Hello fellow DIY maestros...

Ok, here is my current mission, I wanna DIY a HU installation.

I have one Sony CD HU, which i intend to install into my wira... I have already removed the wira's cassette deck...

but now i realised that the wira's clarion double din doesn't have any description of the wiring codes... i managed to isolate the other socket, which are all the wires to the speakers.

so now left is the 2nd socket, which is the power source wiring. So, i was hoping that anyone can tell me what the colour of each wires represent so that i can tap to the new Sony HU, which has different wiring colour code to represent the same thing. Attached is the pic of the wira clarion socket.

by the way, the wires are,

1) red
2) blue
3) black
4) white/black
5) green/white

thankz!

1) red - constant +12v
2) blue - remote to amp
3) black - ground
4) white/black - not sure... (should be ACC)
5) green/white - small light remote (if not mistaken)

for power wires.. it is best to test with a test bulb.... to avoid any short circuit...
