trying to figure out which fuses to tap into

I have a Kenwood KOS-A300 Factory Radio Upgrade System. It used to be in a Honda Odyssey and worked great. Sold the vehicle, but pulled this Kenwood system out before I sold it.

It has red and yellow wires so needs to be directly hooked into the fuse box for power. I did this for the Honda, but I am looking to now install it in a 1994 Nissan pickup.  Not sure which fuses to tap into though. Is there any way of getting a hold of some sort of fuse diagram for this vehicle? And which ones would I tap into for each wire (red and yellow)?

there is no "harness" available as its an auxilary add-on component. Plugs into an AUX port on the car stereo. Here is what I am referring to:

KENWOOD KOS-A300

It still needs some sort of power via its own yellow and red cables

you need to run a cable directly to the battery positive and negative.  Get a multi-meter and test each fuse and see the voltage readings with the car off, mark it off on a list. Then turn the car on and measure voltage readings again. Anything that has a voltage reading only after the car turns on is a remote turn on.

OK, I may be able to do this, but I just thought of something else that may actually work better. I installed a Pioneer radio in this truck years ago. Did it all myself so can easily take out the head unit. Was then thinking maybe I could just tap into the current red and yellow wires that are connecting this Pioneer radio via its wire harness. Would this possibly work as well?
