Have a look at www.installdr.com, it may have what you need.

Install Doctor doesn't have the right colors (the colors mentioned in the wiring diagram don't match up to what's in my sister-in-law's 2001 focus). Does this focus not have the factory wiring harness anymore?

I would suggest that you invest the $15 and get a wiring kit, it will save you time and you won’t have to butcher the factory harness.

Double check all wires with a voltage meter before making any connections

SOunds good, but i should have also said that this guy is wanting to upgrade every speaker and is adding 3 amps....2 small 2 channels..one for front and one for rear. Hes upgradeing the rear to a higher wattage speaker so we can turn them up louder to get a litte bitt more sound from the rear and a small cheep 300 watt amp for his subs 10"(2)low wattage subs(should be maybe ok)... Im just werking with what this guys wanting but I hear ya about that wire harness.....Also, Thanks for those wire colors!!! Much appricated...and dont worry!?!? I also, double check before makeing CONNECTIONS!

Yeah, i have gotten a few of those....somtimes there flood cars and beeen fixed back up, put in new computers, changesd out or whatever they do to get them back to re-sale. they will sometimes get wire harnesses from another year and echange all the wires...????It could have also been a wrecked car and the door was fom another type/year and they made it work, iono??but,.... I've seen a mexican do whatever it takes to make a dollar, trust me!!! HAHHAHAHAHA Not that this has happened to your sister in laws car. maybe look for rust spots under the carpet and around bolts on the under cariage!(I'mm from houston and flooding in the past 2 years has beeen <<<<<WIDE-SPREAD>>>>> maybe this is why i said all of this. My wifes car had the same thing happen, and i tracked and retraced every wire and had every piece of this car aprart to find this out! TRUST ME! I think I have seen it all! Her car was in the flood, 2 of the 7 speakers were NOT the same colors(2000 MIts Eclipse)nothing ws wrong but(some wire tampering) but,....DAMN I was pisssed that this could happen! Dealerships will do whatever it takes to get a car out sometimes......expecially when they had about 2-4 acres of cars to repair for flooded cars! I seen it! hahaha...Oh well, enough about that, but I would just get a pen and pad out and trace and write down all colrs for your vehicle if you cant find any info for your focus!!! GOOD luck in your findings!posted_image

I've seen all of that too. Living in L.A. I see that more than I need to. None of that could have happened to my sister in law's car because she bought it brand new (it had 0.25 miles on it before the test drive). I didn't get a chance to pull out her radio on thursday and check the colors but I did this morning and they match up to exactly what BBerman posted.
