Hey y'all!
I have a 97 Dodge Dakota and I'm installing a basic Dual radio in, whoever put in the 1st aftermarket radio just cut all the wires! So I have a green w/red stripe wire that to my best guess connects to the yellow battery wire & a light pink wire that controls my interior/cargo lights that i can't figure out where to connect! Any ideas!?

Get a cheap voltmeter/multimeter for around $10, can save your lots of trouble, found this around the web:
