I purchased a pair of off-road lights and installed them and when I ran the blue wire (hot) to the fuse box, I couldn't figure out how to hook it up. So instead, I just hooked the wire to a metal strip that is located at the end of the box that delivers power to it from the battery. Is this okay. Will it fry anything even though the blue wire does have a relay/fuse attached? How do I hook the blue wire to the fuse box?

There may be extra wires you don't need. The basic set of wires on the radio is 4 pairs of colored wires--one black-striped and one plain for each speaker. Yellow is usually accessory power, red is hot, and black is ground. Some additional wires may be one for a power antenna, one for an external amplifyer, and one for facelight (in case it will run on dimmer)
The car should have the following corresponding wires:
Radio 12v--- orange Radio Ground--- black Radio Ignition--- yellow Radio Illumination--- brown Dimmer--- gray Power Antenna--- pink (if you have one) LF Speaker +/- tan - grey RF Speaker +/- lt green - dk green LR Speaker +/- brown - yellow RR Speaker +/- dk. blue- lt. blue
The car or radio could have additional connectors, such as for a subwoofer, CD changer, etc.
Hot at all times from CJB Fuse #1 is pin #9, light green w/ violet stripe wire Hot in start from CJB Fuse #20 is pin 3, Red w/ black stripe wire Hot in Accessory or run from CJB Fuse #8 is pin 10, Black w/ Pink stripe wire.
Grounds in the connector : pin 2, black pin 11 black w/ light green stripe pin 16 black w/ light green stripe. pin #1 light blue w/ red stripe is the instrument illumination, after the cluster dimmer switch.
I would stay away from using the black w/ light green stripe, I seem to recall those are the shields for the speaker pairs.
Bit late on the reply, just caught this one. If you don't have it don't, good luck
At the fuel pump relay you should have 1 full time hot wire. 1 hot wire when you turn on the switch. 1 ground, and the other wire goes to the pump. Test the ground to be sure it is good. If so then jump a hot to the one that goes to the pump and see if it runs.If it does then you have a bad relay or ECM. You can swap the relay with another of the same # from tour fuse box to test it.There is also a ground on top of the frame near the filler neck, check it too. Good Luck

Here are the correct wiring colours and their usage:
GREY: Power IN from the 7.5 amp RADIO #2 fuse (Hot with key ON)
LIGHT BLUE with a YELLOW Tracer: Power IN from the 15 amp RADIO #1 fuse (Hot all of the time)
PINK: LF Speaker +
VIOLET: LF Speaker -
LIGHT GREEN: RH Speaker +
BLUE: RH Speaker -
BLACK: LR Speaker +
YELLOW: LR Speaker -
