yes, i do have a wiring harness for the stereo, but no plug on the car end of the wires, all that is fitted is male/female bullet conecters.

as for the year, do you mean the car or stereo??

Bunch one will be your power and ground wires, best way to figure out for sure is to get a test light and find your constant and acc power, (constant always on, acc only on when the car is on) and for ground, you can make your own new ground connection to a metal part of the chassis. )

Bunch 2 are speaker wires, they should be in pairs of the same base colour.

It really helps if you were to find a friend who has some experience in this to help you out or do some searchig on the internet to find out which exact wires are yours.

I believe www.installdoctor.com has some helpfull info
