Hi,
I need help identifying what the color codes on the various wires coming out of my stereo are. I am going to install a new stereo, and wondered if anyone has any experience with doing this, and maybe knows of a reference or guide that explains what the various wires go to? I am wondering if maybe Bayliner or someone might have a guide that explains the color code of the wires.

There's a plug with six pins that comes out of the old stereo, and the colors are:

Red with white stripe
Black with white stripe
yellow
white
black (1)
Black (2)

I wish I could help more than a suggestion. Try to probe each wire with an electrical tester for current. Then attach wires to a small speaker to test the wires that no power was detected. Garchar

Thank you for the suggestion. I'll give that a shot. I'm thinking since there were six wires, and the stereo only had two speakers, that means four of the wires are speaker +/- for right and left, and the remaining two are positive and negative. Right now I'm guessing Red is positive, and Black/white stripe is negative. And the other two blacks are speaker negatives, with yellow and white as speaker positives. But I am completely basing this off of a wild guess, so I think I'll do as you say to try with a tester and a speaker i'm not worried about wrecking!

I think I found the answer. Just posting this here in case anyone else runs into the same question and finds my post in search results. I found an old Bayliner Radio with cassette player for sale on Ebay, and printed right on top of it is the wiring instructions!!! These happen to match my wire colors--so here's hoping it's the same on my boat!



If it's hard to read, it says:

Red with white stripe +12V
Black with white stripe Ground
White Left Speaker +
Yellow Right Speaker +
Black Speakers -
