Hi, I've got a 98 Holden Rodeo TF LX Spacecab that I've just bought a new headunit for. The headunit came with a universal wiring harness (one of the ones that just has the socket on the headunit end, and cutoff wires on the other). I need some help with wiring the new harness up. I have no idea what colours to connect to what colours, as i can't find a wiring diagram anywhere! I've found a few on random sites, but for a different year model and the colours don't match up to what I have.

The colour wires I have on the car end of the harness are
Black (obviously ground, but that's the only one I know!)
Red with green stripe
Red with blue stripe
Green with red stripe
Red with white stripe
Yellow
Blue
Green
Grey

I need to know what colour wires correspond to what ie. left/right speaker +/-, 12v constant, 12v ignition etc etc
A wiring diagram for my specific model car will suffice, but I don't know if I trust my untrained eyes to read it correctly! So if you have a few extra minutes spare, and spell out what each wire does, I will probably love you forever!
Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance

Don't worry guys, I figured it out.
The main part of my confusion was that there was 9 wires and I only needed 7 of them, and I couldn't figure it out!
But I managed to do a little logic work, and a lot of guess work, and figured it out with no blown fuses! Phew!

Your head unit should have come with a wiring diagram. Glad you worked it out as those are some odd colours. What brand was it?

Sorry it probably would've helped if I noted that I needed a car wiring diagram, not the head unit diagram :S.
The new head unit is a pioneer, but it has fairly understandable wire colours, and it did come with a wiring diagram. The old head unit was a Eurovox factory cassette player (hence my desperate need for a new one!), but even that was slightly more understandable than the wires coming from the loom. I blame Isuzu!
