Speaker Wire ID - Positive/Negative, and troubleshoot
I just purchased a 1994 Ford Explorer. I'm replacing the deck and four speakers (door speakers).
I need to ID the stock positive/negative speaker wires. I have white with green stripe and green with orange stripe (I just checked the right front door so the others may be different).
Also, I replaced the deck and now no speakers work at all. There is no sound. I checked and there is power going through the speaker wires from the deck, through the first harness (black harness, 8 wires, I soldered to the speaker wires from the deck). That harness connects to another harness and the wires are then wrapped (stock wiring harnesses). Can anyone tell me where that goes and then must split off to the speakers. I have power from the deck to where it plugs into the harness and no power at the speakers.
