You will need a voltmeter. Normally red is power, black i ground, yellow is memory power. the best way to know for sure is to use a voltmeter to test what each wire is recieving in power and when. If the key is off then the wire that has 12volts dc is for memory and the main power wire should be at 0volts dc. When the key is on that wire should have power now. the ground will be black on that car. Good luck.

Yo most likely have a bad speaker or the amplifier IC inside the radio is bad. More often than not, it is the amp IC.
first double check that you have all speakers connected right and that you don't have a speaker wire that may have an exposed area that could be shorting against the car chassis.
You can check the speakers by disconnecting them one at a time and see if the sound returns to the remaining speakers that are still connected. After checking one speaker, re-connect it and try another.
If the sound returns after dis-connecting one speaker, that speaker is your problem.
If none of this helps, you will need to get it serviced. If you are skilled with soldering and can dis-assemble and then properly re-assemble a radio, this is a very easy fix and I can look up the part number for you of the amp IC. it is also right on the IC itself. If the amp IC is blown up badly, you will see burn markes on it and sometimes a piece of it can be blown right off of it. In that case you will not be able to read the part number.
Normal repair cost for this type of a problem run between $80 and $120 at most shops, depending on the shops rates.
This is a very high end cassette player and in it's day cost about $400 back in 1997 when it came out. But todays car stereos are nearly as good built, and cost much less.
You can get a good car stereo with CD for about $150, cheap ones for $100.
Let me know if you need any further help, and if you found that this information was helpful a good rating would really be appreciated.
Thanks and have a great day,
