Yellow wire should be your remote turn on/12V source and the black is typically a neutral or ground wire. You should be able to connect to your car adapter wire for wire and the ones aren't being used I would just cut it and put black electrical tape around the end.

Just installed jvc kd-s16 and it loses power after 5 seconds. Used proper wiring harness and installed in 1996 f150


Connect Yellow to Battery (always 12V), red to ignition, and black to ground. Disconnect all others. Check it. If the radio stays on and plays CD, then radio is good. You may check other wiring

I cant get power is my harness missing wires?


Yes, your red wire is for ignition, yellow wire is for battery and black is ground. The red ignition wire is for the radio to turn off and on with the ignition. The yellow is always hot, for memory.
