Question about Car Audio & Video
When dealing with vehicle wiring, assume NOTHING! Your best bet is to go to a place that sells adapter plugs (wal-mart will probably even have them) and save yourself the hassle of trying to figure out the factory wiring. It will plug directly into the vehicle wiring harness and will have wire colors that should match exactly with most aftermarket car stereos saving you the guesswork. As an installer for over 15 years I have seen many attempts at wiring to a factory system without an adaptor plug and the results range from the system not working to doing major electronic damage to the stereo and even the vehicle.
In addition to it being a headache to try and figure out, many newer vehicles use some of those wires as data carrying lines and there are things in the factory stereo which control other things in the car ie: door chimes, air bags and others.
If you are hell bent on doing it the way you have started, please provide vehicle information and I can advise you further although I do not recommend doing it that way.
