Go buy a wiring kit from autozone or walmart....Just look up your year of car and it clicks right into your factory wiring...Then all you have to do is color code your wires fromm the stereo that you're putting in.

As for the head units leads they should be marked or identified in the installation manual. There are but only three wires here that I might be able to help you with. Two of the wires should have in-line fuse links (12+ volt power) and they are the constant feed (for memory) and the switched feed (for operation). The ground lead is typically solid black.
This is a general factory radio color code. Wire colors in your car might be different
than colors described here. Use the given colors for reference purposes only.
Always test wires to make sure they are correct.
Good luck Aduz
