what stereo are you installing, the audiovox? Or some other one?
If it is an aftermarket ie. pioneer, sony, kenwood, alpine or what ever, for the most part they use a standard color code.
Yellow = 12+ Constant (memory)
Red = 12+ Ignition on
Black = 12- Ground
Blue or Blue/White = Power Antenna trigger or trigger to turn on an amplifier
White = Front Left Speaker +
White/Black = Front Left Speaker -
Gray = Front Right Speaker +
Gray/Black = Front Right Speaker -
Green = Rear Left Speaker +
Green/Black = Rear Left Speaker -
Violet = Rear Right Speaker +
Violet/Black = Rear Right Speaker -
Once you find out which ones are the power wires on your jeep harness hook them up to the stereo so that you can turn it on and get some sound. Then grab any speaker wire pair off the stereo and start touching them to the remaining wires on the jeep harness to see which speaker makes noise. Label it and move on then match them all up to the corresponding wires on the stereo.
TEST ALL OTHER JEEP HARNESS WIRES FOR 12 VOLTS BEFORE HOOKING SPEAKER WIRES TO THEM!!! You will fry your stereo if one of them has power.
