How do I use the Metra Harness wire for the Mitsubishi Eclipse?

I bought the wire harness and it's only got 4 wires to it. The wire that comes with my car stereo has 10 wires.

There are two different Metra wire harness; cars with amplifier, cars without amplifier.

It's the one with the Amplifier. The Metra harness only has 4 wires to it and the stereo I bought has more than 4 so I'm not sure what to do with the extra wires.

Then only use those 4 wires.

The other wire is for the audio.

So which of those 4 wires do I connect it to?.. What do I do with the other hanging wires?

Oh.. Okay.. So I don't need to use all the wires. But now I don't know which wires to connect it to because my stereo doesn't have the orange wire.

edit: I bought the Pioneer 6400BT

Look up the instructions/manual and match them up.

Hint#1 : Usually color to color match up, but double check just in case.
Hint#2 : You do not need to wire up the orange cable.



Hint#3 : Disconnect car battery before doing any electrical/electronic work.
