HELP!! does anyone knows how to......

hookup a double din pioneer deck on the 2003 toyota matrix? I've already tooken out the stock deck that comes with the car and also bought a wiring harness for the deck that I want install. But the pioneer have so many differ color wires. I don't know which wires means what on the pioneer. I do know that red is supposed to be the power but on the pioneer it doesn't have any solid red. If anyone knows how to wire the pioneer please help me. Am having difficulty. I would rather do this on my own then to pay almost $100 for installation. So please help this gal out

Your deck should come with manual which will tell you what color wire is what. If not try Pioneer website and see if you can dl one. Never buy anything without manual.
BTW, what model number is it?

List the wire colors from the Pioneer harness. BTW, make sure the harness adapter you have is the GM-type, not the typical Toyota-type.

Here are the colors.....

Ok, first off there's two connectors that came with the pioneer. A big one and a lil' one. The big one I think is the one needed. Big connector color wires are:

thick black w/green line

thick green w/purple line

thin green w/white line

2 thin white w/purple lines

thin blue w/yellow line

thin tan w/white line

thin blue w/orange line

thin tan w/green line

thin green w/orange line

thin green w/purple line

2 thin red w/black lines

thin black w/copper wire

thick black w/silver wire



The lil' connector wires are:

thin solid green

thin solid black

thin yellow w/black line

thin green w/black line

thin baby blue w/red line



My wiring harness that I bought already have a instruction on what wires are what and also is written on all the wires so I don't have a problem there just the ones that I've mention above for the pioneer unit. Also, I didn't buy the lil' wiring harness. Thought maybe it wasn't neccassry but if it is let me know. Thanks.

If I knew I would've search for the model # but

I can't find the model # anywhere on the pioneer. There's only one stick placed on there and is doesn't say anything about model #. Also, I have went to pioneerelectronic.com and looked at all their manuals plus HU to see if any looks similar but still no luck. :help:
