well the basic wires are usually either Red/Yellow are power and black is ground. i just installed a Cd player in mine and had to do some trouble shooting cause the previous owner cut the wires. i had to get down and follow some wires to figure out he added different color wires solderd onto the red/yellow and black wires

the "premium" part is an amplifier. All the wires should be behind the radio part of the dash.

you should be able to see the wires when the radio is out. a bundle of wires on the left which is the power/ground etc wires and the bundle of wires to the right should be all the speak wires.

what happens if i take it out?? Because i found out last night that the person cut the wires out that lead to the aplifyer. thats why i cannot find a diagram with the right colors. Because the only wires that are there are the ones for the amp. wich is not enough to run all the speakers. I would just take it out anyway. if i should take it out how and where should i disconnect it??

sounds like you need to take it to a stereo shop and get it fixed or you might fug things up...........
