1986 stereo wiring

Im trying to install a new stereo but the wires dont match the online wire diagram i found. What is the constant 12v+ and the switch 12v+. I heard the switched was either yellow/black or orange/black but I have both wires.

    There is also a wire that is blue/red. I believe this is also illumination. However the new cd player doesnt have an orange wire to hook the illumination to. Do you know how I can hook up those wires? I have no dome light or clock anymore. Also my door locks went out.

Stereo wireing


go to advanced auto parts and buy a connector for your car. just go and give them year, model and make and when you get it connect the same color wires from the stereo to the stereo harness. all of the colors are the same.
