    black-ground
    black/green-ground
    white/purple-constant 12volt
    blue-amplifier turn on
    red/blue- illumination *the blue light*
    white/blue- 12 volt switched
    brown-unsure
    yellow-unsure
    light blue-unsure
    orange/yellow-antenna turn on



    *NOTE: I will update when I find out more this is not the complete diagram colors I RECOMEND you to buy a connector to save you the headache. This is the diagram without the connector most online articles will show you with the harness cut this is all. If you happen to cut the harness keep the solid blue wire away from the other*WARNING the blue wire will pop fuses*


    sources: my stupidity and many headaches

    To be a bit more accurate C257:

    1. Does not have a Black/Green wire, it has a Black/Light Green wire.
    2. Does not have a Blue wire, it has a Dark Blue wire.
    3. Does not have a Red/Blue wire, it has a Light Blue/Red wire.
    4. Does not have a White/Blue wire, it has a White/Light Blue wire.
    5. Does not have a Brown, Yellow or Light Blue wire.

    The connector is 8 pin with #5 unused.

    7 wires:

    DB - O/Y - BK/LG - LB/R - W/LB - BK - W/P

    Sorry to disappoint but the second plug (line level feed) to the power amplifier in the trunk have the following colors:

    Light Blue
    Purple/White
    Black
    White/Red
    Yellow
    Light Blue/Black
    White/Orange
    Light Green

    No brown or red wires.

    I know what those wires feed. Just as I mentioned before they feed line level audio to the power amplifier in the trunk.

    RF+, RF-, LF+, LF-, RR+, RR-, LR+, LR-

    Having said that Ford shows no specific labels on them, but it wouldn't be that hard to figure out with a speaker or DMM.

    I don't understand why anyone would install an aftermarket radio into a car without the applicable harnesses readily available from vendors like Crutchfield.

    A couple months back I installed a Kenwood KDC-152 Receiver in my '92 TC. After the radio harness was wired it was plug and play with the new harness and the amplifier bypass harness. The entire install kit was $14.95.

    Good luck.
