Default Can someone please tell me the correct wiring colors for the radio on a 95 hardbody?

I recently bought my first Nissan. Its a 95 hardbody single cab 2.4 2wd. I pulled out the junk aftermarket radio the guy had in it ( which wasn't wired up ) and was going to install a new radio in it. I had problems doing so, as the colors weren't as I'm used to. Incoming, I have red/green, green/white, brown, brown/white, black/white, pink/black, pink/blue, and a few others. Can someone please tell em what each wire goes to?

If the factory radio plug is still there, pick up an adapter plug that will go to an aftermarket radio.

Remember there is not a ground in the factory radio plug, you must ground to metal some where.

This times a billion. Everyone on Earth hates the type of person who cuts off factory radio plugs. If you don't hate those people, you're one of them (and that makes you almost like Hitler).

Thanks so much guys! The stock harness plug was cut, and they pieced wire together ( total mess ) but I got it together. Thanks! I hated riding in silence

The idiot that did the last head unit in my truck before I bought it (last owner paid to have it done) thought that cutting off the factory connector and junking it was the proper idea even though he saved the factory unit. Some people....


Glad you got it sorted razor!

Took me a while to figure that one out..... I don't think I've ever seen that on any other radio installs I've done....

For anyone still needing help with colors I've figured out that pink/blue is illumination positive pink/black is illumination negative red/green is battery green/white is ignition
