You will need to trace the speaker wires to see if they are disconnected anywhere in the harness. are you sure the speakers are OK? Fopr wire locations on the radio try going to: http://www.installdr.com/ They list the pin locations and wore coding you will need. Good luck
From the factory wiring there will be a red/white wire with a constant 12v and an ignition switched 12v wire which is red/gray. Hook those to corresponding wires on the aftermarket wiring harness. You may have the constant and switched wires backwards. Also the antenna trigger wire (usually blue on aftermarket radios) should be hooked up to the green/red wire on the factory harness.

Removing the radio bezel is easy, which is the plastic surrounding the radio including the heater vents. Slide something thin, or your fingers underneath from the bottom of the bezel and gently pull towards you, carefull not to break any tabs. Once you have one tab out keep working all around the bezel until its off. You will then see the radio and how its mounted. There are 4 screws holding the radio in. Remove and put in the cup holder so you dont lose them. Pull the radio out towards you until you can reach behind and unclip it from the harness. You must also remove the antenna wire from the back of the radio. (before you begin its a good idea to unhook the battery)
To install an Ipod they sell the Ipac-chy, which is a can-bus unit. The unit clips into the radio harness then the other side clips into the car harness. They are around $80. It comes with a patch cable that charges the ipod as well. Look around online for the best price. Metra I believe has one too.
