If you could direct me to a color diagram for the schematics of the wiring and any info that I have a 2003 dodge caravan sport 3.8, and want to install a aftermarket stereo. When I took out the old radio I seen a big mess of wires all spliced in multiple spots and different color wire that wont match the harness I bought, I even went to a scrap yard and couldnt find what I needed.

Please help my wife is gonna kill me if she sees the dash like this

Do you have Infinity speakers? The word "Infinity" will be on the door speaker grilles, or you'll see four wires going to each door speaker instead of just two.
