Default 2000 Kia Sephia Radio Wiring Diagrams Incorrect

Hello there everyone,

I have a 2000 Kia Sephia LS (Edit) with a Manual Transmission. It has Power Windows, Power Locks, and a CD Player Radio (no cassette). I'm trying to replace the radio with a new Boss radio because when I traded for the car, the CD player never worked (plus I want an aux in for my iPhone). After inspecting my new radio I proceeded to remove my old radio and decided to splice the new radio in rather than buying a new wire harness. Only problem is... upon searching the internet, all of the wiring diagrams I've found are incorrect for my vehicle.

The diagram floating around websites for a 2000 Kia Sephia is as follows:

2000 Kia Sephia Car Stereo Radio Wiring Diagram
Car Radio Constant 12V+ Wire: Blue/Red
Car Radio Ignition Switched 12V+ Wire: Blue/Black
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black
Car Stereo Illumination Wire: Red/Black
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: N/A
Car Stereo Amplifier Trigger Wire: N/A
Front Speakers Size: 4″ Speakers
Front Speakers Location: Doors
Left Front Speaker Wire (+): Black/Yellow
Left Front Speaker Wire (-): Blue/Orange
Right Front Speaker Wire (+): Blue/Green
Right Front Speaker Wire (-): Light Green
Rear Speakers Size: 6 1/2″ Speakers
Rear Speakers Location: Rear Deck
Left Rear Speaker Wire (+): Green/Red
Left Rear Speaker Wire (-): Green/Black
Right Rear Speaker Wire (+): Blue/White
Right Rear Speaker Wire (-): Red/Blue

However, I have:
Blue/Light Green
Black/Orange
Black/ With what looks like another Orange, may be old and Red
Black/Green
Black/White (might be yellow?)
Black
Light Green/Yellow
Green
Green/Orange
Green/White (might be yellow?)
Yellow/Red
Yellow/White
Pink

I thought that maybe my wires were just old and the colors had faded.. However after seeing a three solid colored wires (Green, Pink, and of course the Black ground) I definitely know that something is amiss. Any help that can be provided would save me a ton of trouble.

Thanks much,
CS

For some reason too, and quite odd, the Kia Tech Info site has ETM data for the audio on the 1999 and the 2001 Kia Sephia Model, but not the 2000. I'm going to attempt to wire it with an educated approach from those two, however, the extra wire concerns me.

Talking

My Wife's car is a 2000 Kia Sephia ... the "KiaStein" ... I installed a Newer Sony Xplod Mp3 + Wma Disc Player, with SW1, SW2, AM & FM Stereo Receiver some years ago:




Then, I drew a Diagram about what I found Specifically on that car's Wirings; I removed each speaker one by one and the Old Stereo Unit, and using a Digital Tester, I Tracked each wire and found where each wire goes, from the Dashboard to each Speaker, and how to connect them.

But I Wrote the info on my Diagram in Spanish
(My mother Language) let me search for it, maybe I could rewrite the meaning of the wires, here...

The other wires are quite Simple to Locate: One shall have permanent 12V (+) Positive for keeping the Stereo's settings memory alive; the other wire shall have ignition controlled 12V Positive (+), then you'll need a Ground (Negative) wire... and the antenna wire.

You can be sure which wire is each of them, using any electronic Tester, is easy.

Seems like the Colours varied between those 2000 sephias
... ... Anyway, using a Tester between the Dashboard's Plug and each speaker's plug is the Best way to find the proper wiring. That was what I did and the Xplod is working flawlessly since then, years ago...

Kind Regards.
