Radio wiring/colours MY99

Post by Kitebuggy »

Hi,

the factory connectors are missing at my V70 (MY99). The previous owner cut them off :evil:

To connect my new radio i need the wring diagramm, in particular the colours of the cables to get the right ones...

Could anyone help?

Thanks in advance

Thanks. This may help. I need the function of each cable, like "yellow/violett = ACC" or "brown/black = left rear -"
If i know, what cable is linked to pin x or y at the connector - i can figure out the right layout for my project.

Assuming you haven't got an OEM external amp,
this should do it. ( FYI - "SB" in this diagram is Black ).

Thanks!
It works, so far.
What about the speakers in the dashboard? My radio have only 4 speakers support. I don't know how to connect the additonal dashboard speakers. The tweeters in the back are linked to the back door speakers. Why this doesn't work for the front?
Do i need additonal frequency separators?

Thx
K.

Connect them in parallel with the fronts.
That's what the aftermarket wiring harness
adapter does. You should be just fine.
