Complete Rewire of Radio

Afternoon all! I'm brand new to the forum. I bought a 90 YJ with NO radio wiring present. The speakers are there and that is it. Anyone have access to a wiring diagram that would show exactly where each purple, red, yellow, etc. wire is connected? Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'd just run new stuff if there isn't any factory wiring there. All you need is a constant hot, a switched hot, ground and then your speakers.

Most people with radio wiring end up installing new speaker wiring anyway, but the official wire colors are shown below.

The dual wires to each speaker connection is to prevent the fader from accidentally "shutting off" the speakers if it was moved toward the rear speakers. If you're installing rear speakers you want to separate the wire pairs.

There is some additional useful information at
