Stereo Wiring

Just know I don't have a clue what names are for anything.
So I'm pretty much lost at this point.. I have 2005 Cobalt and when I bought it, the stock stereo was just sitting in it's place not wired or anything. I bought an aftermarket stereo to put in. All of the wires were cut so I can't simply just connect a wiring harness and be done.. I've found the ground(black) and constant power(red&white) but I can't seem to find the accessory wire.. I'm using a test light and just no luck. Anyone know what wires are what? (I do have steering wheel contols too!) Any help would be appreciated!

List of wires I'm looking at:
Red
Black & white
White & black
Tan
Yellow
Gray
Brown
Dark green
Light green
Teal
Dark blue
Dark blue(yes two of them)
Light blue

This has a pretty good breakdown - and comparing it to what you'll typically find in an aftermarket radio, as well.

Yellow should be your ignition-hot wire.
