    Installing a Head Unit without the stock wiring harness?

    Well, my friend needs help installing his head unit, but his stock wiring harness got chopped off because someone stole his previous one. So now there is just a bunch of wires there. Anyone got any clue on how to install it?

    EDIT: Car is a 1995 civic Hatch.

    so its pretty much color matching the wires to the new wire harness for the head unit?and the most important wires are red for power, yellow for acc, black for ground, orange for illum, and blue with white stripe for antenna?

    I am willing to bet that the wires are not standard colors.

    Note that if the stock wire harness was cut off during a theft, it's very likely that there are one ore more blown fuses in the vehicle fuse box. If you have problems, check the fuses.

    you can get factory wiring harnesses from decent shops, best thing to do would be to put a factory harness back in, and then if you change radios alot you don't have to do it all in car
