You might have to Google this to find out. I don't have a factory service manual for your car.

Attachment 24289
Orange is illumination
Yellow is 12V Constant
Red is Accessory
Black is Ground
the rest are speaker wires. use a test lead i used a RCA to 3.5mm using one of the pole pieces and then the outer sheilding that wraps the rca to the female Rca jack and it produced a weak signal off a phone. just to ID which one is what.

Why didn't you use adapters? You just plug that into the adapters and splice the wires off the adapters to the headunits harness... They're like 8 bucks.
