Sorry, I don't have the right diagram, but I will walk you thru finding the color code.
Connect a test light or voltmeter to ground and probe each terminal with the key off.
The one that has power is called hot and is used to maintain your station presets.
Turn the key on, and you will find another terminal. That is the accessory wire that powers the radio.
Next, hook the test clip to the hot terminal and probe the terminals again. The wire that yields a voltage will be the ground--It's probably black

    Question--does your amp have a power switch?

    Since there is no amp turn on wire in the factory stereo, you will need a switch somewhere to turn the amp off. Otherwise, it will be on whenever you start the car.

    If your meter includes an ohms function, you can find the speaker wire pairs.
    Each speaker will have between 4 and 8 ohms.
    Connect the probe to one wire and probe the rest until you find one that has only 4-8 ohms.
    You will not know which speaker it is without accessing the speakers.

Stereo error code

The code for the radio needs to be input. the radio must have been disconnected from the battery.
look for the code on a card in the glove box. if no card, then u have to pull the stereo out and get the serial # to the dealership.
