Replacing head unit in 2000 Mustang GT

I have a 2000 GT and I am having a terrible time figuring out how to install a new head unit. When I first bought it I had wires all spliced up in the back but the system was working. I wanted to add my own amp to run a sub box which I later figured out that I had to connect the line out converter to my high frequecy connectors. Any way it was working fine until I kept hearing the rear speakers even when the car was turned off, which later resulted in my battery going dead. Well needless to say I just disconnected both my amps and removed the factory head unit all together. I noticed that none of the wires that are connected to the head unit are speaker wires, they are ground, 12V and a bunch of other wires I am not sure what they are. All I want to do is be able to hook up a new HU and it's becoming a pain. Can someone please help?

Thanks this should help, but I have about three extra wires. I guess I have three different settings for turning on the radio when the car starts. Are these important or do I just need the one 12v wire hooked up?
