I've searched all over the internet and would greatly appreciate a daigram of the stereo wires in the 04 model. I bought a harness and they sold me the wrong one but its for my sisters car so i was in a rush to get her her car back and figured i would just cut the cars harness and splice the wires until I can't figure out which wire is which, the only 2 i know i have are the goldish with red strip which is main power and the black, which is ground. Please someone that knows or has a harness, go check and make a list.

if you get a AA battery and put two wires together you could tell which wires are for what speakers tried the harness didnt fit.

well i went to circuit city to pick up a harness so i could buy then return it since i already cut the stock harness, but i left my wallet in my car and it was a pain in the ass to get alll the way to the back to the garage so i ended up not buying it. But ya, right now I can turn the key and the radio will light up and u hear it do something then shut off, with just the yellow and the ground plugged in.. and i Have the yellow plugged into the goldish wire with a red strip.
