The harness has these wires:
NONE -- Ylw/Blk -- Ylw/Wte -- Grn -- Ylw ----- Rd/Grn -- Blk
ORNG -- GRAY ----- White -- NONE -- Ylw/Red -- Red -- Blue
The blue wire on the end has a 5A Fuse
If have exhausted my resources, so hopefully someone here has gone through this and can help.
There arent any adapters available (that i have found), and i dont have the time or know-how to re-wire everything. I cut the male wire plug off the old stereo, so i can connect the plug off the new stereo wire to wire with the old. I would REALLY like to have my new one in.. so any help greatly appreciated.

White = Hot at all times
Grn/White = Auto Antenna
Red = Lighting Switch
Blue / Yellow = Hot on Run & Acc.
On the new CD player, the book doesnt say anything bout a Lighting Switch, but it does say Constant Pwer Supply, Accessory/Switched Pwr, and Power antenna turn on. So what do i do with the Lighting Switch wire? Also, there were to black wires on the old harness, both next to eachother - are they both grounds? Also, cd player only has one ground wire, so is it okay to just pick one for a ground or what??

Also, the wires have, i swear, no apparent color matching or anything. One side of the radio wire harness the wires are one color, the continuation on the other plug is a different color. The wires at the speaker are a different color than they are at the plug, and there arent any coresponding or opposite wires (like blue and blue/black etc), so re-wiring is definately the way to go, not to mention that stupid common connections crap .
The back speakers i have already wired, so everything should be good to go except the front speakers - pending a board members reply or me finding a way . So for now, i may just go with a two (back) speaker setup.
Im also swapping out the auto antenna with a regular old antenna. the auto is a real piece, and isnt workin well anyway so its gonna be gone. i dont forsee any problems with this swap, but then again i havent been having the best luck lately
long story short, let me know if you got some advice on the front speakers.

I cant tell you (though im sure many know) how good it felt to turn on the car, here the cd, then have the radio work too!! - Ive been without music for a long time..
Subynut: If i use the existing front speaker wires, wont it be all messed up still because of that common ground or whatever? If not, great! but i want to be sure im not F'n everything up.
BTW, the auto antenna removal went pretty well. Has anyone ever fixed theirs? Right now the antenna and plastic white inside thing with the ball stopper on the end is seperate from the motor, is fixing it fairly simple? I think ill tackle that next weekend.
Thanks for all your advice and support!1
