Hey guys, we quite often get asked in here for colours and what wire does what. So, to help out. I have created this sticky topic. It's taken me awhile to compile this list but if you see any mistakes please let me know and I will amend them.

VK - VL

Accesories - Yellow
Constant - Orange
Illumination - Grey
Earth - Black/White
12V OUTPUT - Pink

Speakers

Front Left (+) - Tan
Front Right (+) - Light green

Rear Left (+) - Dark Brown
Rear Right (+) - Dark blue

All the negatives are joined together and are the light blue wire. Not many HU these days support the "common earth" system and as such require you to rewire the whole speaker set-up which in reality considering the age of the car isn't such a bad thing after all.

VN - VZ

Accesories - Yellow
Constant - Orange/White
Illumination - Brown/White
Earth - Black/White
12V OUTPUT - Yellow/Red
Radio Mute - Yellow/Black (VT onwards)
Antenna up - White (VR onwards)
Antenna down - Blue (VR onwards)
Illumination OUTPUT - Grey (VT onwards)

Speakers
Front Left (+) - Tan
Front Left (-) - Grey
Front Right (+) - Light/Green
Front Right (-) - Dark/Green
Rear Left (+) - Brown/Black
Rear Left (-) - Yellow/Blue
Rear Right (+) - Blue/Orange
Rear Right (-) - Blue/Black

Like I said guys, if you notice anything wrong then please let me know.

Hope this page is of some help to you all.

VB-VH coming soon.....

In the VX the brown wire is the signal from the steering controls. Needed when you use a Car Audio Transponder (CAT-08)

Muttley, it was removed from sticky at my request. There is a new sticky regarding a whole heap of questions that have been asked and this post is listed in their. But, thinking about it. Perhaps it would still be wise to sticky this one.

Found a sticky in the electrical section here with stereo colours in an attachment so maybe you could just refer to that.

vh- yellow is 12V accessories, black is earth. no illumination, no 12V constant (run your own), speaker wires are pretty useless as they have a common earth and not really compatible with newer cd players

Saint Matrix. I didn't bother going back as far as VB-VH as there is only two wires that could be used and only one that SHOULD be used and that is the Acc wire. You should always create a new earth when installing any equipment.
