In most makes and models the red & white are your power, the yellow is the dimmer (if applicable) black is ground, grays, purples, blues, are usually your speaker wires, look at the wires them selves some have writing on them to say what they do, and a wire with a marking on it such as a strip or line is your negative wire (for speakers)
hope that helps

Might be able to get an adaptor that plugs straight in painlessly.
Failing that it's the standard trace and identify method that eats time like crazy.

I dont know which color wires are for what!


Dont know if you tried this already but go to a car audio store and ask for an adapter the plugs into your stereo and then it plugs into the factory wiring harness. its easier and cleaner and less stressfull. if you done so write back and Ill see if I can send you a pick or something.

you should never cut the wires on your factory harness... metra and other companys have harnesses that fit your car and would provide you with a correct wire color code you need to hook up a aftermarket stereo keep that in mind but i will post the wire diagram u are looking for
