XF Radio Wires

Guys I really need ya help here. Took the cd player out of my XF to put the old radio in, and as I was in a rush, didn't take the time to label the bloody wires. So my question is, can anyone here colorcode the wires?

Cheers.
Pete.

Re: XF Radio Wires

According to factory manual:

Brown = inst lights

Black = earth

green/yellow = +12V (permanent)

blue/white = 12V accessory

orange/green = front LH speaker +ve

grey/green = front RH speaker +ve

blue/red = rear RH speaker +ve

pink/green = rear LH speaker +ve

Unfortunately, it did not state which colour wires are negative for the speakers. However, the manual does show a diagram for the plug - the pos and neg wires for each speaker are one above the other in the plug, so you should be able to work out which is which. Also to be sure - use a multimeter or test globe to check the voltage at the permanent and accessory +12V wires. Hope this helps.
