Smile Kia Rio Radio Problem/Install

Ok so i pulled out my old radio (Factory) and put in a new Sony

Problems i need help on please

i know Red wire and black wire are live (always on) and negative

i cant find the wire on the old harness which i have not cut for the accs and when you turn on the car

any one have a wire diagram for this car to make life easy also would a Kia spectra harness fit this plug to save me cutting the harness seen at super cheap for $25 or if not any one on the Gold Coast have a spare one for sale


Many thanks
Steven

If you can hang until Monday, I might be able to pull up a schematic for you at work.

I might upgrade the radio too and going with a harness when I do.

Think about changing the speakers too if your new radio is a lot more powerful. My speakers rattle now when I play a hard rock CD. I cant imagine what will happen when the watts are doubled or trippled with the radios I have looked at.

If I have the extra money I might even take it somewhere and have them do everything at once, radio, speakers and all that.
