Default Radio Installation

I have just bought a 1992 Bonneville SSE. The problem is that the radio was taken out because they thought it was draining the battery. Now, in the process of reinstalling it, I have tons of wires loose and none of them labeled. They seem to be somewhat color coded but there are many of the same color. If someone knows how to do this and could help me along this would be great. Thanks.

Well, no. The connector is still there that goes to the radio. It'* just the wires from the car that are supposed to go to the connector are cut somewhere in the middle. So I have wires coming from the radio and wires coming from the car, I am just not sure which ones connect to which ones. Can anyone help? Or would it be smarter just to take it to someone who could do this for me?

So the wire from the connector are cut, is the connecter still there? If so then you just match up colors...

Yup if you got the connector with wires coming out of it and the hole for the radio has wires coming out of it.... play a lil match game and splice the wires together.

Did you check for traces on the wires... i.e. a orange wire with a small white line going down it?

Yes, I know about color coded wires. But this car'* wiring is all screwed up. None of the interior lights work, the power mirrors don't work, and now the radio seems to be doomed. Anyways, I have been connecting the same colors. But there are too many wires coming from the car. I dont have enough places to connect them all. Also, there is a white wire coming from the connector. But no white wire coming from the car. I am really lost!
