you should never cut the wires on your factory harness... metra and other companys have harnesses that fit your car and would provide you with a correct wire color code you need to hook up a aftermarket stereo keep that in mind but i will post the wire diagram u are looking for

May not be 'loose' wiring but you are headed in the right direction if you haven't already found the problem.
This is a common problem and is almost always caused by battery-related cables.
You will need to remove both cables at the battery and clean them with a $3 tool that will do both the female and male clamp parts.
You should also remove and clean the positive cable from the starter itself.
Since you are already dirty, take the extra five minutes and remove and clean the point at which the negative battery cable is connected to the chassis.
At each of these points, thoroughly protect the cleaned connections with at least a glob of petroleum jelly or (if you are at an auto parts store anyhow) 'dielectric' grease. Either of these will delay the next cleaning cycle by years.
ALWAYS remove the negative (ground) cable FIRST.
The bad connection is dropping ALL of the 12 volts when trying to start since the starter draws 100+ amperes and any cruddy connection is enough to drag down (drop) the voltage so far down that all devices that depend on getting at least 9-10 volts will reset themselves.
After the engine is running, a bad connection becomes less important since the other items being serviced don't draw anywhere like that amount of current and the alternator can operate these and still charge the battery regardless of the bad junction.

I had the same problem with my 1995 Honda Accord V6 2.7L a year ago. It was a pain to have Honda diagnose the problem because it was intermittent and every time I took my car in to the dealership they said they couldn't reproduce the problem, but the longer you wait the more frequently your tachometer will fluctuate. I finally stopped by the dealership when the tachometer was jumping and they were able to diagnose the problem. In my case there was a faulty resistor in the ignition coil, but the entire ignition coil needs to be replaced. I don't know anything about cars but I know this fixed my problem. I went directly though Honda's service center so I know they charged me more than an independent repair shop but I'm looking at my invoice now and I paid $150 for the ignition coil and $200 for labor. After Honda diagnosed the problem I searched for "1995 honda accord ignition coil tachometer" and found that other people had the same problem and replacing the ignition coil was the fix. Hope this helps.

you can go to radio shack or a place that sells stereo equipment and get an installation kit and I hope he did not cut the plugs off the old radio because it would be easy all you would have to do is plug in your installation kit to your old plugs and it will tell you which wire goes where most kits are around $15.00
