What color goes to which speaker?

Check the following link:

The directions on page 4 indicate:
White = Front Left Speaker
Gray = Front Right Speaker
Green = Rear Left Speaker
Purple = Rear Right Speaker

The plain colored wire is the + side of the speaker.
The colored wire with a black stripe is the - side.

I cant get the rear speakers to play on my pioneer deh-p3000ib.

Sounds like you have
1) the rear speaker cable is plugged into the wrong colored hole
2) the audio software thinks you have a subwoofer, but you don't? Check on the audio software for ways to configure the speakers, the latest chips auto-detect when you plug in a cable, and ask you what that was you plugged in.

Hi!, use a multimeter to test (With the car key in "ACC" position) from what cable your old stereo was receiving power, when you found the correct cables, mark them.
Then test what cables carries the audio signal to the speakers, you can do this by using a AA battery and connecting it to the cables for a short time, the speaker would make noise, label the cables as R or L.
The connections in the PIONEER's plug are:
RED: Accesory (This is powered when the key is in ACC position only)
YELLOW: Back-up (This is ALWAYS powered from the battery to keep the clock and other settings)
White / striped white: Speaker (FRONT R or L)
Gray / Striped gray: Speaker (FRONT R or L)
Purple / striped purple: Speaker (REAR R or L)
Green / striped green: Speaker (REAR R or L)
Blue: REMOTE (Don't connect)
All striped cables are the minus (-) pole of the speakers.
I don't remember what color are for R or L speakers but i know what are front or rear ones, the installation manual can tell you the correct wiring or you can use a test CD, or the balance/fader controls when everything are connected.
