I would guess that GM didn't hook these wires up to the factory stereo, as the factory stereo may not have the front back fade feature. They put the wires in to save you time if you decide to put another stereo in. Look under the dash, you will probably see the other end there. I'm not sure about this. Just a guess, but my tractor trailer is set up that way, and I only have 2 speakers, but wires are run to all possible speaker sites. Good luck.

You can't use any of those - the large connector at the OEM speakers is because the rears are amplified. Your factory head unit puts out a line level signal to the rear speakers. There's an amplifier on the driver's side rear speaker (the box around the magnet that you can see from inside the trunk).

You need to either replace the head unit with an aftermarket one to drive your new speakers, or you need to tap into the amp connector and find the line level wires, break them out, put RCA plugs onto them, and plug them into an aftermarket amp, which you'd use to power your rear speakers. Doing it that way allows you to keep the factory head unit.

Wire harness to switch from stock stereo to cd player will not fit the wires that are supposed to? so what wires are the speaker wires


Not sure I understand your question. Did you buy a harness adapter for GMC, or are you trying to just cut the connector off the factory radio and solder it to your CD player? If the latter, below is the color code for your factory wiring.
