1995 Aftermarket Stereo Install Problem

Hi all, I just bought a 1995 Ranger XLT 3.0 last night, and today I'm upgrading the stock radio. I'm having an issue with determining what wires are for the speakers, I bought a harness, so I've already got power to my new deck. (The harness plugged in to give me power, but didn't have anything to plug into the speakers...)

I've already searched around from different sources and non of which seem to match up to what is in my truck.

It looks like the colors I have are:
Light blue/pink stripe
Light blue
Green/ black stripe
Green/ red stripe
Orange/ black stripe
White/ red stripe
Purple/ white stripe
Light green
White/ orange stripe
Light blue/ black stripe

The colors that the harness I attached to are:
Black/green stripe
Light blue/red stripe
yellow/black stripe
Green/ purple stripe

If anyone can help me out that would be appreciated!!!

Should be there

Weird, they should be there. Normally the speakers are wired into that harness from stock, unless the vehicle has an aftermarket setup with the speakers run through an amp then maybe try to find the L and R wires. They look like rca wires

1995 Rangers could also have a separate stock factory amp, Premium Sound system, usually with CD Player in 1995

Ranger radio wiring diagrams here: https://therangerstation.com/tech_li...diagrams.shtml

Looks like you have an 8 pin connector for power and a 16 pin for audio, that would mean Premium sound system
Basic Radio just had 8 pin for audio and 8 pin for power

Factory amp is usually in passenger kick panel or behind glove box
