Trouble installing radio in a 2000

I had a Crutchfield harness that does not match up so I started to hard wire the radio in. Everywhere I check on the internet they say the constant power wire is a light green wire with a pink trace. My truck does not have any pink anything. So far I was able to find a switched power that is a black wire with a purple trace.

I have the following color wires

Green with orange trace
white with green trace
blue with red trace
grey with blue trace
orange with green trace
solid black
2 wires that are black with a purple trace (one of which I believe is the switched source that lit up my test light with the key on)
tan with yellow trace
2 black with green trace
blue with white trace
green with black trace


Does anyone know which wire is which? Thanks

None of them are hot with the key off. Maybe a fuse is blown? Do you know where that fuse is?

Under the steering column should be the radio fuse, there should be a constant (for clock and memory functions) did you already cut the factory harness?

Then the fuse is already blown most likely already

You were right, I replaced the fuse and I found the constant right away. It was a green wire with a black trace
