On the 2009, the constant is light green/purple. The accessory/switched is grey/yellow. The ground is black/orange. Normally, the packaging that comes with the harness adapter has the correct color stamped on the packaging.

yes i've read that online too but the thing is that i dont see:
constant - light green/purple
accessory/switched - grey/yellow

only:
ground - black/orange

is it on those smaller connecters? i guess not right?

Usually, the color wiring codes are stamped on the plastic packaging for the smaller connector. You may have to use the multimeter to test for constant and switched.

I have a SolarVox 8 Track Car Stereo unit, only 4 wires, one red, one black, one green and one grey, I think the red and black could be power, and the others speaker wires, what do you think, your help would be appreciated.
i've used a multimeter to see which wire has power on it.
in my case there was no constant power wire only one wire had power after i turned the ignition on.

u should use a mulitimeter too or an instrument to measure the wires.
