things to consider:
Does it have a factory amplifier?
Is the factory harness still present?
Does it still have the speakers present?
You are going to only have a certain amount of wires... If the factory harness is still there you can simply purchase an aftermarket or just look at one in a local store on what wires are what.
you would have your:
gray and gray w/ black
purple and purple w/ black
green and green w/ black
white and white w/ black
these are normally used as an after market clip on harness for that factory wiring. (left front, right front, left rear, right rear)
Obviously your going to have the constant (yellow), ignition (red) and the ground (Black);
so the others would be either a remote (amp or power antenna) usually white with blue strip and dimmer normally orange for the after market harness, and the others will be the speakers.
What you COULD try is using a 9v battery and picking up the wires that are solid and striped and touching them to the 9v battery.
When you find the two that make that speaker make a popping sound you have found that speaker.
Once you have found the speaker that pops, you should be able to take it out and look at the color of the wires to make sure you will have the pos and neg for each speaker correctly set.
You dont want some speakers being in phase while other are out of phase. if so the sound wont be right.
