Have a question about your Volvo Radio Wiring?
Whether your an expert Volvo mobile electronics installer, Volvo fanatic, or a novice Volvo enthusiast with an Volvo, a Volvo radio wiring diagram can save you a lot of time. Volvo radio wiring is becoming increasing more difficult to identify due to the installation of more advanced factory oem electronics.
One of the most time consuming tasks with installing an after market volvo radio, satellite radio, xm radio, car speakers, tweeters, car subwoofer, crossovers, audio equalizer, car amplifier, mobile amp, car amplifier, mp3 player, ipod or any car audio electronics is identifying the correct color car audio wires for your Volvo.

I am changing the audio system (lost the codes for factory unit and codes supplied don’t match-maybe a changed unit before I owned it) and have a problem with the wiring. I’ve seen some posts in the forum, but they don’t help me.
On the rear is a 14 pin flat plug and a 6 pin DIN (marked amp). I.ve seen 1 lot of colour wire explanations to the 14 slot plug in a link on the database here, but it isnt the same as mine. Are the Australian models different?
What I need is where these wires connect.
Should the Din wiring get hardwired into the new volvo radio wiring?
I’ve searched for speaker wires and tested all the ones in the 14 slotter, but it appears none are there. But it’s evident that the din has them due to speaker noise when checking circuits.
The 14 er has power sources and grounds. And plural! This plug doesn’t make sense to me. Must be all sorts of things into it. 1 test on wire from it made the parking lights go on.
Can anyone help?

10 bucks, no chopping up the wiring in a multi-thousand dollar car!
The wire colors MATCH your aftermarket stereo’s!
