Hi - unfortunatly you can forget colour coding as a means of connecting them as this rarely works. Autoleads sell adaptors to bridge for myour cars wiring look directly to the ISO connector from the Sont. Faining this a trace back or a Haynes manual will let you know what each wireof your loom is for and you sony manual shuld explain the harness
Good luck

I need step by step on how to connect a stereo to my 2001 f-150


radio wires red= key live yellow=battery live. black= grd. The rest are speakers. totalling 8 (others are illumination normally orange. blue and white is aerial antenna. not required) Car colours all vary. Advise getting tester. to test for lives. Check key live by turning on and off key while testing lives. ground is normally always black. Lives are normally alot thicker than rest of wires as is ground. once lives connected you can test speakers by balancing left and right fade rear and front to connect these. As for + - on a loom these are normally hard to distinguish as a speaker can run in reverse. in just sounds alot better when ran properly. But each pair are normally the same colour although one will have a different colour line running down it. Chek out this site for car wiring colours. http://www.caraudiohelp.com/car_alarm_install_guides/car_alarm_install_guides.htm
