IT is very simple to do without knowing which color is which. You do this by getting a voltmeter from Radioshack, etc.

You Need to find these 3 wires.
12+ Battery (has voltage to it without key in ign)
12+ Accessory (has voltage only when key forward or in acc position)

Once you found these, the others are speaker wires. Turn the stereo on and clip one of them and listen which speaker quits working. Reconnect the clipped wire by stripping off a little bit of insulation and then find its mate. Do this over and over to figure out which speaker wire is which.

There may be a few extra wires if you have steering wheel stereo controls but don't worry about that, just worry about finding each wire I described above and away you go.

Will a BOSS BV9563B stereo work in my 2002 Pontiac sunfire? If so, how do I do the wires? The connector is completely different than the stereo.

Check at your local car stereo installation store, or on eBay. You should easily be able to find an aftermarket harness for your car that will easily attach to the harness for your Boss stereo.
