I have connected all but 2 wires from the harness to stereo. There are 2 wires that im not sure about. A bluw/white and orange/white. The have a fitting on the ends and have a plastic cover on them. I do have bluw/white and orange/white coming from the stereon. should i splice the wires together or do they connect into those fittings.

Blue/White is normally Amp turn on or Power antenna. The Orange is also usually Illumination. I never use the illumination.

Blue/white is needed to turn on the factory amp if you're still using it. Some aftermarket radios require the illumination wire to light some of the buttons and others just use it to dim the display at night when your headlights are on.

okay so do i splice them to the harness as i did the speaker wires. those 2 wires have metal tips on them. just cut them off and splice?

If you were to use them, then yes just wire them the same way.
