Default Installing new head unit.. Which wire for steering wheel controls?

Hi, I'm installing a new Kenwood head unit inside my 1996 Olds LSS.. I'm making sure I know which wire goes to which, before starting. Does anyone know which wire (coming from the car) is for the steering wheel volume and seek buttons? (or wires) The head unit I purchased has a wire for the controls, but in every diagram I can find, they dont list that. Any help?

Those wires should already be in the connectors which connect to the back of the factory unit. You should have the adapters to connect the factory connectors to the aftermarket unit. Hopefully this will help, or, you may have to get a hold of the company which made your aftermarket unit.
