rear speaker
4.) green - (+) left rear speaker
5.) purple/black - (-) right rear speaker
6.) purple - (+) right rear speaker
7.) gray - (+) right front speaker
8.) gray/black (-) right front speaker
9.) white - (+) left front speaker
10.) white/black - (-) left front speaker
11.) blue/white - ??
12.) black - (-) ground


Are these correct?? Am I good to just connect them?? Any help or ideas I can do

I have a complete set of FSM's for the 88…

I have to run to do some stuff and will be gone for a couple of hours. Some time later tonight I will be able to get back to this.

It is pretty strait forward. No trick. It's an easy install.

save a headache and just run new speaker wires. You only need about 8 feet.

In the future there is no need to butch the wires. There are cheap adapter plugs that plug right into the harness and you just match colors to the new radio.

That is if you aren't fixing someone else's hack job. Been there done that.

My advice ditch all the speaker wires from the head unit and factory harness. Hook the head unit to the constant power, switched power and the ground. Get a decent 4ch amp and use it to power the speakers it'll sound much better.

THANK YOU!

The radio wiring in FSM (first DropBox link) worked like a charm! I just couldn't figure out the few YJ coded harness wires I had and where they went. Tunes for the first time in 3 yrs!
