I don't have the wiring chart, but if your Bronco still has the factory plug, for about $10 you can get the adapter with the loose ends. Check Walmart. The box will have the wiring color code.

If I remember the constant is red and holds the memory of the radio. It is connected directly to the battery. The yellow wire is the switched and hooks to the ignition so the radio can only be turned on when the ignition is on. If you want to run the radio without the key, you can run the switched through a toggle switch wired direct to the battery.

Tony....you have that backwards. Yellow is constant and red is ignition for the industry standard aftermarket radios. Constant power means just that...a continuous power supply. Ignition or switched power means it is controlled by the ignition key.
