Radio wiring diagram


Could some one post a pic of the radio wiring diagram for a 1965 Parisienne with front and rear speaker. Thanks

This is from the 1965 Delco radio manual, it's all I could find in there which is not likely much help. 

Are you needing to know wire colours and what the connectors look like?

As I always say when people are trying to diagnose electrical problems: Do you have a shop manual for your car? It has the schematic you're looking for.

It 's too late tonight to look but I'll try to check tomorrow. I may have a harness I can take pics of and give you some details on how to hook it up.

generally the power (ignition) supply for the radio is orange wire, dimmer controlled light for the dial is gray wire and front speaker is green. Optional rear speaker wires were blue.

If the car had only a front speaker (rear speaker was an option) then the wiring sequence was as follows:

...front speaker had a green wire that had a 5 port connector (4 empty ports) that plugs into the radio.
...power connector from dash harness (orange and gray wires and an empty 3rd port) plugs into the radio connector

If you added a rear speaker (with fader) it came with a harness that would plug directly into the radio and then the front speaker and in turn the power connector would plug into the other end of the rear speaker harness (as the above sketch shows).

Thanks guys got things working. Had radio checked outand fader switch checked. Had to do a bit of repair to the tuner in the radio. front speaker works but isnt good and reap speaker is dead so will replace both.only wiring that was hacked was the rear speaker harness, probably from someone trying to add speakers at one time.

Remember that these original radios need 10 ohm speakers. Using modern 4 ohm speakers will gradually burn out the radio diodes.
