Here is what my info says the wire colors should be at the radio. Some of the speaker wires change colors at the speaker ends.

Grn=hot at all times, Blu/Yel=power, Blk=ground, Wht/Blk=antenna.

Wht & Blu/Blk= Right Front.
Yel & Blu/Red= Left Front
Yel/Wht & Blu/Red= Left Rear
Wht/Blu & Blu/Blk= Right Rear

Note: The front and rear speakers each share a common lead with their respective sides.

Ok. What are the colors you have. Maybe I can match those with another print. Also, I assume you looking at the radio plug end, is that correct? If you are trying to install another radio unit they do have wire harness adapters available so you don't have to cut the stock plug off.

Well it looks like my info doesn't match what you have for some reason. You still should be able to figure it out though.

Using a meter I would first find the constant power lead for the memory. Then turn on the accessories and find the power lead for the radio and the ground (black probably). Then find the speaker leads by ohmming out the wires. Take one lead and then run through the rest of the wires until you see around a 8 ohm reading. That will be one pair. Then take another lead and do the same thing until you find all the leads.

Edit: Remember, two of the wires should be common to the front and rear speakers on each side. One to the right side and one to the left side.
