    I ran into a problem. One of my buddies has a 93 civic EX and he wants to put a aftermarket head unit into it. He said the car had been stripped of the radio bu the wires were still there. Boy was he right, the wires were there but they had been cut from the wiring harness. Heres my question, do any of you guys know which wires are for what component of the head unit. (they are all different colors from the head unit's wires) PLEASE HELP

    Go to a Local Car Audio shop in your town and have them print off a Wiring Diagram for the Car.. They should have something there if they are a real Car Audio shop.

    DO what everyone else said, its easy to do yourself, it isn't a mess, just 11 wires that will have to be crimped.

    i had my car have its original harness ripped out from way deep - and the wires were smered with electric tape(factory wrapped and smeltered) took me all of a 1/2 hour to wire it up - was simple enough when ur done use your head unit make sure ur speakers all work hunky dorey- bye using ur balancer and fader -=p turn off the car and if for some reason it stays on u got ur power /12v backwards lol

    I was going to suggest asking CarAudiophile but he already was here.
    He would be the best person to ask.

    You could also get a manual for your car, that way you will have a reference for other things in the future also. :)

    What a pain in the ass. I just run run it right off the battery, ground it out, and use crossovers and rerun the speaker wires. The only wires I use are the antenna, constant and the 12v switched.
