Radio Electrical Plugs

Does anyone know how many plugs the original radio on a 69 Camaro had and what color on the plug wires. I'm putting the car back together and everything is hooked up except the radio and I have two plugs that I can't identify. Both are flat with two contact wires. The one plug has a black wire and a yellow wire side by side which I think is the power for the radio, and the other plug is flat with two contacts side by side. The one contact wire has two pink wires together and the other contact has one green wire. They don't show either of these wires in the wiring diagrams or any wiring for the radio for that matter.

The wiring diagram doesn't even show a plug with those colors.

Red face Re: Radio Electrical Plugs

Sorry I don't have a 69 diagram to look through here ...
Isn't 'Pink' an key-on accessory lead?
'Green' should be a speaker lead.
Is this a standard single speaker AM (RPO-U63?) or did this vehicle have a rear speaker/fader or AM/FM option of some sort?

Hopefully somone will chime-in soon with a diagram.

Re: Radio Electrical Plugs

Pink should be "key on" 12v to any gauges you might have.

Re: Radio Electrical Plugs

I don't see anything on the schematic that would indicate a plug with double pink wires and a green wire. I'm stumped on this one.

It was nothing fancy. Just a single front speaker. No other options except rear mount antenna. The antenna is retractable but I don't know if it came as stock equipment. The plug that I am refering to looks like it is factory, coming out of the main harness.

Re: Radio Electrical Plugs

Black flat plug from the speaker plugs into the radio, white plug from wire harness plugs into the back of the black plug.

Re: Radio Electrical Plugs

Pink and Light Green is usually the back-up/neutral safety switch.?.?

Would that have a double pink and one light green wire? This wire doesn't come down in that area though and the car is a factory 4 speed with the backup switch on the transmission. This wire comes out of the main harness at the same point as the radio wire, thats why I thought it might be for the radio.

Re: Radio Electrical Plugs

I have a '68 with a '67 radio. So, I was kind of using the '69 AIM and thinking out loud...

I have a Muncie and my back up switch lead penitrates the firewall just above the transmission hump. It only has two Pink and one Light Green wires. A short pigtail plugs into it with Dark and Light Green wires. The other end of the pigtail is a connector at the firewall. Anyway... The '69 schematic shows a bunch of Pink wires coming together in the same area. Since I have never had my hand on one, I don't/didn't know if there is a "main splice" or they met up at other locations and/or connectors... The only other Pinks I see are in the instruments and warning lights.

My radio power is Yellow, also... The '67-8 AM/FM mono radio uses one power and two speaker wires in the 3 slot connector (really one slot plugging into a three slot that plugs into the radio). The radio chasis is the ground. If one believes the '69 AIM drawings, it is similar. I have no idea about other radio options...

Sorry if I'm confusing anyone. Just trying have some fun solving a "puzzle"...

Re: Radio Electrical Plugs

I don't know what the plug is for since everything is working, so I guess I will just let it hang. Thanks to everyone for the ideas.
