This is the wiring diagram for it, I would suggest you buy a factory plug, it eliminates all the wiring and trying to figure out which wires go where. Go to a local stereo store and ask for a plug for your model numbered stereo, corresponding with the make, model and year of your vehicle. Their usually around $30
The install diagram indicates the Audio Interrupt wire goes to a Vehicle Phone. If you don't have one, don;t connect it to anything andmake sure you put tape over the end so it doesn't touch ground or a power source.
In cases where I don't have or cannot get a wiring harness adapter to plug directly into my vehicle wiring harness I have a trick I like to use. I don't like to cut and remove a vehicle harness socket, I may want to keep the aftermarket stereo when I sell or trade and put the original stereo back in place. Instead of removing the socket I skin back (but do not cut) the wires I need to tap into and wrap the aftermarket unit's wires around the now exposed socket wiring, then solder each one & wrap each one individually with electrical tape. This gives you a secure connection and when and if you need to permanently remove the aftermarket unit you just untape the wires, clip the fatermarket wires off one at a time very close to where they are tapped in, tape each one of them again and there you have the factory plug ready to plug back into the factory stereo.
Holding the harness and looking at it as it would plug into the back of the stereo you have 8 wires in the top half of the harness and 4 in Tue bottom. Working left to right on the top half first is the rear left speaker, front left speaker, front right speaker and rear right speaker. The positive speaker wires are on top the negatives are on bottom.
For the lower half of the harness you have 1 wire in the top row and 3 in the bottom. The one on top is the switched wire to turn the stereo on and off with the ignition. The bottom row from left to right is ground, and 2 constant power wires for stereo memory you can use left right or both to connect to your stereo's memory lead. I hope this helps I was looking to and had to map the wires using some educated guessing and a multi-meter.
The best way to install a stereo deck is go get yourself a Scoshe wiring harness. This will allow you to wire the harness directly to the stereo, then plug directly in to the OEM wiring clip that is plugged into the factory stereo. It helps if and when you sell the truck and want to put the factory stereo back in. Plus you dont have to hack up wires. Hope it helps. You can get the wiring harness from any car stereo installation or customization shop.
Sounds like you have the ground for the radio hooked up to the illumination ground wire. Check for orange or orange/black wire coming from the radio harness. Did you buy the harness for the car as well? If so then just match all the colors of wires from the car harness and the radio harness. By car harness I mean the harness that plugs into the harness that the original factory radio plugged in to.
You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.

First, goto a store and buy a snap in wire harness and a mounting kit. There are wire diagrams in the packaging. Wire your wire harness into the radios wire harness (everything is color coded). Follow the intructions to install the mounting kit. It should tell you what screws to remove from your dash and so forth. Just remeber were everything goes. Next, after you remove the old radio, snap in you wire harness to the cars wire harness. Then, test the radio to see if it powers up and all speakers are working. Lastly, put you radio in your dash, and put everything back togeather. The number one rule in installation is take your time. If you rush, you will brake something.
