    98 SC2 Abundance of Dark Green Wires

    http://sixthsphere.com/showthread.ph...o-Wiring-Guide

    I was reattaching the factory radio harness on a 98 SC2 last night and there are 3 dark green wires and 2 tan wires... what's up with the duplicates.. I just attached them to random ones, radio obviously won't work... any suggestions other than just run new wires to speakers?

    Scratches head...

    Take it to an audio shop in my opinion.

    Obviously either someone fucked with it in the past (If you're not the original owner)... or someone at the factory back in the day decided to be a dick.

    Its just been hacked off at the plug shane. All the wires are stock. Tony do the foil wrapped wires match up or are even those duplicate colors. Dumbest radio harness ever. There was a reason I never reattached that plug when I went and got a new one.

    I'm perfectly capable of running new wires, I redid a harness on a 99 before in a similar situation and either it wasn't like this or I got lucky, I don't recall as that was 2010. If there's no secret and somebody was just being lazy that day I'll just run new cables. There aren't speakers installed at the moment as previous owner had nicer than factory stuff in there so I can't do the 9v battery test method to find the pairs either. Tonight i'll do the speakers then see what happens.

    `Best bet would be to ohm wires to the speakers and match it up with the factory schematics. Pain in the ass, but only proper way to do it imo

    figures this is something we'd suffer from as well.
