1982 Bronco Radio Wiring Diagram Help

Hello, everyone. I've recently acquired a 1982 Ford Bronco (5.8L). I'm looking to install a new radio in it, but I have encountered a road block...the previous owner cut the adapters out and left me a bundle of wires to sort through.

My question to everyone is: Do you know where I can find a radio wiring diagram for a 1982 model? I appreciate any and all help. Thank you.

Bronco Info: '83 VIN & title on '93 frame/body w/'95 4.9L & EB paint
The '82 radio was a mechanical AM/FM, so it only had switched power, ground, & illumination. For a modern radio, you'll also need constant power. Fortunately, Ford uses the same wire colors over a WIDE range of years & models, so these are the ones to look for:

Ground = Bk (or R)
Battery = LG/Y
Switch = Y/Bk
Illumination = LB/R

Do you still have the original fuse cover?



I highly recommend finding the OLDEST edition of Haynes you can get. Read this caption:



It doesn't show the radio wiring for anything before '87, but it's still a must-have.

I appreciate the info. I have the book (my dad always told me to buy a Haynes or Chilton repair manual for every vehicle), but I couldn't find any radio info for my '82. I still have the original fuse cover, as well. Your info was exactly what I was looking for. I appreciate it.
