    Robert, thanks for the 1998 Ford Contour SE speaker wiring information contribution!

    1998 Ford Contour SE w/ factory amp behind glove box)

    The above breakdown was accurate (thank you), but I was confused to why rear speaker wiring was the same color codes on both rear doors… so I did my research. The driver rear door starts life as white / violet (+) & brown / white (-) at factory amp plug & terminates at speaker as same. BUT… the passenger rear door starts as white (+) & brown (-) at factory amp plug and the becomes white / violet (+) & brown / white (-) & before it terminates at that speaker.

    As I removed factory amp & grey din speaker cable arrangement from mine, I had to cut factory amp plug and source wiring to speakers from there. I had intended to run completely new wire to speakers, but Ford put bulkhead connectors in door pillars making this difficult (more effort than I want to exude at this time). Hope this helps someone else!

    PS: The three remaining wires in the factory amp harness appear from schematics to be: orange / yellow is amp positive (+), black / yellow is amp ground (-), leaving white as amp turn on lead. I did not hook up an amp at this time, so I am not currently using these leads.

  3. Okay…I’m going nuts.

    I bought a new Kenwood stereo, and the place I bought it wanted to charge me almost as much as the cost of the stereo to put the bloody thing in, and of COURSE (because they had an installation department), they didn’t sell the correct wiring harness for a DIY job. But, I’m not an idiot, I figured. I can do this myself. How hard can it really be?

    Turns out, I AM an idiot.

    I bought what was supposed to be an appropriate after-market wiring harness and cheerfully started putting it together before I realized that none of the supplied plugs or colors matched the speaker wires on the harness, OR the Kenwood plug (which, of course, match each OTHER). Power supply? Yes. But, not the speakers. So, of course, I cut off the factory harness plug, and figured I’d just dice n’ splice based on what I found. Naturally, the colors were from MARS.

    So, I Googled. Google led me here. “Eureka!”, I thought…Except that none of THESE colors matched, either. So, I’m in a hell of a spot, and I need help.

    The speaker wires on MY car don’t match the colors above. THESE wires are (in no particular order) Yellow, Blue/Black, Orange/White, Green, Blue, Purple/White, Brown, and Red/White. And I have ZERO idea which is positive, negative, left, right, front, rear, or ANYTHING. Please help!
