Question about Cars & Trucks
This looks like a job for SUPERMAN!!! No, not really! You need to strip the wire ends one by one and put it back together. If you have the key that fits into the switch, you can "assume" that the heavy wires are for the battery point and the ignition point. Take a multimeter (with alligator clips on the leads) and pick any 2 thick wires, hopefully one red and one black and hook them to the meter and put the meter on 200Ohm's scale. Turn the key COMPLETELY to the right (start position)and hold it against the sprig. If you get a short on the meter (almost zero as opposed to an open= infinity). you have the right wires. The red should be the battery and the black should be the ignition!
The accessory wires should be tested using the same method only the key should not be turned all the way only to the point where it stops. THen proceed to check for what wires give you the accessories i that position. Since you have extra wires you ca assume that there are extra accessories that get power from the switch, Some only get power after the key is released but AFTER the accessories position. Keep testing until all wires are LABELED AND UNDERSTOOD.

Tips for a great answer:
HU harness color code pretty much universal.
