I would have to see it to tell ya but ill take a guess from memory for ya
blue with white line is power antenna
And the rest should just be speakers and those depend on the car

You just need to color match the speaker wires.
And you do have a harness for it right?
Is it a aftermarket stereo?

Did you cut the wire harness yet? God pleas say no. . .

The harness that is into the car no you do NOT want to cut.
You dont really need to cut any thing
We will start from scratch here.
1st take stock radio out up clip the harnesses
then with the new harness connect the wires with the new radio with the new harness
then plug into car and play.

Thats poor lazy craftsmanship, when i bought my z the wires were connected with electrical tape.
I wigged out and took it out and spent about 2 hours rewiring it to make it perfect

Check the wiring again make sure there are no bare wires.
And make sure they are connected right

If you look at all the wires that are the same color, one of them should have a white or black stripe down it. Usualy only the speaker wires do this, the black stripe should go to the negitive side of your speaker. Keep looking for a new diagram there should be one out there with the correct wire labels.

The speaker wires should be grouped together. No mention in my haynes as to what is pos and neg for the speakers though.
