I broke the wiring harness that goes into the back of the car stereo and am not sure where to find a new one. I looked through the manual and there is no parts list or manufacturer phone number. Any ideas? Thanks!

Not quite sure what you mean, did you break a wire harness loom that keeps all the wires bundled together or did you break an actual plug connector?
If you broke a loom clip them use black electrical tape to wrap the wires back together. If you broke a plug, go to the dealer and buy the new plug or harness. the new plug will have mew wires already attached and all you'll have to do is match color, cut, splice, solder, heat shrink and plug back in.
If you have another problem for some reason or another that I haven't hit on then I'd suggest going to your local parts stor or dealership and buy the repair manual for your car, turn to the electricl schematic section and follow your color codes from there..
Pretty much the only thing to do is remove the harness you spliced into the incorrect harness and use crimp connectors (the GOOD ones, not those cheap plastic blue ones) to match wire-for-wire and restore the original circuitry. THEN have at the correct harness and reinstall the stereo wiring. It's a PITA all right, but it really is the best way to fix your problem.
Go to your local auto store and get the Hanes auto manual for this care and they should have a wiring schematic for you to follow also you can look your new stereo up on the web and find out what each colored wire goes to what!!! Good luck
Connect each wire yourself if your were unable to obtain a wiring harness to install your car stereo.
Connect the positive wire from each speaker to the positive connector on the back of the stereo first. Then connect the negative wire from each speaker to the negative connector on the back of the stereo. If there is only one wire coming from the speakers, the speakers are grounded at the chassis. In this case you will need to install new speaker wiring.
Connect the ground (-/black) wire of the stereo to a screw or bolt near where the radio is mounted in the dash. Make sure the wire is attached to metal, not plastic or fiberglass.
Connect the 12 constant and ignition power wires (both +/red) to the new stereo. Refer to your stereo's installation manual to make sure these go to the correct places.

Power for memory, power when key on or accesories,etc, then all the speaker wires. Have you stopped at a stereo sales place, or autoparts place and asked for an adapter harness to go from your vehicle to an aftermarket stereo? It will make it much easier, much cleaner in case of removal later & will probably save a big headache too.
You will need to go buy a wiring harness adapter from your local Walmart (usually cheapest there) or Local Electronics place (ie Best Buy). The wire harness that goes out from the radio goes into the Adapter and the adapter plugs into the car harnesses. Also these Adapters come with the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. They typically run 10 - 15 bucks depending on where you get them. Thanks for using FixYa!
First, make sure you have the right plug in your radio, does it look right? if it does, than buy a wire harness for your particular vehicle from best buy, circuit city, or any stereo shop, this will connect to the plug in the back of your pioneer, making sure you seal up all the connections between wires. The package the purchased wiring harness came in will have coresponding colors and locations for each wire, and the wires themselves might be printed the same way. Its not too hard, just be sure to wire'em up correctly. good luck
