I don't suppose there is anyone who can solve this for me, but worth a try I guess.

My car radio has the standard radio harness.
My car has 14 randomly coloured wires (no harness).

Does anyone have an idea about what any of these wires are?

1) pink / black
2) pink / white
3) green / black
4) green / orange
5) blue / red
6) blue / orange
7) yellow / blue
8) yellow
Nos 1-8 possibly the speaker wires?

9) red / black
10) orange
11) purple
12) pink
13) black / yellow
14) black / pink
Nos 9-14 to connect to ignition / ground / dash light / power antenna / battery ?

One of the wires (black / yellow) is very big and fat
Whenever you touch another wire to the pink one the aerial jumps up and down, except for the orange wire which doesn't make it do anything.

Oh dear, this must be one my most bizare posts ever grin
