Here is an easy way to figure it out. Inside the dash where the old radio was, you should be able to find the speaker wires. You should have two that run to each speaker, positive and negative. If you aren't sure about whether this is the correct pair of wires, I've got an easy way for you to find out. Just take a AA (1.5v) battery and touch each wire to one end of the battery just for a second, You'll hear a click come of the appropriate speaker. If you don't hear a click you either have a bad speaker or you have the wrong set of wires.
Once you locate the speaker cables you can just hook them up to the radio. From what I can tell on the internet, this radio is very simple. Red wire goes to the power supply, you will have to find a nearby wire with power from the old radio or you can tap into an existing wire for something else like the cigarette lighter. Just be aware that some wires only have power when the ignition key is on, so keep that in mind, depending on whether you want the radio to go off when you take the key out. Next you should see a black wire, this connects to the body of the vehicle, it is called a chassis ground. Find somewhere metal on the body of the car, and attach it there with a screw and washer. Make sure it is a good solid connection, you don't want it falling off or shorting out. You may see an existing ground wire from the old radio, they are usually black or brown or another dark color. Next you have left channel speaker, and right channel speaker, those should attach to the positive cable of the speaker on the appropriate side. The positive is usually marked with a white stripe or some sort of ridge embossed into the plastic insulation of the speaker wire. The two negative speaker wires will both connect to the chassis ground where you connected the black radio ground wire earlier.
If your wiring setup looks different, or these instructions are unclear, I would recommend you just take the whole works to a car stereo shop and have them put it in for you. If you screw it up you will probably damage or destroy your radio and possibly mess up your car electrical system also.
