    I would have to see it to tell ya but ill take a guess from memory for ya

    Red=power
    Black=ground
    blue=remote
    blue with white line is power antenna
    orange= dimmer
    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?

    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.

    White/black- front left negative

    gray- front right speaker positive
    gray/black- front right negative

    purple- rear right speaker positive
    purple/black- rear right negative

    green- rear right speaker positive
    green/black- rear right negative

    blue- remote line

    blue/white- power ant

    black- ground

    red- ignition

    yellow- battery+

    orange- lamp

    I dont know what harness this is but it was in the car when i got it ..

    Yellow-12v constant
    orange-acc, switched 12v
    dk blue-amp. Only if you have monsoon.
    gray-left front speaker
    tan-left front speaker
    dk green-rt front speaker
    lt green-rt front speaker

    brown-lights on. Shouldnt need this. Just tape it up if it is bare
    gray-illumination. Shouldnt need this either.

    lt blue-rt rear speaker
    dk blue-rt rear speaker
    yellow-left rear speaker
    brown-rt rear speaker
    black-ground.
    The speaker wires should be grouped together. No mention in my haynes as to what is pos and neg for the speakers though.
