Should be a little easier to find these here. If you have any tutorials you want put here PM me and I'll add the links. If there are any tutorials you would like to see done in the future PM me as well and I'll see what I can come up with.

Here is the stereo wiring for the MKII (and I'm pretty sure that it works for the MKIII's too) Swifts.


I've quoted Lihtan on the following as it is very good advice.

The easiest way to be sure what the wires do, is check them with a multimeter or a test light before you wire them up.

Connect one lead to something grounded (like the metal brace under the dash) and the other lead to one of the wires:
• if you get a voltage reading with the ignition in the OFF position, the wire goes straight to the battery
• if you get a voltage reading with the ignition in the ACC position, the wire gets power from Accessory (it will probably also get power from ON as well)
• if you get a voltage reading with the ignition in the ON position, the wire gets power from Ignition/On (check if ACC delivers power too)
• if you don't get any voltage reading from the ignition in any position, turn the lights on to see if it's on a lamp circuit. You should see a voltage fluctuation if you turn the dimmer knob
• if you still don't get any voltage reading from the ignition in any position, trying doing a continuity test to see if it's a ground wire.
• you may also have a factory speaker wire on hand, don't bother trying to test for this, factory speaker wires should be replaced when you install a stereo anyways.
