OK, I'm kicking up this old thread. Despite all the great information in the FAQ, this thread, and others on the forum, I'm stuck. I'm installing a Pioneer deck and am following the guidelines for the 94 pin mapping from the FAQ as I assumed that would be the same for the 95s.
I've gotten all of the wiring from the new radio harness mapped to the recommendations from the FAQ but have a few major problems.
- I have a total of 13 wires in my truck's harness but the FAQ maps only 12.
- I have a solid yellow wire in my Defender which isn't included in the FAQ
- The FAQ states that there is both a red with black stripe and a black with red stripe wire. I only have a solid red wire with a single black band.
- seems like the FAQ has the ignition and light switched colors switched when compared to the pioneer schematic.
Here is the mapping that I've made thus far:
Power:: Yellow :: Purple
??? :: N/A :: Yellow
FL+ :: White :: Black w/yellow
FL- :: White w/black :: Black w/orange
FR+ :: Gray :: Black w/pink
FR- :: Gray w/black :: Black w/red
BL+ :: Green :: Black w/green
BL- :: Green w/black :: Black w/blue
BR+ :: Violet :: Black w/white
BR- :: Violet w/black :: Black w/brown
grnd :: Black :: Black
Igntn :: Red :: Orange w/white
Light Switch :: Orange/white :: Red/Black (red with black band in my case)
I'm still lost as to where I should attach the yellow wire from my truck. All other wires from the actual radio harness apart from "wired remote", which I don't have, have been mapped. I also can't tell if this wiring was hacked by the previous owner (the heat shrink leads me to think "yes") or if this is the way all 95s are wired. I've used process of elimination to map the solid red wire to the light switched source. Hoping you guys can help confirm if that's the right move.
I've attached a picture for reference. I'll try to get a better one tomorrow. Any help you guys can provide will be greatly appreciated. In the five years I've owned this truck, I've never had a working radio and I'd love to have one before setting off for a road trip next weekend. Thanks in advance for your help.
UPDATE: Looks like the wired remote needs to be connected to the amp. Based on comments above, am I right understanding that to be the yellow wire? Fast forward to 2:25 in the following video.
