    Your problem is gonna be Constant 12V. your yellow and red wire from radio are probly gonna be hooked up to the same wire in the car. And you might wanna check your fuses before anything. To find your Constant 12V without using the wire color guide get your 12v current tester and check the remaining wires till one makes your tester light up and that your Constant 12V that keeps your memory and clock ect.
