626 Stereo Wiring Diagram

65 posts in this topic

 

I have a 95 Mazda 626 and need to know how to make a double din radio fit and what all I need to get it to fit...the people on sonicelectronix said it would not fit but i know there is a way...plez help

Double din might fit...the little pocket below the radio just pops out. However I can't be certain that there's enough clearance, particularly depth, to fit every double din.

Your best bet it's too just use the metal cage it comes with and bend the little fingers out until the cage is snug. Then slide the unit in.

To all the other posters over the years, thanks for your contributions as well. It's nice to see a thread I started 10 years ago has helped so many folks out.

 

My double din fit in my 94 just had to cut and smooth out the little bar after removing the "pocket"

Good call on the little bar...not sure if my mx6 had that, or if every year 626 did. The center console layout did change slightly over the years.

This is what I got for the stock Bose sound system in my car. Hopefully someone else can use this information...

*EDIT*

This is from a 1999 Mazda 626 ES. I don't quite know which other years/models would be compatible. If you do know, PM me and I will edit as necessary.

On my 2000 Mazda 626 ES-V6, C is illumination while F is positive dimmer. Tested on the car these two days.

Well after reading all this for few days, I found out that the 2 wires( whatever color they may be in tour car) that go for lights and illumination if they are spliced into whatever else that instead of blowin a fuse the dimmer switch shorted out. I found one at a salvage yard for few $ and everything works. Do Not cut wires! Just buy a harness, but if like me you are not patient then do not let wires touch at all and the wires that are left over cap them dudes off. If the switch fix didnt work then try the multiplex module, its white and behind the fuse area under the dash, thats is if you know all your bulbs work and the fuse is good

I wanted to add MY INFO for my 1999 Mazda 626 LX , it had a single din but I replaced the radio with one I got from a 2002 Ford Explorer it is a double din and I took the storage and radio bracket out and bought harness from Vol Audio from Ebay and since I live in Tn they were close. I have the picture's from the org. radio that was in the car and was stock when I bought the car new. The SCOSCHE HARNESS I bought is MA02B and plugged right in and is color coded for the new radio std. of color's which made the install very easy.I also have the pictures I'll post, The double din radio fits right in but you will have to make a mount for the back of the radio to sit in ( it's a rubber plug ) you will lose the storage under stock radio, since it was a single din. I don't have picture's of the new install but I'll come back at later time and post. These picture's are of the stock radio.post-29547-0-57900100-1456339486_thumb.jpost-29547-0-81722100-1456339511_thumb.jpost-29547-0-22753100-1456339514_thumb.jpost-29547-0-84866700-1456339517_thumb.j

 The first pic is the model number of the stock radio, second is the plug, thrid is the stock harness in the car, last photo is the wire dia. for the Scosche plug

 I hope this will help anyone that is replacing there radio. I replaced mine because the cd player would not read disc and the radio I used gas a cassette and disc player and has the plugs for an amp. I never converted my cassette's to disc yet so this worked great for me and I was able to get the harness and connet without cutting any wires or plugs...

This is the radio I installed and is working great.post-29547-0-06516000-1456341445_thumb.j

  I wanted to add this is the radio from the 2002 Ford Explorer and the the Scosche harness is FD16B  which I connected to the Scosche harness MA02B and was able to just plud in to the stock plugs , the only problem I had was getting the radio to dim at night , There is 3 different orange wire's and I have tried 2 of them but still doesn't dim but That's ok for now. The power antenna works when you turn the Radio on-off so it doesn't work with the key like the stock radio ( radio model is above this post ). The stock radio had an extra plug on the back which I assume is for an amp? I had bought these plugs off ebay and they cost me$10.00 dollar's for both. I know this is an older Thread but hope t will help others...

I'm sorry I've been at work and I carry a Old flip phone so company can't text me ! 

. I got the package back out and I was looking for this wire but they don't show this one. Here's what I know the other plug is for rear speakers ?, I can't remember if that was for all speakers, I would look at my radio but the way I installed it it's a job to get the radio out. I also did a lot of research to find wires. I did find a good site but can't remember name but it did have complete list. If you use DVM see if it has power key off then on and how many Vcc. If 12vcc powers radio or  if it has very little power it's for light dimmer. You have to check all wires with key on and off . It's been a while so I don't rely know but I'll look around see if I find so new here for you to look at.

Here's what I  found www.modifiedlife.Com look for your car. But best easy way would go to junkyard get the plugs wire them in, then buy the adapter for radio from scosche and also plug for radio you want to put in. What I found was that there were so many different ways to go, is your radio a FMS OR ? If you get plugs it would really make things simple. But Scosche has a number if you need to ask ? 800-363-4490 EXT 3 for wire color , Mazda kit MA02B.

I think I got it , It's for light dimmer and you can check , Turn on light's get your multi meter out and check for voltage (also check with key on first before you turn lights on)

With lights on use your dimmer switch and watch Vcc  it will be lower than 12volts and will go up and down when you move the dimmer. But still think that getting plug from junkyard is a good Idea and really it makes getting the adapter plug from Scocshe easy to wire up as the wire's are standard in color on the adapter plug to the industry... meaning that they would match up in color on the stereo you are installing (aftermarket) if it's a Factory stereo then it be a bit harder but if you buy the adapter for Factory stereo as I did makes life simple I got my adapter plugs from Volunteer stereo in Knoxville Tn , so I just drove over and piked them up after I ordered them on ebay , I put the adapter number in other post. Sorry for confusion it's been a while ,

Alright so I found a reverse harness (stock male connector) and I just need to know what the Red wire is as well as the Gray wire. Thanks!

For anyone with a '99 626 that has had its stock stereo harness cut out, I recommend getting the Scosche MA02RB (https://www.walmart.com/ip/Scosche-1990-2003-Mazda-Speaker-Connector/23000253 ). Its exactly like the original stock harness. After many hours of looking at diagrams and taking notes I've finally figured it out and I'm going to share what I did.

I have been at work so I came Home and took Dash out to get wire colors so everyone with a 99 626 would have where they should go to(in case plugs were cut out) Also the second color is for  Scorshe plug.   

Big plug with release button top(Reference)  I'll start with top row wire's

Blue with Black stripe goes to  Gray

Blue with Yellow stripe goes to White

Red  goes to Orange with White stripe

Blue with Yellow stripe goes to Yellow

Blue with White stripe goes to Red

Bottom Row

Blue Orange stripe goes to Gray Black stripe

Red  with Black stripe goes to White with Black stripe

Gray goes to Orange

Yellow with Red stripe goes to Blue

SMALL PLUG RELEASE BUTTON ON TOP( THIS IS FOR REAR SPEAKERS) 

Green with Black stripe goes to Green ( this is the only wire in top row)

BOTTOM ROW

Yellow with Green stripe goes to Purple with Black stripe

Green goes to Purple 

Green with Orange stripe goes to Green with Black stripe

   Refer to the pic of the Scorshe Chart in above post, the colors for new plug from Scorshe are industry standards for most if not all new aftermarket stereo's . So using the stock Mazda colors matched to Scorshe aftermarket plug  you'll know where the wire  goes and what it does,( I did have issue's with the light dimmer,there's 3 in aftermarket plug) and I never got it correct ...

    So this was real easy for me since the Mazda Scorshe plug color's matched the same color's on Scorshe plug to my aftermarket Radio(FORD FACTORY RADIO) Funny I don't have any CD's but I have a lot of cassette's ,even funnier I still have the 4 track player and 8 track player I had in High School and yes there was a 4 track player before 8 track's, 4 tracks didn't have a capstan wheel the 8 track had capstan wheel built into the tape itself , a bit of History from the last Century .  

   I was looking around  at Google Android head's that you can put in and I think they would fit perfect in the space (Double Din ) and you can hack root them and add some great feature's granted they are a bit pricey but I'd like to have one with TV DVD player but an older one would be cost effective, just to see if if I liked it. Also the last post I made about the light dimmer might have been wrong so I'll try and Edit it. I HOPE THIS HELPS ALL  should be close on 98-02 just check color's to Pic's above.
