Hello... I will try and help you with your problem. I am assuming that you have cut the factory harness off in the truck? If you have and you can reconnect it, I would recommend doing this and then you can purchase a wire harness adapter and then just match the colors. The benefit in using an adapter harness is the ease of the installation, and the more you change the radio in the truck, the shorter the wires will get. If you do not have the factory harness, or cannot reconnect the old one, here is the hardwire code:
Wire purpose: Truck color: Alpine harness:
6 1/2" Doors
Left Front (+)
Left Front (-)
Right Front (+)
Light Green Gray
Right Front (-)
6 1/2" Rear Corners
Left Rear (+)
Left Rear (-)
Right Rear (+)
Right Rear (-)

If you have any orange wires there for the Illumination dimmer. (head unit dims when you turn the lights on). The white and gray are front speakers and purple and green are for the rear, solid being + and black striped being -. (gray and purple are right channels)Make sure that the RCA plugs go to the input side of the amp. I hope this helps, Ray
White RCA is for left input/output and red is for right input/output. The purple wires are for the rear right speaker, the green are for the left rear, the white are for the front left and the gray are for the right front.
Hello uze7, Here is the wiring match up for a 2009 Subaru Forester using the Metra 70-7552 wiring harness: NOTE: The actual harness will be listed as a Nissan harness, but has been used by Subaru since 2007. Also, I'm assuming that your Sony deck uses the standard color code. If not, you should have a manual that lists the function along with the colors. Match the wiring by function, not by color (although the colors may be the same). 2009 Subaru Forester Radio Wiring Color Code: Battery BLUE/RED (+) RADIO HARNESS Accessory YELLOW/RED (+) RADIO HARNESS Ground BLACK (-) RADIO HARNESS Illumination VIOLET (+) RADIO HARNESS Dimmer BLACK/WHITE (-) RADIO HARNESS Power Antenna YELLOW/BLACK (+) RADIO HARNESS LF Speaker (+) BROWN LF Speaker (-) BROWN/WHITE RF Speaker (+) BLUE/WHITE RF Speaker (-) BLUE/YELLOW LR Speaker (+) WHITE/BLACK LR Speaker (-) RED/YELLOW RR Speaker (+) GRAY RR Speaker (-) GRAY/RED Metra Harness: Yellow ? 12V Constant Red ? 12V Accessory Black - Ground Orange ?

I don't know what pins are what on the METRA harness, but the wires coming from the back of the Pioneer unit should be:
black ground red accessory (KEY) yellow memory constant power, blue is remote, orange is for the dimmer, green with black is left rear neg.and green is positive, violet black is right rear negative and violet is positive, white is left front positive and white with black is negative, gray black is right front negative and gray is positive.
If you don't have the pioneer harness (and so these wire colors dont' mean much to you) just message back here, and I'll map those wire colors to pin positions on the back of the unit.
