Can someone help me figure out wiring for radio-it has 2 white wires and 1 black comming out from right side.One of these white wires goes to lamp on bottom of radio.Am assumming whites are power leads? Then along with those there is a green wire comming out from center bottom of radio.Thanks in advance Louis.

don't quote me on this, as mine's not right in front of me, grin but if I remember rightly, the green is to the speaker, the white that goes to the lamp hooks to the dash lites, the other white is power from the ign sw and the black should be ground.
place to start - can test it on a battery charger.
