Re: setting the clock
Wiring harness colors have been fairly standardized for many years. The blue/white lead is the "Amplifier turn-on lead", and can be connected to the remote turn-on lead of an external amplifier.
To set the clock, press and hold BAND and DISP to display the clock. Press and hold BAND and DISP until the display flashes. SEARCH left to adjust the hours; right to adjust the minutes. Press BAND to set.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Orange goes to the switch on the emergency brake. This allows the DVD player to play movies with the brake on ( liability issue...people sued and bankrupted a manufacturer because they watched tv while driving and some people got killed) should be the light green wire at the switch on the ebrake handle.
Blue is used on a vehicle with factory analog steering wheel controls
pink is connected to the back up lights and activates the backup camera feature if you have a back up camera
blue w/white stripe...best guess has to do with infra red remote ...possible allows an ir eye to be installed.
I would suggest go ogling the model number for a wiring diagram or owners manual if you don't have one.
Wiring harness connections as described in the installation manual:

what you have there is a good panasonic head unit. the solid blue wire is going to be used for an automatic antenna.

you may have orange wires in your harness,
or brown ones. these you dont really need
the orange wires are for your dash board dimming lights
and the brown one is for Tele, Muting.

I have this alarm / remote start / keyless entry system and I have the poorly translated installation manual. Everything in mine installed fine in my 2005 suzuki aerio (except the power locks as the manual is worthless in that area) but I have heard nothing but horror stories from others online since I installed it.
I don't recommend you install it but if you really are determined, here is what the manual says (or tried to say and I spent 4 hrs interpretting / correcting it:
8 wire harness:
-- The 4 wire connector connects to the 4 wires harness part of the 3 relays
-- The yellow connects to the yellow of the breaker relay yellow
-- yellow w/black stripe connects to the oil sensor on the motor (look for single wire connected to sensor and generally a heat shield wrap/weave, mine was blue)
-- orange connects to the brake switch on the brake pedal -- the blue connects to the door switch /dome light trigger
12 wire harness:
-- 6 central locking wires orange, yellow, and white plus the same 3 with black stripe.. Unfortunately the manual is not clear as to where they connect. The next page of the manual shows diagrams but they mysteriously add a white stripe to all the colors and the white wires apparently become green. I suspect that orange is not likely used in most installations and for positive door lock types (the most popular), yellow goes to unlock and yellow w/ black stripe goes to lock signal and the 2 whites go to 12v+. This is only a guess so don't hold me to it.
-- black is grounded to frame
-- Red is 12v+
-- red w/ black stripe goes to power trunk release (if equipped)
-- The 2 browns go to the left and right turn signals
-- The pink goes to the alarm
Ignition switch connections
The breaker relay:
-- blue goes to the ACC ON wire
-- Cut the ignition wire and connect the 2 greens to each end
-- Yellow connects to the yellow of the 8 wire harness
The 3 relays:
-- 4 wire harness connects to the 4 wire connector of the 8 wire harness
-- the 3 reds connects to the 12v+ red of the ignition switch (or thru the firewall to the battery)
-- black connects to the ignition on the downstream side of the 2 greens of the breaker relay
-- white connects to ACC ON
-- blue connects to the starter

Note: using an optional snap on wire harness adapter will simplify the wiring. Most snap on
wire harness adapters have already converted and color coded the wires from the auto
makers in dash wire harness to match typical aftermarket radio wire colors.
** The wire colors listed in the chart above are typical for these vehicles during these years
but may not be the exact colors for this vehicle. This is another reason to use a snap on
wire harness adapter. **

If there is still no sound, you probably hooked up the unit's wires wrong. Try switching the wires coming off of the back of your head unit so that the wire that is supposed to be connected to the amp turn on in your factory harness isn't connected to the antenna lead or something like that.
I don't know what the Pioneer wires look like, on my Sony there are two blue wires, one with a white stripe on it and one just plain blue. The wire with the white stripe on is the one that should be connected to the amp turn on in the factory harness.
