Am I ever glad I found this thread. It sounds like you guys might be able to help.
So, I had a fancy Pioneer unit in my 02 Mustang that previous had the CD6 with the Mach 460 system. I wired it all up using directions I found elsewhere and I was pretty happy with the results.
Then two weeks ago someone smashed my passenger window to smithereens and yanked it out. Not only that, but they cut the plug that I believe is used to power the amps. There are two different strands that I cut back and they consist of an orange, gray/black, green/black, blue/purple, and bare wire from one strand and a brown/orange, red/black, green (or dark teal green), and another bare wire. That gives me nine wires for what was an 8 pin plug. Are the bare wires both grounds?
Now, I'd either like to find a way to get some connectors on these wires and hook them up to the stock head unit (the economical route) or figure out what order to solder them up to a new wiring harness. I can't find any information on these wires, only the standard speaker and power wires. Does anyone know exactly which wire does what so I could hook it up to a new unit? And for future reference (should I want to return the stock head unit later) does anyone know where I can get the oem plug for these wires?
Any help would be much appreciated! I'm leaving on a road trip for Lexington, KY tomorrow and I really don't want to spend that many hours in a car without tunes!
