Backup (constant power) +12v = Dark Green / Yellow
Switched Power +12v = Dark Blue / White

Ground = Black wire with tab.

Your after market stereo won't share the same colors, but will run along the lines of red switched, yellow constant etc.

Was the deck that you removed the original unit or an aftermarket one?
If it was the original one then providing you haven't blown a fuse the wiring you want will be in the plug make sure that you use a good ground when testing...
